Have you ever been shopping and fallen in love with a wardrobe staple that you didn’t even know you were missing? Well, that was the case with this Ralph Lauren blazer.

I stumbled across this blazer last year whilst in Hawaii. Hidden in between the racks of other discounted clothes, the bright gold emblem was simple yet intricate and the navy velvet material felt so plush and cosy (the 65% off RRP didn’t hurt either!). Even though it was a size too big, I purchased it anyway with the hope that I’d get at least some wear out of it. Turns out the size and style is perfect for layering and achieving the notorious ‘man repeller’ look that I love so much. I’ve worn it for both work and leisure, but either way my favourite way to style it is with a simple white shirt to allow the blazer to shine. Here are two key looks that are currently on high rotation.

Look 1: Leisure

Ralph Lauren blazer, Sportsgirl shirt, Diesel Jogg Jeans, Chloe Susanna boots, Mimco necklace

Look 2: Work


Ralph Lauren blazer, Cos shirt, Portmans skirt, Jo Mercer boots
