They were the street-style standout at this year’s NYFW, they’ve been in every store window on your walk to work and they’re all over your Pinterest feed. Plaid blazers have solidified themselves as our favorite fall staple. Here, ten ways to rock one.
'80s Plaid Blazers Are Everywhere This Fall (Here's How to Wear One)
With A Solid Turtleneck, Straight-leg Jeans And Flats
Add the perfect pop of rich color with a turtleneck peeking out over your blazer neckline. Then finish the classic look off with some pointy-toe flats to keep things feminine.
Get the look: Mango blazer ($120); 3.1 Phillip Lim turtleneck ($395); Draper James jeans ($168); Michael Kors flats ($395)
With A White Button-down, Leather Skirt And Ankle Boots
The contrast of stately plaid and shiny leather feels fresh and badass at the same time.

With A Striped Shirt, Plaid Skirt And Loafers
We love a little pattern mixing (OK, a lot of it). And as long as you’ve got a thread of consistent color throughout (black in this case), you won’t feel like a crazy cat lady (that is, unless you want to…then it’s A-OK by us).
