Since their creation in 1825, blazers have and always will be a wardrobe-must. Of course, with the evolution of style, blazers have been tweaked and revamped over the years, but the item itself has never left the trending pages of Vogue and fashion runways across the world.
But thankfully these days, it doesn’t have to cost you a sweet fortune to own the wardrobe staple yourself, just look at our edit below!
Whether you’re heading back to the office, planning a return to college, or just looking to smarten up your wardrobe, blazers are a great add-on to any outfit. They’re perfect work attire for both the comfort factor as well as being a fashion statement; it’s a win, win, really.
For a casual blazer that will work with any outfit, we adore this one from New Look. Not only is it affordable, but it also comes in a wide variety of colours and styles.
Oversized blazers are also seriously in and Zara has a fantastic collection of them too. From teaming them with skirts and leggings, to even cycle shorts (if you’re job has a chill dress code), oversized blazers like many blazers, are totally adaptable and really comfy!
Another great retail giant for work shopping is Topshop. They stock a great selection of suits for your werqdrobe, which are not only trending right now, but will make a statement time and time again.
Moving to patterned blazers, oversized check blazers work with basically anything, so it’s no wonder they’re always a popular choice. Smart casual? Check, check, check!
A popular choice for summer, especially when stuck in a hot office is a sleeveless blazer. Easy to accessorise and handy for dashing from meeting to meeting in the sun, we love this one from Topshop.
Shop it here (P.S, it’s on sale!)
Moving from summer blazers to winter blazers (which will see you through a good few seasons here) leather blazers are on the rise, and we’re obsessed with their vintage look and feel.
Another trend for summer is giving your wardrobe a colour pop. Just because you’re in the office doesn’t mean you’re limited to neutral colours. It’s summer after all and this zesty orange blazer is what we’re talking about. Another handy item for adapting from desk to dance floor.
Lastly, an honourable mention is the ever-trending blazer coats which always look chic and tie in with the Irish weather perfectly.
H&M have a great selection when it comes to long blazer coats and we personally heart this one!
Worried about heading back to the office? Don’t worry you’re not the only one. We’ve compiled a list of some easy tasks to get you prepped and ready for that return to work. Check it out here.
