Luxe To Less: Diversify Your Classic Black Blazer

Chances are you most definitely have a classic black blazer sitting in the deepest, darkest corner of your wardrobe. Now's the time to dust it off and put it in its rightful place: front and centre.

From formal to casual and events in between, and at a price point to suit everyone, we have all the tips on the best way to make use of the iconic statement piece that is a blazer.

Luxe: Dress to Impress

When it comes to dressing the part, it is near impossible to overlook the Dolce and Gabbana logo embroidered, twill blazer for peak sophistication. A symbol of old-world elegance, this blazer is a true investment into a forever timeless style.

If you’re spending the big bucks on a blazer, then chances are you also don’t want to risk an unexpected downpour of rain ruining your outfit.

With the weather being so unpredictable as of late, invest in an original rubber trench coat from Kassl Editions to layer over your high-end blazer. Proving functionality and style go hand in hand, the red ochre shade adds a pop of colour to help bring this outfit to life.

Pair with the Jil Sander tapered-leg trousers and roll-neck long-sleeved shirt and some R.M William Chelsea boots for a minimalistic look that is all things class. Exuding winter styling at its peak for years to come.

Complete the look with a black Paul Hewitt watch with rose gold detailing, an accessory reserved for those special occasions life has to offer.

Less: Neat Casual

Is there anything more hated than an illusive “neat casual” dress code? Well, to save you the trouble of rocking up to your next event looking overdressed or underdressed we have compiled a look that may just be the definition of neat casual.

To avoid the look of a traditional, formal blazer, Everlane have put their thinking caps together and designed the Italian Wool Suit Jacket. The perfect mix of casual and formal, this blazer continues to prove its deserving place in your wardrobe.

For a casual but smart approach, combine with a pair of vintage cut NEUW Ray Straight jeans and an Acne Studios’ pastel printed striped T-Shirt. To create a layered look, that helps break up the dark and light shades, pair with a khaki Staple Superior Cord long-sleeved shirt.

In keeping with the vintage and blazer theme, finish the look with a pair of Nike Blazer Mid ’77 Vintage sneakers and ribbed cashmere socks. Proving that while the blazer is here to stay, sneakers and jeans have a rightful place too.

NEUW Ray Straight Jeans, $179.95, The Iconic
Acne Studios Face-logo Striped Cotton-blend Jersey T-shirt, $250, Matches Fashion

Low: Casual

Undeniably this year has been one of ups and downs, full of many unexpected orders to stay indoors. With budgets being lower, events being non-existent and meetings being online, it is no wonder sweats have become a go-to look.

With this in mind we are taking our lower budget to the realm of comfort streetwear and necessary couch wear.

For a blazer that still shows you mean business without having to break the bank, the DOM Slim Suit Jacket is not only exclusive to The Iconic but knows the foundations of dressing the part.

Because an online meeting at home isn’t worth the trouble of donning a full penguin suit, the beige nYATH Classic Crew and Trackpants are the perfect matching set to take away the stress of styling. Simply layer a blazer on top and you have a look for all your daily errands.

For a classic late-to-brunch look add some Adidas Originals, Topman Amsterdam embroidered socks and a pair of Quay dark tinted frames.
