Capsule Confidential: The Black Blazer

Post by TM

See Keri Russell in three situations and just try to argue against the black blazer being a wardrobe staple:

I’m not sure if it’s the same blazer, it doesn’t even matter, the point is your blazer can work equally as well for pottering around town, going to lunch, work and occasions. Also, how great is Keri Russell?

That’s the thing about the black blazer, that it instantly upgrades an outfit. The bad thing is…it doesn’t go with everything. It doesn’t look good with a skater dress for instance, unless you drape it over your shoulders as if your hot, jock boyfriend lent it too you when you started to feel a chill.

I have very few nice jackets that are suitable for dressed up outfits in summer. Except for that black blazer. I threw it on over the dress I wore to a wedding a couple of weeks ago and I don’t have to tell you that it was a perfect match.

If you don’t have one already, you can get one anywhere. My advice is not to just pick one up in the office section in Next or Dunnes, however. It has to fit well and the material shouldn’t look cheap (even if it is.)
