…and by friends, I mean my friends in my head! Lol. So, this is the second post in our Target Fall Fashion Series, and today we’re talking about the Merona Tailored Blazer. I should have taken a picture of my blazer collection. It’s OFF THE CHAIN! I have so many in various colors, prints, and fabrics. Blazers are the perfect finishing touch for any outfit. They can dress a casual outfit up, or bring a super dressy outfit down. They’re perfect for the office, and chic on the weekend. It is definitely a fall must have for every woman’s closet!
Since I don’t have any of the Merona blazers from their latest fall collection, I thought it would be fun to recreate some celebrity looks. I chose three looks by Olivia Palermo, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Gwen Stefani that I think really show the versatility of a blazer.
Look #1: Olivia Palermo’s Classic Blazer Style
Olivia always stays true to her classic style while keeping it young and fresh with color and accessories! I love the way she styled her orange blazer with a classic pair of slim plaid pants and tonal suede pumps. And, guess what, Merona has everything you need to create the look. (I already have an orange blazer…just gotta get those plaid pants!)

Look #2: Gwyneth Paltrow’s Casual Blazer Style
Gwyneth is showing us how easy it is to use a blazer to spruce up a pair of jeans for a casual look that’s still pulled together. I love this monochromatic look – so cute! I actually don’t have a gray blazer, and I really love the black contrast trim on this one. It’s officially on my Tar-jay wish list!

Look #3: Gwen Stefani’s Edgy Blazer Style
So, you guys know Gwen’s look is right up my alley. It’s edgy and unexpected! I think Gwen is showing us how a tailored piece like a blazer can really tie an outfit together. This is also a great example of using a blazer to incorporate prints into your wardrobe! Merona’s plaid blazer comes in two different colors…and I want both!
