The Blazer – where would we be without it? Utterly versatile, the blazer is both our go-to for that all important job interview and our ante-upper when we’re looking to dress up a pair of jeans. A good blazer really does carry serious fashion mileage, and that’s why we think it’s only right to invest in a good quality piece at the beginning of a new season to see us through all situations – from the office to the dancefloor!

The trends for SS12 are by no means subtle, so we’ll be looking to keep our tailoring neutral to offset and complete our outfits perfectly. Looking for something to throw over your Great Gatsby flapper dress? Look no further – the blazer is your friend. Plus, nothing complements a pastel more perfectly than a simple white blazer, and no doubt we’ll be needing a blazer to save our blushes for when we’re donning the SS12 pyjama trend too…

So, with that in mind, here are our three must have blazers for Spring/Summer 2012:


Michael Kors Long Sleeve Collection Blazer, £215, available from

French Connection Solo Crepe Jacket, £120, available from French Connection.

Reiss Jude Drawstring Blazer, Was £195, Now £97, available from Reiss.
