There's a chill in the air and it's getting awfully frosty in the mornings. What better way to warm up and still look cool than adding a blazer to your look? These professional garments are still perfect for the office, but they're getting tons of play in the fashion world as a dressed-up version of a jean jacket. This fall, why not add a blazer to your ensembles?

Bright blazers are an easy and professional way to wear this fall's hottest colors. Pick up a blazer in an unusual hue, like berry or lemon yellow. Work them into your wardrobe by pairing with mostly neutrals. Your blazer will give your outfit the punchy style it needs. Pair gray pinstriped trousers with a white silk bow-tie blouse and top off with a fuchsia or magenta blazer. Finish your look with black leather women's pump shoes and a sweet silver necklace.

Want to look fashionable but still feel comfortable and confident? Try a knitted blazer! These garments have the styling of a blazer without all the structure. They're made from heavyweight knits and can be worn in place of a blazer. They come in all shapes and colors, so find one that's right for you. Pair your knitted blazer with a pair of skinny jeans and sparkly wedges. Toss on a bright silk scarf and sunglasses for an overly cool look that's sure to turn heads.

If you want to give your blazers a more casual edge, just roll up the sleeves! This casual style lets you wear your blazers outside of the boardroom. Wear your favorite pair of jeans with a colorful tank top, and then add your favorite blazer jacket. Roll up the cuffs so that they hit your elbow. Accessorize with bright jewelry and colorful eye shadow to add a funky twist to a standard office garment.

Pins and brooches can add pizzazz to your favorite office staple. Add some sparkle with a cluster of glitter vintage pins on the lapel of your blazer. A vintage blazer looks wonderful when you replace the buttons with fun, bright or glittery new buttons. Pair your blazer with dark denim and some sleek, sophisticated women's shoes to balance out the look.
