If a blazer is your go-to cover-up, then don't fret, its appeal is showing no signs of waning for 2018. From parties to dates and everything in-between, a blazer has become a bit of a style staple in our wardrobes and we can't wait to update it for the new season ahead.
On the autumn/winter runways designers threw it back to the 90s with a myriad of power suits. Featuring double breasted cuts and shoulder pads, this time they came with a modern twist in the form of longer lengths and a more fluid silhouette.
Victoria Beckham, Calvin Klein, Stella McCartney and Ellery all put their spin on the trend, pairing them with silk shirts and white knits, which are ideal for office days. DKNY played with proportions, with wide shoulders, nipped waists and full length sleeves while Balenciaga also went XXL with supersized shapes. Meanwhile, Gucci played on nerd chic with brightly coloured lapel piping and floral embroidery.

For colder months, we're all about teaming a formal looking blazer with a hoodie for a play on the smart/casual dress code. Plus, it's super cosy on days when you don't want to have to lug around a heavy coat. Elsewhere, metallic and sequin versions have night out written all over them.
