Blazers for fall 1

Athiya Shetty's pin-striped ensemble is proof that you can never go wrong with a classic suit. Trade the pearls for oxidised silver earrings and a necklace to match, and give the power-dressing staple a chic touch.
Blazers for fall 4
Who said blazers could only work for... work? Take a leaf out of Katie Holmes' book, and pair a blazer with sweatpants and sneakers to look effortlessly put together. (You know, even if you haven't showered in 2 days and are stepping out for a grocery run.)

Night-time glam calls for a cute outfit and a cover-up to save you from feeling the chills. Ditch the boring, bulky overcoats for a chic, studded blazer and style it with a ruffled bralette à la Katrina Kaif. Bonus – pair the look with a choker necklace to highlight your décolletage, and keep the make-up luminous and simple.

You know you can never go wrong with the iconic grey-checkered blazer route. Take notes from Parineeti Chopra's outfit, and pair it with a graphic tee and denims to give you the whole power-dressing-but-make-it-fun vibe.
A classic black blazer is a solid addition to any wardrobe. Perfect for an intimate evening at home or a virtual celebration, pair the staple with floor-length dresses for maximum effect, and don't forget a bucket bag to match just like Sonakshi Sinha.
Regardless of whether your street style lewk is limited to dressing up to go from your bedroom to the kitchen, blazers are the best way to step up your fit. Go the monochrome route like Yami Gautam, or style it with a bright coloured bandeau top, silver hoops and a fanny pack.
