A tailored blazer is usually frowned upon in laid-back LA, but this spring many designers have put a new, more casual spin on the look. Silhouettes range from cropped to long, with leather or faux-fur trim, featuring metallic fabrics or a printed interior lining. Neutrals and monochrome looks are back in style, so consider matching a blazer with a t-shirt underneath, but don't be afraid to use one as a pop of color on top of a simpler look. Wear one over a dress, with shorts, with leggings, with jeans or with matching suit pants. Or do what we do: wear one over a slinky tank top or LBD at night as a stylish way to stay warm.
