Blazer Roundup

I’m so not ready to let go of fall, and with it, I’m holding onto my favorite part of the season, blazers. One of the most classic pieces of any wardrobe, blazers are timeless and create a boss babe statement, no matter the occasion. And let’s be honest, under my huge puffer coats, I’ll probably continue wearing blazers all winter long and back into the spring.

I’m rounding up all of my favorite blazers, in hopes that they can add some long term, classic pieces to update your wardrobe!

The gallery is listed in order from cheapest, to most expensive, and can be shopped via the blue links below to pics!

Current number 1 on my wish list. Such a staple closet piece, this tan oversized blazer will be used for years. And not to mention, will be a great contrast piece for my infinite all black outfits. $90

This red blazer is so vibrant and the perfect piece for the holiday season. I adore the structure and it’s a great length. $228

This blazer is absolutely stunning, and so on trend with the mixing of patterns. Love the removable belt as well. $258

Croc it Like it’s Hot

It’s probably the most obvious trend out there as of late, and I still have yet to hop on board. Animal print is everywhere and it’s obviously not going away any time soon. I have yet to buy one leopard sweater and just can’t pull the trigger on snakeskin boots for some reason, but I finally found my animal print you guys. Crocodile embossed leather is where it is at this fall!

Black Work Tote – $128 Black Boots – $70

It’s one of my favorite trends ever as it holds a special place in my heart. My grandmother, who was one of the greatest style icons in my life, always had several croc textured bag in her closet and was always trying to convince me to carry one as well.

I’m so into this trend and can’t wait to fill my closet with it and my heart with memories of my grandma. ❤️

I’ve rounded up my favorite textured pieces, all under $200 (and most under $60!!!) for you guys here. Each piece is linked below the collage in blue. Happy shopping!

Cream Shoulder Bag – $55 Croc Chain Belt – $35 Red Western Bootie – $170 Yellow Mini Bag – $48 Brown Crossbody Bag – $152 Black Flats – $60 Yellow Chloe Dupe – $48 Something Navy Belt – $50 Blue Grey Boots – $180 Green Bag – $48

MY color of the season

The fall fashion week previews told us all about how purple is the new millennial pink, and were filled with pistachio of all colors. Sorry but, I for one, am not on board with dressing like an Easter egg this fall. My favorite part about fashion has always been having the ability to express myself, as simple or trendy as I please. This fall, I’ve decided to pick my own color of the season, and I’ve already found about 50 pieces in it that I’m dying to have. As the stores begin filling with warmer weather clothing, the one thing that keeps catching my eye, everywhere I turn, is the color rust.

Cardigan – $135 Jeans – $78 Sneakers – $95

The orangey-brown hue is on a shelf in every store this season and I can’t wait to get my hands on it and blend in with the autum trees. I’ve picked out some of my favorite pieces so far in rust-like colors to help you start building your fall wardrobe with my new favorite tone of the season, too!

The Top Trends You’ll be Falling for This Season and Those You Should Avoid

Fall fashion is hitting the shelves and will shortly be filling our closets. I for one am SO on board for some of the big trends we are about to start seeing everywhere and can’t wait to share so you all can be ahead of the game! Relaxed suits, all leather looks, romantic detailing, and high necklines graces the runways back in the spring, while brands showed off the looks for the upcoming season, and honestly, I’m here for all those trends (come on, warmth is where it’s at living in NYC.) Monochrome is having a moment and simplicity is making a much needed comeback (right up my alley!!!)

Blazer / Dad Jeans / White Tee / Sneakers

Everything is getting belted this season (think lots of utility jumpsuits and dresses). The first trend I’m hopping on board with this season is belted blazers. Blazers have obviously been having a moment, but this season, they’re getting some flare. Blazers with built in belts, leather belts over plaid blazers, and chains over solid colored jackets are going to be everywhere come October.

Toss aside all that dainty jewelry you’ve been wearing for the past couple years, because chunky jewelry is making a major appearance this fall. Thick gold chain necklaces and bracelets with bigger, wider earrings will be on every wrist, neck, and earlobe.

Along the lines of the relaxed suits, trousers are the new jeans. I am SO here for this cause like, come on, who doesn’t love total comfort at all times, all while being trendy?!

Knee high boots were on every it girl at NYFW. I’m not talking about your typical-blogger skin-tight suede boots, I mean to the knee, slouchy, and lots leather over here. A big trend is to tuck those flows trousers into your knee high boots as well.

Trends I’m Not Backing:

While the all leather looks were stunning on the runway, I can easily promise I will not be purchasing any knee length leather shorts. Just not for me. Leather jackets galore and maybe some leather skirts are all I’m good for on this trend.

Capes are for superheroes-or the two year that I nanny, when she wants to run “super fast”. I just don’t feel like a normal or attractive human with a cape draped over my shoulders and certainly don’t like the look of these vest-type jacket capes.

Quilting and patchwork also were all over the runway last fashion week. Sorry not sorry, but looking like I belong on grandma’s couch just isn’t my taste or style. I’m sure quilted everything is nice and warm, but I can find warmth in style, not just practicality.

Cheers! Mackenzie
