I went to a boarding school that had a pretty intense dress code, so blazers admittedly have a not-so-good connotation in my mind. Stuffy? Stodgy? Old ladyish? Yeah, all not things I want to look like when getting dressed in the morning.
I’ve basically boycotted blazers since my high school graduation–sans the occasional job interview–but then I came across Smythe. It wasn’t long until I realized that tons of celebs–and umm, princesses!–were giving their blazers and jackets their seal of approval, so I decided to lift the blazer ban and check them out. And I have to say, as a girl who pretty much unequivocally hates blazers, these are pretty amazing. They have classic navy blue styles that just feel a little more special with the addition of a gold button here or there, plus they also do slimmer versions with more fashion-forward touches like a metallic wash or sharp shoulders.
So whether you’re not really into blazers like me or swear by them for you day-to-day look, you have to check out Smythe. You’re gonna fall in love. Click through the slideshow to shop celeb-approved Smythe styles.
