Street Chic Blazers

- Fashion

Take it from a Washingtonian, you can take your blazer from The Hill to the street with relative ease.  They’ve gone beyond business professional and make a perfect pairing for Fall street style.  Don’t get me wrong, you of course can still wear it with slacks and go into the office.  But when 5 o’clock rolls around trade your stress for distressed {jeans} and head to the local watering hole.


Each of the blazers from this post I got from a local designer consignment boutique, Current Boutique.  I’ve linked originals or similar styles below so you can shop them!


My favorite way to pair blazers for Fall are with a graphic tee, distressed skinny jeans and booties.  This style can extend the use of your favorite band tee and give you instant and effortless street cred.  I kept my bottom layer monochrome with my black GNR band tee, black skinny jeans from Zara, and black INC booties from Macy’s and then I layered the blush velvet J. Crew blazer on top.  To be clear, I hate pink, but combining such a feminine piece like a blush pink and velvet blazer with a Guns N’ Roses tee takes the overall look from just edgy to edgy chic.

This look I wrote about in my Whistle & Wild post.  This Banana Republic (Weird, right?!  Wouldn’t have guessed that brand when I saw it!) blazer has fringe details so with that it can’t also have a loud print or too many other intricate details in the rest of the outfit, or the eye wouldn’t know where to look.  I chose the graphic tee with a graphic higher so it broke up my outfit with a cute graphic up top, fringe detail in the center, and these Balmain booties to finish it off on the bottom.  Paying attention to how you’re breaking up the details of your outfit, ends up bringing it all together in the end.

Also a big fan of the blazers as dresses look, minus the bottom hanging out.  If you’re going to do this, keep it classy with some shorts that are in line with the blazer.  I chose skinny shorts cut slightly longer with frayed hems.  This Storets blazer had really great detail beading detail on the sleeve.  I wanted that to be the attention of the outfit so I kept it with a basic white tank underneath and black Schutz boots.  If this is the trend you’re going for, be very cautious when pairing it with pumps.  You don’t want too much leg showing or it takes away from the pulled together look of the blazer and can get trashy.


I’m sure I’ll be posting more blazer looks soon.  I just went to Current Boutique and restocked on some great velvet blazers!  Take your 9-5 look and make it work for 5-9 and BLAZE on, Darlings!
