Fellow fashion girls: It's time to take a departure from being strictly corporate and enter ready-to-schmooze territory. You NEED (yes, all caps are necessary) a versatile, wear-everywhere blazer that commands attention at first wear. Lucky for you, they have already been deemed one of the season's breakout fashion trends — right behind fall suede
and slouch boots
. Ahead, we're spotlighting our fave non-granola styles (glen plaid, where you at?) that will fo' sure find a spot in your upcoming capsule wardrobe.
YSTR Velvet Underground
($298): What to wear for an epic GNO or London's underground bar scene? Peep this crushed velvet blazer and short set that will make you look (and feel) like a bona fide rockstar.
Reformation Lazer Blazer
($248): Nothing to wear? Hogwash. Toss this hero piece on with, well, everything for no shortage of world domination. We may be partial to the glen plaid print.
J.Crew Open-Front Sweater-Blazer
($138): And they said je sais ne quois
couldn't be taught. J.Crew swoops in FTW with an unassuming sweater-blazer hybrid that's cool like James Dean, yet elegant enough for late-afternoon Paris strolls.
Topshop Striped Corset Detail Blazer
($125): Details, people, details
. Between the corset-inspired lacing and anything-but-stuffy pinstripes, this slim-cut blazer was made for babes with an edgy streak.
Nasty Gal Checking in Plaid Blazer
($70): What's good? This double-breasted plaid blazer — that's what. Day or night, work or play, this piece de resistance screams "nasty woman" with an agenda.
Kowtow Departure Blazer, Pressed Flower
($274): This just in: Tictail's got your nine-to-five and five-to-nine bases covered with a groundbreaking fall floral blazer that's up to no good. And that's before white platform kicks are in the mix.
Wildfang The Chastain Long Blazer
($168): Just like Goldilocks, it may take a few try-ons, but once you've uncovered the quintessential blazer you'll be set for life. This black striped jacket with menswear undertones gets our vote — style it as androgynous or femme as you please.
Smythe Anytime Blazer
($595): Anytime, anywhere, this tailored cheetah print blazer will come through. Capiche?
Cupcakes & Cashmere Corvin Blazer

Urban Renewal Remade Checked Blazer
($69): And you thought combat boots and checked blazers didn't play nice. Give this contemporary school-girl topper a spin by layering it over your fave fall dress and adding a trusty top-handle satchel. Et voilà!
