Guys, we have some bad news about summer: it's officially over. And in our experience, the only way to beat the late-September blues is with a fierce new outerwear wardrobe. Enter the sharply tailored double-breasted blazers we've spotted on a coterie of street style stars (Helena Bordon
, Leandra Medine
, Kate Davidson Hudson
, et al). From the waist-cinching silhouette to the hint of shoulder pads, the look is so '80s redux-cool, we don't mind that it's only suitable for cooler temps.
And now for some good news: we're happy to report you can rock the style both day and night. As Sarah Jessica Parker
proves below, a navy, brass-buttoned blazer gives a chic edge to your usual jeans-and-sneaks ensemble.

Or, for a big night out, wear the buttoned-up blazer alone as a sexy top. We loved the look on Louisa Gummer, Meryl Streep
's bombshell youngest daughter, last month. (Source: Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images North America)
