Classics Week: A Black Blazer

In my early career, I was guilty of over-wearing my black suit blazer.  It was the only black jacket that I had at the time, and I quickly wore out the elbows.  I learned the hard way the importance of having more than one basic blazer.

A simple black blazer can work in any workplace.  If you have a casual office, wear it with ripped jeans and a t-shirt.  With a business casual office, layer it over a jersey dress and boot.  For a professional office, the sky is the limit — during the Legislature, I wore mine at least three times per week.

This Mural One-Button Blazer is a sleek item with a simple look.  No frills, no extras.  Just an affordable jacket that has better quality than its price would suggest.

Plus-size?  Try this affordable Amanda & Chelsea blazer.  Petite?  This Kasper blazer has a crisp look.  Prefer a two-button blazer? I like the sleek look of this Calvin Klein blazer.
