An oversized blazer is a buy you won’t regret: it will see you through autumn evenings and winter workdays. This season marks the return of the ’80s power blazer, with style insiders sporting oversized, masculine fits over feminine dresses and skirts. At Calvin Klein and Chloé, blazers were worn two sizes too big, paired with loosefitting midis and cowboy boots to sidestep the Working Girl look. Or follow Emilia Wickstead’s lead, and offset colourblock separates with a classic grey-check jacket. Buy now to blaze a trail right through until next summer.
