The term "blazer" was coined in 1825 and back then was thought of as a more casual alternative to coats. Centuries later, the blazer is ever-evolving, serving as a symbol of empowerment for women. Once seen only in office settings, blazers have become versatile pieces. Today, blazers have taken the fashion industry by storm, establishing their status as "anti-trend" wardrobe essentials.

Styled with a classic white T-shirt and denim or belted over a knit dress, blazers add immediate polish to any look. This season, the basic blazer received an update. Flooding both the runways and the streets, oversize blazers are the hot ticket. From traditional tartan and fine leathers to cropped and elongated silhouettes, there is a myriad of oversize blazers to indulge in.

Ahead, discover the 24 we have our eyes on this season.

It's impossible to go wrong with a neutral blazer. In fact, my light-beige blazer is easily the favorite in my wardrobe. (Yes, I play favorites.) Layer a chunky knit under or pair with shorts—after all, a solid neutral is seasonless.
