In the midst of the UK’s current, seemingly never-ending heatwave, the last thing you probably want to be thinking about is jackets. But if you can manage to get past the current mercury levels and somehow start to look ahead to autumn, we’ve got the perfect fashion tip for you.
As a brand ambassador for New Look, Rochelle Humes has a habit of modelling the store’s best pieces shortly before they sell out (we imagine there’s some kind of correlation there). Her latest pick is a gorgeous tartan blazer that will set you back just £34.99, and we’re purchasing now before the rest of the nation gets there first.
Blazers have always been a transitional dressing staple – ideal for throwing on when it’s not quite coat weather, but still chilly enough to need an extra layer. Rochelle’s tartan twist adds a fun, casual vibe to the style – particularly when paired with a slogan tee tucked into high waisted jeans.
When New Look shared a snap of Rochelle in this exact outfit, followers were quick to add the item to their mental shopping lists for the season ahead. ‘Want this blazer!’ one exclaimed, while another tagged a friend and commented ‘saw this jacket and thought of you.’
The blazer is available now on the New Look website in sizes 6-18 (although some sizes are flagged as low in stock already). Reviewers who have already managed to snap one up were equally complimentary, giving an average of 4.7 stars.
‘Love this tartan blazer. Nice fit and feel,’ one applauded, and a second agreed: ‘Super cute blazer, will go with so much stuff! Bit pricey but I’d say it was worth it, as it seems very good quality.’
Oh, and if you really love Rochelle’s take? You can also get her t-shirt for a mere £8.99. Happy shopping!
