Channeling My Inner Fashion Girl

September is Fashion Month so today I’m channelling my inner fashion girl in one of this season’s hottest trends: The Oversized Plaid Blazer. Given that New York Fashion Week just wrapped up, I’ve been studying the street style from the busy week, and this trend was spotted more than any other. Also, it’s ridiculously easy to pull off. The plaid blazer is available at every price point (my favorite is a Target steal at under $35!) and is super versatile.

I threw mine on with a chic graphic tee (last seen here), skinny jeans and black mule loafers. And let’s just take a pause to chat about these loafers shall we? They are quite possibly the chicest addition to my wardrobe that I’ve made this fall. The black is my favorite and is a spot on dupe for the Gucci mule loafers I’d been coveting, but they also come in silverbrocade and blush velvet (obsessed!).

Ok, back to the plaid blazer. The Plaid Blazer is one of those unique trends that can fit into almost any existing wardrobe. Wear it over your ruffled mini dresses to transition into fall, pair it with leopard booties and play with print-mixing, or keep it Parisian-chic like I did. Seriously, its not often that a piece this practical and this versatile has such a moment. 

At Every Price Point: The Plaid Blazer

There you have it. A piece that will make any look feel polished, with absolutely zero effort required.
