Welcome to The Essentials, our weekly series highlighting a must-have classic, key to building a timeless, pulled-together closet.

Recently, traditional workwear has been turned on its head as many of us embrace the work-from-home life. Still, equipping yourself with smart-looking and hard-working essential pieces like a fitted blazer is always a good idea. You may be rocking cashmere joggers on the bottom, but you'll win best dressed on Zoom in a silk printed blouse and a flawless fitted blazer on top. On Saturdays, swap in a blazer in lieu of your bulky jacket to elevate weekend wear. The styling options are endless, from prepster monogrammed styles to a rock n' roll velvet look. Ahead, we've got 10 fitted blazers to wear pretty much all year long—and they're about to be the MVP of your wardrobe.
