The perfect blazer can seamlessly transition from work to an evening on the town. A blazer in a classic design, a neutral color and with a trim of embellishment will ensure you look stylish from day to night. I recently encountered this ideal blazer in a St. Charles, Missouri boutique, JOYS. The blazer is so functional  that after I received it as a gift it became a quick wardrobe favorite. This blazer represents the reason a merger between traditional lady-like elements and menswear elements in a single garment can be so entrancing. The blazer has the type of classic structure, round neckline and puff shoulders frequently representative of a girly-type of blazer yet the gold chain trim adds a hint of edginess. This type of blazer can be matched with a skirt and blouse or business trousers and a blouse for an uptown persona. Match it with cargo-pants or skinny-leg jeans on business casual Fridays for an elegant downtown vibe. Best of all, because of the chain trim, you can leave the necklace at home.

Similar blazers are available at multiple retailers inclusive of the following:

ASOS (, an online boutique, has a budget-friendly boucle jacket with gold chain trim available(

Bloomingdales has a blazer with gold chain trim available from luxury designer, Moschino Cheap and Chic.
