20 Not-Your-Average Black Blazers That Feel Anything But Meh

For such a widely respected wardrobe staple, after time, the black blazer can start to feel, well, pretty lackluster. Of course, it's a classic item you're told you have to have — and if you work in a traditional work environment, might even need — but if you're still wearing the same old piece that you bought at your local mall in 2008, you may be due for an upgrade.

It only takes a few standout variations to restore your faith in this trusted closet essential. Lately, we're seeing everything from tuxedo-inspired cuts to double-breasted fronts, boxier silhouettes, inverted lapels, and even fresh fabrications like silk or velvet. If you're feeling extra bold, you can go for embellishment, or something completely untraditional, like a tie-front. All we're saying is, if the first word you think of when you look at your black blazer is underwhelming, you're not alone. That's why we've found the next best thing.

Click on for 20 black blazers that will restore your faith in black blazers, we swear.
