DEAR COUGAR: I need advice. I want a fitted blazer, but one I can pair with a set of jeans, and a white v-neck. Am I weird? And what color would you shoot for? Keep in mind, I’m a GIRL!
This isn’t for a special occasion, I’m just looking for a good solid new staple to add to the closet before fall hits. I love my jeans but figure I’m out growing the jeans and sweatshirt daily combo that I adore. Help!

You’re not weird, you’re awesome! Personally, I wear that exact combination a frequently, and as a woman who loves her jeans this is certainly a common, easy and unisex look to pull off.
My suggestion going into fall would be to pair your jeans with a navy or dark grey blazer. Navy is the only one you can wear with both black and brown shoes. NEVER wear grey with brown shoes! Some people argue about that, but I’m a stickler for no mixing greys with brown shoes in fashion.
Keep in mind you should definitely wear heels and accessorize the heck out of this combo. You don’t want to go out too much on the masculine side of the line. Or maybe you do…I don’t know.
I hope this helps!
