I Own Too Many Blazers to Count—Now I Have My Sights on This One

In a few months' time, we'll be talking about closet clean-outs, what to toss, what to keep, and all things organization. I guess the energy of ushering in a new year seems to do that to people. But regardless of whether it's January or the season for spring cleaning, one category of clothing I virtually leave untouched is my blazers. You could probably call it a blazer addiction. Yes, that means my assortment of them is currently bursting at the seams, but at the frequent rate that I wear them, it seems like a fair trade. Out of my current collection, camel blazers, in particular, have been receiving a lot of airtime. It's the shade I reach for first (sorry, black blazers) and feels especially fitting for the moderate L.A. winters. 

While the camel coat has long been a perennial staple among stylish people everywhere, its blazer relative hasn't always been as ubiquitous. That was until the most recent fall/winter runways showcased a score of them from brands such as Gucci, Fendi, The Row, and more. With its fashion street cred up, the camel blazer has become more of a familiar face at the who's who of clothing stores and within my very own closet. Since I consider myself fluent in the language of cool blazers, I took the time to assemble the absolute chicest and best for your shopping pleasure. Keep scrolling to see them all along with my runway and IRL inspo to keep your sartorial juices flowing.

French girls seem to have jumped aboard the camel-blazer wave early—Parisian brand Sandro usually releases one every season.
