A black blazer is beyond just a staple. Even if you live in jeans and a T-shirt and can hardly think of an occasion to slip into a tailored jacket, you probably still have one. After all, it's the one item in your closet that color coordinates with everything and has that instant-polishing magic few other wardrobe essentials can master. But, just because a black blazer has special powers (so to speak) does not mean that it deserves special attention (i.e. your whole pay check). In fact, sometimes it's those truly affordable buys that end up being the MVP of your entire closet.
So, we turned to Rank & Style who scans the web in search of products that have the best customer reviews, receive the most editorial coverage, or, in this case, have garnered serious buzz. And, when it comes to the black blazer that delivers the most bang for your buck, it's the Topshop slim fit tailored blazer that dominates. Priced at a sensible $90, it's a small sartorial splurge that will yield tons and tons of styling possibilities.
Of course, in case you're not impressed solely with what the majority has to say, allow us to persuade you a bit further. Ahead, we've put together a few examples of exactly how one little, savings-account-friendly blazer can offer endless outfit options.
