3 Ways to Wear a Blazer from Fashion Week Street Style

October 14, 2017

Fashion week is barely in our rear view and the next is already approaching but we all know the most important aspect of every fashion week is street style. As the It Girls of the fashion world convene in a city-to- city tour of the Big Four, New York, London, Milan and Paris while I sit on my couch watching Netflix, searching Pinterest recipes and other basic bitch past times my Pinterest is then taken over by Fashion Week Street Style and I go into full critique mode hosting my own episode of What Not to Wear from said couch.

My favorite mix of street style is the marriage of high end and low end with contrast, to me street style is meant to be self-expression with a bit of pea-cocking avant-garde all while being effortless. I am a fan of any outfit that includes a jacket, I will pick out a jacket for an outfit before purse or jewelry and it could be 99 degrees out. It just brings everything together, so styling a blazer is essentially my street style.

The trick is finding just the right type of blazer for this look… the general blazer rules seem to be that it is a long blazer, has glen check pattern (that’s what this pattern is called) and is a dull color.

First: Denim & Button Down


I don’t know if it is some unwritten It Girl code to not iron your clothes but the wrinkled button-down shirt under the blazer adds to the effortlessness of this look, undo a few buttons more than you would for the office and you have a chill Saturday look. Use contrasting colors that complement one another, mustard yellow with gold and browns are this palette.

blogger-blazer-fashion-week-street-style These are men’s jeans, Bennie’s to be exact but my Housewife 101 course didnt cover European appliances and I shrunk all of his jeans when we first moved into our apartment, so naturally I have 4 new favorite pairs of jeans (I cut the ends myself, simple).

I love these shoes because they are the only comfortable pair of Christian Louboutin’s ever made…that’s my theory anyway. They are also a season’s favorite, sock booties but with a twist, a peep toe. street-style-fashion-week-how-to-style

Second: Knit Dress and Big Belt

I guess this is the basic girl version because I haven’t quite convinced myself that I need The Statement Belt of the Year!, I am pretty sure I deserve it though. So, if you have the Gucci belt rock it over the blazer and kill it.




You can still make this look work for you without a $300 belt.

I love this knit dress because it has pockets.


Pockets on a dress and a blazer, I am every 1980’s Career Women’s vision and I actually did feel quite cool and powerful in this look. Daring just enough but not doing too much!

Third: All Black Everything


You cannot, I repeat cannot go wrong with all black. This sexy one piece deep-v neck body suit is all you need with skinny jeans. The blazer has skinny red lines so I paired it with a skinny red belt. Did I mention this makes you look… skinny.

blazer-fashion-week-street-style It is crazy how one item can transform your look, this is a power look. I love that I was able to mix sexy and cool together with hella comfort! One of my favorite ways I didn’t list is with a graphic tee shirt (extra It Girl points if it says something conscious like “#BLM ” or “FEMINIST” across the front).

    I love all of the ways you styled your jacket. My favorite is the outfit with the denim and fabulous yellow shirt. This gorgeous booties do not hurt either. I love your definition of style and that is also how I am inspired to dress .

    I love a good blazer with a fab print, too! This one you have styled is so brilliantly versatile. I adore every way you have it styled! The belted look is so chic and super flattering. But I am also a huge fan of an all black look with a statement piece! So gorgeous!

    I love how blazers are so hot this fall, although they are a timeless piece, too! I love all of these looks and they are all super cute and stylish! I think the first outfit with the yellow top + blazer is my absolute fave!

    Love the ‘black’ look! And the Louboutin booties are gorgeous! And as you say, they look comfortable what is quite exceptional for Louboutin 😉

    It’s like we read from pages of the same book! I totally agree that one cannot go wrong with black. Stay slaying girl, loving how you spice up your blazers.
