Fall 2017’s Biggest Trend: Plaid Blazer

The first official day of Fall 2017 is not until next week, however, I feel as if everyone is already in a autumnal state of mind. Thus, I wanted to address one of the biggest emerging fall fashion trends I have noticed  – the plaid blazer. This classic silhouette and glen plaid pattern is very reminiscent of timeless European styles and is definitely making a comeback this season. This past NYFW, I saw big names like Chriselle Lim, Aimee Song and Eva Chen rocking a similar style outerwear.

How to Style:

The week before heading to New York Fashion Week, I happened to stumble upon this glen plaid blazer at Goodwill and it miraculously fit me perfectly. It was a coveted piece and I knew it would be the perfect thing to wear to New York because it’s such a fall trend right now. Although a blazer is often associated with more formal occasions, I knew I wanted to dress it down, so I opted for this plain white crew neck tee from DSTLD (use the code ‘enclothedcognition’ for 10% off) and these grey, distressed boyfriend jeans from Hollister (similar). As far as accessories, my backpack and belt were thrifted years ago and the boots were from H&M (similar).

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to styling is adding some juxtaposition. I love this outfit because the structured glen pattern blazer pairs so unexpectedly well with the loose boyfriend denim and cropped tee. This combination is a great fall outfit to wear when you want to look effortlessly put-together.

Also, props to Dennis for taking these amazing photos. I met up with him before the Mochi NYFW presentation and it was such a pleasure working with him. If you are into street style, definitely check out his work. He has really captured some beautiful people and outfits!

  1. First of all, I love the attention to detail. Second, I love the way that you were able to get all of these items on the low low. That blazer is thrifted? Ma’am, give me some of those skills lol. You look beautiful and I really loved how you styled this fall trend. Thanks for sharing 🙂


  2. I love this outfit! It has the potential to look too baggy and shapeless, but the way you’ve paired all the pieces is flawless. That blazer is such a great find.

  3. Love the look and how you styled the blazer! I have always associated blazers with more formal attire and I enjoyed reading how you dressed it down! It such a great fall-look! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I’m loving this trend so much, I’m thinking of getting a pair of pants with a glen check print, it’s been my favourite for years, so classic yet very versatile, I would love to get a blazer/jacket too but unfortunately that’s not appropiate for the weather we have here right now, it’s so hot I could not survive wearing it. I really love this outfit and how you styled it with those jeans!!! AH-MAH-ZING! 🙂

    Have a lovely day and weekend!
