Earth tones, cropped blazers, and cords, oh my. I don't need them at all, but it's going to be hard for me not to at least try these on. I've been predicting a resurgence of shorter tailored blazers to go with loose-fitting jeans and I will be very happy if that takes hold. I really like the olive-y brown, but the checks are pretty great too... The cords look nearly identical in cut to the Boden cords, but finished more casually. The golden brown looks sumptuous.
