If I’ve learnt anything over the years, versatile items are a must-have in your wardrobe. With a busy lifestyle, one item you shouldn’t live without is a blazer! I’ve always found it to be a workhorse in my wardrobe as it can work for myriad occasions and styled in so many different ways. The great thing is you only have to invest in one once and you have a plethora of different looks at your fingertips. One blazer can take you a long way, no matter the colour or fit. Whether you’re working our or headed to a meeting, here are three ways you can style a blazer (I’ve worked with the Camilla and Marc Wembley style), paired with my current favourite brands.
Wear it to work
There’s nothing quite as polished or chic as a blazer, so it’s a definite must when it comes to workwear. Wear it with a matching pant to embrace the suiting trend and switch out the top from a smart blouse to a fashion forward top to take your office look to the next level.
Dressing up activewear
Have a coffee date after Pilates? Elevate your look by popping on your blazer. This simple styling trick will enable you to get more wear from your current activewear pieces. My go-to brands when it comes to the activewear space is PE Nation, as I love the splashes of colour they incorporate into their designs. If you’re all about sporting a neutral clean look, Alo Yoga is certainly the pick.
Need an extra layer of warmth or an element of chicness? A boxier/ oversized blazer looks divine with a slip-dress. It’s a great event look, plus it’s perfect for navigating your way through transeasonal weather.
