Model and body advocate Emily Ratajkowski recently revealed that she got married in a yellow Zara pant suit that was just under $200 USD. When fans settled from the shock, the attention turned to her mustard yellow ensemble that included a belted blazer and flared trousers. The look inspired the fashion community to revisit the power suit that entrepreneurs and business creatives live in. The key to the look is of course a blazer that can be paired with a variety of pants and of course, your favorite kicks.
We’ve rounded up three blazers from our favorite brands that are worth investing in for that signature woman-in-charge profile.
Alexander Wang Hook-And-Eye Elongated Blazer Dress
Alexander Wang‘s badass blazer dress is a marriage between conservative and feminine. The tailored piece extends to the mid-thigh and is cinched together with an edgy hook-and-eye clasp. This piece can be worn with fitted black denim or even bare with Vetements heels to pair. Punchy glasses like the Gentle Monster frames recently teased at Wang’s Fall/Winter 2018 show would would help assert your power.
Balmain Tweed Six-Button Blazer
You may not be a bride but there’s something about white that is too good to resist. We see Balmain‘s tweed blazer in a rich “Ivory” hue that is sure to standout in a crowd. The French label’s tailoring is almost perfect on the slender panels that we see adorned with its signature gold buttons. This item is for certain occasions in which you need your presence to be known instantly and respected. A clean pair of Nike Air Force 1s adds a casual touch to the garment.
Off-White™ Double-Breasted Jacket
Virgil Abloh has an uncanny affinity for womenswear design and it has shown in his most recent releases. Off-White™‘s new double-breasted blazer coat is both sleek and stately. Padded shoulders add a squared-off shape complementing the textured lapel. A front chain detail adds a military vibe that proves you are not to be messed with. The best option for footwear with this piece would definitely be the “FOR WALKING” stiletto heels in black.
