The effortless nature of a blazer is not something that should be taken for granted, you only have to take a trip down memory lane to see that this classic wardrobe staple has been lending a helping hand to many since its immense popularity in the 80’s and it appears it will be going nowhere anytime soon. Queue the sigh of relief.  The importance of owning a blazer can be compared to your old reliable LBD, or your trustee pair of denims with them all sharing one major thing in common, versatility.  Needless to say, at least one of the following 12 blazers from our spend vs save edit should cater to all your needs. Keep scrolling to unveil the perfect fit for you.

Include a vertical striped jacket to your capsule. The long thin stripes will make you appear taller and thinner, If that doesn’t have you convinced nothing will.

For more of a dressier approach to the classic silhouette, opt for a belted blazer in a silky, floral fabric to optimise the kimono feel. Play it safe with Zara’s delicate rendition or be daring in Anna Rachele.

An oversized heritage check jacket is just the blazer you will need through this transitioning period. Either Vetements or Topshop will deliver a versatile staple whatever the budget.

Update your plain black go-to with a retro printed blazer. The Kooples feathered jacket adds a touch of quirkiness while Andrea Marques supports a geometric print.

Add a pinstripe blazer to cast a touch of sophistication to your look. Nothing says I mean business more than either of these classic staples.

Stand out with a geometric print or inject colour to a drab outfit.  Either Beatrice B or Delpozo’s vivid blazers should do the trick.
