The Classic Blazer

         The blazer has been around forever because it works.  When you need to pull a look together quickly for school, errands, or a casual office day, the effortless blazer is a must-have.  In navy or black, it is the finishing touch.  The right blazer nips you in at all the right places.  It also can do wonders for hiding a bigger mid-section.  They are universally flattering.  Check out these casual looks from the Middleton sisters with blazers and jeans.  

           If you are on your way out for the night, a long blazer like this one on Sandra Bullock looks fantastic over a cocktail dress.  It is a more pulled together look than a cardigan and you will not have to adjust it like a pashmina.  Voila!  A well cut women's black blazer is a staple item in any wardrobe.  You can dress it up or down and it always looks chic.

          Personally, I have been stealing my 11 year old son's navy blazer for a couple of years.  It looks fantastic with the sleeves rolled up, a crisp white blouse underneath, and skinny jeans with boots.  If you do not have a son from whom to steal... here are some great budget options:

                                This is a great budget option at $29.80 from Forever21.

                          This "boyfriend" style long black blazer is only $24.80 at Forever21.
