Grey has been one of the star palettes for this fall and winter, and there are plenty of celebrities showing that grey doesn’t have to be dull or boring. Consider the simple grey wool blazer, as seen on the likes of Kate Moss, Liv Tyler, and Rihanna: it’s a multi-functional wardrobe piece that can be easily dressed up or down.
To get the look for less, try the All Saints Claxon Jacket. The key to getting a great look with a grey blazer is to choose a style that is slim fitting and curves in at the waist. If sleeves are too long, spending the few extra dollars to have a tailor shorten them is a great investment, particularly in a piece like this one, that will never go completely out of style.
And of course, since it’s grey, it will go with just about any other color: bright red, pink, purple, even tangerine. With understated grey, you can feel free to experiment a bit with color and with your accessories. A bright scarf, for example, is a great antidote to a dull winter day. Accessorize your grey blazer with a great pair of earrings and shoes, and a fabulous handbag, and you’ll look pulled-together, professional, and up-to-the-moment stylewise.
