All The Best Blazers for Fall I Tried On So You Don’t Have To

Single breasted or double breasted, sleeves down or sleeves pushed up, oversized or cropped, you can really make this piece your own. Keep reading for all of the best blazers for fall and which ones are my favorite…

I spent this past weekend in Sonoma at The Huddle, a business retreat for female entrepreneurs. To say it was a life-changing experience sounds so grandiose and cliche, but it truly was just that. It was really meaningful in ways I didn’t even expect and I left feeling really clear on the things I need to work on personally and in my business, as well as exactly where I want to be in five years and how to get there. I’m not sure if they’ve opened up applications for the next one yet, but I really recommend it if you’re a female entrepreneur. Speaking of business, allow me to present all the best blazers for fall, I tried on so you don’t have to. Considering I cut my teeth styling on The Ellen Show for four years, I feel like I know a thing or two about blazers. That said, there are a lot of ways to wear them right. Single breasted or double breasted, sleeves down or sleeves pushed up, oversized or cropped, you can really make this piece your own.

Textured Linen Blazer, Theory

I love the simplicity of this one. It’s a linen blazer which I’ve worn all summer long– think casually with a tee and jean shorts– but is also the perfect way to transition into fall when it’s still not super chilly out. (Also, it’s on sale!)

Double-Breasted Plaid Blazer, Lioness

I love this fabric! It’s so quintessentially fall and so classic! Also, it’s a great price point, especially for the quality.

Double-Breasted Blazer with Contrast Buttons, Rag & Bone

The contrast buttons and navy fabric are everything here! It’s super reminiscent of a sailor jacket and would be really cute with a striped tee. It’s definitely more of a spend, but if you’re a “fewer, better” kind of shopper this piece will stand the test of time.

Drapey Black Blazer, Anthropologie

If you feel like blazers are too structured or feel too masculine, this one is for you. The drapey-ness of it definitely gives it a more feminine feel. This would be really cute over a simple sheath dress, too.

Checked Cotton Blend Blazer, Veronica Beard

Personally I’m really gravitating towards warmer-toned plaids, but this one is really great if you’re more of a gray color way person as opposed to things in tan hues. You could also do this one with a white jean and white tee for a super bright and airy look that is still office-friendly.

Single-breasted Peak lapel Blazer, WAYF

One thing that sets this blazer apart from the others is the peak lapel. It’s a stronger, more 70s vibe and a super fun look with a wide leg or flare jean.

White Crepe Blazer, Cinq a Sept

Do you own a white blazer yet? If the answer is no, may I highly suggest you pick this one up? It’s so chic and can be worn year round! (This one in the ivory color way is a less expensive option and still great if this one isn’t in the budget.)

Double-breasted Cotton Blazer, COS

Okay, I think this one is sold out, but if you’re looking for a more casual option for every day consider a lightweight cotton like this one. How cute would this one be with a striped turtleneck?!

      They’re Maryam Nassar Zadeh from a couple years ago! I found them on Ebay and am obsessed!

  3. The white is my FAVORITE however my kids would ruin it in 2 seconds. I own one white shirt, but would love to own more one day!

    I love these! I would have never bought a white blazer, but just bought this one! It really helped to see how you styled it. Although, can I wear it for fall? Happy to save it for spring! It’s super cute!

      Oh I’m so glad it was helpful! You can absolutely wear it all year round. It would be really pretty with a cream ribbed turtleneck and white or cream wide leg pants or jeans. Also you could do a striped sailor shirt with jeans. The options are seriously endless! V-neck camel sweater? You just bought the most versatile new piece for your closet!

    These are all so good. I feel like the price point is higher than some other posts, but I also feel like you get what you pay for when it comes to suiting.
