If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile, you’ll know I’m a fan of the classics. Instead of spending my money on statement pieces, I prefer to invest in luxe basics that will be in my wardrobe forever. Whether that’s a Burberry all-weather trench or a versatile tote, these are the pieces I gravitate towards time after time. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good print (like this one or this skirt I just bought on sale!), but a lot of prints tend to be seasonal. By the time the next opportunity to wear it comes around I’m already over it! That’s why I’m always looking for elegant staples. Last week I came across this black oversized blazer and this camel double-breasted blazer and knew that either of these would come in handy. They are both long (yes, please!) and have that sleek, streamlined look I always love. The problem is, I can’t decide which one to buy! Which is your favorite? I think I’m leaning towards this one…
The camel for sure. I love it!
I’ve been looking at trying to find ones like this! really great post xx
I’ve never owned one, but I’ll have to try it out. It’s just so hot here Miami most of the year. I barely, got to wear my cool snow boots I bought. I had to have these snow boots just in case. Maybe I need to book more trips up north, so that I can wear pretty coats like this and my snow boots. XO LOL! You’re right though, a nice jacket like this is a great investment and will last for many years to come.
I’d go for the black one! Especially if you already have a camel colored Burberry trench!
I only have one oversized blazer and LOVE it. I wear it all the time – especially to dress up simple skinny jeans. Maybe I just need to invest in a second one because that camel one is to die for!
Love it, I have a few of the vintage variety but need to invest in a nice camel shade.
I couldn’t agree with you more. Investment pieces should always be closet staples!! I really need to start looking for a blazer thats not black ;) Love this post Merritt!!
I think with your skin tone the camel one would look amazing!
I couldn’t agree more about investing in classic pieces! My personal favorite is handbags but I can never have enough blazers and jackets! I love your choice here – it will be perfect year round!
I love them both – can’t go wrong!
So true about investing in style! And the great thing is they’ll tailor it to fit you to perfection.
I like both but the camel one will look amazing with your hair : )
Brooke du jour
I’m more into black, but go with the one that will match with most of your wardrobe.
I love a classic blazer! XO
I feel like I look like I’m wearing a paper bag when I wear an oversized blazer, but I’ll take your word for it that it’s a must have piece! Love your picks! xx
I love these. I think I would have to go with the black, because a light colored investment piece is probably not in my best interest, lol!
