UCLA’s campus is always speckled with students whose styles mix casual and professional, and blazers are just one way to accomplish this. As students who attend a challenging university that uses an even-more challenging quarter system, donning a blazer can achieve that “I have my life together” look, deceiving others into thinking that you got nine hours of sleep last night when you actually had zero. Blazers are form and function at their finest, perfect for when you need a garment thinner than a jacket but thicker than a shirt to carry around campus.
Worried they’re not creative enough? While their color range seems limited, blazers’ colors and design do come in a wide variety of forms, depending on where you look. But don’t see the neutral color palette as a drawback: the shades of gray and black that most of them draw from means you can match with your loudest accessories.
