A good blazer is the answer to any dressing dilemma. Every fashion girl worth her Manolos will attest to it. Its ability to absolutely transform your look from average to exceptional (in that effortless Parisian-girl way) is unequaled among its sartorial sisters. Need to transition from beach to bar? There’s a long-line blazer for that. Want to look powerful and polished for a meeting? A check blazer will do the trick. Don’t know what to wear to Sant Ambroeus tonight? Throw that sleek black blazer over your jeans and tee—et voilà!

The truth is a blazer is like a faithful partner that will always be there when you need it. Sure, some other hot new bomber jacket may come along to keep you company for a night, but the trusty blazer? It’s a keeper. If you haven’t already found “the one” then you’re in luck because the latest crop of blazers for the new season are seriously chic and guaranteed to last a lifetime.
