The It Work Staple of the Season, According to Lauren Conrad

Lauren Conrad knows a thing or two about how to get ahead in your career. While we brought you her ultimate guide to succeed in your work life last week, she has one more piece of 9-to-5 fashion advice to add to the list: As Lauren mentioned on her site recently, the blazer is one of the key staples every woman needs in her closet.  

"If you work in an office or are going on an interview, it’s an essential for obvious reasons. But even if your job has a casual dress code, a chic, well-tailored blazer is a great outerwear option to pair with jeans and a tee. I have several black blazers in my closet that I keep on heavy rotation. But this season I’m loving a new twist on this old favorite: the tuxedo blazer," she said. We couldn't agree more. We love how versatile a tuxedo blazer can be—you can literally pair it with anything and look that much more polished.
