The blazer can do no wrong. Every season seems to bring some form of the traditional men’s suiting essential, but this year, we’ve got so many bona fide women’s blazers. From shrunken to boyfriend to cropped, there’s a blazer for every size, shape, and style. If menswear’s your top pick, add accessories to soften the look, while most cropped women’s blazers are feminine enough on their own – with shortened cuffs, puffed sleeves, or other accents. Remember: the best blazer is the one that you’ll toss on without even thinking – and will elevate any outfit. That’s the definition of a wardrobe staple.
