Can we all agree we are living in the best season of the year? On an average day the temperature stays between 60 and 70 degrees, both a sweater and shorts can be worn in the same day (but not together of course), and there is less sweating waiting for the subway (notice I say LESS sweating).
I LOVE fall and know you all do as well! But one thing is for sure-I’ve heard from many of you that fall is simultaneously your favorite yet most difficult season to style. That seems so unfair seeing as half of feeling your best is looking your best! So to keep fall at the top of everyone’s list, I’ve put together the autumn essentials styling series. Featuring my fall favorites, this series focuses on pieces that are interchangeable between business casual and weekend wear.
And the best news is, YOU’RE ALREADY HERE so let’s get started…
You may recall from my jumpsuit confessional that I am ALWAYS hot (I know, gross right?), so I love the cooler temperatures and breeze of fall. But the season’s super cool mornings followed by scorching afternoons are more common than not. That is why my NUMBER 1 essential perfectly interchangeable between work and play this season is the boyfriend blazer. This total GIRL-POWER style blazer is a layering essential transitional from morning to evening, from dressier work events to casual happy hours, and styled perfectly with a top and bottom or even a dress! Also notice this look is styled with jeans seeing as many of you are able to wear denim for work (LUCKY), but I have included options for those of us not so fortunate, too!
As if this blazer is not perfect enough on its own, layering with this basic dressy Express tee completes the style. Both super trendy and lightweight, this top provides breathability beneath the blazer. It is also still professional when worn alone and can dress up a casual weekend look as well!
