Get back to business with the best blazers to shop now

Power dressing doesn’t always mean padded shoulders and pinstripes, as anyone who has felt the welcome surge of confidence that comes with buttoning up a blazer will attest. The blazer is one of those reach-for wardrobe essentials, promoted in recent seasons on the runway from corporate staple to a welcome addition to any ensemble.

Blazé Milano Chacco Kid Everyday checked wool blazer from Net-a-porter, Double-breasted satin and grain de poudre wool blazer from Saint Laurent, Jumbo GG canvas blazer from Gucci.
Acne Studios Double Breasted Suit Jacket from Workshop, V04 Fitted Jacket from Dior, Mae Blazer from Camilla and Marc.

For those wishing to tap into the androgynous energy encompassing luxury fashion houses, boxy silhouettes and single button styles offer a tailored cocoon that adds instant impact on top of denim and leggings, while single button cuts balance out the feminine frippery of pleated maxi skirts and printed tea dresses.

Harris Blazer from Harris Tapper, Hourglass Tuxedo Jacket from Balenciaga, Double-breasted wool blazer from Alexander McQueen.
Double-breasted pinstriped wool blazer from Saint Laurent, Christopher Esber Redux Blazer from Muse, Blanca Vita single-breasted tailored blazer from Farfetch.

There’s also a more seductive silhouette on offer, with blazers nipped at the waist with elongated sleeves playing with hourglass proportions. Worn with a prim blouse, satin camisole or even a statement bra, these blazers mean business.

Caitlin Crisp Marjorie Linen Blazer from Muse, Double-breasted mohair blazer from Louis Vuitton, The Garment Chicago Blazer from Workshop.
