a new trend is hiding in the folds...

With the current influx of fast fashion, personal style blogs, and live-streaming runway shows, tracking down the origin of a new trend has become a very tricky task.

That said, when it comes to the two-tone blazer fad, we'd be lying if we said we knew who started it all.  But whether you credit Stella McCartney or Phillip Lim, there's one thing we're sure of: the contrast lapel is everywhere.

Perfect for adding a dash of femininity to the boyish look, or even to breakup an otherwise monochrome outfit, the trend is officially getting our stamp of approval.

Check out our favorites below and see which suits you best.
