Blazers are no longer just an accoutrement to a stellar ensemble; they’re now coming for your layering game, too.
But for those whose outfits require a piece that straddles the fence between two polar opposites, there’s a new style coming for our wardrobes and it’s warm, woollen and achingly winter-ready.
Woven into Ganni’s autumn/winter 2021 collection was all manner of woollen warmers, including one seriously oversized 90s zesty lime green and lemon boxy blazer, while for Maje, the woollen blazer has been given the full Gossip Girl treatment with an oversized tweed number.
The beauty here is that these blazers not only offer the same sartorial prowess as their cotton counterparts (the boxy sorts that were draped on the shoulders of the style set all summer long), but they also provide a touch of extra warmth thanks to their weightiness. Really, what could be better? It’s a win-win; style and substance. These are a few of our favourites.
