So Many Editors Want This Expensive-Looking High-Street Jacket

If there was a prize for the jacket trend that has been given the most airtime over the last two years, it would have to go to the blazer. As someone who has around five currently sitting in my wardrobe, I can attest to its versatility, timelessness and easiness. With its boxy fit and premium-feel fabric, my Arket wool blazer is a personal highlight, and it seems as though I am not alone in my love for this particular piece, as I've spotted it on countless fashionable faces on Instagram.

Coming in a handful of cool colourways—black, navy, beige, burgundy, chocolate brown and an unexpected shot of pink—this blazer has certainly earned its reputation for being a classic wardrobe staple. A popular styling hack is to add it to jeans and a tee, but I have also seen it worn with colour-match trousers for a polished suit finish. Mine is an old grey version from a few years ago, which I've worn every season without fail, but I have to say that the navy iteration has also caught my eye. I can imagine it adding interest to clean-lined separates. 

Throughout winter, I typically wear mine with roll-necks and jeans, then swap out knits for white tees come spring. I have also loved seeing how some fashion editors have styled theirs with shorts and fisherman sandals for the summer months. Scroll down to see the blazer and to shop other Arket jackets.

I shot the complete co-ord for a We Try Before You Buy story two years ago, and I haven't stopped thinking about the jacket.

Lorna cleverly invested in the blazer from my set, and I'm continuously impressed by how she styles it. My favourite iteration? Straight-leg jeans and trending chunky loafers.

Lizzie Hadfield is a big fan of the blazer and is often seen wearing hers with a white tee and straight-leg jeans. So chic.

As she has snapped up the brown iteration of the full-blown suit, follow Alexis's lead and wear yours with a black clutch bag to achieve her elegant but minimal aesthetic.

Jessica Skye recently wore her trusty blazer with a simple slip dress and sandals—a look that will work for everything from weddings to dinner dates.
