Must Have Piece: Red Blazer

This content has been archived. It may no longer be relevant

Today, I’m highlighting this gorgeous Italian Wool Blazer from the Banana Republic. BR is another fantastic resource for size-inclusive styles that take you from work to weekend and everything in between.

This blazer specifically is available in sizes 0 – 20, including tall and petite.

As a side note, we’re starting to see signs of the supply chain issue in many mainstream retailers, so if you find something you love and it’s available in your size, give it a try, especially if you have events for the upcoming holidays scheduled. 

You may be surprised just how versatile a red blazer in a classic cut can be if you have a solid selection of better basics already in your closet.

You can go total boss babe and go head-to-toe red with the matching wide-leg pants. If you go bold with color, keep the rest of the look subtle, a simple silk shell and a classic heel, and ensure the watch is impeccably tailored. This blazer is NOT a boyfriend style, rather, it fits close to the body 

Looking for more tailored outfit options? Break the pieces up and wear the blazer with your favorite black pants or pull out that black pencil skirt that’s been getting no wear over the last two years. Feeling brave? Try a winter white pant. 

For a professional yet casual look, the flared jeans from White House Black Market that we featured last month would look fabulous.
