STRIPED BLAZER: Alexa Chung  |   CLASSIC TURTLENECK: old, under $100 dupes HERE and HERE  |  STRAIGHT-LEG JEANS: old, similar HERE and under $100 HERE  |  LEATHER WAIST BELT: Gucci  |  DISC EARRINGS: Madewell  |  RED LIP: Laura Mercier (Lover)


As you know from my recent Fall/Winter Trend Memo series, this season is all about being bold.  We’ve talked power dressing, vibrant colors and statement accessories, so it’s probably no surprise that statement blazers are on the shortlist of must-haves for fall and winter 2017.

Blazers are having a MAJOR moment, which is pretty awesome for working girls everywhere, ’cause it makes dressing for the office a #cinch.  No more wasting time every morning trying to jumble together an outfit—just throw on your favorite basics and the blazer does all the talking.  Exhibit A: this Alexa Chung striped blazer.  I’ve chosen to style it with my favorite denim and a classic turtleneck for a business casual look, but it can easily be dressed up with the matching trouser (dead) or a sleek burgundy sheath dress (how stunning is this one?!).

When it comes to blazers this season, you can make a statement with vibrant colors, fun textures (got my eye on you, velvet), bold patterns, or interesting detail.  Of course, the biggest blazer trend of the season has to be the classic oversized plaid blazer (I just bought this one!) but below, I’ve rounded up all of my favorites.  I’m obsessing over this double breasted striped blazer (it’s $150!), and this leopard print beauty has me in FULL. SWOON.
