People always say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, or that there’s always more than meets the eye. But let’s face it: how you look matters. Alot. Your outfit can either make or break your interview or job promotion. What’s more, how you dress impacts how you feel, and the better you feel the better you’ll work, too. So, if you want to nail your next promotion, Instyle experts say wearing a blazer is your secret to success.

Now, there’s old, outdated blazers that look like they’re straight out of a second-hand consignment shop. And then, there are fashion-forward pieces that will make you want to stand a little taller and give you an added pep to your step.

Let’s start with the all-traditional color, black, but this time with a modern vibe.
