What is one of the most indispensable items in my wardrobe? A good blazer. Black is a natural since it goes with anything but it could very well be any other neutral color as long as the blazer fits you like a glove and is well suited to your body shape. If you're short don't get too long of a blazer. Something that hits right around you hips is perfect. Make sure you can do it up easily and that the buttons don't pull. It should be snug but not uncomfortable. I know that double breasted blazers have come back into style as of late but I still tend to shy away from those since they can make you look larger than you are. I fell in love with this little velvet number at Anthropologie. The cool thing is that it's cut like a riding jacket, longer in the back and very fitted around the waist. The stance ( which is where the top button closes) is a bit higher too which is good for gals with a bit more chest like me. It's made of stretch velvet which makes it extra comfy. This blazer transitions easily between funky hip when paired with jeans like here, to sexy soiree when worn with a short skirt or over a slinky dress. A well fitted solid colored blazer is a staple in any wardrobe.
