For SS22, the runways were awash with oversized blazers and tailoring, from Stella McCartney’s bold saturated colour suiting and Valentino’s crisp minimal white tailoring to Prada’s leather take on the trend. Whether you’re looking for chic neutrals, classic black, checks or a pop of colour, the high street has a great choice. For an everyday oversized blazer in a beige, try Arket (£135). M&S’s versatile, black, single-breasted blazer (£39.50) can be worn for evenings out over an LBD or jumpsuit. Or pick up a Celine-inspired houndstooth at Mango (£79.99) or Massimo Dutti’s version (3, below)
Follow Maggie Gyllenhaal’s lead and choose a neutral tone, such as Asos’s charcoal blazer (£52). River Island’s buff style (£65) works perfectly with a cosy knit and leather trousers, or go head-to-toe in faux leather with H&M’s blazer and matching trousers (4, below), à la Bella Hadid. Style hack: search the men’s section of charity or vintage shops for an oversized fit.
If you are more of a fan of bold colour, then this is your season. Maje’s pink, loose-fitting jacket (£399) will instantly brighten your wardrobe. Style with a simple white T-shirt and trainers. & Other Stories’ vibrant orange corduroy jacket (£120) is a really versatile piece: switch it up and pair with a knitted dress or skirt instead. Jigsaw’s vivid lime leopard-print option (£230) is a show-stopper. Team with this season’s mini skirt or trade in your skinny jeans for wide-leg trousers with a high waist: ideal with an oversized jacket and a fitted top. Style up your look with some simple jewellery.
