The versatile wardrobe piece you can wear 7 days a week
"If you asked me what my most beloved item in my closet was, it would be my black blazer." - Liz, Sequins and Stripes
"This specific blazer from Jones New York is a new favorite. I love its drapey shape, making it a little more casual and super slimming on the body. I wore this look to a quick dinner date with Dave, and I love that I could easily pair it with a distressed pair of denim once it cools down a bit." - Liz, Sequins and Stripes
"Whether it's a classic version, or an updated mixed-media blazer like the one above, these pieces can not only function as perfect seasonal transition layers, but can also easily top off your look a full seven (not just five!) days a week." - Mary,The Classy Cubicle
"For me, pairing a blazer with a traditional sheath dress or pencil skirt is the obvious workweek go-to. Today, I'm challenging my normal instincts by wearing the blazer with this plaid coat, striped silk blouse, and oxfords. The mix of prints and athletic vibe of the ensemble serve as a good reminder that a wardrobe staple like this blazer doesn't need to hang in the formal work event-only section of my closet." - Mary, The Classy Cubicle
"If there's one thing I can't get enough of, it's a well-tailored blazer." - Meaghan, District Sparkle
"No matter the occasion, I'm always reaching for a blazer to complete my look. The right blazer can easily up the ante on an outfit, and give it that finishing touch it needs to go from good to great."- Meaghan, District Sparkle
"As a working girl, I’m usually looking for any and every way to spice up my day-to-day wardrobe." - Christine, The View From 5'2
"That being said, it can get really expensive and difficult to continue to come up with new outfits every day. A crisp black blazer is my best friend when it comes to extending the wear of my more seasonal items." - Christine, The View From 5'2
"The California girl in me loves a simple jean and t-shirt scenario, but my inner stylist demands a little something more. Enter the blazer." - Jen, The Effortless Chic
"It’s an easy way to take your look from day to night, or temperate to chilly. You can’t go wrong with a classic piece like this one from Jones New York. In fact, their whole collection this season is full of classic pieces your closet shouldn’t be without." - Jen, The Effortless Chic
Layering is a crucial component of fall style, and your best defense against the season's up-and-down (you know -- sunny one day, chilly and overcast the next) weather patterns. This fall, we're really craving versatile blazers for wearing over dresses at the office during the week, with stilettos on Saturday nights, and with boyfriend jeans on Sunday mornings.
The power of a beautiful blazer is that you can wear it just about anywhere, save perhaps the gym. It's the ultimate layering piece, and if you do your picking right, you can get by with just one (although, if you're like us, you'll definitely want more than that). Jones New York has a blazer for every style and taste this season, and our contributors agree. Click through the gallery to see all the ways they're wearing their Jones New York blazers this fall.
