Gabrielle Union blazer

Essential No. 6: The perfect blazer

Blazers are awesome — we’re seriously huge fans. You can wear them to work, use them to dress up jeans, throw them over a dress to keep warm (like Gabrielle Union did here), we could go on and on.

Bottom line: if you don’t have one already, get one. It could even be half of your interview suit we talked about earlier. But again, Inlander points out that it doesn’t have to be black. Blazers can be almost any color, just pick one that goes with what you already wear. Or if you’re looking to jump on board with the latest trend, try tweed, it’s huge this fall (although it never really goes out of style, so you won’t feel dumb buying it).
