Whenever I get approached to help someone reorganize and prioritize their wardrobe I always start with the basics and a blazer is one of those.
It is one of the easiest items to wear and adds polish to any outfit.
You can wear them with jeans or cycle shorts and still look like you have pulled together an immense outfit. As you can see I have many blazers and I love them.
Tweed, linen, cotton all great fabrics to buy blazers in. If you are new to the blazer game I would recommend getting one that is a relaxed fit and in a fabric that holds up well over time and if you decide to squish it in your tote won’t completely wrinkle. I've linked a great one HERE.
Also always go for a lined blazer and don’t shy away from shoulder pads.
Another great tip is that you don’t have to spend a lot to look like you did!
Blazers are an item that you can buy (dare I say) cheap and look designer.
H&M and Zara do great ones, but I have also seen amazing ones at Forever21 and Target. Linked HERE is a super similar one to what i'm wearing in the above picture.
I’d love to see your blazer style, so make sure you tag me on instagram @style.devine !
