Finding the perfect piece of outerwear for cool spring days and breezy summer nights is often a source of great frustration (for us, anyway). While it’s fine to choose a classic option, like a trench or cardigan, our favorite solution is the blazer. We’re not talking about the super-snug, Balenciaga-style, shrunken blazers from last season, but rather a longer looser shape. The new tuxedo styles (per Keira and Irina above) are one lovely possibility, but we’re also enamored with the oversized versions we’ve seen lately on Lake Bell and Ashley Olsen.



There is an unbelievable selection of blazers in stores now, but before we tick off our favorites, let’s address how the above ladies are wearing them. Recent recluse (seriously, where has she been?) Keira Knightley was spotted strolling in Paris wearing a black tuxedo blazer and a pair of MiH’s Berlin Jeans. We like how she pushed the sleeves up, just like Ashley Olsen did with her white blazer at the New York Sex and the City premiere. Miranda Kerr went for a slightly shorter shape with her semi-boxy cropped tux jacket, while Gwyneth Paltrow chose to wear a long and lean blazer while out and about in London. Paltrow is really into her blazers right now; she also wore an oversized cream Stella McCartney blazer for an Iron Man event. Our final two females, Irina Lazareanu and Lake Bell, both made spectacular style choices with their jacket selections. Lazareanu, seen here post-show during Paris Fashion Week, threw on a long pale gray jacket over a tee and suspenders, while Bell balanced the volume of her blazer with a sleek pair of graphite jeans.

One of the reasons we felt this story was particularly relevant is because blazers were not just a big spring trend (seen at Chloe, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Ann Demeulemeester), but are huge for fall as well (seen at Calvin Klein, Paul and Joe, and Erin Fetherston). So if you feel like buying a blazer now, know that you can use it well into next season. If Ms. Olsen’s white jacket inspired you to get your own, we’d like to suggest Topshop’s Oversized Blazer ($120) or the White Linen Blazer ($585) from Wayne. The antique white Double Breasted Blazer ($350) by 3.1 Phillip Lim is also amazing and it’s incredibly soft (feels like t-shirt material).

We also love the long length and cuff detail of Smythe’s Contrast Blazer ($570) and think Paltrow would approve of the lean lines of Helmut Lang’s Single Button Jacket ($520). On a shorter note, Twenty8Twelve’s Calandra Jacket ($418) has a cropped shape and tux-style that reminded us of Miranda Kerr’s blazer choice. Whatever you pick, at least you’ll have a seasonally appropriate solution!
