Meet Your New Transitional Hero Piece: The Linen Blazer

Meet Your New Transitional Hero Piece: The Linen Blazer

My love for blazers goes back years. I'm the type of person who feels the cold easily, so cover ups of every kind have always found a loving home in my wardrobe, but blazers are a particular favourite, mostly due to their magical ability to transform the most basic of outfits into something polished and put together.

When I saw this slimline linen number from Zara, I instantly knew it was going to be the perfect transitional piece. At £69.99 it was something of a splurge, but well worth every penny. For one thing, it's beautiful quality, with a silky lining and a very flattering cut, relaxed and yet tailored at the same time. The linen fabric is light enough to feel appropriate for the end of the summer, but substantial enough to provide some protection on chillier evenings. As for the neutral beige colour, it fits perfectly into my wardrobe.

I can see myself taking this away with me on a late summer holiday, to pull on over gauzy dresses when the sun has gone down and the air gets a little cooler. It also works perfectly at home as day to day wear, taking my habitual uniform of jeans and t-shirts from scruffy to stylish in one simple step.

  1. I only ever wear blazers to work, for my cover up needs I grab a cardigan. Blazer means work for me, so I don´t want them around in my spare time!

  8. I was just rejoicing yesterday that I bought this dark linen blazer earlier this year! It's definitely perfect for transition as you said :) And the best thing about the blazers - they never go out of fashion! So it's worth to invest in them!
