With the season changing and the cold breeze starting to settle in, Fall is a great time to break out the layers! For this vintage look I am going for I decided to go with the blazer look. I know that this is NOT one of the hot fashion trends of the season, but it is a staple for any wardrobe. It is classic and simply irreplaceable. And for only $10 it just seemed to be an offer that couldn’t be passed up.
And like most things in life, blazers come in many different sizes, shapes, and styles. This blazer I thought the knit cotton fabric used for this blazer brought a casual, unique twist on the traditional blazer. For a more formal look or occasion it may be more suitable to go with the traditional structured blazer. But don’t be afraid to mix formal blazers in to a casual outfit by balancing it out with light wash jeans or a t-shirt.
[[want to take this look a step farther?]] Another way to do layers this season is to bundle up with military inspired coats. Yes, military remains a trend for Autumn / Fall 2010 but not as you’ve previously come to know it. Following on from Spring 2010 the women’s military trend turns away from the pomp and ceremony of military inspired clothing we’ve become accustomed to, and takes its cues from 20th Century military uniforms. From army green to shearling lined boots, it’s now a trend that’s far more subtle but no less appealing. (www.fashionising.com)
