Blazer of Glory!

Ruched Sleeve Blazer, £22, New Look

Who doesn't like the blazer trend!? It suits every shape and size, looks great over a dress on a night out, over a silk top for work and over a punky Tee for Saturday shopping. Try a cream blazer with rolled-up sleeves for a take on Wham! and the 80s, or with fierce shoulders to channel a bit of Rihanna. My personal favourite are the ones with three-quarter length sleeves (or buy a long-sleeved beauty and roll them up yourself for a two-in-one blazer). Sleeves that finish at your waist are instantly slimming because they draw the eye to your narrowest point. What's not to love about that! I tend to go for basic colours - black, cream or grey - to keep it timeless, but there are some gorgeous nautical themed ones out there. Or go a bit preppy like Gossip Girl, with a shorter jacket and a brooch on the breast.
