Winter in New York has set in snow. Literally. We’ve been having some very cold days – but I’m secretly enjoying them. Even though it’s not necessarily a time to wear just a blazer out, you can totally wear it underneath your biggest coat. A plaid blazer is an undeniably essential piece in any girl’s – and guy’s – wardrobe. Last winter, I got quite a few (seen here, here and here) and, recently, my favorite one so far.
A plaid blazer is a classic statement. I remember my father and grandfather always wearing them so gentleman-y. It’s a preppy piece, but I’m glad to spice it up several different ways. With combat boots for an edgier look. Underneath a winter coat with loafers for a dandy feel. Or with a classic feel and basket bag. Im forever trying to achieve the working girl look, since I don’t actually work in an office. Add a plaid blazer and you’re halfway there.
Also, don’t be afraid to explore the men’s section. The blazer pictured is from Zara Man and it was a pleasant surprise. I walked into Zara and bam, there it was waiting for me. With so many choices now, the hardest part is, as always, to choose. So shop below my favorite options to achieve your own working girl look. What do you think about this piece? Yey or nay?
