A Guide to Wearing a Neutral Blazer this Fall

Whether you have been going back to the office after working from home for so many months or if you just need additional polished layering devices for your everyday outfits, I feel like one could always use a blazer. This classic piece is seriously timeless and something you can wear at any time of the year, at multiple different functions, making it a fashionable secret weapon. Since the blazer is such a common commodity too, there are so many brands to shop from. Whether you have a more modest blazer budget or are looking to invest in a designer option that will stand the test of time, this blog post has you covered. I scoured the web and found some of the best neutral blazer options that you can add to your wardrobe. Honestly, I firmly believe one should have all 4 colorways (black, white, grey and beige) within their arsenal so your bases are always covered. Here is your comprehensive guide on both affordable and splurge worthy neutral blazers for this fall.

A Guide to Wearing a Neutral Blazer this Fall

Classic Black

The first neutral that is most certainly a must-have item to have with you at all times is black. You cannot beat the sophisticated aesthetic that a black blazer provides. Depending on your preferred style, you can either opt for a more fitted style or something a bit more loose and relaxed. Personally, I tend to prefer the latter since it makes it easier to layer and we all know this is the key layering time period. As we tend to naturally dress in more dark, moody colors in the fall and winter, the infallible black blazer is definitely worth investing in right now.

Bright White

As a contrast to a black blazer, a white option always makes a refreshing statement. I know this color can be intimidating for some because stark white can be quite a lot of look, especially during the fall time. However, I urge you to not be afraid of this gorgeous, neutral blazer! It is one of my favorite outerwear pieces to throw on with a pair of jeans to create an instantly chic look. If bright white is a little too much for you, feel free to play into the ivorys and ecrus for a slightly softer, more demure take on the look.

Cool Grey

The third colorway of the classic neutral blazer I wanted to mention is grey. This shade is not as harsh and dark as a black or as bright and bold as a white. In fact, it lies somewhere in the middle, making it a key item to always have within your wardrobe. A grey blazer is just as versatile as the other neutral blazer options, having the ability to wear it to both work and to play. Particularly, I love the way a grey blazer looks paired with some dark trousers or denim. These act as a great foundation so the blazer can really pop and be the statement piece within your outfit. Do not be afraid to branch out to some pattern too! Grey plaid blazers make for incredibly chic fall outerwear.

Business Beige

Last but certainly not least! The beige blazer is the final puzzle piece to round out our neutral blazer style guide. Whether it be camel, tan, or light peach, this piece is sure to become a handy, well-worn piece within your closet. Like all the aforementioned colors, beige can easily be dressed down and styled with your favorite denim. Or for an elevated, off-duty inspired look. I always love to wear my beige blazer with a head-to-toe tonal outfit. For instance, rock your nude blazer with a cream sweater and some chocolate trousers for a creamy, neutral outfit. As long as the pieces are relatively within the same color wheel, you are good to go!
