The Chicest Spring Outfits Have This Classic Item in Common

·3-min read

Gone are the days when the only time you'd dust off your blazer was for a stuffy job interview. Today, blazers are an integral part of our wardrobes, bestowing polish on everything we wear with them—be it a floral dress, a miniskirt or a pair of jeans.

With the power to make you feel stylish and put-together as soon as you slip one on, it's little wonder that blazers trend year-round. Though, in our opinion, their appeal peaks in spring. As we shed our winter wear, blazers become the perfect tran-seasonal cover-up.

Many of the best blazers out there have oversize silhouettes (or can be bought a size up without sacrificing the overall aesthetic), meaning they can be layered over jumpers until temperatures rise. When they eventually do, they look sophisticated paired with even the most basic T-shirt and trousers. Case in point: the following looks. We've found seven incredible spring blazer outfits to try this season. Scroll below to see them and to shop the key pieces to re-create the outfits for yourself.

1. OPT FOR TONAL HUES

Style Notes: Aimee Song is a master of monochromatic dressing, often wearing different tones of one or similar shades top to toe. We think this peach-blazer ensemble is her best interpretation of the look.

SHOP THE LOOK:

IRO Adelie Twill Blazer (£142)

Frankie Shop Belted Pleated Woven Trousers (£165)

Iris & Ink Jaina Tote Bag (£110)

Marks and Spencer Leather Square Toe Slingback Shoes (£65)

2. ADD A CONTRASTING BELT

Style Notes: Don't feel restricted by the silhouette of your blazer. As Lydia proves, the boxy jacket looks just as great with a belt worn over the top.

SHOP THE LOOK:

ASOS Weekend Dad Suit Blazer (£55)

Anderson's Croc Finish Belt (£98)

Arket Bicycle Shorts (£35)

Weekday Pouch Bag (£45)

3. KEEP THINGS FRESH

Style Notes: As Aïda attests, a white blazer will help breathe new life into your darker wardrobe staples or your trusty denim.

SHOP THE LOOK:

& Other Stories Linen-Blend Blazer (£95)

H&M Cotton T-Shirt (£4)

Missoma Coterie Chain Bracelet (£125)

Totême Original Cropped Straight-Leg Jeans (£200)

4. DRESS IT UP

Style Notes: Wearing a blazer over a dress might not seem like a natural pairing, but if it looks half as chic on us as it does on Marissa, we think it's worth trying.

SHOP THE LOOK:

Arket Oversized Linen Blazer (£135)

Rixo Naomi Floral-Print Dress (£265)

Staud Shirley Mock Croc Bag (£290)

La Redoute Plaited Block Heel Sandals (£32)

5. BRIGHT AND BOLD

Style Notes: Checked blazers always make a comeback in the winter months but run the risk of feeling too dark come spring. Make like Jen and give them an instant lift with pastel or bright trousers.

SHOP THE LOOK:

Baum und Pferdgarten Blonda Blazer (£174)

Charles & Keith Turn-Lock Front Flap Bag (£55)

Dodo Bar Or Coco Trousers (£470)

& Other Stories Leather Heeled Ankle Boots (£120)

6. OFFSET FANCY PIECES

Style Notes: Satin skirts may feel like after-dark fodder, but with an oversize blazer, they create the ultimate high-low combination.

SHOP THE LOOK:

& Other Stories Single Breasted Sculptural Wide Shoulder Blazer (£135)

Arket Crew-Neck T-Shirt (£15)

Vince Slip Midi Skirt (£240)

Chloé Tess Small Leather Cross-Body Bag (£1360)

7. INVEST IN A SUIT

Style Notes: While not all blazers will come with matching trousers, if they do, we always recommend investing in the set as another foolproof and effortless outfit option.

SHOP THE LOOK:

H&M Oversized Blazer (£35)

Zizi Donohoe Chic Athletique T-Shirt (£60)

H&M Wide Twill Trousers (£13)

Simone Rocha Faux Pearl Hair Clip (£78)
