20+ WAYS TO WEAR A TARTAN BLAZER FOR COLD WEATHER
Tartan is a true classic if you ask me. If you are a fan of this pattern, you might enjoy this post. Today I'll show you 20 plus ways to style a green tartan blazer for cold weather, starting with how I wore this green tartan blazer a few days ago. It was such a lovely day! Don't you just love those sunny winter days? I always feel better when it is sunny, even when it's a bit cold. On this particular sunny day, I decided to wear my tartan blazer. I wore two layers under it and topped it with a faux fur stole, so I was feeling quite warm and cozy. I paired it with a dusty pink skirt and a very comfy (and old) pair of brown heeled boots.
Anyhow, when I went on this sunny stroll with a colleague of mine, she complimented me on this green tartan blazer. That made me reflect on how many times I have worn this tartan blazer. While I didn't keep a written record and cannot give you a precise number, I can tell you that this green blazer is one of the most worn items in my closet. It's made mostly from wool and it's delightfully warm. I bought it many years ago (possibly even back in 2011 or 2010). It was made by a fashion house Uzor that doesn't exist anymore and it is actually quite a rarity. I don't think they made too many of these coats. There were only a few of them (each in a different colour) in the entire shop when I was there last.
20 WAYS TO WEAR A TARTAN BLAZER
1. WITH A GREY DRESS, LEGGINGS AND SNEAKERS
I wanted to start this with an old look. Why, this photo was taken when I started my blog- and that was some time ago (November 2012). I really like how comfy this styling is. I was also sporting some red details (I layered a red top under my dress and opted for a coral necklace)
I'm actually wearing a dress under the skirt and this tartan blazer here. It a layering trick I use quite often. That way I also maximize my dresses and use them as tops. I do like how this printed dress added additional visual interest (like this tartan blazer isn't loud enough).
4. WITH JEANS, A TURTLENECK SWEATER DRESS AND A FOLKLORE BAG
I'm not sure have I ever posted this outfit or not. I stumbled upon these photographs recently. I think they were taken five or six years ago. It is hard to tell because I always look the same.5. WITH A PINK SKIRT, A BURGUNDY TURTLENECK AND CARAMEL BOOTS
I wore this outfit about two months ago or something like that. Pairing it with a dusty pink skirt and caramel heeled boots proved a good idea. Sometimes I like to keep things simple, but often I quite enjoy pairing this blazer with unexpected colours.
6. WITH LEGGINGS, A GREY SWEATER DRESS, A GREEN SCARF AND A RED BAG
I will definitely re-wear this outfit. A sweater dress paired with leggings is one of the comfiest combos ever. I do like how it looks paired with this tartan blazer, a green scarf and the red bag.
This is another outfit proposal with jeans, but it is a bit more dressed up. Speaking of dressing up, heels are a lovely way to dress up just about anything. For this look I also opted for a statement bracelet and some subtle earrings.
I'm definitely noticing a pattern here. I often style this green blazer with grey dresses. It might be because grey is such a great neutral colour and it looks great with everything.
Often when I wear this tartan blazer in winter, I focus on layering my items under it. However, this blazer is also a great item to wear under a coat. Wearing our blazers under coats in winter is a great style tip and one that keeps us warm too.
This is another feminine and elegant proposal. What I love about this outfit is the fact I made this midi dress myself. I can definitely see myself wearing this again.
Now, this is another comfortable casual styling but the faux fur stole adds some glam. I kept the colours in this one pretty simple, opting for a black skirt, leggings and sneakers but adding some colour with a leather caramel bag.
Styling this green tartan blazer with a denim skirt seemed like such a no brainer. To add some colour, I wore a striped turtleneck sweater, a pink bag and brown boots.
This is one of my all time favourite looks. I actually wore a silk blouse under this green dress and I liked the result a lot. I also liked how it looks with this green tartan blazer on top.
15. WITH NAVY PANTS, A RED TOP AND BOOTS
This is a combo I wore back in autumn. If I were to wear it now, I would probably add some winter accessories for warmth, for example a nice scarf.
16. WITH A METALLIC DRESS AND HIGH BOOTS
If you want to create an unique outfit with your tartan blazer, why not pair it with a metallic dress? That will sure get you noticed. I just love the combination of this blazer with this dress.
17. A GREY DRESS, HEELED BOOTS AND BURGUNDY BAG
This outfit isn't too exciting, but it works. Another 'neutral grey dress meets a coloured bag' combo. If you're stuck in a rot, pair your neutral dress with a tartan blazer and opt for a colourful bag. This combination is so easy but at the same time it can look so stylish and put together. Heeled boots are a fantastic option of you want to add some height but stay warm at the same time.
18. WITH A FLORAL DRESS, A VEST AND MOCCASIN SHOES
This tartan blazer is so versatile. I even wore it to try out a new hiking track. I wore the same outfit in the city in the morning, I just changed my shoes to moccasins once I got in the mountains.
19. WITH JEANS, BIKER BOOTS AND A STATEMENT SCARF
This was a travelling outfit that proved wonderfully comfortable. You can never go wrong with a statement scarf. I wore this outfit with different scarves and always liked the result.
20. WITH CAPRI JEANS, CARAMEL BOOTS AND A GREEN SCARF
Accessorizing with scarves can be so much fun and I do like to come up with new ways to style them with this green blazer. Do you see how I wrapped this green scarf around my head below?
That would be all for today. Do you have an item you wear often? Thank you for reading!
