How to Style a Plaid Blazer for Work this Fall

How to style a plaid blazer for work this fall: outfit inspiration featuring white cable-knit sweater and red corduroy pants.

If there’s one thing you know for certain, it’s that the classics will never go out of style. And I would venture to say that this plaid blazer is, in fact, such a classic.

A plaid blazer is really easy to style for work, no matter the dress code! You can style it with a shirt, sweater, and corduroy pants like how I did here for a casual office environment. Or you can pair it with a coordinating skirt and heels if your office is a bit more dressy! It’s the ultimate fall workwear must-have.

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve gravitated more and more towards the classic styles. To the silhouettes and textures that will never truly go out of style. Hardly ever do I buy into the trends (these pants are as flared and trendy 70s as you’ll see me get!). I try to really curate a closet in which I can mix and match the vast majority of the items.

That way, I can keep my closet under control (I only have so much space after all!). Plus, I can style just about anything I own for work or play – including this plaid blazer and even my favorite plaid midi skirt!

I make an effort to shop conscientiously and I try to convince myself that I follow my gut when shopping instead of impulse shopping. Of course, I don’t really know how they’re different but, like Olivia Pope, I like to think that my gut is never wrong.

Yeah… I’m probably mistaken in that belief.
