6 Totally Different Ways to Wear A Plaid Blazer for Women Over 50

If you are looking for outfit ideas for fall you have come to the right place. I am currently loving plaid blazers and am going to focus on my obsession. Here is how to wear a plaid blazer for women over 50 with options to style it 6 very different ways.

Contrary to what you may think, a plaid blazer is very versatile. You can wear it for the office, casually on the weekends or dress it up for a party. Simply pick up some of the colors in the plaid for the other pieces you wear with it (your pants, top and accessories), but don’t worry about an exact match. I suggest wearing a plaid that includes black, because you can always wear it with black (which is probably already in your wardrobe).

The Plaid Blazer with Black Pants

An obvious outfit is to wear the jacket with black pants and a button front shirt. I like these wide leg trousers with loafers (which are totally on-trend this fall) and you will feel very comfortable for work or any another occasion when you want to look pulled together. Grab a burgundy or bag and you’re good to go.

Wear the same plaid blazer with your favorite denim jeans (mine are Mott & Bow Slim Mid Rise Ridge Jeans – they are so comfortable), a slouchy sweater and neutral suede booties. Wear this look with a small crossbody bag for a casual fall weekend look.
