4 Cool Blazers, 4 Perfect Outfits

Candied apples, crunchy leaves, leather jackets—there's really a lot to love about fall. The only thing we're not so into? Figuring out how to dress for this super-swift transition. To get us primed for the times when we're HITSCITS (hot in the sun, cold in the shade), we're leaning on our good friend, the blazer. Like none other, this piece can take you from deskside to drinkside to Lincoln Center-side—and back again.
To illustrate our point, we've called upon four style stars to show off their most perfect blazer outfits, and, of course, all the additional swag you need in order to steal their looks. The takeaway? Shade or sun, this jacket just blazes on.

A blazer can give us that professional buttoned-up look, but, sometimes, we're looking for a bit more fun with our 'fits. These printed pants turn this ensemble into a full-on business on top, party on the bottom affair, and we're loving it.
