Building a Sustainable Wardrobe: The Blazer

A blazer is a wardrobe essential. It can be thrown over any look and complement the outfit perfectly. I will always encourage anyone to thrift a blazer before buying a brand new one as there are so many great options on the second-hand market. But, if you’re on the hunt for a specific silhouette, color, or design you’ve come to the right place. 

If you’re new to this series “Building a Sustainable Wardrobe”, welcome. This series highlights key styles that can be included in a transeasonal, neutral, “capsule” style wardrobe. So far we’ve covered; cable knit sweaters, wool coats, tailored trousers, and cardigans

Keep scrolling and meet the blazers I believe could be a possible next addition to your wardrobe.
