From the catwalks to the streets: Blazer and Skirt is a winning duo

Among the many looks and styles that arose from the fall catwalks, there is one I think is already a classic: the chic combo Blazer and Skirt.

The long shelf life outfit appeared on the catwalks in 2019 with Hedi Slimane’s first collection for Céline. But blazer and skirt, the classy French working women look, continues strong this fall. It’s a style combination that you can repeat without thinking twice.

Prada and Fendi fall 2020 revisited blazer and skirt duo adding a silhouette from the 40s. It means, the blazer has big shoulders and to enhance even more the proportion, they added a belt. Pair it with a Mary Jane shoes and you can’t be more trendy.

How to style it

Although we’ve seen some blazer with pencil skirts on the catwalk, fashionistas on the streets are opting for a more comfortable uniform. Like them, this autumn, you will pair your blazer with pleated A-line midi skirts. Pos-Coronavirus style is less power-suit and more relaxed self-confidence.

If you still don’t have a pleated or an A-line skirt in your wardrobe, now it’s time. They are everywhere again as one of the most versatile pieces to create contemporary looks. These feminine skirts are super flattering for different body shapes. Throw a big blazer with combat boots for work, and add a belt with a pump for a night out. Blazer and skirt can be your uniform this fall.

Conscious shopping

And when looking for new staples go conscious shopping; choose interchangeable blazers and skirts, so that, with only a few pieces, you can put together several different looks.

Here are some beautiful ones, that you can mix & match. Don’t be afraid to explore and enjoy some daring colour combinations to brighten up this fall.
