The Chicest Spring Outfits Have This Classic Item in Common

Gone are the days when the only time you'd dust off and don a blazer was for a stuffy job interview. Today, they're an integral part of our wardrobes, bestowing everything we choose to wear them with—be it a floral dress, mini skirt, or a pair of jeans—with a polished finish.With the power to make you feel powerful, stylish, and put-together as soon as you slip one on, it's little wonder that blazers trend year-round, though, in our opinion, their appeal peaks in spring.

While these styles have historically had a more bohemian appeal, it's been interesting to se...
