The only jacket you need this season


The only jacket you need this season

It's boxy, oversized, checked—and grey

By Liz Guber  July 26th, 2017

It’s the jacket that will be everywhere once the temperatures cool: boxy, oversized and checked. The blazer first appeared on the fall runways—at Tibi it was paired with a matching mini skirt and almost-sheer black tights resulting in an ’80s power look. At Ellery and Calvin Klein the jacket felt more rooted in workwear—matchy-matchy and buttoned-up. And Balenciaga’s take was way, way off-kilter thanks to a silhouette that made the wearer look like they walked through a strong wind.

The street style set was quick to adapt the look. In Paris, the jacket was remixed with athleisure bottoms, layered over hoodies and paired with stomp-y black boots. All these varied interpretations hint at the blazer’s surprising versatility. It can elevate the look of a T-shirt and denim, or dress down a slinky black skirt or slip dress.

Though the thought of fall clothing (and summer ending) doesn’t leave us all that thrilled, we’ll consider this hero piece a consolation prize. Click through for our favourite options.
