If there is only one thing you are going to add to your closet this Fall, I would suggest be a slightly oversized plaid blazer (aka a grandpa blazer as I like to call them), preferably this one. It’s pretty much the best way ever to dress up jeans and a tee. Or layer over a cute slip dress, or an all black ensemble, an all white ensemble, or really just anything. It’s the perfect way to add a pop of color/interest to an otherwise plain or boring outfit! A few more grandpa blazers that I’m loving can be found here, here, here (40% off!), here. Also, a cute plus size option here! When choosing a blazer you definitely want a longer silhouette. It’s baggy and a little boxy, but the length adds a surprisingly slimming effect!

thank you charmaine!!
That’s a cool name for an oversized blazer! I’ve never thought of that. Lol you look great, by the way! I love how you styled the grandpa blazer and will definitely try and get myself one!
haha, thanks kate!!!
I love the pattern and color of that blazer, it’s so pretty and more interesting than you basic black or navy. I’m always cold, so a blazer is the perfect solution, and way to switch it up instead of my usual cardigan.
Have a great day! xAllie
thank you so much Allie! I definitely think a blazer is a great alternative to a cardigan!
SO excited about this little trend. I fell in love with one from Kate Spade, but it’s not in my price range at the moment (I want to splurge on it so so bad haha), but this one you linked from Madewell is pretty damn close to it and much more affordable. I hope I can pull it off as well as you do!
The Madewell one is SO good. I am thinking about getting that one as well… they’re different enough, right!?
Love everything about this look and also want to buy about 12 grandpa blazers. Thanks a lot! 🙂
Haha! Your closet will thank you!!!!
LOOOOVE love love this look! You look so happy and comfortable! I haven’t tried re/done denim – but these look so good that I might have to!
Aw thanks Roxanne!!! And Re/Done is the best. Def my favorite denim right now besides maybe Good American.
LOOOVE this look on you Grace (I am similarly obsessed with Ganni and now want this blazer so badly). I have a vintage Ralph Lauren blazer that is actually a man’s blazer (I like how it’s cut more straight rather than really curved like women’s blazers always were back in the day) and probably two sizes to big for me, but I love how it looks with blue jeans and heels or trainers or over a little white dress for autumn – I pull out that uniform every single September and don’t think I’ll ever be able to part with it!
aw thanks so much B! Isn’t Ganni just the best?! I feel like I just want every.single.thing. they make!!! xo
That blazer is amazing and I need it in my life!
It’s my FAV! Thanks, Jada!
LOVE this trend! Blazers are my new favorite – such an easy and fun way to switch up or dress up an outfit.
Totally agree; they are the best!
I may need to hit up the thrift store for one of these fun guys!
That’s such a smart idea!
