Whenever the weather turns cold, I find myself wanting to wear mostly wool, plaid, denim, blazers, and knits. Traditional fall and winter patterns, materials, and styles. Think back to school or English country apparel. That’s what I love most this time of year and what serves as my style inspiration for cool weather outfits.
One item my closet didn’t have as fall began was a nice wool blazer to wear as a light jacket or layered under a larger one.
I had been looking all over for just the right one. Then one Saturday I decided to check out the Everlane store in Soho and found this beautiful grey oversized one. Do you ever try something on you’ve been searching for and it is exactly what you were hoping to find? That was this blazer.
As far as size, I’m wearing a size 2. It is oversized so I could have probably sized down but this does allow me to wear chunky fisherman sweaters and knits underneath.
The grey is incredibly easy to style and looks great with any color or material. I’ver been wearing it mostly with jeans like I am in this outfit but also with trousers, floral dresses, and wide leg pants.
