The navy blazer, an anchor for a great look, regardless of what you pair it with. Its versatility and tailored refinement make it an essential in every woman’s wardrobe. I, for one, love a classic navy blazer with notched lapels and brass buttons, elements that nod to its menswear nautical heritage. But maybe you would like to eschew the traditional design in favour of another variation of this timeless item. Either way, the navy blazer will always covey a sense of ease and luxury to any outfit, adding unexpected structure to a summery dress or lending a masculine feel to a floral pencil skirt look. One other reason why I love it, especially now that autumn is fast approaching, is that it’s a great transitional piece. The shift between seasons can be difficult to handle wardrobe-wise, but you’ll certainly not forgo style if you go for the navy blazer.
