The simple and chic wardrobe fall-back never lets us down and is as apt for casual office wear as it is for weekend play and dressed up drinks too.
There’s nothing wrong with opting for a polished denim look over a flashy holiday dress (if the dress code permits, of course). But how, exactly, do you dress up your favourite pair of skinnies or distressed jeans? Easy – with the aid of a trusty blazer.
When it comes to fail-safe outfit formulas, you just can’t beat jeans and blazer for most occasions. Well, except for maybe weddings. It's a simple, chic wardrobe fall-back that never lets us down and we wear the easy combo at least twice weekly.
The fashionable formula is as apt for casual office wear as it is for weekend play and dressed up drinks too. Scroll down for some served up outfit inspiration and ready-made templates that you can copy from now until well, forever.
Classic ballet flats and a straw tote keep this blazer + jeans combo quite summery, but a layered maxi-coat and trainers would just as easily work for more of a Winter-friendly option.
