A really good blazer is like a grown-up version of a blankie: it makes you feel more happy, together, and secure just the moment you get your hands on it. I definitely feel more confident when I’ve got one on and, depending on the outfit, sexier too. I love watching the women of New York bopping around in their blazers this time of year, looking fantastic. Don’t these two exude style even just from the back?
I’m pretty much dying for a well-tailored army green blazer.
Just a straight-up classic two-button black blazer, versatile as the day is long.
This oversized grey herringbone number is fun and cheap, too.
I know this is a little Drum Major with that angular hem, but I also kind of love it.
I am dying, dying, dying for this brown wide-wale corduroy blazer—and just the idea of corduroy blazers in general. (Check out this one from J. Crew for a more affordable option.)
I like how tuxedo-ish this feels without being an actual tuxedo cut.
And finally: Pas de Calais makes the coolest blazers with delicate embroidered vests layered underneath.
