What’s the one thing in your closet so versatile and formidable it can transform any outfit from drab to chic and polished?
Why the structured blazer of course.
No matter the colour or the fabric it’s made of, a well-constructed blazer has the magical power to give any outfit an instant shape, elegance and authority all at the same time. No longer just relegated to a pantsuit, the blazer can go with anything – a dress, skirt and blouse combo, and yes, even an evening gown.
Take for example my current fave ripped boyfriend jeans from Smart Set, which I wouldn’t normally wear to the office even during Casual Friday but with the addition of this beautifully shaped red blazer from Banana Republic (and these gorgeous nude summer booties from ALDO), it’s all of a sudden appropriate for the office’s TGIF days. In fact, I keep several blazers of different style, cut and length in the office just in case I get called in into a meeting last minute.
What about you, what are the rock star pieces in your closet?
