Being both structurally brilliant or (on the total other end of the spectrum) perfectly slouchy, the blazer is a necessary outerwear option for when you A) need a cover up stat, B) want to finish off an outfit or C) show them who’s boss. Don’t believe us? Read on to see 4 great ways to style your blazer this season, thanks – as ever – to 4th Street Wine and #TheStreetsAreOurRunwayTrends.
Contrasting a more feminine silhouette, an oversized blazer (with sleeves pushed above the elbows) is a perfect accompaniment to midi-skirt and heeled boots.
Making a bold statement in a suit is an easy and rewarding style choice. A printed, fitted blazer which ends around your waist is a simple way to create a formal look that isn’t drab. Gucci bag optional, but recommended.
The very on-trend biker shorts are a great juxtaposition to the blazer, creating an outfit which is seemingly classic and trendy at the same time. Choose a more muted palette or one statement print to keep the outfit day appropriate.
The blazer dress is back, and provides a fantastic formal wear outfit idea which is easy to achieve. Find a blazer with interest, such as fabrics or silhouette, like this velvet number. A pair of shorts hidden underneath will make sure you’re comfy and secure at all times…
With all that inspo, it’s time to have a glass of 4th Street and think how you’ll be rocking this trend this season.
