Maria Menounos, breathtakingly gorgeous even while bearing a slight resemblance to Julia Allison, wore this mint green blazer to conduct some “Extra” interviews earlier this week. I really love the color, but in the form of a blazer, it’s tough not to evoke Don Johnson vibes, and it’s definitely more of a summer look in general. What do you think?

One of the more difficult voids to fill in our closet is the role of “fancy-ish evening cover-up.” Something you can thrown on over a pretty dress or flirty top that isn’t business-like (like a structured blazer) or casual (like a knit cardigan). That’s where the silky shirt-jacket comes in. We saw a number of celebs — like Molly Sims and Rachel Bilson — rocking this style a few months ago, but couldn’t find an affordable version for ourselves … until now. Topshop’s Crepe Unstructured Jacket comes in three colors and would look perfect over a glam dress or a pair of jeans. Your shoulders will be warm without the rest your look suffering.

Or, you know, don’t, and feel good that you got a similar-ish necklace for a tenth of the price! Keep reading »

“Boyfriend” everythings are available in stores right now. Madewell has bf T-shirts and ex-boyfriend jeans; DKNY has boyfriend cardigans; and Juicy Couture has boyfriend watches, to name a few.

Amanda Seyfriend gets the boyfriend blazer right by not wearing it with other bulky clothes, well, except for that huge handbag. Click through for seven oversized jackets that’ll make you look put-together in skinny jeans and a T-shirt, or business-appropriate when paired with a pencil skirt and a tank. Keep reading »
