Here’s our pick of 5 blazers that’ll easily set your style ablaze, no matter the season.
The Un-structured Blazers
Quite like its name suggests, unstructured blazers are free of structure, i.e., it lacks details (inner folds and shapes) that lend it definition. They look so very snug, feel light and are everything we ever wanted in a blazer!
Casual & Comfy Boyfriend Blazers
These are menswear-inspired blazers, hence the oversized, relaxed appeal. And, don’t forget to wear it like you actually grabbed it straight from your boyfriend’s wardrobe!
Light-weight Linen Blazers
Move over cotton and tweed. Linen blazers are the reigning king of savvy off-duty style! Its light-weight fabric allows your skin to breathe easy and serve as the perfect summer layering.
Rugged Elbow-patched Blazers
The scruffy elbow-patch effect is rough, edgy and majorly sexy! What started off as a design turned awry and soon kicked up to become one of the biggest fashion successes. Lucky for us!
Quirky Patterned Blazers
This bold and contemporary style literally rolled in, caught eyes and conquered! Calling out to all the wild and crazy colour-fanatics! Believe us, with all the options available, you’ll feel like a kid in a candy store.
For something more classic but refreshing, try the floral or geometric pattern.
