Psst. . . want to know the hottest ticket for Fall??? The checked blazer. I know, right? Doesn’t sound too sexy. Until you check out all the street style picts from Paris and Milan Fashion Weeks. The ladies of the street are looking way hip and jaw-droppingly gorgeous in their wool, checked blazers. You can totally rock your LSD when you take the checked blazer in a fresh new direction — pair it with a slim pair of black, cropped, boot cut denim (ones from Madewell are my all time faves – having a hard time taking them off these days), a chic tote (like the Balenciaga ones that have by now attained cult following status), and a smart poplin blouse, with maybe a . . . wait for it . . . pussybow (I know!! I know!!! But – legit – it IS one of the biggest tops of the season) or a ruffle.
My favorite wool checked jacket right now is the brown and blue one from J.Crew. But, I am also loving ones from H & M (seriously, in my shopping cart as we speak — remember to size up with H&M!!), Veronica Beard (more on their blazers later), Zara, Mango (hyper-ventalating over that one!!).
Some parting notes: don’t be afraid of white shoes — they are def AF. Also, this Giles & Brother jewelry is laying down a major Céline vibe. Word.
A few street style pics and a mood board to help you pick up with I am putting down.
