I too often find myself standing in front of the closet, gazing upon years (and not to mentions dollars) worth of clothing. As I push past each hanger, I am confronted with the never-ending, always-obnoxious chant. “I have nothing to wear.” At this exact moment, I can think of at least ten different articles of clothing I NEED in order to look fabulous, none of which I own. After years of repeating this exact scene, I have finally discovered the antidote. It is time I start investing in pieces that never go out of style. Without further adieu, may I present to you the ever-stylish, ever-fierce, ever-classy tuxedo blazer!
The tuxedo blazer offers a way to step up your look. Both confident and sexy, this style of blazer creates a beautiful feminine silhouette from a rather boyish article of clothing. Perfect for pairing with a nice fitting pair of jeans, a long necklace, and heels, the tuxedo blazer can provide easy transition from stylish day time attire to sultry evening attire. The Madewell Midnight Blazer is an ideal example of the tuxedo blazer done right. Check out the beautiful notched collar and classic double breasted feature. With this wardrobe staple in your closet, there is no way you could ever look out of style again. Be careful though, you will be tempted to wear this blazer all the time!
The White House/ Black Market Girlfriend Blazer could easily become an everyday piece in your wardrobe. I love the front pockets and princess seams in the back. Both these subtle features help create a feminine feel to an edgier piece. Once again this blazer could be coupled with jeans and heels for an outfit appropriate for any occasion, or for those more daring fashionistas, try pairing this blazer with a baby-doll dress and long chain of pearls.
The Brooks Brother One Button Twill Tuxedo Jacket is the most traditional of the tuxedo style. I love how this seemingly masculine blazer accentuates the female bust and waist in a tasteful, classy way. The silk collar and pocket detailing create a beautiful focal point and give this blazer achieve a very formal feel. A perfect addition to the working woman’s wardrobe, this blazer will have office ready in no time.
Here’s the best news off all, each of these blazers is under $200. Now, the wear value you will get out of any of these blazers, well that’s truly priceless!
