If you thought blazer fever would cool after the Balenciaga craze, think again. Jil Sander, Luella Bartley, and Etro all showed the preppy piece for spring. But rather than go for one that screams a particular label (and becomes dated within the season), try a simple, unassuming one from Urban Outfitters. Rendered in a shrunken fit in solid navy polyester and viscose, the blazer can mesh into any summer wardrobe from nautical to minimal to business casual. It's a reliable go-to, even if you left schoolgirl age long ago.
