A popular look on the New York runway this past week was the blazer. Though it’s always been a work day staple, the fashion item is taking new shape in the fashion world as of late, and we’re encouraging you to give it a try!
Brands like Hermes and Balenciaga are beginning to put a spring on the classic piece of clothing. Whether you use it boldly at work, a statement of female empowerment day to day, or just a cute piece to throw over your outfit at night, you can’t go wrong with a good blazer year round.
Bring excitement to a classic style with a fun pattern. Brand Erdem showed this lovely floral blazer in luscious velvet. With the 1 State Gallant Garden Stretch Velvet Blazer, you can jazz up your day to day style, then be ready to go out at night and make a big slash amongst your fashionable friends.
Paco Rabanne dazzled the runway with beige color blazers, fished with light patterning. His slouchy, yet shapely, three button blazers make for a beautiful combination that you need in your closet. Try the Halogen X Atlantic Pacific Menswear Plaid Blazer. Though the pattern is a little harsher than Rabanne’s take, the boldness will make you stand out whether you’re at work or brunch.
Plain blazer’s are fitting for the board room, but can be boring at times. JW Anderson definitely agreed. He adorned the runway with chunky belted blazers and hints of fun patterns and materials. Slip into something new with the Milly Ruffle Sleeve Pinstripe Blazer. The chic twist on a power jacket stands out with metallic pinstripes and dramatic sleeves.
Buttoning up blazers are becoming a thing of the past. Designers like Hermes are choosing to use different closures for the standard jacket. Things like chunky belts and ties are now being used, and the fashion world is loving it. That’s why you need the Smythe Velvet Stripe Tie Waist Blazer to pay homage to this style.
Even after Valentine’s Day, pink seems to be the color of the season. What better way to embrace that than purchasing all your wardrobe favorites in every shape and shade of pink? The pink of the Smythe Wool Blazer that perfectly pays homage to Balenciaga’s long blazer will brighten up your day when paired with your favorite jeans and basic top.
Spice your work look with two contrasting colors. Hermes showed us contrasting shades of blues on their runway. So BA50 is giving you the TopShop Colorblock Blazer. The relaxed, black blazer was struck with some genius styling. Whether you’re at work or out with friends, you’ll love the white stripe that shadows one lapel. Try it with a pair of black pants or loose jeans for a transitional look you can wear all day.
No one knew what it means to embrace the basics better than Hermes this NYFW. Classics are classic for a reason, and that is why basic, fitted blazers never go out of style. Prove their musing right with the Liverpool Boyfriend Blazer. The menswear inspired blazer in a deep navy color will be the classic item your wardrobe has been desperately needing.
