In a few months’ time, we’ll be talking about closet cleanouts, what to toss, what to keep and all things organization— I guess the energy of ushering in a new year seems to do that to people. But regardless of whether it’s January or the season for spring cleaning, one category of clothing I virtually leave untouched is my blazers. You could probably call it a blazer addiction. Yes, that means my assortment of them is currently bursting at the seams, but at the frequent rate that I wear them, it seems like a fair trade. Out of my current collection, camel blazers, in particular, have been receiving a lot of airtime. It’s the shade I reach to first (sorry black blazers) and feels especially fitting for the moderate L.A. winters.
While camel coats have long been a perennial staple among stylish people everywhere, its blazer relative hasn’t always been as ubiquitous. That was until the most recent fall-winter runways released a score of them at shows like Gucci, Fendi, The Row and, more. With its fashion street cred up, the camel blazer has become more of a familiar face not only at the who’s who of clothing stores but also within my very own closet. Since I consider myself fluent in the language of cool blazers, I took the time to assemble the absolute chicest and best for your shopping pleasure. Keep scrolling to see them all along with my runway and IRL inspo to keep your sartorial juices flowing.
