As long as a blazer fits your body well, there is no way to go wrong with this jacket. A classic casual way to wear it is with a plain t-shirt and jeans. However, this jacket can be worn with numerous items such as long, flowy casual dresses, colorful miniskirts, and even Bermuda shorts and tights. There is, of course, the formal way to wear a blazer is with a suit or a business casual dress. But there is so much versatility with a blazer.
2. Fitted leather jacket
Here is a classic item that will never go out of style. Perfect for a breezy night on the town, a fitted leather jacket is bound to take your outfit up a notch. The great thing about a leather jacket is that it is not bulky, but it keeps you warm. It’s perfect for the fall when wearing a scandalous outfit to a nightclub or even on a casual day outdoors.
3. Cardigan sweater
Cardigans are a staple item in my closet. I keep them around for warmth when I want to wear that sleeveless dress and stay work appropriate. A cardigan sweater is a defining piece in any outfit. If the sweater is long enough, it can be worn as a dress with a belt on the waist, a top with leggings, or even be worn under a casual vest. A cardigan sweater will keep you warm and leaves room for more layering if you want.
4. Trench coat
A trench coat has a way of making any ensemble classy. I love trench coats—this jacket will never go out of style. This jacket can be worn with jeans, dresses, leggings…you name it. Depending on the material of the coat, it may even be suitable for a classier affair. Regardless of the occasion, a trench makes everyone look good. This is one of those items of clothing that fits every body shape, every time. Not to mention you can now wear one to look like Olivia Pope.
Capelets are items that have slowly been emerging onto the fashion scene, and are becoming more and more mainstream. A capelet is a cloak-like sweater, usually with slits to fit ones arms through. They are incredibly trendy and very warm as well. There are many different versions of capelets such as some with patterns, long ones, shorts ones, and the list goes on. These capelets look great with a pair of jeans and are easy to throw on when you can’t find a top to wear. They can be worn indoors as well to make a statement.
As I stated earlier, the fall is a great time to get funky with your jackets. Don’t let the cold weather stop you from looking chic. There is a long list of fall jackets just waiting to be worn, so get out there and try something new!
