    The humble blazer has for a long time been so much more than mere a workwear staple. Thanks to the street style stars and front row editors, the long-admired, versatile cover-up can easily be worn day or night, on or off-duty.

    And now thanks to the long-overdue warmer spring weather, it’s time to start thinking about updating your collection in order to nail trans-seasonal dressing.

    While structured tailoring is readily available, this season is all about loose, longline styles. Robe belts, pyjama-style piping and elaborate prints and colours played out on the runways and are now making their way direct to your SS16 wardrobe.

    While we’re lusting after styles luxed-up from Gucci and Etro, there’s also some seriously covetable high street versions coming in at less than £100 which also tick off the keys trends of the season. So you can bet there’s a blazer out there for you.

    Whether you wear yours with the matching trousers for anon-point loose-fitting suited look or go for a longline blazer in this season’s must-have blush hue and team with jeans, or go for a catwalk-approved printed blazer with colourful silk pants for an eclectic cocktail hour look – here are so many options and new styling ideas this season, you’re in for a sartorial treat.

    There are of course traditional blazers, navy and grey styles but to really refresh your wardrobe in time for the new season, we suggest you mix it up by opting for silk, prints or subtle drawstring ties.

    Until the weather gets warmer, layer your new trans-seasonal blazer over a roll neck jumper and then when spring and summer finally hit, layer your blazer over an on-trend cami or slip dress.
