There’s something undeniably hip about fall’s hottest outerwear trend, which pays homage to retro, grandfather-esque styles. Boxy, oversized blazers with broad shoulders are all the rage this season and add instant French-girl cool to an otherwise understated outfit. Whether you’re looking for wallet-friendly or splurge-worthy options, we’ve tracked down some incredible check blazers that will have you feeling like a street style queen.
For those days when you know you have to go from the office to après-work cocktails, you need a blazer that’s polished yet laid-back enough to allow you to dress it up or down for day and night. We recommend opting for a longer, fitted double-breasted blazer, that can be styled with a fitted skirt and a pair of ankle boots, a la Man Repeller’s Leandra Medine.
