There are staples in any wardrobe that can be easily swapped out with a vintage option. Blazers are such an example. Vintage blazers are known to have interesting lines and tailoring, unique embellishments, and most often made from high-quality natural fabrics.

A navy blue blazer is the epitome of a wardrobe staple. Vintage versions are plentiful in thrift stores, vintage stores, and online. I have several navy blue jackets and blazers in my closet. Vintage blazers from the 1940s to current fashion finds. This one, in particular, is a Goodwill find from several years ago that cost less than $10. It’s from the 1980s, is 100% wool, fully lined, and has gold metal buttons; a weakness of mine.

I’ve worn it here with a vintage 1960s Kenneth Lane necklace that I bought from a flea market in 2017. That gold medallion is everything.

Whether you are the capsule wardrobe type or a maximalist like myself, I encourage you to consider buying vintage for your wardrobe staples. Vintage finds are often the most treasured items in my wardrobe of classic clothing.
