Just Blaze

There's a new hot commodity in town and its the eternally stylish blazer. Tuxedo style, preppy chic or cropped are the way to go. Gone is the power shoulder pads and stiff formal look. These are all about laidback sex appeal, via a touch of masculine tailoring and softened lines.

Here's my pick of the bunch.


Balenciaga did one of the best preppy chic blazers. The classic navy blue with white trim makes this so Hamptons. Fabulous.


BB Dakota are a very affordable and very cute brand and this blazer just tips the $50 mark. Not bad.


I wasn't too sure what to expect from her TopShop Collection but the result has been stylish, affordable and wearable...and so the rich continue to get richer. (i.e. Sir Phillip and Cocaine Kate).


This foxy chica at the LaRok fashion show rocks the layered look with the diaphonous top and cropped military style blazer. Hot.


For a little more spring in your step, try this pastel striped blazer from ubersexy brand Nickel. Its the perfect little blazer to throw on with jeans and a tank (from Tiger Tem) and look absolutely fabulousy turned out...at a moments notice.


A white blazer makes a strikingly sophisticated alternative to black and as expertly styled by the www.net-a-porter.com team, this Vanessa Bruno blazer teamed with True Religion jeans and Missoni wedges is the perfect way to add a touch of quintessential style to your blazer.
