We almost lost the plot this week—just how long had we been waiting to wear our blazers? Ages. And we know you know it—this winter has been brutal, and now spring finally feels like it has arrived, bringing its lighter layers and new outfit ideas with it.
Much like your trusty pair of jeans, blazers never go out of fashion. So where do you start when deciding how to wear yours? You could just go classic and pair a grey checked version with a white T-shirt, jeans and ankle boots. But then again, there are plenty of classic options around too. Not to mention that there are some fabulous bold-coloured jackets that give any outfit a boost of fun.
Then there’s the big decision about whether you go for a double-breasted version. Or perhaps you’d rather a blazer that switches up the rules and has a waist-cinching belt. Maybe, though, you want to make a statement and match yours with a pair of trousers. To help navigate this sartorial minefield, we hunted down the best street style blazer looks, and they show just how varied this trend is. Although the allure of the classic trench will still draw us in, the blazer will always be king for making any outfit look sophisticated immediately.
