Black blazer must have with YOOX

Hi Lovelies!!

One piece of clothing that I am happy to splurge on is a black blazer. Classic blazers never really go out of style, and I love that I can wear this from day to night by simply changing shoes. Black blazers are definitely one of the staples that that every girl needs in her wardrobe. I probably own about 10 black blazers!! (I know… but they are all so different!! hahaha like a true shopaholic!)

I picked up this new Giovanni Cavagna Blazer as part of a collaboration with www.yoox.com. The original price was $997 and YOOX had it for just over $300, but I notice that there only seems to be one left at the time of writing so the price has jumped up – but have a good look through their site, and check out their big brand sales from time to time. I’m always on the hunt for an amazing deal online. YOOX is a great place to shop, as you can find loads of discounted items and they have a ridiculously long list of designers if you want to shop by name – click here to do that.

Im so in love with the details on this blazer, the amazing fit, and of course the lapel collar which gives this jacket a bit of an edge. (It’s not just another black blazer!!) Ok so it’ll be a little bit hard to find this particular one until more stock arrives, but have a hunt around and click here to see all of the black blazers they have. I definitely recommend something a little fitted with enough shoulder width to highlight the structure of the jacket – sometimes the detail gets lost with black pieces because there are no shadows cast on the piece itself, so you want to make sure it cuts a striking silhouette.

One big tip for finding blazers is to be really happy with the general cut and texture of the material, and if it’s a little too large, don’t be scared to get it tailored. I’ve become pretty good friends with my seamstress as I’m always getting her to adjust things for me to make it fit my body perfectly, and I suggest that you find someone similar so that you can regularly fine tune pieces that might be timeless and a little expensive, that way it’ll never look like it just came off a rack sale! Don’t forget to drop into the Miss Gunner Shop from time to time, if I ever find bargain picks I’ll put them in there!!!

    I have a few black blazers, they are all slightly different and so so valuable to me! Mostly cause they are just so re-wearable and they would take a bit to replace now. Love this one on you, good buy!
