I'm looking for a blazer to replace the black one I have. I tried on a black tuxedo blazer at Zara. It fits well, but the sleeves will have to be shortened (as always). BUT with today's post in mind and all the colours on the runway, I'm hesitant on buying a black blazer.

I've always gravitated towards black and it is an easy colour for me to wear, but the last few years I've been wearing more and more bright colours like yellow, tomato red, hot pink/fuchsia, blush and white. And I want more citron in my wardrobe!

Or would a black blazer be a wardrobe essential for me?

Help me think through this.

#1: Zara tuxedo blazer with a-line skirt and jeans.

#2: Old blazer with satin lapels, puffy sleeves and satin detail on sleeves. I love these details, but the sleeves are too tight in the upper arm. Looking at the pics, I think it's time to let go asap.

#3: Boiled wool "blazer" (it's more of a hybrid between cardi and blazer, though)

#4: Zara tuxedo blazer on model

ETA #5: Zara tuxedo blazer with sheath
