Today I wanted to talk about the oh so important statement blazer! When editing my clients wardrobe, this is one item I always look for! You might think a blazer is super professional, boring, or only comes in black/navy/grey. I have a surprise for you!! They’re not just for those of us who have an extremely classic style or dress professional for work. Safe to say I do have a classic style with a little edge, but you will never ever find me in a suit. Blazers now come in just about any and every variety you can think of offering something for everyone!
With a variety of lengths, colors, fabrics, buttons, etc. you might end up loving more than you think! Personally my hot pink (pictured above) and black boyfriend blazers (pictured below) are the two that get the most wear. I know once I add a cape blazer to my closet it will be a go-to for dressier events. It is so important to fill your closet with pieces that make life on the go easier!
We’ve all looked in the closet and thought “ugh I’ve worn that top a million times” whether it is a basic tee or a gorgeous floral blouse. Layering pieces and accessories are your best friend when you run across this issue! Make a blazer work for you when dressing up jeans, or take a dress from date night to church. While most of us don’t have tons of extra time in the morning to play dress up, pour a glass of wine one night, grab one of your old favorites, and see how many different ways you can accessorize it. You might be surprised what you can do with your wardrobe when you’re not in rush!
While I don’t think you have to over spend on jackets/coats, I do think you should consider how often you are going to wear it and go for quality over quantity! I’ve included all sorts of colors, price points, and styles below to help everyone find their perfect statement piece!
