TheFind Guest Post: A Denim Blazer is Your Go-To Spring Staple!



Once saved for formal business occasions or high-pressure power lunches, blazers have quickly transformed into a goes-with-anything wardrobe staple. Seriously -- throw one on with a jeans and a t-shirt and you've sky-rocketed your look about 10 points up the fashion scale. Pair the same blazer with a pencil skirt for your Monday meeting and you're dressed to impress! However, we move into spring, your favorite jacket won't necessarily grow tired, but it's time to give the blazer some seasonal touches! Everyone went crazy over the resurgence of chambray and denim jackets last spring, and this year they'll stay prominent but with some fresh updates. What's especially great about denim blazers, as opposed to your average tuxedo jacket or denim moto, is that they boast that easy-to-wear, breezy vibe yet still look manage to look polished and not too casual. Nab a military-inspired denim blazer like this vintage-inspired one by 7 For All Mankind, or go for a sleeker, more tailored look like this Isabella Oliver 365 chambray boyfriend blazer. For something a bit more casual, I love this Gap denim blazer, which is comfortable and flattering with cinched details in all the right places.
