This is an original quote from my Parisienne friend Melina who – TRUST me – knows what she’s talking about! We spotted great examples of the blazer-mania all over Paris but also elsewhere in the fashion landscape. HOW to wear it? Take inpiration from these stylish ladies:

Swedish newcomer model FRIDA GUSTAVSSON during London fashion week in an old-school tweed blazer spiced up with vintage denim shorts and overknee-socks. Very brit!

Rumi Fashiontoast

Rumi from fashiontoast pairs her double-breasted vintage blazer with a short slipdress and all-black-accessories like the Alexander Wang Diego bag.

Ashley Olsen at Hogan

Ashley Olsen wears her grey wool blazer with a thick oversized scarf, cut-off black skinnies and classic pumps.

Same blazer, different outfit! I love how she can pull of a look that consists of only classic pieces like a cardigan, geek glasses and jeans and still look incredibly cool and sexy. Ashley, you’re my style goddess!

Ashley Olsen: Get the look


1. Wear a classic cardigan in bottle green with nothing underneath. I found this one at Topshop for £ 38.

2. Wear it with BASIC black skinny jeans like the Acne Kex Smooth and CUT THEM OFF right under your ankle! It’s the new thing. Slashed denim is sooo last season;-)!

3. Geek glasses in brown add a touch of “librarian”. These are the Ray Ban Wayfarers in Dark Havana.

4. Double-breasted blazer jacket from Miss Selfridge for £ 25. If you want to invest into a more special piece check the Vanessa Bruno Athé collection at La Garconne.

5. Finally a pair of classic pumps like the Louboutin Décoletté 100 jazz pumps will round this look.

So ditch your wool coats this fall: it’s all about the blazer! Got it;-)?

    MK is beautiful, love your blog, let he know if you want to link exchange

    come check out the first ever fashion blog from a guys POV, let He know what you think

  2. Agh, I’d love to be able to wear blazers, but at this time of year it’s much too cold in Helsinki. But faux fur does the trick too :)

    Now I have to go stalk on pictures of MK & Ashley, you got me tempted! They are the most stylish people to walk this planet, I think!

  3. I totally agree, the blazer is so the new jacket! I am going to wear a blazer with a cocktail dress to a black tie event this weekend!

  4. Hah, I just bought my very first balzer in a creamy rosé at H&M Trend and I LOVE it.

  5. Rumi looks great!
    I love blazer, this is such an inspiring post =)

  6. I totally agree on that quote but it so depends where you live, most of the times in Switzerland it’s waaay to cold to only wear a blazer (even with many layers underneath).. :(
