Bored of Your Basic Blazer? 5 Updates We're Wearing Instead

We can’t live without our black blazers. They save us time and time again, making an appearance at job interviews, at important presentations, and at least once a week when we’re convinced we have nothing to wear. But hear us out: There’s a whole world of blazers out there that go beyond the basic, and they’re the perfect way to power-dress while keeping your 9-to-5 feeling stylish.

What’s on our blazer-update checklist? Firstly, it should speak to our favorite trends while still feeling like a classic investment piece. Secondly, it should be anything other than basic and black. And finally, it has to be effortless to wear—there’s nothing worse than feeling uncomfortable at work. Our blazers are the hero of our outfits: We don’t want to have to take them off while we’re sitting at our computers, so they have to be made from fabric that breathes and has our back when we're under pressure. That’s why when we’re shopping for blazers this season (and every season), we’re looking at the fiber content to make sure it’s made with cotton.

So yes, while some days it’s fine to feel like you just need that safe option, we’re here to show you a few updates you can make instead.
