One Perfect Arket Blazer Worn 5 Ways for Autumn

You’ve probably heard us banging on about Arket’s perfect Hopsack Blazer before. That’s because every editor on the Who What Wear team is, quite frankly, obsessed, and we’re not afraid to shout about it. And we aren’t the only ones who have fallen for the clean lines and boxy shape of this expensive-looking jacket—a whole host of fashionable faces have been spotted in this particular style over the last couple of years. That’s because, with its crisp yet oversized cut that could so easily pass for designer, it is hands down the best blazer on the high street. In fact, it’s one of the best blazers I’ve tried, full stop. And trust me—I’ve tried a lot.

The blazer as a wardrobe staple has well and truly passed trend status and become a full-fledged capsule hero piece. I now have upwards of eight in my collection (how many is too many?), and I’d go so far as to say they are the hardest-working items in my closet, so much so that I can’t remember what I wore before blazers were a thing. Answers on a postcard, please.

This specific Arket style comes in a few colourways from classics to bold brights, and more often than not, it’s sold out in a lot of them. I actually own both the camel and the black because I’m a big believer in investing when you find an item you love and wear time and time again. I probably wear mine most often with jeans and a white T-shirt, switching in heels, loafers or boots depending on the event. But to showcase just how versatile this blazer is, I’ve styled it up five different ways below, all perfect for the new autumn season ahead.

1. Blazer + Jeans + Shirt + Heeled Boots

I saw Kendall Jenner wear a similar look and was totally inspired to copy her minimalistic approach to blazer dressing. A special mention goes to these jeans, too, which are my absolute favourite.


2. Blazer + Tracksuit + Chunky Ankle Boots

Blazers can work for weekends, too, as this cosy, relaxed loungewear look proves. 


3. Blazer + Slip Dress + Belt + Knee-High Boots

Throwing a black blazer over a midi dress is a timeless trick for evening dressing. Add a belt for an instant modern update. 


4. Blazers + Jumper + Leggings + Chunky Knee-High Boots

There’s a reason blazer-and-legging outfits are so popular. The smartness of the jacket balances out the relaxed leggings for a comfy but chic go-to look. 


5. Blazer + Bright Top + Leather Wide-Leg Trousers

Switching out a white T-shirt with a bright alternative can freshen up a whole look. Add in wide-leg leather trousers, and you’ve got a polished outfit that could work for anything from the office to dinner and drinks.
