As the weather starts to cool down from October to November, it’s the perfect time to start layering your outfits with light weight outerwear. Outerwear doesn’t technically have to be coats or jackets. There’s a way to still look chic and stylish while covered up for chillier mornings on the way to work or colder night outs with your friends. Blazers are the perfect alternative to coats in the early fall season and are versatile from day to night.
Blazers have come a long way since the corporate clothing staple piece. Whether you’re into oversized blazers, cropped blazers, blazer dresses, bold print blazers or more, there are endless possibilities on how to style them this autumn and we’re showing you how. Here are some chic blazer outfits we love this season and we hope to give you new inspiration. Make sure to shop our blazers here!
Styling Leather Blazers
Leather pieces automatically add an edge to your look but you can easily soften the leather blazer look by playing around with different color leather blazers besides the traditional black. For Autumn, you can go for a chic casual look and style the leather blazer with jeans and sneakers.
For a chic feminine look, pair a leather blazer with a long pleated skirt, tuck in a light weight knit, and pair with heel boots. Turn down the leather blazer look by pairing it over your favorite loungewear set or sweatsuit set with boots or sneakers. The possibilities of styling leather blazers are endless. Check out some of our favorite looks in the image above.
Styling Single Breasted Button Blazers
Single breasted button blazers are the most common blazer style but, for Fall you can opt for single breasted blazers that have a touch of detail like cutouts or with contrasting sleeves. These small details alone make a huge statement and take the average blazer to another level.
For a casual look, style double button blazers with your favorite pair of jeans and then throw on some thigh high boots. For a chic day-time look for a simple black breasted blazer, you could pair it with leather leggings and loafers with a small handbag and a beret. For a night look, open up the blazer and layer it as outerwear. You can throw a thin long sleeve bodysuit underneath and pair it with a skirt and stockings with chunky heel boots.
Styling Printed Blazers
Printed blazers will be THE statement piece of your whole autumn outfit and it can make a bland outfit look chic instantly. Most shy away from printed blazers because it can be hard to style but no worries because we’re going to give you tips to style printed blazers and show you some inspiration.
For an easier style approach, opt for a printed blazer skirt set, pair with a knit that’s tucked in and add some knee high boots or combat boots for an edgier look. Another way to rock a printed blazer is to simply pair it with ripped denim and a pair of sneakers for a casual yet chic look. If you have any sweater dresses in your wardrobe, you can easily glam it up with a printed blazer and knee high boots. Dress a printed blazer down with some faux leather leggings, chunky boots and a graphic tee.
Styling Blazer Dresses
The blazer dress needs to be in your Fall wardrobe simply because it’s a chic piece that takes no effort. We’re not talking about oversized blazers that can be worn as dresses but blazer dresses that have a tailored look and are cinched in at the waist. Blazer dresses are usually thicker in material so there’s no need to add extra layers if it’s a chiller morning or night.
Blazer dresses are also versatile from day to night by simply changing up the shoes and accessories. Try blazer dresses with printed trimming details or in bold colors. In the daytime, wear neutral or printed black stockings with chunky boots. Change it up by night by just pairing your blazer dress with knee high boots and a cute clutch.

Styling Oversized Blazers
The Oversized blazer is probably the most trendy piece of clothing to rock this Fall and it’s on everyone’s Pinterest feed. Oversized blazers can easily be dressed down with ripped jeans and a graphic tee or dressed up with a mini skirt and chunky knee high boots. If you don’t like the look of a tailored blazer dress, you could replace it with an oversized blazer as well. Here are some of our favorite oversized blazer styles this autumn.
Styling Cropped Blazers
It seems like every type of top is cropped these days and the blazer is no exception. Cropped blazers are actually a fun twist to the traditional look and there are many ways you can style cropped blazers for fall. For a day time look, style a cropped blazer with high waisted jeans, a thick belt, chunky heel boots and a small hand bag or clutch.
Going to work? You can add a professional touch by pairing cropped blazers with high waist dress pants so that no skin from your mid section has to show. If your mid section does show, unbutton the cropped blazer and add a thin button up underneath and tuck it into the pants. You also can’t ever go wrong with a cropped blazer skirt suit. Pair with a knit turtleneck sweater and some thigh high boots.
