When I first heard that blazers were making a come back, my thoughts turned to my school uniform days, and it was a pleasant sight! However, with the various cuts and styles now available, not to mention the colours and patterns, blazers have taken on a whole new style inspiration and one that will definitely become a staple part of your fashionable wardrobe.

If you are like me and love wearing jeans (alot) I think a blazer worn over a fitted smart top will certainly give your everyday wardrobe an easy-chic update in an instant. It’s the perfect alternative to an overcoat or jacket especially when shopping with friends or sneaking in a cheeky little lunch date with a loved one.

NEXT have an extensive range of blazers from animal to floral prints to open fronted and tailored styles. There is something to suit everyone on every occasion.

For an everyday chic look NEXT have a really lovely animal print and open fronted blazer available. The blazer comes in a long length making it perfectly ideal for teaming over a smart top or lightweight jumper and your favourite pair of jeans. Although this blazer features a bold animal pattern, the subtle colours will easily blend well with most colours in your wardrobe, making it easy to mix and match your wardrobe staples.

However, if you are looking to update your working wardrobe NEXT have catered for this with their ultra smart and chic tailored blazers. These have been designed with elegance and a touch of formality, a smart match with trousers or a shift dress. The colours vary from black, greys and even check patterns to name but a few.

House of Fraser also have a wide choice of ladies blazers. The classic tailored double breasted and brightly coloured jackets can add a splash of colour to darker pieces in your wardrobe. Or go with a traditional countryside look and opt for the classic riding jacket, with contrasting elbow patches.

Therefore, whatever your occasion be it day or night, make the newly inspired blazer a staple piece of your wardrobe this season.
