As temperatures begin to rise, it's time to phase out your winter coat in favour of a spring jacket. Enter the blazer, which has had something of a resurgence over the past year. Worried it'll feel too corporate for spring? Fear not, this season it's been reinvented in bright colours, bold prints and signature stripes. Here's how to make the blazer work for every summer occassion.
Desk to drinks
Looking for a sharp 9-5 staple? Be brave and go for bright colour waves, like the below fuschia number. Throw on over loosley tucked in shirts, beach accessories and summer's staple; the mule. Our handbag of choice? Straw, of course.
If floral dresses aren't for you, opt for a floral blazer instead. Top of our wish lists? The Biba palm print version, which comes with matching trousers. Don't want to go all out? Wear with blue denim, a metallic handbag and chunky wedges. Underneath, go for a silky cami - perfect for those hot summer evenings.
Who said blazers are just for work? Fitted sillouhettes can easily be thrown on at weekends too. We're in love with stripes at the moment. Wear yours with blue denim and white trainers for a simple finish - perfect for Saturday brunches and Sunday lunches. Add a luxe leather backpack, a red lip and some subtle hoop earrings.
