From dramatic bondage styled shoes to angular black dresses, the New York Fashion Weekers at this morning’s Brian Reyes show were sporting some very futuristic fall ensembles. But the one item I [now] can’t wait to imitate? The peaked black blazer; it’s sort of Judy Jetson (gone over to the dark side) and looked both sexy and sophisticated over many a mini-dress at Bryant Park.
I know, I know, shoulder pads have been considered pretty much the epitome of uncool for the past few decades, but I’m loving this semi-revival of Melanie Griffith’s Working Girl look. The structured blazer is a sharp finishing touch for any modern lady in a power suit. Try a clean cut D&G version ($695) or for something a little less militant, this Elizabeth and James blazer ($495) that features slight ruching at the shoulders.
