Zara Blazer With Zip Waist
I get all sorts of excited when I stumble upon a unique piece that looks like it came off a runway, or at least one of those insane expensive SoHo boutiques, but has a price tag that is affordable and attainable. This new Zara Blazer With Zip Waist is one of those stand out pieces.

What I love about this piece is that it has the edge of Helmut Lang, mixed with the upscale ladylike approach of a Chanel jacket, wrapped in a Spring-perfect yellow coating. If I saw this jacket out of the context of the Zara shopping site I'd guess that it cost $300.00 - $500.00. The actual $129.00 price tag is just a phenomenal deal.

I think this funky blazer is styled perfectly here with the distressed, copped jeans and eyelet blouse. It's the ideal combination of casual and ladylike. I'd avoid wearing the jacket with anything too straight-laced. For example, pairing it with a black pencil skirt would yield a look that screamed bad '80s. Instead, concentrate on playing up the unexpected with something more casual like denim or even relaxed shorts.
