Blazer...Vintage or Nouveau?
In a category of good buys in mid season, blazer surely is item that girl has to have in mind for in a minute chic when temperature is just right for overlay. With all the girl meets boy trends, market was overwhelmed with blazers a la boyish so lot of buying was in game. If you have room for just one blazer you might fall for these loosen blazers in terracotta, orange or rust tones. With strong 70s vibe it’s just dresses kisser, brilliant is on maxi dress (remember the SATC movie 2 and Carrie Abu Dhabi romance with terracotta blazer), but also on simple black pants or LBD.
Strongly recommend the vintage hunting- the one at the photo is a bit pricey pick from Louis Feraud, French couturier that aside from couture was also creating prêt-a-porter collections. Jacket might be from the mid 70s when his silhouette style softened with the spirit of the era. Topshop also has a great offer- bit longer blazer in rust tone so whether vintage or new its up to you.
