Blazers were the 2017 trend that no one saw coming. After all, the tried-and-true wardrobe staple is the key to professional power dressing for so many women, so how could it be deemed “trendy”? But, in fact, we saw the staple jacket in checkered prints all over the street during fashion month, with countless iterations following suit. If you were just as on board with the fall blazer as we were you’ll fall in love with these blazer styles that will undoubtedly take center stage this year. Click through to discover which blazer styles we’re predicting to be huge in 2018.
Fashion girls are playing with color a lot more lately, and that very much includes the blazer. As we move into spring, a fresh palette of refreshing blues, pretty pinks and eclectic patterns awaits.
Rich fabrics like velvet and corduroy bring the jacket up a notch. Really feeling this blazer trend? Try pairing with matching trousers for a fresh take on the modern suit.
Corset-inspired shaping, extra-strong shoulders, and asymmetrical tailoring are all blazer styles you'll start to see popping up in the coming months (if you haven't already).
This is as classic as it gets. The traditional double-breasted blazer, especially adorned with gold vintage-inspired buttons or produced in a classic checkered pattern, gets a stylish upgrade. Offset its old-school feel by wearing with soft-feeling details like a floral skirt or statement earrings or embrace its classic shape by pairing with a plain turtleneck and polished jeans.
