Dress up or down with a blazer

Versatile, stylish and perfect for those in-between days when you’re not sure what the weather’s going to bring, the blazer certainly deserves its iconic status.

There are so many different colours and looks to choose from that there’ll be something for any occasion necessary—keep it simple and summery with a delicate white blazer, go classic with a tailored black style or be on-trend with a checked monochrome print, for example, or use it to channel wider trends with the likes of leather sleeves, bouclé segments or lace inserts. You can grab it out of your wardrobe whenever you need, and it has the power to effortlessly coordinate with any outfit for a smart, casual or all-out glam look.

So what are you waiting for? The blazer is a classic, timeless piece that will never go out of fashion, and if you make sure to keep it sleek and tailored you’ll find it’s the heart of your wardrobe for years to come.
