Buying items with longevity has always been of the utmost importance, but it’s especially important right now. This is why we are introducing a new series on how to wear wardrobe staples, where we ask different stylish women each month to show us five unique outfits that centre around a piece that’s important to them. It proves that a perfect purchase will always be chic, and we hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Now over to Lauren of A Style Edit to extol the virtues of her favourite black blazer.
I’m a huge blazer fan, and my simple black version can be partnered up with pretty much everything in my wardrobe. I love to incorporate androgynous pieces into an outfit, so there’s just something I find so much more stylish about an oversize fit. If I were to choose one piece I had to wear forever and with every outfit, a black oversize blazer would win every time. My go-to? It’s a £135 style from COS that is still available, and I’d say it’s worth spending a little extra on this high-street jacket, as it will be a better cut, fit, and quality of fabric—all of which will contribute to you wearing it for many years to come. So without further ado, keep scrolling to see the five ways I’ve been wearing my black blazer recently and to shop out the pieces if you want to re-create any of my looks.
