Blazers are a tried and true favorite of mine – an old standby, really. If I ever want to dress up an outfit, I throw a blazer on over a pair of jeans and a tee and add heels, or toss it on over a dress for a more formal look. They’re an effortless way to elevate an outfit into the realm of business casual, and they get the spotlight today.

I’ve been trying to present these without comment, but I had to say something about this one. I’ve said before that I’ve been pleasantly surprised by Lauren Conrad’s offerings for her Kohl’s line. Some of her pieces – particularly the sweaters and blazers – are quite wearable and adorable, and this one is no exception. I love the chiffon trim on the sleeves and the hem. It’s cute, it’s fresh, it’s inventive, and it’s just so feminine, without being overtly so. Blazers are, of course, menswear-inspired, and I love to see little touches that inject femininity back into the piece.

I’d totally buy and wear this blazer – perhaps with a creamy lace tee, fitted dark wash jeans, and brown (heeled) leather boots that come up just past my calves. I’d have to double check with my mirror, though – I’m quite petite, and the boots and blazer combo *sometimes* (but not always) makes me look stumpy. And that’s no good.

Like you said, a blazer always does the trick. It pulls any outfit together and completes it. Blazers also cover many figure issues-bonus! Thanks for the great examples. They're all cute and extremely affordable.
