Two-Ways Tuesdays: The Checkered Blazer
Women's street style // mixing patterns // The Style Sauce blog

Hi! Welcome back.

So I’m introducing a new thing to this blog called “Two Ways Tuesdays”. This is basically going to be a blog series where I take ONE piece and style it TWO ways. The reason I wanted to do this is because I see a lot of bloggers always wearing different things and never wearing the same thing twice, and I believe it’s not only impractical but it also leads to another even scarier reality and that is mass consumerism and waste. I myself have been struggling with having such a large amount of clothing that I have to give it away, donate it, or sell it at such a fast pace that sometimes it starts to give me anxiety. Not only that but never wearing the same thing twice is expensive and irresponsible to the environment. Did you know that the fashion industry is the #2 cause of pollution on this planet next to only fossil fuels? Gross. Instead of being a part of the problem, I’d love to empower us all to actually reuse and rewear the things that we love starting with today. This is such a large conversation that I’ve been meaning to share more on here, but we’ll start with this series to at least showcase ways to wear things more than once. The checkered blazer is actually a piece you can wear 20 ways, but for the sake of longevity of blog posts I’ll be keeping it to two, lol!

One way I’m styling this is with a corduroy mini skirt, sock boots, a cropped black turtleneck sweater, and oversized sunglasses! You all have shown so much love about this look on Instagram, but it really is such a great look for any days you need to look pulled together this Fall. If you live in cooler weather, you could easily add tights under the mini skirt as well.

Now for look # 2. The second way I’ve styled this blazer (as you can see) is with ripped denim jeans, a printed cropped blouse, a printed head scarf, and combat boots. Both ways are definitely Fall approved and entirely different from one another. I love how I’ve mixed the prints in option two and how it incorporates denim and combat boots which are practical for Fall weather in most parts of the world! While I can think of 100’s of other ways to wear this checkered blazer, these two are a great start to incorporating a plaid blazer into your fall wardrobe.

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)

Check out the look and some of my favorite blazers at the moment to hop on this trend that's sure to stay as for 2018. Also, you can and should definitely own more than one - a grey fitted blazer and an oversized brown blazer have very different moments!
