12 Blazer Trends To Switch Up Your Autumn Style

Designed by Kristine Romano.
There’s a laundry list of clothing items that could make a bid for most important autumn style piece: the knee-high boot, the leather trench coat, the turtleneck knit and the satin slip skirt are all worthy contenders. Arguably though, one item takes pride of place in our autumn/winter wardrobe, year after year. Tying all of these pieces together, it's the final, most important factor in building an outfit that will take you from overcast, late-summer days through to winter gales. It can be thrown over party dresses, jeans and a T shirt, and lounge sets alike, and can easily switch up your look from Dark Academia to rockstar’s girlfriend, depending on your choice. Pure fashion magic.
