If you’ve followed this site for a while, you’ve probably noticed how often I rock my favorite black blazer. I regard it as crucial, and couldn’t consider a wardrobe complete without one. I’ve said it before, but I truly believe it’s the single most important thing to really save up and invest in. Great for workday responsibilities or evening festivities, you can’t go wrong with any of the options pictured here.|ABOVE| top left: Acne satin tuxedo jacket ($650) / top right: Karl wool blazer ($345) / middle repeat: Karl shearling-trimmed jacket ($635) / bottom left: Dorothy Perkins tuxedo jacket ($69) / bottom middle: Topshop longline blazer ($136) / bottom right: Topshop white-lined boyfriend blazer ($130) |ORIGINAL POST|

    a basic black blazer doesn’t have to be super expensive. i’m happy with the quality of my $40 H&M blazer and zara makes excellent ones around the $80 mark. appropriate for work and fashionable for dinner and drinks afterwards!

    a quality black blazer is a staple i’ve been on the hunt for forever and i’ve always come up short! i’ve tried a couple of cheaper options and haven’t been satisfied with the quality, i’ve tried vintage and haven’t been satisfied with the cut, so it might be time to finally invest in a great one for fall!

    I have a boyfriend blazer from a few years ago when oversize was popular but I need a better, fitted blazer.
