How To Wear This Seasons Blazer on a Budget

Despite what you may think the blazer still has its place as an important staple item this season. Blazers are all over the High Street in every colour from black to rust and in all shapes and sizes from boyfriend to cropped. 

There is however no reason to run out and buy one! For those of you that have a blazer tucked away in the back of your wadrobe, think about reworking it, rolling up the sleeves or changing its colour. I recently dyed an old cream linen jacket to a deep rust/terracotta colour and rolled up its sleeves. It's given it a whole new lease of life. Also try hunting around your local charity shops for a blazer you can restyle at a fraction of the cost, even a plain black one can be worn with all this seasons hottest looks.

Here are some ideas using both High Street and Vintage.
