Fashion Favorites: Black Blazers, 20 Ways!

I finish out my series on fashion favorites with the absolute favorite part of my wardrobe – my collection of black blazers.  They are such a staple and work with just about everything.

While I love all of my black blazers, my classic suit jacket and my cropped tuxedo blazer get the most rotation.

I mostly wear the cropped jacket with skirts and dresses as the proportion is a perfect topper for dressier looks.  The faux leather lapel adds a cool modern detail, and the cropped shape works very well on petite frames.

A classic black blazer is only slightly more versatile.  I’ve worn this blazer with everything from black trousers (as an actual suit) to animal prints to jeans.

  1. I just clicked on your blog for the first time (via Curvily). I love this post. I haven't owned or worn a blazer since the 90s. I especially like all 3 looks with a black skirt and the one with lots of color.

  2. Thanks for stopping by Meshel! The looks with the black skirts are my favorites too!

    I don't think a week goes by that I don't wear a black blazer – so easy and versatile!
