The blazer has made a comeback for fall and winter, friends! From bold colors to seasonal prints like plaid and paisley, this invigorated top layer demands attention. So, how does one jump on the trend yet not get swept up in a sea of sameness? You up the game with velvet, of course! I mean, seriously, this luxe blazer by Tommy Hilfiger (which is priced just a little over $100) will have you perfectly positioned for a sartorial win.
What’s the best part of this resurgence? Well, the blazer is no longer reserved for the office. This structured layering piece is now being paired with denim for casual wear. Take this look, for example, I coupled my hero blazer with a split hem pair of skinny, ankle jeans from 7 For Mankind and a collared, high/low top with a feminine ruffled hem by QUEGUAPA (my latest contemporary designer discovery from Italy) to make one easy breezy way to enjoy this amazing fall weather. Also, since the afternoons are still warm here in NYC, it’s been nice to get a few extra wears out of my Dior slingback, kitten heels (here’s a designer dupe that’s currently on sale for less than $50!).
Below, you can see more of this look, as well as several other hero blazers to add to your fall/winter wardrobe. These champions will look great with your denim now and can be worn over top of your holiday attire later.
