An unstructured cotton blazer is a fantastic addition to any semi-casual wardrobe during the summer. They are much more forgiving and the softer shape will allow you much more flexibility when it comes to how you style it. Due to the soft, flowing way they drape, it means you don’t have to do up your jacket in order to maintain your silhouette like you would a formal, structured version. This means you can create outfits with real depth that show off multiple layers underneath. When looking to create a sense of laid back sophistication, you want to avoid the stifling, rigid construction of traditional formal blazers and find something that gives off an air of nonchalance whilst retaining a tailored cut and clean lines. You’re aiming to suggest a whiff of formality without really showing that you care that much. In this look we’ve gone for a timeless cotton/linen blend jacket complimented with hints of blue. The bold color gives the look some punch, yet the contrasting blues reins it back in.
