Chadwicks of Boston-Affordable and Stylish Wearing a Suede Blazer




Hello Friends,

I know you are interested in hearing about my trip to Taos, NM and SantaFe. It was amazing!  Let me put it on hold for a day, as I want to bring you my outfit featuring my gray suede blazer from Chadwicks of Boston. Fall is my favorite month for styling and wearing clothes. Can I get an ” Amen!” I love the rich textures, colors, styles and trends that make up my fall wardrobe and I am always looking for classic pieces to add to it for some extra style. When I was asked to choose something from their Fall line, I went directly toward the leather and suede items as they always appear chic to me and are very in style. 


By now, I imagine you have heard about Chadwicks of Boston or are familiar.  I am going to share with you a look today featuring this lovely grey suede blazer I received.   The weather is changing in Charlotte and I wanted to style this with a look incorporating layers, color and my faux leather pants,  another favorite for Fall.   Chadwicks of Boston has some great pieces in all sizes: Petite,Tall and Plus.  I was comfortable ordering my normal size 4 in this blazer, and it fit to a tee.

The suede is made well, substantial and will be that go to piece for Fall. Dress up a pair of jeans, wear it over a cozy sweater dress, style it with a skirt and patterned tights.  I shop on-line 95% of the time, and the company made this an easy and pleasant experience. Women over 50 can experience quality and affordability and a suede blazer is a great way to amp up your look for fall.  Not only is it a great silhouette, but because of the texture and color will add interest to your look. I love that blazer in grey is a great neutral that can be worn with so many fall colors, in this case an emerald-green.


I have bought from them before and appreciate the fine quality of their garments, along with very reasonable price points.. This blazer is a lovely quality piece to have in your Fall wardrobe, as I will style it in many ways; worn with jeans and a jewel toned top, it takes the outfit to another level. Pair this blazer with a pair of black faux leather leggings, another staple for Fall, and you can share a chic yet modern look. What I love is that one can find pieces for the work environment, as well as looking chic about town. This lined suede blazer comes in Mayfair Blue, Grey and Nutmeg, you can purchase it HERE.



I love various shades of grey. The Pantone Institute calls it “Sharkskin”. I look at is as a luscious neutral that will pair wonderfully with color or other neutrals, such as navy, taupe or lighter shades of grey. Chadwicks of Boston has some great Fall Staples to refresh  your wardrobe for Fall: leathers, suede, structured wool, tweed.  Have a look at Chadwicks of Boston and see what you want to add to your Fall wardrobe.

    Love the mix of leather and suede, also grey and green look so good together. Your brooch is a very nice detail that highlights the colour of the blouse.

    I love that you’ve mixed suede and leather together – I did this recently and it’s such winning combination. The grey is a great colour choice as you say being a brilliant neutral, and yes, you’ll get such a lot of wear out of that won’t you? The zap of green is fab with your hair and skin tone. The whole look is a winner again Jess, brilliant!
