Blazers are very popular for any time of the year, no matter the temperature, season, or occasion. You simply cannot go wrong with wearing a blazer since it can be styled in any way possible, whether professionally for a job interview, or even glam'd up for a night out, the possibilities are endless.

I recently saw a slideshow on Parade.com which talked about BlazersbeingHollywood's New Trend, they showcaseda lot of the celebritieswhosimply looked amazing in their blazers, and it is wonderful to see 1 piece of clothing being styled so differently. Having said that we all don't have the funds to shop like celebrities, but we sure can find some cheaper alternatives at very affordable prices!

Below I have put together blazers that celebrities have been spotted wearing (on the left) and the affordable alternatives (on the right) which are all priced under $40:
