Why You May Want To Toss Your Black Blazer

Even if the last one you bought is actually half of your very first interview outfit (that is, the two-piece suit from your favorite department store in your hometown mall), a black blazer is most likely a part of your fashion arsenal. It's classic, polished, and makes any jeans-and-tee combo look truly special. But, maybe it's time to toss it away hide it from sight in the back of your closet and swap in a different shade.
As one College Fashion story points out, a navy blazer is just as versatile as that good, old piece of black (blazer) magic. Navy acts as a neutral when paired with prints, or it can add an extra pop of color when mixed with other solids or softer shades. Of course, selecting a perfect blazer (no matter the hue) that can top off practically any ensemble is already a bit of a challenge.
