Sure, we all know what basics professional women are supposed to have in their closets, but if you’re buying one for the first time or replacing one you’ve worn into the ground, it can be a pain to find exactly the right incarnation in stores.

As noted in our last summer blazer roundup, there are other lightweight options for summer — silk, seersucker, cotton pique, etc — but nothing breathes quite like linen, and there are a ton of great options for linen blazers in stores right now. Ladies, what is your favorite fabric for a lightweight blazer? Have you bought any linen blazers recently that you’re loving (or have any from previous years that you can’t wait to break out of your closet)?
