This Arket oversized blazer has become every fashion editor’s fave

The humble blazer is a wardrobe essential for this time of year, especially given how unpredictable the weather has been lately. You can throw it on over just about any outfit, whether that’s a cute summer dress and trainers, some jeans and a tee or with matching coloured trousers as part of a two-piece suit. Come rain or shine (and there have been a lot of both lately), the blazer has your back — and some of the top fashion editors have found their new fave.

Who What Wear’s Joy Montgomery, for example is a huge advocate for Arket’s gorgeous oversized style, which comes in three hues and has been spotted on the shoulders of the coolest Instagram ladies like Aïda Badji Sané. The £135 style is the ultimate investment that will see you through years of different weather and occasions, becoming one of your most worn styles.

‘Featuring an oversized fit, this one-button blazer is made of premium, RWS certified wool,’ the brand says. ‘Woven by an Italian mill, the fabric has a hopsack construction – a loose basket weave with a subtle geometric texture that makes the garment durable and airy, naturally resistant to wrinkling. The blazer is detailed with a chest pocket, two jetted pockets with flaps and a single vent at the back.’

As mentioned, the Arket oversized blazer comes in three shades: dark blue, black and camel. However, sadly the camel is currently sold out online, but it’s worth checking back regularly for a re-stock, or looking in your local store.

This divine style really is one of the most versatile pieces of outerwear you could ever invest in; all three colours of the Arket oversized blazer go with everything, the cut is timeless, ultra flattering and easy to pull off, and the material will see you through those transitional moments when the weather doesn’t quite know what it’s doing.
