Update your AUTUMN WARDROBE with this season’s MUST-HAVE JACKET …
While we may not be returning to school this week, our wardrobes certainly are as we set out to invest in a blazer for the new term. The jacket of the season for AW17, blazers are back with a bang. Seen on the runways of Saint Laurent, Stella McCartney, Céline and more, this school uniform and workwear staple is becoming an everyday hero piece.
For an updated take on the classic blazer look for oversized, 80s-inspired shapes. With lofty shoulders and longline fits, they are the easiest way to give your Monday-Friday look a cool yet professional edge. Come winter, wear it with a turtleneck underneath (as seen at Ellery) and a belt to cinch in the waist, and on weekends pair it with faded jeans, a slogan T-shirt and ankle boots for a laid-back look.
Heritage checks and traditional tweeds make a return this season in cool greys and autumnal browns, while smooth and sleek was the style at Céline and Victoria Beckham with polished black and navy blazers in an oversized fit making an appearance in the collections.
