as it's starting to get slightly warmer out there and my big winter coat seems a bit dramatic, i've been looking for a nice summery blazer for those days when you need a lightweight smart jacket thats not too heavy and bulky but protects from the english winds. here's some items I came across...


new look-draped pocket blazer-£22.99
i love the unusual mint green colour of this blazer and what a bargain price. i like the cute sleeve gathering details and the fact it doesn't have a fastening doesn't bother me as i don't usually fasten jackets like this anyway, however i do prefer my blazers to be slightly longer in length and have full length sleeves so i can choose whether to roll up or not, but this is a really sweet design for summer. it comes in 6 different colours for every outfit.


zara-jersey blazer-£49.99
this may be my favourite blazer of the 3. it looks so classy and smart, yet the sugary colour palette adds a fun and playful edge. i think the contrasting lining adds subtle detail when the cuffs are turned up or can be hidden, the length and style are perfect for me. it's not too expensive but would definitely be something i would look after and wear each year. i think it's worth spending a few extra pennies on.


harveynichols-vince-soft leather blazer-£870
now this isn't really my style but i thought i'd include something from the high end market. it colour fits in perfectly with this years s/s pastel trends. but to me i don't think i would find the leather very comfortable and easy to wear. the lengths a little short for me but you are getting quality here with soft leather and satin lining, it's definitely an investment piece. i can imagine it's like heaven to touch, feel the expense!

overall i think i've fallen in love with the zara blazer at £49.99. perfect!


  1. I was looking at the Zara blazer today, and I was shocked that the quality wasn't that good for the price :( Missguided have some fab coloured blazers in online xx
