Blazers always complete a look, period. They tend to dress up anything and solidify an outfit with sophistication and elegance. Whether you are in work mode or phone mode, it’s time to transition from the summer cardigan to the fall blazer. Blazers give an outfit more credibility and dress it up to the caliber you intended.

If you are sick of wearing traditional blazers or work jackets because of your day job, then try keeping up with fall fashion and get a fun leather jacket from Zara. This jacket is uber cool and fun. It’s got the right ingredients to pair with all kinds of pants or skirts. I love this confidently styled jacket. Wear it carelessly with jeans and a white tee shirt, or wear it with your red slacks and a sequin top. Because of its sexy style, you can even pair this jacket with a flirty dress without creating an overwhelming appearance.

We've all heard that we shouldn’t wear white in the fall, but this next feature is an exception. Try pairing this white jacket with some fitted, knee length dresses. Give a '50s style dress a little whirl with this gorgeous white blazer. The pockets and hip length of this jacket with golden buttons would look lovely paired with skinny jeans and boots. This jacket reminds me of Victoria Beckham -- classy and polished. Give all your deep colors some light with this comfortable, pretty fall blazer.

Need more black options minus the leather? Check out this ruffle backed, black blazer. Don’t throw a simple dress out of your closet. Instead, save the dress and wear this jacket over it. This jacket will liven up any old, boring dress or top. I like how the ruffles on the back won’t collide with the accessories you wear on the front. Wear your bold earring or a bold statement necklace to give the fall a big welcome.

If you like oversized Olsen twin fashion, then this next feature is for you. I found an oversized jacket that will make you swoon. Its pink and its fierce.
