10 Editor-Approved Blazers To Promote Your Work Wardrobe

If my nine-to-five outfits were a sentence, the blazer would be the exclamation point—the finishing element that makes a strong statement. As such, I'm always on the hunt for a great tailored jacket to carry me through fall. Not only does this third piece keep me warm as the temperatures drop, but it adds structure and polish to any look.

    Isabel Marant

    Lawrie Blazer ($795) in Anthracite

    Never underestimate the power of a gray blazer. It softens up an all-black outfit, plays nicely with other shades of gray, and perfectly balances bright colors.

    Alexander Wang

    Seamed Lapel Blazer ($825) in Black

    This boxy evening jacket will look great thrown over a slip dress worn with ankle boots.

    French Connection

    Vine Bloom Open Front Jacket ($158) in Blush/Rose/Black

    A tailored jacket doesn't have to be dark—or all that tailored. Case-in-point: this floral print style evocative of a kimono.

    Rick Owens

    Hollywood Wool-Crepe Jacket ($1,905) in Blush

    There's an element of '40s Hollywood glamour to this blush, double-breasted version by Rick Owens. I'll be wearing it with floor-grazing pajama pants and t-strap pumps to play up that vibe.

    Vanessa Bruno

    Pinstripe Wool Blazer ($750) in Dark Gray

    An oversized, pinstriped jacket is practically begging to be cinched at the waist with a vintage leather belt.

    Saint Laurent

    Single-Breasted Veste De Canotier ($2,890) in Black

    White piping gives this jacket a borrowed-from-the-boys-meets-English prep school vibe.

    Diane von Furstenberg

    Blazer ($520) in Dark Blue

    I'll pair this loose crepe version with navy trousers and stacked heel oxfords.

    Tory Burch

    Lisanne Jacket ($495) in Med Navy

    This cropped ladylike version has a bit of that folk look I love so much right now. It’s great for the weekend styled with a slouchy t-shirt and boyfriend jeans.

    The Row

    Nowton Jacket ($1,850) in Black

    This blazer is all business! The nipped-in waist and longer length are a touch Edwardian, so I'll balance the proportions with a sleek stiletto heel.

    Mango

    Velvet Applique Blazer ($60) in Black

    This coat is a bit heavier than a classic blazer and completely in line with the marine trend, making it the perfect transitional piece.
