Fall Trail Blazers!
The blazer, as you have heard me say many times over, is an essential. It is the anchor piece which, failing all else, will help define a look. For Fall we see a continuation of tuxedo and leather trim jackets that filtered in during the summer. Sleek tailoring in both masculine and feminine forms will be represented by most fashion retailers and designers in a return to polished sensibility.
If you are running on a stretched budget or just seeking to edit your wardrobe, this is a key piece to invest in. Paired with skinny jeans, cigarette pants or even shorts, an on-trend blazer will serve as your mainstay throughout the season.
This Fall look by Mango reflects the sophisticated clean lines that I love so much about autumn style. Check out the ‘Smoking Masculine Cut’ blazer for a sweet $120 here
