Fashion Math: Is An Oversized Blazer A Worthy Investment?

There are a few things in fashion that really are worth every penny. Some of those things are good boots, cashmere, coats, and suits. Speaking of suits, which are usually reserved for the formality of the corporate world, one of the biggest trends that comes to the foreground of fashion year after year is the blazer. You can buy one in wool, velvet, or even linen, and you’ll always return to it because it adds polish to everything, even jeans or a miniskirt. The fashion math has such a fabulous return that I simply must share:

This Vince 3/4 Sleeve Boyfriend Blazer ($440) is by no means cheap, but at $5.50 a wear, it’s an approachable option that will probably get more wear than the fashion math suggests thanks to its classic, wear-with-everything style. Made of a medium weight wool-viscose blend with a touch of Spandex, it’s not only comfortable, but the oversized cut is very fashion forward, while the strong shoulders and cropped sleeves give it that special touch.
