There are certain items in your closet that are wardrobe must-haves: the crisp white Oxford, the sweeping wide-leg pant, and, of course, the tailored black blazer. Known for its polished appeal, the black blazer is an office-appropriate staple that can take you from power meetings during the day to client cocktails at night, but that's not at all—it also has the versatility to be worn off-duty. Thus, we took one black blazer (Theory, $425; and styled it three different ways. Wear it with a tank and cool-girl jeans on the weekend or with a blouse and flared trousers for work. And don't forget to rethink black-tie attire with a black blazer worn with a barely there embellished cami and an alluring wrap skirt. The result? Three foolproof outfits.
