We all get that manic Monday feeling of what to wear in the morning, but with the weather remaining pretty dull and damp, the past few months have been relatively easy to dress for.

But wait, is that the sun breaking through the clouds? We guess it’s time for an outfit overhaul, and with only five minutes before you leave the house, there’s only one item that can save the day.

Blazers are a staple in every working girl’s wardrobe and are great for this in-between weather. This Elizabeth and James contrast collar blazer is perfect for that what do I wear? moment, working as well with a floaty summer dress as it does with a pair of chinos.

The navy and white colouring is a contemporary take on nautical, but there’s no denying that this blazer is a timeless classic.

Team it with a colourful blouse and neutral trousers for the office or a floral summer dress for the daytime to avoid people shouting ‘Ahoy there!’ in the street – this classic jacket is a must-have for spring.
