The Basic Black Blazer

As I progress through my journey of living with a capsule collection wardrobe, I’d like to pause every now and again and take a step back to focus on the “WHY” of each piece I’ve selected. With only 33 items to choose from, it really forces you to hone in on those important essentials that can transform any outfit, on any body type and across all lifestyles. In this case, the essential is obviously a black blazer.

Whether you’re working in a professional environment, or spending your days in school or at home, every woman should own a black blazer. I say that with some serious intensity. It’s a seasonless piece that can add instant polish and sophistication to anything you wear- a dress, a blouse or in this case, my most lived in and distressed pair of boyfriend jeans.

    Oh girl, that blazer is anything BUT basic! I love it! What a nice take on a garment that can be a boring and business-like. I too, wanted a basic black blazer for my capsule wardrobe; but when I tried them on, it just didn’t feel like “me.” Then, this weekend I stumbled on an interesting zippered version that was a perfect mix of casual (zippered, biker-chic styling) but classy (a woven fabric instead of the trendy imitation leather.) To top it off, the price was a steal! Here’s a pic: http://www.dressbarn.com/assets/homepages/fa14/hp1008/hpA-closet.jpg Of course, that’s a model, not me! 😀
