You may ask, how was that blazer trend born? Well, back in the year of 1825 the Lady Margaret Boat Club in Cambridge used this “red blazers” as their club jackets. A blazer was intended as an outdoor wear and usually made of a thick, durable fabric. You often see them in airline’s employees, pupils from private schools, members of sport clubs, business women and men and in the army.
But since the line between menswear and womenswear became thinner and thinner over the years and women started to have a voice, the integral suit and of course the blazer became a essential part of every closet. From 2016 until now, every season, brands try to deconstruct that classic piece and turning it in a desirable and cool everyday statement must have.
They can be found in luxurious fabrics, patterns, neons and pastels in different sizes, cropped, boyfriend, oversize and simple. From Saint Laurent, Chloe, Christian Dior, Stella McCartney, MiuMiu to Chanel. Blazers are everywhere, in every colour, every pattern, in every brand. So with so many options, how can you wear it? Well the blazer will fit all the occasions, from classic to cool! For a classic theme, pair it with slick trousers, a killer heel, a clutch and gold jewels like Camila Coelho and Victoria . For a street casual look, pair your blazer with mom jeans, a tee or a cami top, boots or a chunky trainer and statement jewellery like Camila Carril, Sandra Pinto and Paola Alberdi.
If you are not convinced and still think that a blazer is a form of professional dressing, here are a few it girls (Negin Mirsalehi, Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Pernille Teisbaek…) and their take on this everlasting trend. From the nautical sports to the streets of the fashion weeks the blazer stuck and became a staple clothing piece for women around the world.
