Why Now Is the Time To Invest in This Classic Black Blazer For Women
Photographed by Oliver Hadlee Pearch, Vogue, September 2019

Gone are the days when a classic black blazer read as stuffy or corporate. Brands like the French label Jacquemus have helped redefine what the blazer means with runway iterations that are ultra-modern and yes, even sexy. This humble closet essential has become the outerwear equivalent of the white T-shirt—a staple that goes with sweats as well as gowns.

Not every closet staple is worth a steep investment, but when it comes to blazers, I’ve found that careful construction makes a difference. Interior pockets, expert tailoring and luxe materials are all important considerations. Which is why, with Cyber Week in full swing, I am going to add this Jacquemus blazer to my repertoire, and you should consider it as well. I’ve been eyeing one of Jacquemus’s flattering, cinched-at-the-waist, longline blazers to add to my wardrobe for some time now. The blazer appeals to a range of styles, as it carefully balances masculine and feminine. Lean into it’s oversized shape and wear it unbuttoned as a menswear-inspired piece, or bring forth femininity with the button closed, creating an artful cinched waist.

Here, invest in a piece you’ll have forever, before it sells out.
