The trend for mid-weight jackets such as the humble shacket (that’s shirt meets jacket, for the uninitiated) is not going anywhere any time soon, so it comes as no surprise that the latest style to go viral sits within this outerwear category. & Other Stories’ wool blazer, which comes in a number of muted colours, has been spotted just about everywhere as of late, and we can absolutely see why.
Every woman needs a reliable blazer in her wardrobe, and this one is one of the the best around right now, thanks to its slightly heavier fabric and perfect cut.
The World Blend Oversized Blazer is made from 75 per cent wool, and so can act as an outside jacket as well as a blazer to throw on top of jeans and a tee, or a dress while inside. When layered with knitwear underneath, it serves as the perfect early spring jacket, keeping you warm but not weighing you down too much while on your morning commute.
The design comes in an impressive seven shades, all of which are fairly neutral and totally wearable. There’s an understated black version, along with several nudes and beiges, a couple of different browns, and an deep green.
The cut is also something to write home about, as it’s slightly oversized and longline.
Influencers such as Hannah Crosskey are loving the style, which goes with just about everything. You could pair it with a roll neck or a t-shirt and jeans, or throw it over a floral dress or silk midi skirt. The options really are endless.
The bad news is that unsurprisingly, the blazer is flying off the shelves thanks to its style and versatility. Out of the seven shades in comes in, four have already sold out online. It is still available in black, light beige, and green, however, but we recommend placing your order for the others sooner rather than later.
It’s always worth checking & Other Stories stores too, and checking back online, as they often re-stock their bestsellers. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for you!
