HOW TO WEAR A PLAID BLAZER
There is nothing like the right blazer to make you feel put together and confident. For work, weekends, or evening, a blazer adds an elegant note to an otherwise casual outfit. The new oversized options are as comfortable as pajamas. With sneakers or heels, the right blazer is a versatile closet staple.
If there is one item you need for fall, it’s a plaid blazer. Wear it with a long skirt or mini skirt. Wrap it with a vintage belt. Pair it with your skinny jeans tucked into knee-high boots. Transition it into a jacket worn over a leather blouse. Contrast your green plaid blazer with a bight yellow bag. Go classic dress-up with a dress shirt and jeans. Be sure to tuck your long hair inside the collar. Try it with a vintage t-shirt. Dress it up with a long silk scarf. Go casual with a white t-shirt and your favorite jeans. Or try an oversized plaid blazer, crop top and spandex shorts.
From French girls to Brit girls, from millennials to fashionistas, from celebs to streetstyle stars and bloggers alike; everyone is embracing the plaid blazer. Whether you choose a form-fitting and classic option, or an oversized option, there is a plaid blazer out there for you. It may already be at the back of your closet or at your favorite vintage shop.
