If you happened to go to a school where a blazer was part of the everyday uniform, then you’ll know that the majority of your time (in between making your tie as teeny tiny as possible) was spent trying to avoid putting the totally “square” cover-up on. Now, some years later, we’re choosing to wear blazers at any given opportunity.
Whether it’s a cult buy like the Mango corduroy beauty that even got Alexa Chung’s approval or the checked offering you’ll see on every fashion girl’s feed, a blazer is something we should all own at least one of.
For autumn/winter 2018, it looks like one particular style is coming to the fore: the camel-coloured jacket. We know camel coats have long been a staple you can wear on repeat, so we’re pleased to have a more autumnal addition to our wardrobes.
Victoria Beckham put an official stamp on things when she chose a tan, oversized blazer (with the sleeves pushed up) for her London Fashion Week runway bow. But in more affordable-fashion circles, we’ve noticed it’s an amazing quality & Other Stories version (yes, you know the one) that everyone in the UK (and beyond) wants to get their hands on. As such, it has already sold out online, but a & Other Stories source has told us it’s still available in most stores. For now, scroll down to see 12 alternatives that are just as good.
