4 Ways to Style a Black Jacket 

One of the most essential pieces in my wardrobe is a black blazer. It is stylish, polished and versatile.  As a former buyer who has worked for a number of retail companies, I know that the making jackets is more expensive than many other categories. The construction, fit and fabrics that going to making a jacket are more costly than many other clothing items. It is important to select a jacket of good quality because a jacket made of poor quality will show it. In this post, I selected a black velvet blazer from L’Agence and am showing multiple ways to wear it.

If you do not have a black blazer in your closet, think about investing in one. It is an item that you will wear for many years and can make it look different depending on how you style it. It is an excellent item to travel with because of the versatility. When selecting a black jacket, be sure to select a silhouette is flattering to your frame and made of a fabric you can mix and match with existing items in your closet.
