What to Wear: the Long-Line Blazer
I recently read a piece in Harper’s Bazaar that said to add a long-line blazer to an outfit for an instant style update. Not long after, I happened upon this great summer linen version at Banana Republic. I have a serious soft spot for chambray and it’s the perfect material for the warmer months of the season ahead. It wrinkles easily, but gets a pass because everyone knows that that’s the nature of linen. And the long silhouette is indeed striking. Quite a change from the cropped versions of previous seasons – which I still love and hope aren’t moved on from quite yet!
I’ve paired the blazer here with pants that are long-line themselves. They are some of my favorites – incredibly comfortable! The t-shirt is another great find from Vince. It’s tricky to get a t-shirt that works for work, but this one is worth the extra investment – the cotton is super soft so you’ll want to wear it on the weekend and yet the shirt has a professional polish that makes it office appropriate.
