Plaid (a.k.a tartan) is a trend I’m totally embracing this fall and plan on wearing it through winter. The only plaid blazer I owned until this one is a structured blazer but this fall I fell in love (sorry for the pun) with the long oversized style.
It’s such a versatile piece that you can wear at the office and on the weekends. After searching high and low, I finally found the perfect plaid blazer from Free People. I love the classic plaid pattern and the black velvet details on the collar and pockets. Priced at $168, it is a bit pricey but I prefer spending a bit more for getting a quality staple that I know will last many seasons. No worries, I found a similar affordable style from Target.
Here are three ways to style your oversized plaid blazer, also called Boyfriend Blazer.
1.With a short skirt or dress: this is the perfect work look with a bit of an edge to it. I paired this particular look with over-the-knee black suede boots which is one of my favorite fall boots! For a more structured look, you can also belt the blazer. Très chic!
2. With skinny jeans: this is such an effortless chic look. Just wear a simple white or graphic tee like this Levi’s t-shirt with pumps or sock booties.
3. With skinny black leather leggings: wearing an all black outfit like black leather leggings with a turtleneck or sweater is another effortless way to style your plaid blazer! The best part about an oversized blazer is you can wear sweaters underneath!
Styling Tip: Keep the plaid blazer the focal point of your outfit and style it with neutral colors and fitted essentials.
