I love a good blazer in the Fall. It ranks up there with Fall jackets for me with the easy style. They add flair and fashion to almost any outfit. You can dress them up or down, wear them with jeans, dress pants, skirts, dresses, and so many more pieces! I’ve styled a few blazers for women below and chose some of the best options below!

6 Blazer Styles for Women
Plaid blazers are perhaps the originals. While tweed and linen were more suit jackets, plaid was reserved for a bit of whimsy in the blazer. I love a classic plaid blazer because they go with so many pieces! I write about style in it here, in my Fall capsule collection.
Wool blazers are another classic, typically worn for function and warmth in cooler climates. They are super cute and can be styled as a great outerwear piece, or under a winter coat.
Unstructured blazers are typically unlined and made to be styled more casually. They come in many fabrics, but I love a knit or cotton style. I have a pink one here and styled it different ways for summer. Vince has gorgeous unstructured blazers.
Double Breasted Blazer
Like most blazers, the double-breasted blazer was originally made for men and modeled after Navy uniforms. The double-breasted part refers to the two rows of buttons. This is one style you’ll want to wear buttoned up as the double-breasted blazer features two rows of buttons and makes your waist appear thinner.
Typically jackets have a right angle at the closure on the bottom. Instead of meeting in the middle, the bottom of a cutaway blazer doesn’t touch and splits outwards towards your waist. Cutaway blazers are modeled after tuxedos for a more contemporary style.
Originally a part of the classic Chanel suit, tweed blazers, otherwise known as a boucle is still around in an almost identical style. This cropped style is intentionally boxy intended to release women from the fitted cinched waists which were so common.
