A fashion post! Finally! I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve written one, and to be honest, I’ve missed them! Between some blogging obligations to brands and the craziness of all the fall and Christmas decor posts and hops, it was difficult to fit them in. But today I wanted to talk about a wardrobe staple that I absolutely love: the plaid blazer! I’m a blazer lover in general (as anyone who knows you will tell you!) and the classic plaid or checked blazer is one that I turn to again and again.
Whether you combine it with jeans for a casual chic vibe, add it to a skirt for an elegant look, or rock it with other patterns for a funkier look, the plaid blazer is a must for any wardrobe. They are a natural choice during the fall and winter months since most of them are made of nubbier wool and are a warmer choice than a blazer made of linen or cotton. We’ve all seen them worn in the traditional, conservative way, of course, but they can also be dressed down or modernized and that’s when they really shine.

I love that they are perfect for so many events and look good in so many ways. They add polish, and panache, but can still be casual when you want them to. And there are few things you could buy that will give you the mileage a good plaid blazer will!
