Blazer brigade


If there's one thing taking over our Instagram feeds at the moment it's blazers. Be it velvet, check or heritage tweed they're a big deal this Winter and we're loving the versatility they bring to our most basic of basics.

We like our blazers served up very low key. Slightly oversized and mannish we find they work best when thrown over jeans and a t-shirt or roll neck with not much else. The key is simplicity so not to feel too put together or twee.

There's no escaping velvet this season and Wendy's sumptuous navy jacket from Massimo Dutti is a great way to wear it. Dressed down for the day time is our favourite way to wear this look but it will also look fab thrown over a simple slip dress for Christmas parties. 

I opted for a heritage check and love the boxy shape of this one from Zara. I'd say to definitely go double breasted if you're going to buy in to this trend as it helps to feel a bit more borrowed from your boyfriend and avoids it feeling too equestrian.
