After returning from warm, sunny New Orleans yesterday after a week of sporting t-shirts and flip-flops, I was rather sad to take a look at the Jersey forecast for the week and see that temperatures were planning on dipping down to the 30s. It became real – the days of stripy sandals were over and it was time for cozy layers to prepare for the frigid cold.
So what’s the fashion staple of November work fashion? Blazers, of course, which I actually look forward to sporting because they give me a chance to mix up some prints, colors and fabrics. Before winter gets in full spring, check out my picks for the three blazers you need for your cold-weather wardrobe.
You can’t go wrong with a navy blazer – it’s the perfect staple for fall and gives a bit of color and class to all outfits, while also spicing up some neutral pieces. Plus, it complements other classic-colored pieces as well, like a flannel, jean or striped shirt.
Who doesn’t love a classic style staple like a herringbone blazer? Grab one in shades of gray or black in white and pair with various brights to mix up an otherwise color blocked outfit. A very professional piece that will never go out of style.
A pop of red mixes up neutral colors that are fitting for fall and due to the layering of the piece, it’s an item that is appropriate for work. Try mixing this up with other prints such as leopard, polka dots or stripes.
