If you didn’t know already, the blazer is a must-have wardrobe staple. Added to the right dress or skirt, a blazer can turn a casual look into business casual. Paired with great jeans or slacks, they lend themselves to a laid back and sensible look effortlessly. And for those shooting for a minimalist lifestyle, they are a perfect accessory. One of America’s premier designers, Michael Kors, will tell you the same.
Best of all, they come in all shapes and colors of the rainbow. Here I’ve compiled a list of my favorite blazers that are in stores now. But of course, you have the convenient option of purchasing them right from this page. Let’s get started shall we?
Steffen Schraut Tokyo Glam Blazer: This sequined stunner is a must for those times when you need to make a fun and bold statement. Add it to tailored jeans and a sensible pump to create a polished yet playful look.
Preen by Thornton Bregazzi Stretch cotton Kouna Blazer: This lovely blazer will be a wonderful addition to any wardrobe. I love that it’s already accessorized with a thin belt. The peplum gathering in the back will create curves for those of us without them. For ladies who already have curves, this blazer will highlight them. Pair it with pointy pumps and a pencil skirt.
One by Lamarque Zura Cascade Blazer: Casual, modern and definitely cool; this light weight jacket is perfect for when you want to exude just a little bit of edge. This sexy, stunner would go great with your favorite skinnies. You can also pair it with your favorite dress and heels to spice up a decidedly demure ensemble.
MICHAEL by Michael Kors Stretch-Crepe Blazer: Kors does Americana couture so well. This elegant blazer is lightly structured, so it’s not too distracting. It’s perfect for the office when you’re going for business casual. And who doesn’t love a jacket that can go with everything?
Gucci Stretch Wool and Silk-Blend Blazer: I’ll give you one guess why this darling Gucci made the list. Color! More of a classic design, this blazer is yelling ‘Hello Spring’! And it really is a great way to add color to your wardrobe. It’s perfect or the freedom lover who loathes carrying a bag or wearing accessories, yet still wants to add color to her ensemble.
Givenchy Peplum Blazer in Stretch-Crepe: Elegant and feminine, the pleated peplum on this blazer will create a lovely hourglass shape when worn. A piece like this will flatter most any body shape.
Givenchy Cape-Effect Blazer: Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock this past year, you know that capes are currently one of the hottest trends. Capes add a bit of glamour and drama to an otherwise muted look. Pair it with a sheath dress to wow the boardroom or with jeans and kitten heels for happy hour with the girls.
Faith Connexion Striped Blazer with Bardot Shoulders: I’m in love with this off the shoulder beauty. Paired with a pencil skirt and sensible pumps you’ll look positively ravishing, much like Ms. Bardot herself.
Dolce & Gabbana Satin-Trimmed Stretch Wool and Silk Blend Blazer: If you’re taking a shot at the androgynous look, then this blazer is the obvious choice. The tuxedo blazer has been seen on many style savvy celebs. It makes any outfit look polished.
Chloé Iconic Crepe Blazer: Well-constructed yet relaxed, this blazer is great when you want to dress down yet still look chic. I’d wear it with a fun graphic, halter tee and cute, patent pumps.
Balmain Wool-Twill Blazer: Balmain has been on everyone’s lips lately and it’s easy to see why. Feast your eyes on this stunner. The lines on this blazer are supremely executed. Polished is an understatement. I’d say immaculate. Forget making a good impression; you will own the boardroom in this number!
Balmain Double-Breasted Basket weave Cotton Blazer: Same as above. NO, literally. Okay, this classic beauty is so timeless that it will always be in style. Buy it now, and it will likely last you for decades. No hyperbole. It’s so beautiful I almost feel unworthy in it’s presence. Almost; I’m a goddess so I know I am worthy. 😉
Balmain Suede Blazer: Are you really surprised? Yes, Balmain made this list three times. It’s not my fault; blame it on the excellent craftsmanship, the impeccable attention to detail or my love for a double-breasted jacket. It says powerful, capable and perhaps even militant. “Get in ‘Formation'” ladies, at the store that is, and get this jacket. Better yet just buy it right here! Click “BUY” or the image to purchase.
Alexander McQueen Grain De Poudre: It’s simply beautiful. I love the angled pockets and the lightly padded shoulders. These features help create structure while still maintaining an air of femininity. It’s an understated sexy. I like it.
And there you have it; a list of stunning blazers that are just as sensible and just as much fun as you are. Now, go ahead and get to the best part. Buying one!
