There aren't many jobs you can show up to wearing bedazzled bottoms that offer an unobstructed view of your underwear — I mean, would you trust a plumber if they showed up to fix your leaky sink in that? But such is the life of a Hollywood starlet, ever on the go from one glamorous red carpet to to another, keeping the naked dress industry alive.

Ashley Benson knows this all too well, fulfilling her celebrity duty as recently as this week, when she arrived to the premiere of the Princess Diana biopic Spencer in an ankle-length skirt that offered as much coverage as an actual fisherman's net. Naturally, she looked fabulous. More than that, though, she looked pulled together, professional, and dare we say restrained. A see-through open-weave skirt could have easily veered put-it-all-out-there Kendall Jenner (give us nothing girl!), but instead Benson drummed up mystery by topping off her look with a classic black blazer. Yet again, this staple saves the day.

It's in the classic black blazer's nature to pull things together, be it a t-shirt and jeans, summer dress, or, yes, a totally impractical but undeniably hot invisible skirt. In fact, what's cool about the classic black blazer is that it gives us agency to wear just about anything we want, because when we top it off with one of these, we're instantly the most authoritative person in the room.

The blazer's ability to basically always look good means your outfit formulas are suddenly very easy. All you have to do is put on some clothes (any of them), top off with a blazer, and you're good to go; Katie Holmes even made sweats lunch-date appropriate with the help of a well-tailored suit jacket — anything is possible!

While we'll leave the fishnet skirts to the A-listers occupying our screens, a classic black blazer is something anyone — even your plumber! — can get into. Shop our favorite blazers on Amazon below.
