If you’re starting to curate your fall wardrobe there’s one item that you absolutely must have: the checked blazer.
Already spotted on the biggest fashion icons & influencers, it’s going to be Fall’17 “it” piece. The Scandi vibes and manly style make this blazer a total winner. No wonder it’s selling out so fast in every store.
Although it can be styled in so many different ways, with dresses, jumpsuits… etc, the best way to wear it to achieve the Scandinavian vibes look is simply with a pair of straight leg jeans and a simple tee. Nothing too thought of really. This outfit combo is the definition of effortlessly chic. Add a designer belt or an eye catching bag to elevate this look. As for shoes, running shoes are great to achieve a tomboyish style. For a more put together feel, kitten slingback heels just make this outfit the ultimate Fall’17 look!
With these style of blazers, you’d prefer a rather loose fit. As if you borrowed it from your man’s closet. This blazer style is meant to be a man repeller piece. Kind of like boyfriend jeans but for your upper body. It shouldn’t be form fitting nor accentuating your curves. The boxier and more oversized the better. But, as always be aware of your body shape and what suits you. Although an extremely oversized blazer sounds amazing, as a petite girl, it will easily overwhelm my figure. Therefore, I chose a blazer that’s slightly oversized and boxy but not too exaggerated.
Although the gray version is the most popular right now, you can still stand out while wearing this hot trend by choosing different colors. Mustard and Burgundy are both a good alternative to Gray for the upcoming seasons. Make sure it’s got a checked pattern and a loose fit, and you’re good to go!
Whether you’re looking to save or splurge on this style, there are many options out there. From Prada to Zara, there’s a checked blazer for everyone’s taste and budget. If blazers are your go to then splurging on a great quality piece that’s going to take you from year to year is justifiable. But if it’s just trend that you want to try for this season, then the high street has some great options for you.
