The blazer used to equal Wall Street and Dynasty-esque shoulder pads but today it’s the ultimate must have for any chic woman. Wearing a blazer doesn’t mean being stuffy or looking “corporate”. In fact, it’s probably the most versatile piece you can own as the swoon worthy photos below demonstrate.
There are certain women that master the art of wearing a blazer in the most perfect way and it’s no surprise that many of these women are fashion bloggers. Case in point Amanda Shadforth of Oracle Fox, Sara Donaldson of Harper and Harley and Kaity Ham of Modern Legacy (I Instastalk her on a daily basis as should you here).
The blaze is such multi-purpose piece. You can dress it up….
Dress it down…
Or, wear it with nothing at all (only Kaity could pull off pantless in such an elegant way)
Fashion icons such as Kate Moss, Carine Roitfeld and Emmanuelle Alt also rock the blazer:
Just in case I haven’t driven the point home yet: the blazer is a must have in your wardrobe! ;) You can test various styles (loose fitting boyfriend blazer vs tailored and structured) and see what suits you best. There really are infinite choices but start with a classic colour (black, navy or grey). Once you have that wardrobe staple, you can move on to funkier options.
My favourite spot to shop for blazers is Zara. The prices are accessible, there are usually a variety of styles to choose from and the cut fits me nicely (i.e. the arms are long enough which is usually a challenge in my case).
