The black blazer is a classic. It's versatile and sophisticated and can be mixed and matched in many ways. I like to pair mine with skinny jeans and serious heels. Adversely, I like to wear one with a breezy Summer dress. As you can see, the options are endless. This Dolce & Gabbana Blazer ($848, originally $1,130), will never go out of style. The price tag almost made me gag so I had to go search for a budget-friendly one.

The day you realize you probably have enough LBDs to last you a lifetime (me, yesterday) but can't get enough of the classic noir color, consider the little black jacket, or what I am hereby coining the LBJ.
