Five Spring Jackets Even an Intern Can Afford
Mar 30, 2010
This week, I will be dedicating my afternoon posts to the cadre of Hill interns who keep this government running. The under appreciated and unloved young people who devote their time to our government deserve fashion recommendations that they might actually be able to afford. So here are five wear-to-work blazers priced at under $100.
This sweater jacket will help keep you warm in the frigid, air-conditioned Capitol. After all, bitching about how cold you are is not the best way to make a good impression. Also, you can pair it with black or white separates which will help you get a decent amount of wear out of it.
Bright coral, anyone? This blazer will look lovely with a white/cream skirt or worn over a floral skirt/dress. It’s a punch of color that is sure to get you noticed.
Everyone needs a basic navy blazer. You can wear it with white, light grey, khaki and just about any color that you can come up with. I like to wear my navy blazer belted over sheath dresses when I start to run out of outfit ideas in the middle of the session.
Add a little something extra to your flirty summer skirts and dresses with this zipper trimmed jacket. The cap sleeve is perfect for those warm summer days when long sleeves are just out of the question.
Need a basic, dark jacket for Spring? While lighter is better, the feminine details on this jacket make it a cut above your average dark blazer.
