This is “Round 2” because I blogged about the same subject last year. Why? Because I loooooovvvvve a good blazer. If you were to ask me if there was one piece of clothing that made me feel most like myself, it would be a wonderfully tailored blazer. With a crisp button down or a beautiful cami underneath. And in colder temps, a cozy turtleneck sweater. But truth be told, I could wear a blazer any way, even with nothing underneath…but let’s not get carried away.
I love the menswear look on a woman, but it has to be done right. A blazer is the answer. This is one wardrobe staple that I think is worth the investment because if you buy right, you will wear it for years. I always love a great fitting tailored suit on a man. And I love when they mix patterns in their shirt, tie, and suit. The patterns need to be subtle and all come together with some common thread, but if done well, it’s very sexy (IMHO). I suppose that is what inspired my outfit featured in this post. The blazer I’m wearing fits so much better than I thought it would. It runs true to size (TTS). It’s not as tailored as the blazers I typically wear, but it still has a great shape. I paired it with one of my new favorite button downs that has a subtle pattern, and I happen to love the mix. There are a few sizes remaining in this exact style, but I’ve listed a few that are very similar.
Aside from the plaid blazer, I’m sharing a few additional favorites. Personally, I feel H&M has been killing it lately with their blazers. I have this style in two colors, white and a blue/gray tweed, and the cut is amazing! It feels so feminine, and the gathered sleeves add the perfect unexpectedness to keep it from being anything but boring. As for brands with a great fit, I love L’Agence and Veronica Beard. L’Agence’s Kenzie (I own this style in a shade of blue, and no, it’s not just because of the name) is a wonderful knock-off of a favorite Balmain blazer. Actually, last year’s blog post feature photo was of Jennifer Aniston wearing a navy Balmain number. Veronica Beard blazers are cut very similarly…still not a bargain but not the crazy splurge of Balmain. And finally, I purchased this Theory blazer this season, so you’ll be seeing that in future posts. One tip for buying Theory: If you take any old Theory item into a store (one that someone could still wear), they’ll donate it and give you 25% off of your purchase. Score! And you’re welcome!
