A good blazer is a wardrobe must-have. It’s both polished enough to wear to the office and stylish enough to casually throw on for the weekend. It can easily elevate any ensemble and be worn every season. For these reasons, we’d argue that a blazer is one of the most versatile pieces in your closet — and no, we’re not just talking about your average black blazer. While there’s always room for the classic, there are so many different blazer styles that can take your wardrobe to the next level.
And seeing fashion-forward celebrities like Meghan Markle, Reese Witherspoon, Blake Lively, and Gigi Hadid on a recent blazer craze only affirms our need for more of the stylish jacket in our own closets. In our search for the best blazers online, we turned to one of our favorite retailers, Nordstrom, and rounded up 15 of our favorites from brands like Topshop, Court & Rowe, and Halogen; included in the mix is this edgy menswear-inspired jacket and this contemporary, long belted blazer. We even found a chic blazer dress that looks almost identical to one Meghan Markle owns. But the best part is, they’re all under $150, which is very reasonable for a functional piece that will last years.
