The blazer; A definitive wardrobe staple that we should not forgo come sunnier months: just update it and opt for a lighter brighter version for the season ahead. A well-tailored blazer is guaranteed to make you feel put together in the most unpredictable weather (current -British Summertime!) or at an unexpected event. It is your one stop transformative piece.
Wear your blazer over a dress to add instant chic or throw over jeans and a white Tee to smarten the look. The cut and length of your blazer is key; for a more relaxed feel go for an oversized/boxy style (size up if need be.) For a preppy stance opt for a more tailored, cinched in waist, creating an instant hourglass silhouette.
Personally, I prefer a slightly oversized, longer piece in beige or cream for summer – worn unbuttoned to keep the look relaxed and if it’s all looking a little too ‘formless’ I simply add a belt around it. The light-weight summer fabrics are more malleable then their winter counter-parts, so go ahead and experiment.
Wear it buttoned, belted or casually draped over your shoulders …your mood…your style…your look… I’ve put together some inspiration below.
