Once considered smart but stuffy, the humble blazer – versatile, affordable and easy to wear – now fills the role previously held by blackout shades and Louboutin pumps
The hottest look on Instagram is no longer a bra-digan (sorry, Katie Holmes); it is a blazer. That’s right – a sensible, grownup, seasonally appropriate and useful jacket. Strange, but true.
There is a new breed of style selfie getting major likes. The setting will be an urban street scene: photogenic, but not glamorous. Waiting for the lights to change to cross a cobbled street, say, rather than in a fancy hotel room. The props and pose will be carefully chosen to semaphore busyness and curated realness: a reusable coffee cup or possibly an umbrella in one hand; the other hand oh-so-casually in a pocket.
