The classic blazer has gained a reputation as a wardrobe workhorse, and for good reason: it’s endlessly versatile, and pairs perfectly with everything in your closet — from pencil skirts to ripped jeans. It’s an anytime go-to that instantly elevates an ensemble from ho-hum to ooh-la-la. The return of ’80s and ’90s trends in recent seasons has brought a newfound relevance for the blazer as a standalone statement piece — and as a standout part of your overall look. 



No longer just for the office, a good blazer goes with you from day to evening, adding a warm extra layer in cooler weather and as an eye-catching cover-up in the warmer months. It’s a simple way to tone down a feisty outfit or add sophistication to an otherwise understated look. For everyday, try a classic style and color, like the wool-blend ATHENA blazer in goes-with-everything light taupe. This winter, try adding a blazer into your rotation as a layering piece in place of a cardigan or jumper for a touch of texture and added visual interest. Heavier fabrics can add weight and warmth, and lighter versions give any outfit an instant style upgrade. 


Menswear Gets a Makeover WIth a Nod to the Nineties 

Try your favorite blazer layered over a maxi dress, like the KAIA dress in bloodstone, with boots, tights, a warm scarf and an overcoat for a cozy commute to work during the blustery days of winter. Headed out to drinks or dinner? A blazer thrown on over a little black dress (or a midi, or maxi length!) adds a hip menswear-inspired twist to your typical going-out look. Bump up the intrigue with lipstick and heels for a polished finish.


When warmer weather returns, layer your favorite blazer over a linen button-down with jeans for a breezy look perfect for browsing the farmer’s market or heading to weekend brunch. Make it your own by adding a punch of color with a silk scarf and your favorite jewelry — try a brooch or long necklace for extra interest and texture. 


Contemporary, Classic, and Perfectly On-Trend

This season’s wide-leg trousers are a great accompaniment to the enduring style of a traditional blazer — and the perfect way to balance out a fitted style on top. Try pairing the CARA trousers in bloodstone for a trendy look that’s still suitable for work. Sneakers, boots, or heels all work equally well — it’s up to you to add your personal touch! No matter how you mix blazers into your wardrobe, you can’t go wrong with this closet staple to bring sophistication and style to any ensemble.
