There was a time where a blazer was either part of a school uniform, or a formal finish for corporate workwear. But time have changed and the humble (and not so humble) blazer has weaselled its way into your wardrobes, and our hearts. And for good reason…
They can be paired with almost anything and are an easy, effortless way to give an outfit a dressed-up vibe or chic edge, and they’ll never go out of fashion so you know you’ll get good cost-per-wear from your new garment.
Plus, they’re an easy way to dress up a t-shirt and a scruffy bun when you suddenly have to jump on a Zoom meeting.
And though most people opt for a black linen blazer — and we totally understand why — we’ve found a beige version that is sure to have you leaving the darker staple colourway behind.
You might have heard about, seen or even tried to get your hands on the Oversized Wool Blazer from &Other Stories back in 2019 and 2020, and if so, you’ll already know that the super-chic piece became a cult favourite — and then a sell-out — in record time across both years.
Meaning that if you dawdled about the purchase or thought you’d mull over it for a few weeks and try on some other options in the meantime, you likely missed out.
Fear not though, the stylish blazer is back — and available in both beige and khaki — though for how long, no one knows!
Available in sizes 32 to 44, the woven blazer created an oversized silhouette, though can be pulled in using the duo button closures to give a more fitted look.
The beige colourway is still available in all sizes (run, don’t walk!), but the khaki is already sold out in sizes 34 and 36, and is low in stock across other sizes.
Beyond work-from-home wear though, the blazer gives an on-trend edge to a casual white denim look with ankle boots, or — our personal favourite — can be thrown over a simple silk slip with a pair of black tights.
It’s a classic piece that will last you for years to come and seems set to be a sell-out for the high street retailer for years to come.
And, you probably don’t need us to tell you by now, but, if you want it… move fast!
