The Classic Navy Blazer – Style With Everything

 

I feel that every woman should have a well-tailored classic blazer in their wardrobe (now I’m already wondering how many of you reading this have one or more than one in their wardrobe)

I say classic like it’s old fashioned but it’s clearly not. Take a look at any of the insta famous young girls out there and they are all wearing them along with fashionistas of any age group. It’s an item of clothing any woman can wear, whatever height, shape, or age.

 

 

I’m introducing you to the new Wren Blazer by my loved brand Baukjen. Be warned, you may see this one in my outfit posts even more than the Emin Pink Blazer you have seen here so often!. There’s also a special offer code for you my dear readers.

Getting back to talking about blazer trends, I find the classic cut just so much easier for me rather than wearing the overly sized box shape. I’m on the petite side, so a little waist emphasis is far more forgiving on my frame. Plus I think it gives off a far better silhouette.

 

 

 

The Wren Blazer, an easy choice knowing how much I have loved the Pink Emin blazer (on sale) The cut and quality is the best I’ve had in years. It’s the little details that count. Stitching, seams and hems etc. You know you are wearing something of good quality. The Gold buttons! So classic.

 

Buy a classic blazer and reap the rewards

 

 

This is my favourite day to day style. A pair of jeans, a T-shirt and slippers when I’m working at home but add shoes, some accessories and a good blazer and that stay at home for the day look is instantly transformed. It’s just so easy!

The blazer is such a hard worker. Wear it for work as smart separates. Wear with a maxi dress (I’ve already tried this blazer with a floral maxi dress and it looks great) or any length dress. The list is endless but I love the blazer most with jeans.

Anyway, enough about the blazer lets talk about denim…

 

 

The Wren Skinny Jean that hugs in all the right places. The skinny jean is my most worn, second best would have to be boot flare. I like that these jeans hug you very nicely yet do not feel restrictive in any way. True to size I would say (I’m wearing size 8) and no muffin top The waist height covers that! Just sitting in the right place.

 

Good quality denim with no muffin top!

 

 

The Wren Jeans are 95.4% cotton 4.6% Elastane. When I said about working from home in these, they really are that comfortable enough to sit about in. A great everyday pair of jeans.

I debated on wearing white accessories with the T-shirt but I love that classic denim and tan mix. The length of the jeans is a little long but I’m used to that and don’t mind a little ruching at the ankles.

 

 

I wanted to give the pockets a mention. A small detail that can make a huge difference in the fit of your jeans. Now, I’ve had my fair share of cheap jeans and something that riles me is how shallow the front pockets are.

Wear those jeans hugging the body and those pockets seem to spew out. Have you ever found that? The Wren jeans have really deep pockets and that has impressed me.

 

The Christina T-Shirt

 

 

I featured the Christina T-shirt a while back. I love the message. Be Kind. This is Baukjen’s charity T-shirt marking the anniversary for the Diana Award. 50% of net proceeds are donated to the Diana Award.

    Hi there,

    I loved your classic navy blazer. Your look is perfect! Thank you so much for sharing your styling ideas to the world. We can feel the sense of collaborating fashion, color, and an amazing interpretation. I think we can wear Pewter charms necklaces on all these casual wear to style us. What do you think?

    Thanks

    I absolutely love it! I love that you chose the tan bag with it as I think it gives such a warmth to the cool navy! And that jacket is so pretty! Currently, I have a pretty navy jacket with a floral print which I love but it gives a totally different vibe. I like this look, and may have to shop for a new navy jacket like this!

      Hi Amy. Glad you like it. A plain Navy blazer will never date. Buy the best tailoring you can afford xx

  15. June 2, 2019 / 12:47 pm

    Love the classic look, always have! It looks fantastic with the jeans. I’ll have to check out if I still have my navy blazer. When we moved I packed some of my classic clothes, some I gave away. I hope I kept it. You look great.

    Laurie,

    I love a classic blazer for summer. I just did a post with some women on how we wore our summer blazers with shorts!
    I do love how a blazer can be dressed up or down in the summer.
    Always fun to pop onto your blog and see your beautiful face!

    Hugs,

    You can’t beat a classical blazer, which can be dressed up or down and suits many styles. I have quite a few blazers in my wardrobe, some more classical than others 😉 xxx

    I just love how a blazer adds a little class to a white tee and denim look!! I have a black and a navy blazer and I don’t wear them enough! I really want a blush pink one, when I can find one that works! I love the gold buttons on your blazer and that fun tee!

    I thought a gold link belt low slung on one hip would bring the eye down and gentle shoulder pads in blouse. No dainty necklaces.

    The Blazer would work better with more classic cut jeans, instead of these ‘jegging looking ones’. Also ditch the 1970s belt, which is one-step beyond matching accessories.

      I dissagree I’m afraid Dawn. I like the skinny jeans for me. And I love my Tan accessories. The seventies are my favourite era.
