Ok so usually despite whatever else I’m wearing I always feel “polished” in a blazer. It really is the perfect jacket – dress up skinny jeans and heels, matches dresses and skirts. My favourite blazer is a basic black number I picked up from H+M about 2 years ago and I’m not ashamed to say I’ve worn it to death. For spring/summer I feel I need a lighter coloured blazer but that seems to be easier said than found! Because of my (ahem) bigger bust I need it to be single breasted, preferably only one button and since my budget is almost none existent it most be cheapish. Also I really don’t like jersey blazers.
I’ve had a look around and this is what I’ve found so far and I’ve broken it down to what I can afford, what would skint me and what I’d have to take out a bank loan for:
Within My Budget
Label Lab at House of Fraser £75
This is actually a bit above my budget but think it’s really rather close to what I’m looking for and think it would give me a nice shape.
Dorothy Perkins £35
Liking the shape of this and the colour is pretty much ideal, this could possibly be THE blazer
The Stellar Boutique £36
Not technically a blazer but would suffice. I really like the studding detail
I know I said that jersey blazers were a no-no but this is more structured than any other jersey ones I’ve seen.
Vero Moda £36
2 buttons instead of 1 but this is lovely.
Zara blazers last a lifetime so this could be worn year after year.
In the picture this looks like it could be exactly what I’m looking for. I was in Zara the other day but didn’t see it, may have to track it down.
Could Buy And Not Eat All Month
Bailey at Zalando £120
Aw man I wish I could own this!
DAY Birger et Mikkelsen £239
A bit darker than what I need but ever so lush
HUGO at StyleBop £286
The colour would go with everything.
Would add a touch of polish to any outfit.
The Kooples £185
The most decorative of all the blazers featured, the lace is lovely.
Alexander McQueen £1195
Beautifully made, who wouldn’t want to own this????
Ralph Lauren £1008
MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA £930
Oh wow what I would give to own this!
What do you think? What blazer should I buy?
