So Many Editors Want This High-Street Jacket (It Has the Perfect Fit)

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 be the blazer. As someone who has around five currently sitting in my wardrobe, I can attest to its versatility, timelessness and ease to style. 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 four cool colourways—two shades of beige, one black and one sage green—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 green 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, plus 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.

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.
