The Basics: A Blazer

I've been wanted to simplify my style for a while. Instead of sticking to one-season trend pieces, I've decided to invest more in classic, statement pieces that I can wear for season after season. Alongside the LBD, the white tee and the perfect jean, I added a black blazer to my list. I've wanted one for a while and think they can look great with both a pretty dress and a cool pair of jeans.

I was gifted this one from AX Paris and love it. It's very cool and casual, perfect for dressing down a glamorous dress, or keeping me warm with a pair of jeans. It's so comfortable and is a perfect transition piece for this weather.

I paired it with my A Wear jeans (which I've been wearing a bit too much lately, oh well), Priceless heels and a plain white tee, from Dorothy Perkins.

I really can't wait to wear this with a pretty dress on a night out, as it would be perfect. 

How would you wear a blazer?

I love your classic blazer. I find buying classic and individual pieces that will last for more than one season a much more cost effective way to shop.

I would wear a blazer with jeans and also a floral dress.

Oh, I have been on the hunt for a blazer as well; sadly, black doesn't really work for me and neither do grey or brown. I saw a splendid turquoise blazer that my mother vetoes against, so I'm still sans blazer.

The black looks great on you - and yes, blazers are super versatile and this one will definitely work over a dress for a night out!

Lovely blazer, but the coloured insoles of your shoes steal the look! And Harriet is so right... your hair is absolutely fabulous!

You look so pretty! I have a hard time finding a blazer I like. I want a simple, cotton blazer. For some reason, it's hard to find.
