Blazers just got a style promotion
By Elizabeth Odey, 28 May 2017
Busy hustling your way up the career ladder? Or perhaps you’re just generally bossing your way through life. From cropped cuts, updated colours and dashes of new-season details, these 10 blazer styles are here to elevate your wardrobe from basic to boss. Let’s get to work…
1. Power hour
If this is going to be the return of the 80s power suit, then we’re totally OK with that. And can we just talk about those upturned shoulders…
2. Wonder woman
Ready to work white? Corporate meets cute with this side-tie style. Just beware on the morning caffeine run….
3. Pining for pinstripe
If you're looking for a style that means serious business, ASOS WHITE is your sartorial solution. This investment buy will see you through winter, and beyond.
4. Business in the back
Back is the new black when it comes to this sass-phisticated number. Style with a coloured shirt or tee (or dare to bare).
5. Nana chic
Tartan + lace = so many vintage feels. Let the blazer take the spotlight, or pile on the 80s statement earrings and backless loafers to take the look to the next level.
6. Fire fits
Bold, boxy and seriously boss – this is what 2K17 power dressing looks like. Play with your proportions by pairing a cropped blazer style with high waist pants. Matchy-matchy colours = serious style points.
7. Arm day
Sleeveless styles are a major necessity for that awkward in-between weather. Wear with your work shirt or polo neck knit for a lit M-F look, or layer over a retro tee and jeans for mega off-duty dressing. Oh, the potential.
8. Smooth sailor
Big presentation? Or big-day speech? Give yourself a sartorially sound confidence boost with this silver longline tux. All eyes on you, girl.
Make your mark with this inside-out blazer. The unexpected styling is a classic feature from the quirky Korean label.
10. Bell(e) of the boardroom
Wear your heart on your sleeve? Well, keep ‘em covered with these statement bell sleeves.
