Which blazer is more versatile?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I'm getting a new blazer, which one of these do you think is more versatile, the lighters blue, or the navy blue?  It will be worn predominately in a corporate casual work environment (jacket and tie, but no suit).  Thanks everyone.

Definitely the navy. For one thing, I don't think you'd really want to wear the lighter blue in fall and winter.

i agree that Navy is the way to go for the all-around workhorse color here. the light blue would be good in Spring/Summer only

+1. The navy blue should be your first blazer; the lighter blue could be your second.

Oh this is hard. Both colors look really great and I especially like the lighter blue color because it shows off a fun personality. But for a corporate casual setting I'd suggest the navy blue one. It easier to mix and match and more appropriate for work.

Clearly the navy, not only because of the color, but also the lapel width and jacket length.

I think the navy is more versatile and conservative but the light blue has more personality in it. My vote goes to Light blue if you can pull it off!

I don't like peaked lapels on blazers, so I'd vote neither if you are asked about these two specific blazers. Ticket pocket on the navy blazer is also a deal breaker for me, as are patch pockets on the bottom one.

If you are asking just about the colors -- I'd go navy if I lived in the north (NYC, Boston, Chicago, etc.) and lighter blue if I lived in the south (Miami, Atlanta, LA, etc.).
