Why The Blazer Will Always Be A Cult Summer Buy
It's officially boss girl summer. We've been waiting for this – and so has our blazer collection. This season, it's all about feeling good and looking bold. Focus on serving powerful looks as you're clinking glasses with the girls. We've got your back this summer – you just need to make the plans for wearing the five blazer-focused outfits we've got lined up.
PUSH MY BUTTONS
Imagine turning up to dinner in a vibrant pink matching skirt and blazer co-ord with strappy sandals. You'll look killer while rocking an updated city socialite kind of vibe – and who wouldn’t want that? If heading to a beer garden is more your thing, slip an oversized textured blazer over a pair of light-wash mom jeans and a bodysuit, then finish off the look with a pair of mule heels.
It's all about twinning tops with bottoms this season. Rather than the traditional mono-colour, go for a patterned option and really make a summer statement. A classic wardrobe go-to, these outer layers are so versatile that you'll find yourself reaching for one beyond summer's hazy days. Style your blazer with matching high-waisted flared trousers and heeled sandals for an image that could easily take you from wedding guest to holidaymaker in Marbella. For a more day-to-day outfit that fits with your summer weekend plans, add a plain white tee and fresh kicks to your matching set.
STRIKE A POSE
If you're wanting to channel red-carpet Zendaya at your next wedding this summer, a power suit is a necessity. You'll walk into any event knowing you'd make the best-dressed list if they had one. A structured women's blazer is a layer we think everyone should own. Step into a party radiating confidence by wearing one as your top and buttoning it up to achieve a plunge neckline. If your party-season agenda includes a family event, leave the jacket open and opt for a silk cami underneath – keeping it family-friendly but still fashionable.
We're taking inspiration from Clueless this summer – we've all lusted over Cher Horowitz's wardrobe at least once, after all. Time to make it the real deal with one of our ladies' summer blazers. From oversized shoulder pads to checked patterns, these throwback jackets are perfect for taking you from weekday work to weekend brunch with your besties. Opt for a co-ord skirt, kitten heels, soft makeup and slicked-back hair for a summer vibe that's suitable for wining and dining. Or, change up the skirt for tailored trousers and a white cami for days spent in the office. Think your boss will send you on the lunch run when you look this good? As if!
THE WILD CARD
Blazers not your thing? Keep your look fun with a colourful, cropped denim jacket. A punchy layer made to update your weekend looks, make walking the dog/coffee run a street style event wity skinny jeans and a logo tee. You could even throw it on over an LBD for a casual-cool look to impress.
