As I scrolled through some of my saved outfit inspiration imagery on Instagram, I noticed many of my favorite easy yet chic looks featured one simple item. Yep, I’m talking about the blazer. Now, clearly this is one staple that’s remained a classic for years and years. However, with the updated takes on the item over the last few seasons—including slouchier fits and in cropped cuts—the blazer has basically become a certified fashion-person favorite to bring that polished elegance to even the simplest of ensembles.
While there are a range of silhouettes out there to suit just about every stye, I thought I’d round up some of my favorite current blazers, starting at just $35. To showcase said blazers even further, I pulled out some of the coolest blazer outfit ideas I’ve seen with additional shopping inspo on how to master each look.
