Low-Key, the Best Fall Outfits Start with a Blazer

Turtlenecks and sweaters are what make fall fashion so irresistibly cozy, but quite frankly, they’re nothing without blazers. Actually, why deny it? The cutest fall ensembles start and end with a blazer—and no, I’m not sorry. Blazers are the type of jacket that works to elevate any look, but doesn’t make you look overdressed. They can dress up a graphic tee or turtleneck, while at the same time, work perfectly with a slip dress. Blazers make the world of fall fashion go ’round, and there are plenty of plus-size blazer outfit ideas to prove it.

Whether you’re a fan of the classic black blazer or prefer a chic plaid option, consider this particular style of jacket a go-to for the season. Any season, really. ALL seasons are perfect for blazers! They’re the start to any good outfit—no matter if it’s spring, summer, winter, or fall. You can pair an oversized blazer with a summery mini dress. (Iconic!) Or, throw on a long blazer with a sweater and leggings. (Simple, but ridiculously cute!) The possibilities are endless, but by adding a blazer to any outfit, you’re creating a winning ensemble.

Though blazers originally started as a workwear look, they’ve transitioned quite effortlessly into everyday pieces. Really, you can’t peruse street style without seeing an oversized blazer or two (at least). And, if you pay attention, you’ll find that they can be paired with anything. Hailey Bieber has even worn an oversized blazer over a sweatsuit—and it was a major look. It just goes to show: blazer outfits are the best outfits.

If you’ve already stocked up on blazers (Good for you!), but want a little bit of inspiration on how to actually style them for the season, you’re in luck. Below, you’ll find several different plus-size blazer outfit ideas that might just have you throwing out all your outerwear that isn’t blazers. Just don’t say I didn’t warn you.

1. The Blazer & Graphic Tee Combo

Graphic tees are abundant in most wardrobes, but they’re often only utilized for super casual weekend looks. By adding a blazer, though, you can take all your graphic tees to the next level. Just finish things off with your favorite jeans and some heeled booties, and you’re good to go.

2. The Essential Black Blazer ‘Fit

We love a classic black blazer! The versatility of this piece makes it perfect for wearing with patterned tops or pants, so feel free to get a little wild with it. We love pairing a bold sweater with a black blazer and trousers for a look that’s just as cute at the office as it is on the weekend.

3. The Not Your Grandma’s Knit Blazer

Knit blazers are a wonderful thing, OK? They’re a little less constricted than your average blazer and typically a bit thinner, too. This means that they’re perfect for pairing with fall knits. Spice things up with some faux leather leggings and animal print boots for an epic chilly day look.

4. The Blazer & Slip Dress Ensemble

Ah, our old friend the ’90s slip dress. If you’ve never paired one with an oversized boyfriend blazer, what are you even doing? Rather than throwing a black jacket over the dress, try adding a blazer and some cute, simple accessories. Your life will never be the same.

5. The Bold Animal Print Blazer

Not all blazers are solid prints or iconic plaids—some are seriously bold animal prints. Don’t shy away from these beauts! Let the blazer be the star of the outfit, and pair it with a black mockneck sweater, leather skirt, and fun sunglasses. It’s a fall look that’s practically made for Instagram.
