The 30 best blazers for women of 2021

There’s much we have to thank the humble blazer for. No longer is the outerwear-turned-officewear staple cookie-cutter “business” or stuffy. Now, the latest generation has proven the classic blazer to be versatile, polished and even airport-ready.

Some of the best blazers we found are from Express, Princess Polly and Nordstrom. But, we found some gorgeous plaid button blazers from Amazon (yay for affordable and Prime-eligible!) and some stepped-up splurges from Saks Fifth Avenue and Revolve.

Whether you want to channel Olivia Rodrigo’s White House visit (where she wore a stunning pink tweed number we’re still in awe of) or have a go-to piece to toss on with one of our favorite work dresses, there’s nothing quite like a blazer.

Not to mention, any blazer will pair nicely with our 65 favorite bodysuits, too — if you’re into the whole seamless, tucked-in and professional look, that is.

To make your shopping spree easier, purchase one (or more) of the top blazers below. We included color, sizing and fit options with each find, if applicable, to help you score the best blazer to wear for trekking back to the office.
