The calendar may say that it's almost summer, but the weather is definitely telling another story. With cool mornings, unexpected rain clouds and generally unpredictable temperatures, a spring jacket is practically a necessity. The best bet for a stylish cover up that is functional and versatile? A smart denim blazer.
A denim blazer is right at home with a casual ensemble -- from jeans and a tee , to khaki shorts. But, the structure that comes with a blazer silhouette creates just enough oomph to fit in well with dressier outfits. Add your denim blazer over a floaty dress to anchor the look; pair it with a pencil skirt for a sharp look that can go to the office. Now, take a look at our three stand out picks for the top denim blazers of Spring 2011.
This dark wash AK Anne Klein Denim Blazer with white top stitching is polished, yet still really fun. Try pairing it with pale blue distressed boyfriend cut rolled jeans to balance out the formality of the clean lines.

The slouchy look of this Tencel blazer by Acne is fashion-forward, but sure to be ultra comfortable. It would look great with skinny jeans or slender tank dress.

Current/Elliot's Co-Ed Blazer features super worn-in stripes for a unique take on the denim blazer trend. It's sharp with white denim, as shown here, but would look equally cool with slouchy khaki trousers.
