This Is the Blazer 2.0 Trend I Want Everyone to Wear

When it comes to modern wardrobe staples, a blazer is a go-to for many. While those slouchier cuts are undoubtedly popular amongst the fashion set (I adore the style), there’s another silhouette that hit the scene again in a noteworthy way last spring and is holding strong for fall as well. Yep, I’m talking about those trusty cropped blazers.

I’m particularly into this trendy staple because it not only adds that touch of sophistication to even the simplest of looks, but it also simultaneously brings an especially trend-forward element as well. Basically, I want everyone to test out the look—and am recommending the blazer silhouette to all of my friends when they’re asking for fall items to try.

To showcase the piece further, I rounded up some of my favorite looks featuring cropped blazers. Keep scrolling for a bit of visual inspiration. You’ll also find a range of shopping recommendations as well in case any of the ‘fits below peak your interest.
