i’m a firm believer in the power of a really great blazer. whenever anyone asks me “what are some items that i should definitely have in my closet?”, my first answer is almost always “a blazer”. why? blazers are some of the most versatile pieces that you can have in your closet. you can use them to dress up a more casual outfit (think jeans and a graphic tee), you can use them in place of a cardigan when you want to dress up an outfit a bit (think with a silk blouse or peplum top) and they transition easily between outerwear and an actual piece of your outfit.
they also provide great shape and structure, which is key if you’re wearing a dress or loosely fitting top. from behind, you’ll still have a waistline because most blazers nip in at that point.
i almost always feel like a real grown up when i wear a blazer, which is another thing that i love about them.
are you a blazer wearer?
