Stella McCartney's Spring 2009 collection started my obsession with light colored blazers, but finding one on a budget is proving to be more difficult than I anticipated. If you're looking for a light-colored blazer in a neutral hue such as beige, tan, khaki, light gray, light pink or crisp white—which fashion heads are calling the "new neutrals"—I think your best bet would be to hit a European chain like H&M or Zara, both of which take most of their design cues straight from the runways. The best light-toned blazers I've found online have been at Topshop.com, which is finally opening their first store in NYC next week! I'm sooo excited. Anyways, have a look at my online finds in the widget below. Hopefully I'll have more luck finding black boyfriend blazers on a budget, which I'll feature in an upcoming post.
