Jesenia’s Goodie Bag Find of the Week: Blazers and Jackets

BALMAIN (Blazer) (Actress Zoe Saldana)

BALMAIN (Blazer):  Actress Zoe Zaldana poses for paparazzi in a tropical blazer, that with the right combination has the staying power to rollover into Fall/Winter season. Make sure to combine with dark hues. Ebony is safe bet or you can venture off into colors like gothic-green, espresso and olive, with any type of bottom.

BALMAIN (Wool Military Jacket)

BALMAIN (Wool Military Jacket): The French House of Balmain knows a thing or two about Military jackets. So multi-purposed! Blends exceptionally with cigarette jeans and certain types of shorts. Can move with fluidity from work, to cocktails and right into a weekend wardrobe in a New York minute.

BALMAIN (Wool-Felt Double-Breasted Military Blazer)

BALMAIN (Wool-Felt Double-Breasted Military Blazer): Couple with wide-leg or skinny trousers with ease. For a darling approach, slip on a pair of black python boots.

BURBERRY PRORSUM (Wool-Blend Tweed Jacket)

BURBERRY PRORSUM (Wool-blend tweed Jacket): Espresso cargo pants (slim or cropped) or zipper skinny pants.

CHANEL (Cruise 2012) (Jacket Blazer)

CHANEL (Jacket Blazer): We’re looking way into the future (as far as Resort 2012), but don’t let the timeline discourage you. If you find an inspired jacket of this kind, charge it! Best for all seasons, not just Resort. The duo of this jacket with an all-black outfit is classic. Heather-gray is another option. Experiment with colors and textures, such as crocodile-green, snake-skin, burnt-orange, navy blue and red-wine.

HELMUT LANG (Jacquard Tuxedo Blazer)

HELMUT LANG (Jacquard Tuxedo Blazer):  With Helmut Lang you can relax in style. This blazer relates well to jersey tanks, tunics, draped blouses, loose t-shirts, harem pants. Or add your own creative style.

J CREW (Wool Herringbone Hacking Jacket)

J CREW (Wool Herringbone Hacking Jacket): Versatile as they come, cami’s, turtlenecks, cotton tee’s. Skirt variations include pleat, a-line and tapered, skinny and wide-leg trousers with leather or velvet shoes and loose denim with t-strap stacked heels.

McQ (Wool-Blend and Grosgrain Blazer)

McQ (Wool-Blend and Grosgrain Blazer): Rock with loose graphic tee’s, stovepipe denim (adorned in zippers) and stylish booties in suede, leather, laced or zippered. Stack your bracelets and watches. Don’t forget your Day of the Dead skull ring, necklace or bracelet and pair with onyx-studded earrings.

MOSCHINO (Wool-Blend Boucle Jacket)

MOSCHINO (Wool-Blend Boucle Jacket): The perfect weekend jacket. If you’re planning on going out for brunch or any afternoon event, go in a camisole, stovepipe pants, ballet flats and a bold-face watch with a delicate ring. Then spritz some CHANEL Eau De Tendre. For an evening event, try an all-black ensemble, like a camisole, trousers, leather slingbacks, a python mini clutch, gold stud earrings (preferably CHANEL) and a gold floral cocktail ring. Don’t forget a few dabs of CHANEL Allure Sensuelle parfum.
