14 transitional blazers that are the perfect layering piece for in-between weather

by Erin Lindsay
12th Aug 2020

Searching for a cover-up that can be worn on any occasion? The iconic blazer is exactly what your transitional wardrobe needs

This weather can be a real drag on your outfit planning. One minute it’s sweat-central, the next, a stiff breeze is forcing you to layer up. A leather jacket can add to the humidity, while a hoodie can be a little too casual for some outfits. So what’s left to layer? The blazer.

A great blazer can be one of the hardest working items in your wardrobe at every time of year. Suitable to layer over summer dresses as well as autumnal knits, a blazer is appropriate for every occasion, and adds a touch of class to the most casual of get-ups. Simply put, they’re amazing, and you should consider investing before the winter hits.

There are so many to choose from on the high street at the moment, and we’ve included some high-end options for those in need (want) of some luxury. Go forth and layer – there’s a blazer for everyone.
