STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Blazin’

Style Advice of the Week

It’s November and pumpkin-carving season is already over. But here’s to holiday season, the most wonderful time of the year! Stores are stocking up on Thanksgiving decorations, sidewalks are painted red, yellow and orange with leaves and holiday party invitations are being sent out. I’ve already caught myself daydreaming about a stomach full of sweet potatoes, stuffing and cranberry sauce. Speaking of cranberry sauce…

I ran into this Fashionisto rocking my favorite color of the season on Newbury Street the other day. Needless to say, I can’t get enough of this dark cranberry color. He opted for a maroon tweed blazer layered over a V-neck sweater for a casual and refined look on this fall afternoon.

A good blazer can make all the difference. You can easily turn a casual day ensemble into a sophisticated look for a night out with a black blazer. Or try pairing a summer sundress with a light blazer and you’ll ace that job interview! A longer blazer can be paired with a cocktail dress, pulling together a masculine-feminine look. Everyone should have a black blazer in his or her closet because it’s as versatile as a good pair of dark wash jeans.

This Fashionisto slipped on a Single-Breasted Wool Ben Sherman Blazer before heading to work. I am a sucker for elbow patches. Put an elbow patch on just about anything and I’ll wear it. For a similar look, try pairing this Window Check Blazer with Elbow Patches from Zara with a pair of dark wash skinny jeans and a light pullover. This androgynous look is great for class or work.

But if you’re looking for something a little flashier, grab inspiration from the fall runways. Whether Prabal Gurung or Miu Miu, graphic blazers are a great addition to a subdued fall wardrobe. Try this Warehouse Tile Print Jacket from ASOS. If you’re really daring, grab the matching trousers!

Whether you’re off to a holiday party or just sipping on apple cider with a friend, the right blazer will bring your outfit together.
