If you can only afford one thing this month, make sure that one thing is … no not the ice cream. But a chic plaid blazer. It’s the new staple you will be wearing now and later. Where to get it? I have you covered on this. Also, showing you how to wear your new plaid blazer in the chicest way for spring summer 2018.
WHAT TO SHOP NOW
Have nothing to wear, and running out of money? I know the feeling. We all have been there at some point in our life. Too bad for you if this happened right now at the beginning of the new season. Just when you want to update your wardrobe. Well, you shouldn’t worry that much. You actually need only 1 new piece in your wardrobe now.
And what’s even better you will wear it for the next season too. Yes, this piece is one of those, buy now, wear now and wear later. In short, the plaid blazer is the new staple and here is where to get it and how to style it now.
YOU ONLY NEED THE PLAID BLAZER
Actually, you already knew that this one thing you should get this season is the plaid blazer. Afterall, so many of you had asked me to publish this blog post. As many of you found it hard to get a nice plaid blazer and afterward had no idea how to style it for every day in the week. I can totally see why. I mean who wouldn’t want to show up at the office in her new plaid blazer every single day. Yet making it look like it’s a different blazer every day.
Well, I’m pretty sure this won’t be your problem anymore after you finish reading this post. Even though the EDIT with 5 different ways to wear the plaid blazer is coming in my next post, I’m pretty sure this outfit I’m wearing today will be a great inspiration for you. Besides I’m wearing plaid on plaid this time.
WHAT AM I WEARING WITH MY PAID BLAZER NOW
I know, it’s Thursday and I’m not wearing exactly an office appropriate outfit. But hey, I’m out of the office for today, and you can swap my mini plaid skirt with a pencil plaid anyway (Ps. check how to wear a pencil skirt in your 20s here). As long as it’s plaid, it will be perfect this time.
In short, I love wearing my plaid blazer with anything plaid at the moment. Playing with plaid print is so fun not mentioning so fashionable. Luckily, plaids are here to stay for a long time. Read you can shop this plaid blazer now, wear it now and wear it later. Yes, you can wear the same plaid blazer the next season too and you will still look fashionable. Surely, not in the same way as now, but I will make sure to show you how to wear it for autumn on time.
Ps. If you are dying to see how we will be wearing our plaid blazers in autumn 18, check my #pfw report over here.
Back to this plaid suit that I’m wearing this time. Because if you have a closer look, you will see I’m actually wearing a suit. Seems like I’m wearing a business outfit after all. Ha just kidding, we know this skirt is to short, read too sexy, for the office. But just like a plaid blazer, it’s this season’s must-have. Remember my spring summer shopping guide (check here)? Mini skirts are one too.
Still, as said, if you can only afford one thing, make sure this thing is a plaid blazer. Keep reading to find out where to get this plaid blazer I’m wearing this time.
SHOP AND WEAR MY STYLE
Be sure to save, print or just pin this fashion cheat sheet – the EDIT below and keep it somewhere close to your checked blazer. To make sure you never run out of fashion inspiration. Also, don’t forget to share this post with your friend or two. Better two then, you do want your entire squad to look fashionable, right?
If you can afford more than just the checked blazer, then be sure to get this skirt I’m wearing too. As mentioned before, a plaid mini is a must have this season too. And the chain shoulder bag. Another must-have for spring 2018. The black pumps, well these are a basic you probably already have.
Nevertheless, you can get these black pumps, in the same way as all the other (similar) things I’m wearing simply by clicking on the items in the EDIT. See that pink box that pops up as you scroll down? That’s the spot you must click on. Or if this sounds slightly too complicated, I must confess I’m not the best in giving that kind of instructions, find the links in the gallery or text below. I get a commission for purchases or clicks made through links in this post.
CURRENTLY WEARING THE CHIC CHECKED SUIT
I’m pretty sure you noticed, as mini as it is, the checked mini skirt that I’m wearing under my oversized plaid blazer. This plaid asymmetric tweed skirt comes from Storets. You must remember it from this blog post here, where I wore it with a basic white turtleneck. Another too sexy outfit for the office, but perfect outfit to wear off-duty. Especially for a day date.
Anyway, back to this off-duty chic outfit I’m wearing here. I haven’t mentioned yet where I got this gorgeous checked blazer. It’s from Erika Cavallini.
WHERE TO GET THE MOST FASHIONABLE PLAID BLAZERS OF THE SEASON
Finally, where to get all the most fashionable checked blazer for women this season.
Obviously, my oversized boyfriend plaid blazer is not the only fashionable plaid blazer out there. In fact, uf feeling slightly ashamed confessing this, my checked blazer is not even the most fashionable blazer at the moment.
The number one fashionable checked blazer is actually the short tailored checked blazer. The one you can see in the gallery below and will fit you perfectly. Still, if you are shopping for seasons to wear, then be sure to get an oversized blazer. Or at least slightly longer version of the checked blazer. Not only it’s easier to style, but you can also wear it with everything and what it’s even more important, anywhere.
What so ever, I’m pretty sure you will find your plaid jacket with no problem. I made sure to add checked blazers that come with the different price range. Afterall you are shopping on the budget this time, aren’t you? Although, a staple blazer you will be wearing for seasons is worthy of a splurge. Remember my tips on how to shop basics you wear for work every day? Well, it’s time you listen to that advice. And happy shopping!
