I love classic wardrobe staples that are considered basic but that aren’t so basic.  When looking for the perfect black blazer and white v-neck tee for this Fall season, I went straight to Nordstrom as I knew they would offer the best selection.  Sure enough, I found exactly what I was looking for!

In a prior post, I shared with you all that blazers are on trend this season and Nordstrom has an amazing selection of gorgeous blazers…from classic black, to velvet, to plaid, to military inspired…they have just about every style of blazer you could possibly think of!

I specifically was looking for a classic black blazer and when I came across this longline boyfriend blazer, it immediately stood out to me.  What I love most about this particular blazer is its length…I wanted something that hit below my hip.  I was also searching for a light weight blazer…one that I can wear over tees, dresses, and casual tops.  The fit is perfect as well…all in all, this particular blazer is exactly what I have been searching for!

Blazers are no longer just for the workplace.  Although structured and polished, they can absolutely be dressed down for a much more casual look.  Blazers are super versatile as well…wear a blazer to work and then pair it with a distressed denim and a tee for a casual weekend look.  Blazers are so chic and always add a polished touch to any outfit.

Nordstrom has been my go-to destination for Fall basics like this classic black blazer and this white v-neck tee!  I also wear these muted black distressed jeans, also from Nordstrom, all of the time…they have become one of my favorite pair of jeans.

I’d love to hear how you would style a blazer this season?!  Are you loving the blazer trend as much as I am?

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
