Holiday Blazers: Fashion Over 50 Style

Women's blazers are showing off for the season and are a top trend for women over 50. Pair them with your favorite skirt or jeans and have a little fun with your fashion.

In case you don’t know, women’s blazers are strong in a big way this season. While the blazer has always been the go-to item for work, they now show up at casual get-togethers and dressy dinner parties. You’ll even see celebrities donning blazers over their evening gowns on the red carpet. Blazers have never really gone out of style, but they seem to take a more or less prominent role each year. Fortunately for those who care less about what the 30-somethings are wearing and more about the fashion over 50 styles, the blazer has made a huge comeback this winter and fall.

What we love about the new blazers for this year is the diversity of patterns and styles. You can choose a basic double-breasted (very BIG this year) in white or black that you could wear with almost every item in your closet, or choose a pattern (hello plaid!) or color that’s hot this year – like fire engine red – to add new life to your wardrobe.

Women’s Blazers  – Wear Them Over Everything This Fall



If you aren’t sure how to pair a blazer, let us reassure you that there aren’t many wrong answers. For example, a blazer pairs perfectly with a floral printed dress, or you can wear one over a pretty camisole and midi pleated skirt to soften a highly tailored cut. A long blazer is also great to throw over a pair of jeans or treggings, elongating your look and making you appear a bit taller.

You should also spend more money on a blazer than other items in your closet. Even if they aren’t the top trend one year, you’ll find that they come back into style often, never lose their versatility, and will always be your go-to piece when you want to present a polished look. Other than your winter coat, classic items like these blazers should be where you spend more of your fashion dollars.

Whether you choose a fitted, classic, oversized, or boyfriend style, you’ll find infinite ways to wear them casually or for business all season long.
