This Is Not Your Mother’s Blazer!

This year, expect to see your tailored garments stealing the show, and with blazers and classic suits at the lead. Well-cut and neatly-sewn autumn blazers are staples in my closet, which is all the more reason for me to celebrate. This silk blazer from Rag & Bone features a clear pinstripe and basic shoulder pads, and as far as eye-catching outwear goes, it is pretty versatile. The prints this year are generally easy to style, with checked, striped, or monotone choices for any occasion. Pair it with denim and a t-shirt for a relaxed look like I have here, or grab the matching suit pants to embody this year’s obsession with classic tailoring.

If you do end up grabbing an old favorite from your mom’s closet, I promise I won’t tell. Creativity is always your best option when it comes to throw-back staples!

    I absolutely love blazers. I happen to have way too many of them. but to me, they are the easiest way to make an outfit standout, they take outfits from eeh to dayum. i don’t own a striped one like this, but should absolutely check out rag & bone. thanks for sharing.

    Love the blazer, Nicole! It’s super cute and I really the stripe. as for my mother’s blazers, she gave me lots of suits when she lost a lot of weight and I love every piece. my mother has great style, and i always use her as my fashion muse. I have no shame in my fashion game, LOL! Also, I hardly say no to free stuff. LOL. your outfit is classy and chic as always Nicole and I can’t wait what to see what you will whip out of your closet next!

    That is such a great striped blazer! I love it in the last pic especially, beautiful shot.

    I’d really like a striped blazer like this! I’m looking forward to wearing my blazers more now that it’s spring 🙂

    Hope you are having a lovely weekend 🙂
