The Blazer Edit

4th October 2013 | Posted in Menswear

The blazer is often mistaken for a style element reserved for the over stylish, or the guy who can't quite let go of his suit over the weekend- but nothing could be further from the truth.

Now an out and out essential for any man's wardrobe, the blazer jacket shouldn't be reserved purely for the smartest of occasions. Take a look at some of our favourite blazer looks, covering everything from some seriously slick evening wear, right through to the most casual of chuck on looks.

Casually tailored

It's time to smash some perceptions of tailored blazers with this dressed down look, using some pieces taken from sister site Masdings.com. Started off with a stylish check from the Gant NY Madison Poplin Shirt at Masdings.com, a firmly preppy based style is laid down, using the perfect colours for the coming season- burgundy and navy.

Layered up with the Franklin & Marshall Embroidered Red Wine Logo Crew Sweat at Masdings.com, this look takes on a preppy collegiate jersey look. If you're feeling daring, try linking a club tie with a skinny knot to add a real preppy feel.

Finally, this Farah Sterling Dark Indigo Blazer at Masdings.com carries on the laid back feel thanks to it's lightweight unlined construction. This is one of those super handy "do what you like with it" pieces. It looks great dressed down here, or, link it up with a formal shirt for a smarter look.

Country Tweed

Sometimes, there's nothing wrong with a stereotype- especially if it looks this good.

We start off with this Pretty Green Burgundy Small Penny Collar Shirt at Masdings.com, which gives a trendy collar shape in this season's most wanted colour.

Layered over it is the Ralph Lauren Shawl Collar Jumper, a classic style with some traditional Ralph Lauren style, it's the perfect piece of knitwear for layering up against colder weather.

Finished off with the Scotch & Soda Tweedy Wool Blazer, which gives this look a heavy dose of classic country attire. With it's thick woolen finish and pocket square details, it's deep colour makes it perfect for dressing up your casual denims this winter.

Shades of Grey

Yes that's right- shades of grey, but not quite 50; you won't find a set of handcuffs tucked away on the inside of this Scotch and Soda Wool Grey Tweedy Blazer.

Layered up with the Anerkjendt Matti Grey Shirt at masdings.com, this look has a distinct look, and maybe isn't for the faint of hear, but it's bang on trend with a heavily patterned shirt and contrasting woolen blazer.

The king of layering

Layering up with some well chosen colours and styles can give a great well dressed image, that shows you've paid attention to the details.

This outfit does just that, using a Lyle and Scott Woven Shirt at Masdings.com to make a classic base with it's light stripe detail.

Adding a splash of colour, this Scotch and Soda Lambswool Cardigan gives an on trend shade of burgundy. This pocket cardigan gives a classic sartorial look, referencing throw back to the waist coats gentleman would traditionally wear with a blazer jacket.

Finishing the look off, the Tommy Hilfiger Cuypers Navy Blazer at Masdings.com brings about all the elegance of proper tailoring, to a toned down more casual look. The navy colour ties in perfectly with stripe of the shirt, and works in harmony with the burgundy cardigan to create an eye catching blend.

The Velvet Gent

A look that offers some serious style points, this outfit will give you a one way ticket to gentlemanly elegance.

Kicked off with a true piece of tailoring heritage, this Bellfield Roll neck jumper at Masdings.com is a great way to add some extra warmth without creating bulk under the blazer. The colour is a great contrast when put underneath the Scotch and Soda Velvet blazer, which is finished in one of the most luxurious fabrics going.

If you feel like making a special effort, or need to stand out in the crowd, then this look is the one for you.
