It’s hard to disagree with the old adage that trends come and go (most recently seen in the revival of all things ’90s fashion), and here’s another one that’s difficult to dispute: Certain pieces simply withstand time and trends, thus falling into the “classics” category. A leather jacket, a good pair of jeans, a simple white tee, an LBD, and a refined blazer in a trendless colorway (we’re talking white, beige, and black) all fall into this group. They’re investment pieces you can—and will—wear forever and ever. It’s that simple.
Today, however, we’re focusing on the last of those aforementioned classics: the blazer. We’re highlighting the best black-blazer outfits, as seen on some of our go-to street stylers. All of the looks below prove that this forever piece is truly a versatile wardrobe staple you can team with everything, whether that’s a pair of skinny jeans or an elegant white slip dress. We are fairly certain that all of the featured outfits will convince you to scoop up a black blazer ASAP. (And if you already own one, then why not add another to the collection?)
