I’m featuring this solid blue blazer (pictured), but here’s the story behind it: I’ve been obsessing over this different plaid blazer (in a single, solitary lucky size 4) for weeks — it is not MY lucky size, but if it is yours, do consider it. But I started poking through the rest of the Vivienne Westwood collection at Yoox, and found some great stuff (it’s like a treasure trove!). And I found this green blazer (gorgeous! Lucky size 6 only) as well as — dumdumdum — this lovely blue linen blazer (pictured). It’s available in more than just one jacket (sizes 2-8, natch), as well as in black and white. I’ve always been surprised at how versatile a light blue blazer can be — wear it with a black turtleneck on a chilly spring day, or a crisp white blouse or shell in the depths of summer, accented by pretty much ANY color of the rainbow (yellow! red! purple! green! orange!) — and I love the slight drama this one brings. It’s $385 at Yoox (and I think this is the matching skirt). Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Blazer
Psst: Not Westwood, but this $60 dress at Yoox looks amazing if you’re a size 6 or 8.
