I’ve only recently learned to appreciate the importance and of a reliable blazer. A blazer is a necessity that every fashionable woman should own, and if you’re lucky, own in multiple colors. Blazers come in all shapes and fabrics, allowing you to express your personality through your outerwear.
New York City is full of life. Everyone is constantly on the go, but many New Yorkers manage to look stylish and unphased by the surrounding chaos, like this Fashionista. She sported a camel blazer over her blue Flinstone-inspired dress and city-friendly glitter ballerina flats. The blazer is not fitted, which balances out the fitted dress. Her gold accessories contrast well with the gold hardware on her lust worthy Armani handbag.
Although blazers are definitely a good investment, they don’t have to be pricey. Urban Outfitters has a collection of blazers under $100. This sequin blazer is perfect for adding sparkle to your wardrobe this holiday season. A top rated item on the Urban Outfitter’s website, the boyfriend blazer is an easy piece to dress up or dress down, for those who value the versatility of a garment. For the winter months, a tweed blazer is suitable for layering under a parka jacket. You remain well dressed once you have braved the cold and remove your coat.
A winter white blazer is the epitome of chic, highlighted in H&M’s 2012 holiday campaign. Blanco, a trendy Spanish brand with over 200 stores, featured a tailored wool blazer paired with an unlikely polka-dot blouse in their Christmas campaign.
