As an alternative to a cardigan or sweater, many women wear blazers to compliment their outfit and keep warm during the cold winter months. If you’re accustomed to wearing the boring black or navy blue blazer, think again – there are many more stylish and creative options when it comes to layering.
1) Velvet schoolboy blazer – J.Crew $148.00
Velvet is always fashionable in the winter months, and it will help you add flare to an otherwise boring outfit. Available in brown, purple, blue, and green, the J. Crew Velvet schoolboy blazer will help you stand out among your coworkers who will most likely be wearing the boring black suit jacket as a blazer. Layered over a sweater, you’ll stay toasty warm this fall and winter.
2) Harris tweed blazer – J. Crew $595.00
While the Harris tweed blazer is quite expensive compared to other options, it is a superior quality as it is made of hand-woven tweed. This blazer has a looser, menswear-like fit instead of a womanly silhouette. The Harris tweed blazer is perfect for the woman who is on the cutting-edge of preppy fashion and doesn’t mind standing out.
3) Tipped tuxedo jacket – Gap $98.00
The Tipped tuxedo jacket from the Gap is similar in style to the classic blazer, but also offers unique touches that bring it from boring to interesting. With lighter colored piping on the edges of the blazer, the Tipped tuxedo jacket is perfect for the office as well as going out. A slimming blazer made of wool, wear this to keep warm and stay fashionable!
4) Corduroy campus blazer – Banana Republic $98.00
The Corduroy campus blazer is less dressy than the other blazers offered in this guide, but it is made of a winter staple fabric – corduroy. If you’re not into ill-fitting cords, you can use this blazer to stay fashionable with corduroy on your top half!
5) Lightweight wool navy textured blazer – Banana Republic $198.00
If you’re looking for a more classic blazer, this may be the best option for you. But don’t worry – there are still unique touches to keep your style from going stale. This Banana Republic blazer is textured, and the lining around the hemline adds a great feminine flare to this blazer. Available in a lighter navy, you can pair this with any skirt, dress pant, or denim for a great outfit.
