white linen blazer + black skinny jeans (3)

A great blazer is an investment everyone needs to make to complete their wardrobe. I personally started with a black one and each season I have added to my collection. I purchased this white linen one on Gilt (similar) in early spring and have seriously worn it at least every other week since. (Last seen here.) I also just purchased this navy one [on sale] for fall.

Not only is a blazer practical for changing temperatures [going from the hot outdoors into the blasting A/C in the summers or for the crisp temperatures in the spring / fall], I think it is the easiest way to always look chic and pulled together.

On those mornings when I don’t have time to think about what to wear, I reach for a crisp blouse and my favorite blazer of the moment. And I’m done! What’s the go-to item in your closet?
