The pinstripe blazer

I absolutely love the warmer weather. It means the coats can be replaced with a blazer. A blazer can transform an entire outfit. If you pick one that fits well they are beautifully flattering. I find they give me shape by enhancing my shoulders and giving me a waist. I stand taller when I wear a blazer – and you can’t beat a striking pinstripe blazer when you need that extra pizzazz.

I own the first two here from Mango. They are amazing quality and in the sale. I am wearing the navy today – and it’s what I would call chalkstripe rather than pinstripe, and it has a pop up grey felt collar. It’s now just $47.99.

The grey is lovely – I don’t normally go for double breasted but I love wearing this one with black or grey jeans and this is now just $39.99.

I’m probably going to order this off-white jacket as it is perfect with blue jeans for spring and just $39.99 – reduced by 60%.

This grey blazer is reduced to $128 from $321 on Asos and I love the darker grey.

This is a beautiful alternative to a blazer from TopShop – I think this would look amazing with leather leggings.

Another from TopShop but I can only see it on the Nordstrom website here. I love the long lapels on it.

Now for the pricier versions. A blazer is always worth the investment for a fabulous cut and gorgeous fabric. This is TopShop Unique and lighter weight for the summer.

Finally I just love the styling of this blazer by Maje. Less structured than some of the others, again with more of a chalkstripe than pinstripe, and it’s just beautiful. It’s final sale right now.

So here I am in my Mango jacket. I subconsciously chose to wear it for a teacher conference today – the Husband asked if I was having school uniform flash backs!
