On those days that you just don’t know what to wear, throwing around clothes like the Grinch because nothing is looking the way you envisioned, there is one wardrobe essential that will always make you look put together.

The humble blazer.

A favourite of the fashion forward, the blazer has long been the go-to jacket to elevate and pull together an outfit.

They can work for any season with the changing up of colourways and materials; however, come autumn and winter they’re almost a daily staple.

The blazer has always been thought of as a piece to wear to the office – we envision being stuffed into an uncomfortable suit ahead of a big meeting – however over time, the blazer has changed to be one of the most versatile pieces to have in your wardrobe.

Pair with your work trousers and a pair of killer heels for a day at the office, throw over a slinky evening dress for an effortless layer on chilly nights out or pair with some jeans and a t-shirt à la Princess Kate.

Below, we are taking a look at our favourite blazers to shop at the moment, for autumn and winter and beyond, read on to find out favourites.
