Five Ways to Wear It, from The Mall at Millenia: A Classic Black Blazer
October 15, 2017
Every woman needs a classic black blazer in her wardrobe. It’s the staple that can take you from a casual weekend brunch to a kids’ soccer match all the way to the boardroom. And here in Florida, while everyone else is digging out their winter coats, we can keep wearing our chic black jackets all year through. Here’s our pick of the bunch, and five ways to wear it, all available at The Mall at Millenia.
J. Crew’s Regent blazer is classic with an edge: made of fine wool with a light stretch, it fits to the body in a way that’s feminine but clean, with smooth lines and a popped collar, for an extra-modern feel.
At the office
Pair your perfect black blazer with a chic tiered shift dress in plaid, from Banana Republic. Add black suede pumps with an on-trend block heel, from Sam Edelman, and a splash of color with a large Mercer tote in Mulberry from Michael Kors.
Girls’ night out
Girls’ nights out are about fun and letting your hair down, so play with textures and bright colors under your classic blazer. Tory Burch’s Nicola dress is a vision in red velvet, with flared sleeves and scalloped edges: the perfect fall look. Pair with Dominicaa black suede booties from Aldo Shoes and an Anthropologie faux fur clutch.
Brunch is all about easy, colorful style, so pair your black blazer with a form-fitting lace midi-skirt in bright teal, from Chico’s, and a soft coral bell-sleeve top, from Gap. Complete the look with kid suede and mink kitten heels from Donald J. Pliner for a fabulously boho weekend look.
A casual family day
For a fun, family day, dress your blazer down with boyfriend overalls from Hollister Co., a classic striped tee from Kate Spade New York, and golden sneakers from Lacoste.
For date night with your beloved, dress up your blazer with Saint Laurent’s asymmetrical black-velvet minidress, Lang strappy black sandals from Jimmy Choo, and Chanel’s new-season, uber-cool space-themed clutch.
