When it comes to transitioning to fall, it’s all about the layers.

I know, I know … it’s not fall yet. But, the seasons are a-changin’ (in the fashion world, that is) and layering is a strategy that can be used any time of year. So let’s talk layering with this classic slouchy blazer.

I previously styled this Topshop blazer on top of a number of looks for dinner dates in LA — so naturally [because of the versatile wear] I had to hop on the staple and snag it in white too. I styled it here yesterday on instagram for a sophisticated happy hour look. In terms of layering for business casual wear – I love crisp V-neck blouses that look chic, natural, and lightweight underneath blazers. Find my favorites here, here (obsessed with Everlane – best affordable silk), and here. When it comes to summer wear, a simple and minimalistic shift dress (flattering for all kinds of figures) with a simple blazer like this one is always a good idea. I also foresee this blazer looking fabulous paired with a classic pair of tailored shorts and a button-down for the rest of our warm summer nights.

In terms of fall: throw it on with a classic pair of boyfriend denim (very, J. Crew-esque). Or layer it in a cozy kind of a way with a scarf in the fall + booties. Plus, pssst …  you heard it here: you can definitely wear white after Labor Day — the fashion “faux pas” police is nonsense (it’s a thing of the past). XOXO

    What size are you wearing and what size do you typically wear in other brands? I find TOPSHOP to run small, is that true for this dress also? Thank you!

    1. I’m wearing a size 2! But sometimes I wear a 4, so if it runs small for you and we are similar sizes — I say try a 4! XOXO
