Wardrobe Essential: The Plaid Blazer

The Style sauce // plaid blazer // blog header

They're everywhere. You can't turn a street corner without seeing one. No, I'm not talking about Bird scooters, I'm talking about the one thing that's a huge wardrobe staple right now: the plaid blazer. Honestly way before this trend came about I've always been a big plaid / checkered/ houndstooth kind of girl. Every Fall and Winter you can catch me sporting at least one of the three patterns in some way. I've had a red plaid trench coat that I wear ceremoniously almost every Christmas that I'll never get rid of.

This year though, it's all about the checkered blazer. Oversized, cropped, or belted, this is one wardrobe piece that can be worn so many ways. The one I'm wearing in this blog in particular is a vintage men's suit jacket from Burberry circa 1980 or so. I found it in the depths of my closet and it was about to go to Goodwill before I saved it and decided it was my new favorite piece of clothing. Here I've belted it with my Gucci leather belt , a peach wool beret, a classic pair of black heels (they're called Rendezvous from Tamara Mellon, and no pants. (JK! There's denim shorts under there)
