I’ve Analysed Hundreds of Outfits—Blazers Look Best Worn Like This
If there’s one piece that’s really coming into its own and making me rethink my wardrobe in a post-pandemic world, it’s the blazer. With no office or desk required, the new way to wear your blazer is nowhere near the photocopier, so your blazer-based autumn outfit options are almost endless.
One style, in particular, has been all over Instagram lately: the Bea Oversized Blazer from The Frankie Shop. It’s long been on my wish list (as has this & Others Stories iteration), and it’s Bea’s oversized boxy shape that makes it the undisputed favourite with the style set. However, with greater proportions come new styling challenges, and to make it work for you, there are a few pointers you might want to bear in mind. First, always keep your blazer unbuttoned for the most elongating and modern silhouette. If you don’t want to feel swamped by the generous fit of some of this season’s most trending styles, simply pair them with something sleek on your bottom half. Experiment with a blazer over your summer dress, and enjoy the high-low ratio the combination brings. More generous cuts are ideal to layer knits under as we enter the cooler months.
There’s a reason blazers are having a moment: They’re easy to throw on, instantly pull a look together and are the perfect piece to see you through the trans-seasonal months ahead. So shake off any notion that blazers are just for power dressing, and let me walk you through nine autumn blazer outfits that work perfectly.
