It’s the best thing since sliced bread. Scratch that. It’s better. MUCH better. Black blazers are the best thing.
STYLING BLACK BLAZERS
If we scroll back to 2014, I was strolling around in a vintage black blazer almost every day. The proof is here in this blog post. I still have that same blazer but to be honest I just can’t part with it, though I know I should. Literally worn to death, it has split at the seams and looks less than fresh. It took me years to find the perfect replacement. And a bit of trial and error too. In the end, I settled for the one from Anine Bing I am wearing in these pictures.
Over on my IGTV tonight I’ll be sharing a styling video wearing this same black blazer. I really thought it was a video I’d already made but surprisingly I’d overlooked that topic. It’s funny how something can be right in front of you and you somehow don’t see it!

WEAR IT WITH SLOUCH JEANS AND HEELS
I love wearing my slouch jeans with a blazer, this is sorta my favourite look at the moment. It takes what I love about a mom or high waisted jean and adds a little extra volume. This pair are from Mango, and yes, the one leg is cuffed while the other isn’t. We didn’t notice until after we were done taking these photos and I’d climbed back into the car. So you can literally wear them cuffed or down, but I’d generally suggest one or the other, not both. :) I paired them with my braided heels, also from Mango for a sleek look. I go into further detail about both the jeans and heels in my Mango haul video. Spoiler alert, I love both!

So, what do you think of the humble black blazer? Are you into them? Do you wear them all the time too? I’m a bit curious because I feel like I reach for them all the time and should have gotten sick of them by now. Let me know below!
