Blazers do all the hard work for you
We’re going to let you in on a little secret. The must-have item for this season is a blazer. Shop Portmans selection of blazers for both work and play and we’ll talk you through all the inventive ways we’re styling this wardrobe workhorse. From blazers, capes, vests and more you’ll ooze effortless polish all day (and night) long.
Whatever your dress code for the office entails, a blazer or a suit jacket is a must-have. For a business casual office environment, elevate your jeans by pairing them with a structured blazer and square toe mules. Want to let your creative spirit shine within the confines of a dress code? Wear a monochrome outfit and let your bright patterned socks do the talking. Need more warmth for winter? Simply layer with a trench coat and chunky knit scarf. Perfection!
A floral midi dress is the ultimate friend of a blazer. Opt for vibrant colours and patterns to contrast the tailored silhouette of a blazer or consider a lightweight fabric such as linen for those warmer months. It’s not surprising the fashion girls love plaid blazers. This vintage-inspired trend pairs perfectly with a graphic tee and pleated midi skirt. Date night and baby shower approved!
There’s something about the appeal of structured shoulders that assures us we’re in control of our lives. It could be the girl boss vibes, but a good suit is always a sound investment. No longer just for the men, women are investing in suiting for sleek sophistication. Mix and match your blazers and pants back with everything else you own and you’ll never have ‘nothing to wear’. You’ll power through your next meeting, but also be able to wear it with jeans on a lazy lunch date.
Draping a blazer over your shoulders is a trend we’ve seen blow up this season so it’s no surprise another option for seriously chic outerwear is a cape. A hero for dressy events when you’re worried about the chill, a cape is the perfect companion for over a dress at a friend’s wedding or accompanying a blouse and suit pants for an elegant option for work.
