With lapels so wide they’re steeped in 1980s nostalgia, this season’s most striking blazer silhouette will add a hint of vintage inspiration to your tailoring repertoire. The beauty of this piece, though, lies in its ability to elevate understated wardrobe staples and create a look that not only captures city-chic dressing at its most impactful but that also feels utterly effortless in its elegance.
There’s nothing quite like a satin blazer to enhance the character of a workwear look and when styled with a sleek leather pencil skirt, it makes up one part of the ultimate modern-day power pairing. Sharp, clean lines and a minimalist silhouette keep the look professional but its subtle sheen and super-soft texture offer something unexpected but undeniably luxe.
IN THE EVENING
Perhaps most relevant when styled for evening affairs, the satin blazer – worn best with slim-leg tux trousers – strikes the balance between modern minimalism and bold statement. Keep it on rotation not just for pre-Christmas events but between seasons as well; it’s the best way to dip your toe in the pool of androgynous dressing whilst erring on the side of femininity.
