Think blazers are just for formal occasions? Think again: they can be dressed up or down as much as you please and that’s exactly why they are quickly becoming the ultimate staple to wear all year round. Oversized, layered or worn as a dress, discover five different ways to style a blazer this season…
1. For a night out
When it comes to blazers, the options are endless right now and here the outfit to prove it. If a night out means wearing a dress to you, then this should be your perfect blazer: it’s oversized enough to be worn buttoned up as a dress and will make any old mini dress look bland in comparison. Especially when it comes covered in sequins…
2. For the weekend
Meet one of the biggest trends of the season: the plaid blazer. From the runways at fashion week to our Instagram feeds, we’ve seen them everywhere lately. It’s the perfect piece to embrace that effortless Parisian chic – just add a white T-shirt, a pair of denim flares and don’t forget about the beret (obviously).
3. For afternoon tea
Forget about the classic uniform-style blazer and skirt combo and experiment with different colours and textures to shake things up. Whether it’s for winter or spring, a colourful blazer can transform your outfit in seconds. This season, we love the idea of pairing a yellow dad blazer with a denim A-line skirt and vinyl knee high boots.
4. For the office
Everybody knows that nothing beats the timeless black blazer, because it really goes with anything in any wardrobe. If you want to wear yours to the office without being too predictable with it, pick an oversized style, pair it with a white blouse and then add some flared jeans, chunky boots and an on-trend handbag for a cool contrast.
5. For the lazy day
Wearing a blazer doesn’t sound comfy to you? We think it can be. A jersey blazer will feel less tailored and restrictive, whilst also keeping you warm on colder days. The coolest way to wear it right now is thrown over a graphic-print sweat, complete with a pair of flared jeans, a beanie, a crossbody bag and box-fresh trainers.
