5 Ways To Wear This Season's Blazer Trend That Work For Nearly Every Life Situation

As summer slowly begins its descend into cooler temperatures, your wardrobe will need to change like the colors of the leaves.

Biker shorts paired with oversized vintage T-shirts and chunky sneakers were all the rage this past summer season. But what's coming this fall?

The answer: Blazers.

This is not the oversized frumpy dinner jacket middle-aged men wear when they need to dress up.

Think 1980s shoulder pad structure or relaxed comfy cardigan with a modern twist that can be styled to match any occasion.

Here are just a couple of different ways this versatile jacket will be your style secret weapon and best friend this fall.

The Office/Work

@zara

Blazers are not new to the workplace but they have never made too much of an impression. Most of them remained ill-fitted jackets worn for convenience not style.

But, this monochromatic pantsuit will be a must-have trend for this fall season.

This cropped double-breasted maroon blazer with matching pleated pants from ZARA is the perfect structured pantsuit to leave you looking powerful and confident throughout the entire workday.

Paired with some black pumps and layered gold jewelry this look can turn from daytime chic to nighttime sleek while out for an after-work drink.

Happy Hour

@handm

Blazers have their place in the office, a structured jacket is hardly revolutionary. But, what about outside of work?

These typically formal jackets can have a softer edge with the right adjustments which makes them perfect for events like happy hour.

This look from H&M is the perfect example.

Not only is this an affordable option but the pop of pink is the perfect standout shade while grabbing drinks with friends.

By losing the structure, the jacket becomes less harsh and more approachable to garb before meeting friends. Paring the blazer with matching tapered mid-thigh shorts give a fun edge that makes this monochrome look effortlessly stylish.

Rooftop Restaurant/Bar:

Vetta

We've talked bold office looks and casual fits for happy hour. But what about for a nighttime rooftop?

Rooftops have become all the rage across the country because who says no dinner, or drinks, with spanning views of a city skyline?

But, people dress for the occasion.

With this revolutionary belted blazer dress from Vetta, you can look as gorgeous as the view.

Not only does this sustainable blazer dress benefit the environment but it will also be a one-of-a-kind garment in your wardrobe.

The structured collar, buttons, and belt give off a seductively sophisticated "I slipped on my trench coat with nothing under it" vibe that perfectly fits the sleek nighttime vibe rooftops so often maintain.

Brunch

@topshop

Brunch is a weekend ritual for many and although people usually bring last night's hangover with them, sweatpants just don't fly.

This latte colored blazer from Topshop is the perfect piece to enjoy copious amounts of food and mimosas in to relieve a throbbing headache.

Like the photo, paired with a simple top and jean skirt or pants, this oversized jacket will keep you fashional yet comfortable for Sunday morning brunch.

First Date:

@eileenfisher

First dates can be terrifying, but ease those nerves by feeling confident in this beautiful white linen blazer from Eileen Fisher.

Worn with some jeans and a cute blouse this jacket becomes perfect for any day time activity like lunch or a picnic.

If this is an evening date, you can turn this jacket from daytime chic to nighttime sleek by throwing it over a sexy mini dress and making it the perfect cover up.

These were just a couple out of the dozens of ways blazers can be styled to become the hottest trend this fall.

Better hurry and find your new favorite garment before it's too late.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinology who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
