Wardrobe Must-Have: Classic Camel Blazer

J.Crew Regent Blazer

Happy 2017! I hope you had a great time ringing in the new year with friends and family. 2016 was good to me, but I’m ready for 2017 and new challenges, opportunities, and memories. What about you? What are you most looking forward to in 2017?

Each year, it’s good to have items in your fashion arsenal that are timeless and classic. Trends are fun, but it’s good to have pieces that won’t go out of style. One could argue that this whole outfit is classic, but today I want to talk specifically about this camel blazer. A blazer is one item every woman needs in her closet. While I think black and navy blazers are great for professionals, I really love the versatility of this camel color. Not only is it great for work, but the color makes it casual for every day without feeling stuffy.

My office is pretty casual, so I love that this blazer and denim combo incorporates the best of both worlds. I can feel put together for work, but also easily wear this out for drinks afterwards. While I like the look of a navy blazer and jeans, the camel is different but still timeless.

If you prefer to dress up a blazer, this particular camel color also looks great with a white button down shirt and navy dress pants.

If you’re starting 2017 with a new job or internship, or even just looking to invest in some new pieces for your closet, consider adding a classic camel blazer. It’s a piece you won’t regret buying, and it will last for years.
