Fall has officially arrived, and although the temperature here in Dallas doesn’t feel like fall, it’s still my favorite time of year.  During fall months, it can be tricky putting outfits together, because some days it feels like fall, and some days it doesn’t.  Layering can be the perfect way to balance this unpredictable weather, and there is one piece that is not only great for layering, but is also the perfect fall essential; it’s a blazer, and one of my picks for this fall is a checked blazer.

The great thing about blazers in today’s fashion, is that they no longer have to be purchased with a matching pant or skirt, and they no longer have to be worn as a suit.  The absolutely most chic way to wear a blazer is as a standalone piece, and to me a blazer that is standing out for fall is the checked blazer.  It’s a style that can be worn in many different ways, and this classic patterned blazer is a great alternative to a leather or denim jacket.  So, why is a checked blazer the perfect piece to invest in this fall, in today’s “Style Guide,” I’m sharing a few reasons why I think it is the perfect fall essential.

Style Guide:  Why A Checked Blazer Is The Perfect Fall Essential

It Is A Great Fall Transitional Piece – A checked blazer is a perfect piece to transition from summer to fall, because it is perfect for layering when the weather is unpredictable, and the pattern itself has a fresh, fall feel to it.

It Can Be Easily Paired With Other Fall Pieces – A checked blazer can stylishly be worn over a lightweight sweater or turtleneck, and worn with a simple black pant, leather pants, jeans or a skirt, making it a very versatile wardrobe staple.

It Can Take Any Look From Day To Night – This sophisticated piece is perfect for creating fashionable fall day to evening looks.  It’s perfect to style with a strapless midi dress, or a black wide leg jumpsuit for a classic day to evening look.

It Can Upgrade A Casual Look – Want to take your jeans and tee shirt look up a notch for fall, simply add a checked blazer, and it’s done.  The perfect fall casual look.

I hope today’s post has given you a few ideas on how you can expand your wardrobe this fall with a checked blazer.  For today’s look, I paired my oversized checked blazer, with my black bow neck blouse, and my medium wash mom jeans.  I accessorized with my checked slingback shoes and my quilted crossbody bag as accessories.  You can shop the items in this post, by clicking the links above in “Outfit Details,” by clicking the photos below in “Shop This Post”, or you can visit the Shop Style Page here.
