Now that the transitional period is upon us, it can be pretty tricky to figure out what to wear to suit the weather. It’s not quite cold enough to bring out the puffers, yet still slightly too chilly to brave going jacket-less. This is where the blazers come in. Perfect for work or play, a solid blazer can you take from 9-5 to 5-9 and everything in between with ease. Throw yours over dresses, jeans or wear it as part of a suit and find out why blazers really are your transitional hero piece…
1. Now make it cropped
Cropped silhouettes are 2020’s take on the classic workwear staple, making them a whole lot more party appropriate. Pair yours with your favourite denim and a pretty bra in case it peaks through. Add some heels and a sparkly bag and take this blazer anywhere but the office.
For effortless styling, throw a blazer over your favourite look of the summer for an added layer of warmth. We’ve kept it really simple here by throwing a black oversized option over a denim skirt. In terms of footwear, choose between chunky boots and trainers or – if you want to take this through to nighttime – switch out for some heels.
3. It’s still summer
We’re not quite ready to say goodbye to our summer dresses yet, even if it is starting to get a little breezy. Instead, add a pastel blazer to keep the summer trends without stepping out with bare arms. Finish with white trainers and a wicker bag and tell autumn just to wait a little longer.
4. As if!
Now that a lot of workplaces are opening up, you’re going to want to return to the office in style. Try out a skirt suit with a graphic vest for an informal touch, alongside some patent boots and the grab-bag that matches just about anything. Now, go nail your first day back…
5. Going out-out
The evenings are starting to become a little darker and whole lot colder as autumn draws closer. So whenever you’re planning on wearing that brand-new party dress, add a blazer on top. This houndstooth one is slightly thicker in material meaning you won’t be cold and pairs great with some sparkling silver accessories.
