"With the perfect blazer, anything is possible." - Rashida Jones
Blazers aren't meant just for the office anymore: celebrities, bloggers and everyone in-between are fans of blazers for so many occasions, from brunch with friends to date night. A blazer is an incredibly versatile piece and by experimenting with colour and silhouettes you will see this wardrobe staple in an entirely new light.
The Pinstripe Suit
This tried-and-true wardrobe staple is the key to professional power dressing how ever a blazer is not only for work. Find a blazer that is part of a suit you’ll want to wear beyond the office and you can maximise how you style the pieces as separates. Tailored separates are ideal investment pieces as they can be both relaxed and polished and are so versatile when it come to styling.
We love this classic pinstripe suit from B Young, designed in a relaxed fit for comfort and style. This is work appropriate but can also be dressed down with a pair of pumps and staple white t-shirt. This is such a modern and cool look that can be easily adapted to suit your personal style. Swap your pumps for a heel and you're ready for an evening out, or wear with a bright knit to add a pop of colour.
The Brighter the Better
Wearing a colourful blazer jacket shows off your sense of creativity and individuality, and colour blocking is a trend that works every season. We love this playful blazer from Vilagallo, its bright and beautiful! This is also a versatile piece that can be worn in a number of ways and is worth investing in. Solid colour blazers are easy to match with any type of print, and the key to getting this look right is to match your blazer to one of the colours in the print. This will keep the look cohesive, but still bold and exciting. Pair with your favourite denim jeans and fresh pumps for a fabulous day look that can take you into the evening. Really mix and match your pieces to create a beautiful look that you can wear with confidence.
For a more subtle look try combining your blazer with similar tones and hues. We love pairing neutral colours together as they create a chic and sophisticated look without being too dramatic. This beautiful fitted blazer from Oui is the perfect starting point for building a look. We also like to combine unexpected and contrasting pieces, such as these relaxed chinos and pumps with the tailored blazer. This really elevates the outfit and allows you to pair your blazer with more items in your wardrobe. You an also contrast your blazer with a brighter coloured top to enhance your shape and silhouette. This look pairs well with a blouse and pumps or a cami and heels!
