Five Ways to Wear It: A Classic Black Blazer
Every woman needs a classic black blazer in her wardrobe. It’s the staple that can take you from a casual weekend brunch to a kids’ soccer match all the way to the boardroom. And here in Florida, while everyone else is digging out their winter coats, we can keep wearing our chic black jackets all year through. Here’s our pick of the bunch, and five ways to wear it, all available at Waterside Shops.
J. Crew’s Regent blazer is classic with an edge: made of fine wool with a light stretch, it fits to the body in a way that’s feminine but clean, with smooth lines and a popped collar, for an extra-modern feel.
At the office
Pair your perfect black blazer with a chic tiered shift dress in plaid, from Banana Republic. Add black pumps with a golden flower-shaped block heel detail, from Salvatore Ferragamo, and a splash of color with a large Mercer tote in Mulberry from Michael Kors.
Girls’ night out
Girls’ nights out are about fun and letting your hair down, so play with textures and bright colors under your classic blazer. Tory Burch’s Nicola dress is a vision in red velvet, with flared sleeves and scalloped edges: the perfect fall look. Pair with daring F-heel booties from Salvatore Ferragamo and an Anthropologie faux fur clutch.
Brunch is all about easy, colorful style, so pair your black blazer with a form-fitting lace midi-skirt in bright teal, from Chico’s, and a soft coral bell-sleeve top, from Gap. Complete the look with leopard-print haircalf kitten heels from Ann Taylor, for a fabulously boho weekend look.
A casual family day
For a fun, family day, dress your blazer down with distressed denim overalls from Ralph Lauren, a classic striped tee from Kate Spade New York, and classic Converse Chuck Taylors, from Nordstrom.
For date night with your beloved, dress up your blazer with a ravishing sequin minidress from A.L.C. at Saks Fifth Avenue, Lang strappy black sandals from Jimmy Choo, and Chanel’s new-season, uber-cool space-themed clutch.
