The Party Pleasers
The post-Covid-era has been cherishing the luxury of dressing up. From trend aesthetics like the night luxe, that injects the spirit of high-octane dressing to the homecoming of highlighter hues and flavourful colours, dopamine dressing is a recommended trick by fashion nerds. And while you are hoping to pick a piece from your favourite Zara aisles, a blazer in its many delightful forms can rush in, to rescue a quick look. A boon from heaven for lazy dressers, a blazer is exactly what you need to put together an ensemble. Experimenting with patterns, fabric colours and even accessories, allow Deepika Padukone, Malaika Arora, Kiara Advani, and Kendall Jenner to inspire your next party look.
Who said blazers can never go beyond boardroom meetings? For times when you are hopping cafes to get your weekend brunch, or parading on the streets for on-the-go errands, a blazer can help you whip up a chic look with even a pair of pyjamas and jeans. Like Alia Bhatt, Zendaya and Hailey Bieber, do not shy away from picking a blazer for even a stroll in the city. Here, you can look out for charcoal, muted tones or settle for a plaid printed or traffic-stopping shade to allow your blazer to lead the look.
