{the crested blazer}

The crested blazer had been adapted from its traditional English schoolboy and well-bred, aristocratic origins to become a part of the season’s preppy, collegiate look, along with wellies, tartan and plaid, and elements of the Equestrian Style.

Paired with jeans and a silk blouse and worn with a casual elegance, the sharp, blue-blooded tailoring of the crested blazer is no longer quaint and Old World, but stylish and thoroughly modern.

It can truly be SO SO sexy! I love it paired with a frilly scarf and jodhoppers (sp?)! The looks is strangely curvacous!

I have been on a blazer hunt since last spring! The Gwynne Blazer by Joules just might do the trick. Thanks my dear - your eye is spot on, per usual. :)

Where my WASPs at?? Good stuff!

LOL Milly :)

If you rock it like Balenciaga or our favourite Sartorialist girl, the look can be a little more rock and roll and less WASP-y . . .

Absolutely gorgeous. I couldn't find a traditional blazer last Winter for anything, only swing jackets. Maybe we'll see more this Fall. I love your mix of fashion and decor posts. Very nice indeed!

I like this best the way the Sartorialist girl rocks it.
Another great post.

Oooh, so inspiring. I had my hands on a blazer of this style last summer and DIDN'T buy it. I'm still mad with myself.

I wasn't convinced until I saw the photo from Sart, and now I think I want one, the Balenciaga of course.

Whoo! I love the preppy blazer look.

I ordered the navy blue blazer w/ white piping and buttons/patches from Victoria's Secret way back in.. August? It's still on backorder :( Maybe I'll get it at the end of the month..

Can't get enough of a navy blazer! I love in the tropics so alas all my blazers are in storage - can't wait to get back to cooler weather to wear them - saving for a RL version - the pinacle of preppy chic!

This has to be one of my favorite posts on your site! I love the preppy look that Gossip Girl has set off - I'm obsessing over headbands in addition to blazers. :)
