Workwear Wardrobe Blazers

Another wardrobe essential is a well-fitted blazer, whether single or double breasted, pin-striped or a solid colour. A blazer can be paired with trousers, skirts, dresses and jeans for a more casual look. The most important rule with a blazer is making sure you like it both, buttoned and unbuttoned and that it is not too big!

Collection of Colour

Collection of Colour

A classic is a black pin-stripe blazer such as this Warehouse blazer, great for power dressing! A nude blazer can look great for more casual as well as work looks. Nudes can be paired with all colours, grey/black/navy. However, if you like brighter colours, go for it such as the blue Hobbs blazer. Some nude inspiration are this Hobbs blazer and a similar Reiss blazer.

Play with Pockets

Play with Pockets

Check the pockets of any blazer before you purchase. My purple Ted Baker blazer shown has both real and fake pockets! Personally, I like to have some pockets as it is perfect for putting in an ID and some change. Clothes often have any pockets sewn shut, so be warned.

Secret Lining

Secret Lining

The lining of a blazer can vary in both material and pattern. If it is a bright colour, such as the grey Ted Baker blazer with a pop of pink, it is easy to roll the sleeves and transform an outfit. Although the lining material is important, make sure you won’t sweat too much in a sleeveless blouse and blazer. This lime Ted Baker blazer has a floral lining, excellent for spring. In contrast, this floral Hobbs blazer has a solid navy lining.
