Fall is the perfect season to mix and match layers of clothing and accessories. It’s really the best time for a Fashionista. Think about it—you get to wear all of those great pieces that are hidden away in the closet during the summer months. So rejoice! It’s finally here! It’s time to pull out all of those sweaters, scarves, jackets and boots and rock them everywhere you go.
Here in Savannah, Georgia, the temperatures are just beginning to cool off. It’s chilly in the morning and at night, and it’s warm during the day. The best way to dress for that kind of weather is layering a jacket or cardigan over a great top. On her way to breakfast this morning, this Fashionista did just that. The blazer over the striped sweater is the perfect way to add warmth (and a bit of pizzazz) to a simple outfit. It’s comfortable and casual and undeniably fashionable. The sweater and bright blue shoes add some color, but overall, it’s a pretty simple ensemble. And as we all have come to know, sometimes less is more.
Blazers are no longer garments that are worn just in the workplace. Pairing them with jeans and more casual pieces is absolutely a trend this season. The menswear inspired jacket is not only practical, but its also stylish. Shopbop has a great blazer with the classic tailored silhouette we always see. However, it becomes an even more essential piece for your wardrobe when the fabric is a fine French terry. For something with a bit more glamour, try this metallic ¾ sleeve blazer from Bebe. If you’re looking for that crisp, bespoke silhouette with a little something extra, this color blocked, blue violet blazer from Topshop is the perfect choice.
Spotted: Jason Wu took it one step further with this fur-trimmed blazer from the fall 2012 collection.
