From pantsuits to fedoras, women have always borrowed pieces and styles from menswear fashion. One of the most popular items the ladies have borrowed from the guys is the blazer, a casual suit jacket that features long sleeves, long lapels, and a few buttons for detail.
Because of their versatility, blazers are a staple fashion piece and a wardrobe essential. They’re often a go-to piece for work attire, as they fit both casual and formal business attire dress codes. But, you don’t have to be going to work to rock a stylish blazer–they’re also perfect for play!
So whether you decide to dress it up or wear it down, there’s always a blazer for each and every occasion. Here are a few of the BEST blazers for women:
Kohl's Women's Apt. 9 Long Blazer ($44.99, originally $60)
A classic open front blazer with 3/4 sleeves for a casual look. Colors come in "Morning Dove" (pictured) and black. This blazer is already on sale, but if you use code "BIGSAVINGS" at checkout, you can get it for an additional 15% off!
"I ordered this in the "Morning Dove" color, and it is very pretty. The fabric is very nice and I don't mind that it requires dry cleaning. This jacket has a little extra length, which I like, and goes well with dress slacks or jeans. The 3/4 sleeves with the shirring detail makes the jacket a little more stylish. I will get a lot of use out of this one!" -PALArk
