Fall Fashion: The Boyfriend Blazer

Monday, August 24, 2009

I'm so ready for Fall. I long for cool mornings and layers of clothes. Visions of cashmere and coats are dancing in my head. And, slowly, I'm making my list of must-haves for fall.

Economic things being what they are, I'm trying to be efficient in my fall purchasing. I'm sure you can understand. Only truly stand-out items make the list, and each item must be transformative. No lukewarm purchases this fall. So, with all of these qualifiers, what makes the short list? It's still a little up in the air, but I can say that a chic boyfriend blazer is right up at the top of the list (so far).

The boyfriend blazer is a definite must have for Fall 2009. It is a newer silhouette that will clearly vibe on-trend come fall. Plus, the boyfriend blazer is one of those items that can contribute to any number of outfits since it can be worn with everything from jeans to dresses. The best part? This trend is available in a range of price points, so you are sure to find a boyfriend blazer that fits both your style and your budget.

Here are a few of my favorite finds so far. I'm leaning towards the Elizabeth & James version, but you never can tell...
