A big, roomy blazer is just the piece to add a little bit of polish to your outfit. You can slip it on over a sweater, turtleneck, blouse, or t-shirt. It can even help you take your favorite dresses and skirts into fall and winter. Invest in a classic black piece or go academic in a trendy plaid, go oversized or keep it to a slimmer cut. Whatever your style, we rounded up the blazers that will make you feel like you can take on the world.
It doesn’t get more classic than a navy double-breasted blazer, which means that Lauren Ralph Lauren makes a great one. Keep it from feeling too nautical with fresh camel trousers. J.Crew’s Alfie blazer in a navy pinstripe Italian wool is classic, but still cool. It fits straight through the waist with one single, slouchy button. I love this version of the jacket too, that skews a little more relaxed with the honey plaid pattern keeps things feeling fresh and not too formal.
As we move into winter, Veronica Beard’s dickey blazer jacket is the perfect thing to keep you warm. I love the timeless combination of navy and gold buttons, and the swingy finish keeps things thoroughly modern. & Other Stories’s oversized wool blazer will take you back to the 80s, in a good way. Club Monaco’s Borrem blazer is black, sleek, and minimalist.
If you’re looking for something cut closer along the body, don’t be afraid to spend a little bit more. Tailoring is everything in these situations, and blazers are a great investment piece. Veronica Beard is a favorite of mine, like this plaid dickey jacket or this Anine Bing plaid blazer with a funky button situation. Nilli Lotan’s brown pinstripe blazer is a super-splurge, but the subtle shoulder pads and menswear-inspired fit will be wearable for years to come.
