Elizabeth and James Carnaby Blazer
There are few wardrobe items as versatile as a black blazer. With slacks, it can go to the office. Pair it with jeans for a look that can range from casual to punk. Pull it on over a dress to dress the ensemble up or down, depending on the dress. Really, the only problem with the black blazer is that it's hard to find interesting variations on the theme.

This new take on the basic black blazer does bring something slightly new to the table, which is likely why it is a current best seller in the Contemporary department at Saks Fifth Avenue online. The Elizabeth and James Carnaby Blazer is a luxe, tailored Italian wool blazer with a button front and notched lapels. The unique part is the bright white lining that peeks out at the back of the button cuffs and the dramatically slit tail -- click through to view the backside to see the magic. This bestseller is just as versatile as a plain black blazer, but does it all with just a little more style.
