Talk It Out

Where to buy a black blazer for under $350?

... when you want that Saint Laurent cut on a sandwich budget.

I feel like the best version of ‘me’ when I’m wearing my black blazer.

I throw it on over a T-shirt or sometimes nothing at all (except pants, obvs), and it has the power to make me feel polished every time.

But not all black blazers were created equal.

It has to be exactly the right length, slightly structured at the shoulders with a relaxed fit at the bottom… and if it doesn’t come complete with all the finishing touches (gold buttons, a satin lapel and pockets to match) then it doesn’t cut it.

Finding ‘the one’ is hard – just ask Kate Moss – she goes vintage and then relies on a good tailor to do the rest.

But if you CBF doing that, and you want one now without having to sacrifice lunch money for a decade (#HANGRY), I’ve found Hansen & Gretel, Mango and Zara are a good place to start.

NOW IT’S YOUR TURN! Tella me your black blazer sourcing secrets in the comments please (cause you can never have too many I say) xoxo
