Pippa Middleton Wears a Fall Must-Have: The Black Blazer

Pippa MiddletonPippa Middleton has the uncanny ability to nearly always look good in the simplest outfits.

Often mixing low-end pieces into her wardrobe and nearly always opting for comfort over high fashion, she's a great girl for moms to watch for fashion pointers.

Case in point: Pippa's amazing outfit as she walked to work in London recently.

I love that she wore a dress that could have worked at a cocktail party, but toned it down with a black blazer and flat boots to make it work appropriate.

And this brings me to a MAJOR fall must-have, not only for this season, but really for any year.

The black blazer.

Buy one and you'll end up using it in all kinds of ways, whether you're transitioning a lightweight dress into fall or dressing up a pair of slacks.

Check out a few of my favorite affordable black blazers after the jump and tell me in the comments if you have one in your closet!
