The Plaid Blazer

The plaid blazer trend has been popular for a while now but only has recently found its way into my heart. I’ve been rediscovering my love for simple outfit variations that are based around jeans and a t-shirt and my two inspirations as of late has been Claire Marshall and Aimee Song.

Aimee, specifically, rocks the blazer look as her go-to and I’m obsessed with the clean, feminine vibe that it gives. So, when Aritzia launched several new blazer styles in different patterns this season, I got way WAY excited.

I looked at a couple of different styles, but I knew I had to own the Margaux blazer in Mini Check Tannin/Blk first. It also comes in an amazing dark grey colour with blue striping, which I thought I would love so much more. But something about this warm, brownish pattern gives off the perfect vintage vibes and I knew I had to purchase this as my first piece for Fall 2018.

I’m a little sad that the weather has already started to cool so drastically in Vancouver. We have rain in the forecast for the next week so I’m a little sad that my denim skirt and blazer combo won’t be a viable outfit for much longer. But thankfully, it seems like it’ll look just as great with just regular jeans and booties—or so it seems on Pinterest. (Pinned a ton of different plaid blazer outfits on my FW18 board so go and check it out for more inspo!)

Can’t wait to style this baby so much more this fall, so be prepared to see it a LOT. What’s your favourite fall trend for 2018?
