All Important Basics: The Blazer

Before you start wearing your thick and heavy coats again, blazers are the perfect item for early autumn days. It is one of the most essential pieces you have to have in your wardrobe. If you want to dress up or dress down, you can combine it whatever way you want. Seen being worn from the office to the pub, from cropped pieces to the oversized boyfriend blazer, you just cannot go wrong with this all important basic. Top-tip: update old blazers with shoulder pads or military buttons to give them a little more 'edge'.  

 Blazers (from top to bottom): ASOS (first three), Zara, Topshop

Streetstyle inspiration:

Which blazer is your favourite? And whose streetstyle outfit do you find most inspiring?

  8. I love the third blazer.

    I think blazers are a great way to look more pulled together in jeans and a tee. Even better, it's can totally change the look of an ensemble.

    Autumn is almost here in the US and I'm totally in the mood for blazers, they fit in so well with the weather. I always love to match them with shorts, skirts, dresses, jeans, basically everything in the colder weather.
