The blazer’s best qualities? It’s sophisticated, structured and stylish. This cover-up can make even the most casual of looks appear polished.
TIP 1: The blazer is no longer limited to officewear – it’s a fabulous off-duty item. Wear it with more casual garments, like a T-shirt, to give it a trendy lift.
TIP 2: Add a pop of colour and fun to a neutral wardrobe with a bright blazer in a shade like cheerful cherry red.
TIP 3: Wear it in the evening with a jump suit, statement earrings and block heels to glam it up.
