The recent fashion scene has seen a lot of trends that left a mark on our collective fashion conscience. We have had shell jewelry, skinny sunglasses, leopard print, animal print, beaded bags .. and the list goes on and on. However, something ought to be said for the pieces that transcend from one seasonal trend to a closet staple – Enter – The Plaid Blazer.
Two years ago, there was a massive blazer craze and the Plaid print stood out. We saw it on all the runways and our Instagram favorites gave us all the additional inspiration we needed to add it to our closet. While we would usually expect this type of standout piece to slowly fade into the backs of our closet, the opposite happened. They have remained one of the most popular outerwear staples and i’m here for it.
The fashion girls of the world have borrowed the plaid menswear from Sherlock Holmes and made it the answer to any wardrobe dilemma. You have to agree that it polishes you off nicely and adds a boujee touch to your ensemble. Whether you’re looking to update your closet or you’re in need of a plaid item or two, this Blazer from @mareh_atelier is such a steal. I can wear almost anything with it.
I can wear a graphic tee, a silk cami, a sweater (for colder climates) or even a little white dress and look just as chic. I decided to wear mine with a mesh turtleneck blouse (from @mareh_atelier) and a pair of ripped jeans (also from @mareh_atelier). Can we just agree that the combination of a pair of ripped jeans and the plaid blazer take this from hella amazing to friggin cool?
Mareh Atelier just launched her pre-festive season collection and ladies – i tell you, it’s the stuff dreams are made of. Her entire store is a mash up of Blair Waldorf and modern day Serena Van Der Woodsen. If nothing else makes you want to go to the store, may all the iconic fashion moments of gossip girl come to mind and get you up your behind.
