Seriously, we could create a blazer feature every other day. This well-cut jacket is like a piece of power-clothing – it can give you shape in your shoulders, clean up a denim look or be teamed with a suit for some business chick chic . Oh, the ways we like to wear our blazers and the love we have for them all. Our love is so endless, it’s best to keep this feature with a tighter edit and here we are taking focus on block-colour blazers. The well-worn styling tip is to follow in the footsteps of Amanda and wear an all-black outfit that allows your blazer to shine – it’s entirely foolproof and a brilliant last-minute grab when you’re in a rush. We also like to style a pretty dress and boots with a sharp blazer or there is the ultimate smart casual combo of slim jeans, slip on flats and a fabulous blazer. In fact, we think every woman should own that combo! No matter your personal taste, a blazer can be worn on high rotation in any wardrobe.
Below, we love how Amanda is staying true to her signature edgy style and adding in some statement accessories. You also can’t go past a classic cami to pair with your jacket – it’s simple, sexy and stylish.
The over-the-shoulder look is something we love. Sure, it’s not great for long walks but it adds instant glamour for a fancy meal and doesn’t cost a cent. Just quietly, we are also major fans of a splash of yellow with black and white!
Adding a printed necktie really ups the style ante to any look but if you’re pairing with a corporate-style jacket then ensure the remainder of your look is casual. A pair of jeans does that perfectly; if you’re opting for pants, think palazzo not tailored; and avoid a pencil skirt all together as you will look like a hostie.
Evidence that a blazer is for all style directions right here! – even the rocker chick can rock one. Velvet fabrics teamed with leather pants will keep you feeling warm and looking hot.
Double-breasted jackets don’t suit everyone worn buttoned up. If you’re an hourglass then ensure it still nips you in the mid-section; for the straighter ladies, we prefer a looser look. Either way, this classic deep green with gold buttons looks extra swish and a clean white trainer is always welcome in our books!
