Ok, so I don’t mean to reduce the amazing, poignant, and hilarious Samantha Bee down to her wardrobe but seriously, I love this woman’s wardrobe.
On her weekly show Full Frontal With Samantha Bee, Bee skewers politics and culture through a distinctly feminist lens– much like she did as The Daily Show‘s Senior Woman Correspondent. I was not alone in my pain when TDS didn’t offer her the anchor’s chair when Jon Stewart left, but I have to admit that I think she found the perfect home for herself on TBS.
I know I am not the only Girl Boss drawn to Bee’s awesome anchorwoman style. It’s similar to my own, to be honest– basics underneath with badass blazers or boots to go with. Thanks to some handy screen-grabbing and Bee’s YouTube channel, I’m going to try my hand at sourcing Samantha Bee’s Blazers.
And, uh, once you see the links, you’ll know why I’m also going to try to offer less expensive alternatives.
Way back in February, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee premiered. This is a pretty nondescript red blazer so I don’t think I can find the exact match. I like this linen riding blazer from J.Crew, this BCBG one over at asos.com, or the Smyth long shawl blazer at Revolve.
She also has a similar jacket in green, but I think it’s Balmain’s double-breasted, basketweave cotton jacket. Click the image for the link but don’t pitch a fit at the price. For a less expensive white blazer, try the asos slim tailored jacket in crepe.
I really love the color of this jacket, but again, it doesn’t have any crazy characteristics so I can pull it out of a lineup. And truthfully, the closest I can find to the color is this frumpy Calvin Klein number at Macy*s.
This one I got on lockdown– and it’s on sale. It’s the Rag & Bone Windsor Striped Woven Blazer.
Personally I wouldn’t wear it with the matchy-matchy shorts, but that’s just me. If the Rag & Bone version is a little too much, try this Elie Tahari version at Macy*s.
Guys, I like this blazer and it kills me that I can’t find it. A cool version of the look might be this House of Harlow satin blazer on Revolve.
This one was super tricky, but I did find it. It’s the ATM Anthony Tomas Melillo Camouflage Jacquard Blazer, also on super sale.
I think this is the same Balmain jacket from February, but in Navy.
Another look I would wear literally every day. This one is the Stella McCartney Ingrid wool-piqué blazer.
This is a nice basic black blazer, so I’m not gonna pull out a $2500 Balmain jobbie, even though I want to. Try this $150 Vince Camuto version.
Ahhhhhh this one is so awesome. And I found it, guys! It’s the Akris punto Stretch Cotton Polka Dot Blazer.
Golly, I love this one too. Another one from one of my long-time favorite fashion labels. Akris puntoSingle-Breasted Wool-Blend Jacket.
It is KILLING ME that I can’t find this jacket. I love it. I need it.
Like, part of me thinks this is the same Balmain jacket she’s been sporting in other colors, but I can’t find that jacket in Kelly green. But I can’t tellllllll. Help!
Bonus: RNC Special
And that white and blue striped jacket is the SMYTHE Crossover Tennis Blazer.
Have you seen any of Sam Bee’s jackets in the wild?
