I’d been shopping for a neutral-colored blazer for what seemed like ages but couldn’t find the one. I tried several but the colors were off, too yellow or taupe for my skin tone, and most felt boardroom serious. They also lacked an interesting element that would kick up the style notch. Plus, many were simply too heavy for Southern California. When I expanded my search to the sale pages on favorite online shops, I spotted this Chloé blazer at Mytheresa. The slight shoulder detail adds that special note I was looking for and the pale blush/tan (lighter than what I was originally looking for) works beautifully with the other pieces in my closet. I see it as a year-round classic.
The point here is to look beyond the opening page when online shopping. It’s easy to get wrapped up in the what’s new category, but if hunting down a specific item, a quick search in the sale pages may score you a winner.
