Ladies’ blazers from Esprit – a stylish staple for any occasion
Staring into your wardrobe once again and no idea what you should wear? Then the best way to build your outfit is to start with a ladies’ blazer. A timeless staple that is a dream companion to any garment, whether dressed up for the office or dressed down for your café date. Let us show you what an Esprit ladies’ blazer can do, what models are available, and what to combine it with.
One blazer – a thousand looks
Hardly any other garment is as versatile as the blazer: the elegantly cut ladies’ jacket complements both casual weekend outfits and smart evening looks.
Your business buddy
You’ve got an important meeting coming up, and you want to appear confident and self-assured. A well-fitting ladies’ jersey blazer in muted colours such as black, grey or dark blue will always do the trick. Slightly fitted and cropped, it is the perfect partner for suit trousers, chinos or a pencil skirt.
Ladies’ blazer + jeans = smart-casual
The office is not the only place you can rely on this timeless classic; it can also be effortlessly combined with your favourite pair of jeans. Team an elegantly cut ladies’ blazer with boyfriend jeans, plus a casual printed t-shirt and sneakers, and your smart-casual weekend look is complete. Make it cosier with stylish cardigans – perfect for the cooler months.
The “final touch” for dresses and skirts
Ladies’ blazers offer the perfect alternative to jackets including for celebratory occasions. Whether at christenings, weddings or anniversary parties: top off your dress with a slim-fit piece. It will not only keep you warm but also add a touch of elegance to your dress. Another stunning look for special occasions is a skirt, knit jumper and blazer, ideally combined with full-length boots or elegant leather ankle boots.
Ladies’ blazers for any look – from casual to elegant
A ladies’ blazer suits any occasion: you just need to know how to wear it. Choose the appropriate cut according to your look:
- Short blazers: they reach to around the waist or the navel and are usually slim-fit. Perfect for wearing over your dress.
- Longline blazers: they usually reach beyond the hips to over the bottom and often have a wider fit. They evoke a sense of casual and timeless style, particularly if paired with culottes, and make the waist appear longer.
- Oversized blazers: knee-length with broad shoulders – emblematic of the “Dress for Success” attitude of the 1980s.
Blurring the line between casual and smart: the various fabrics and materials. For everyday wear with jeans, try a casual soft-jersey stretch blazer, a classic blazer with ribbed knitted cuffs, or add elegance to special occasions with linen and with pinstripes or houndstooth patterns.
What to wear under your blazer
There are numerous answers to the question of what you can wear under your ladies' blazer. A short blazer and a polo-neck jumper make for a harmonious duo. Wearing these tone-on-tone will ensure an especially smart look. A pretty and elegant alternative is to wear a lacy top or bodysuit underneath.
Ultra-casual variants include a ladies’ hooded jumper, preferably in combination with bootcut jeans. Your Esprit ladies’ blazer also works with midi dresses as well as classics such as blouses or t-shirts. Our tip: the more striking the jacket, the more subdued the clothing underneath it.
Perfect fit: How a ladies’ blazer should sit
Obviously, a ladies’ oversized blazer sits differently to the slim-fit variant. Nevertheless, a professional will notice straight away which model will fit which figure and which won’t. To ensure a good fit, you should note the following:
- The top seam on the sleeves should always end directly on the shoulder.
- The sleeves end around 1.5 cm above the base of the thumbs.
- When you fold your arms in front of your chest, the back seam must not become taut or cause the fabric to wrinkle.
- When the buttons are done up, the jacket should not be taut across the tummy or centre vent.
- The length depends on the blazer style. The only factor here is your personal taste.
Find the ladies’ blazer to suit you in the Esprit Online Shop with sleeve cuffs, with buttons or sleeve vents. Check our cut category in the product overview. We distinguish between “slim-fit”, “straight fit” and “regular”. This means you can see at a glance which model will suit your shape best.
Exciting colours. On-trend designs
Plain colours make for a classic ladies’ blazer. But how about trying a bold colour? A stretch blazer in a vibrant red, or a viscose blazer in electric blue? Be bold and go all out for colour. Light ladies’ jackets with contemporary checked patterns are bang on trend. Whether slim-fitted with matching checked trousers for a one-tone look or as a longline blazer teamed with a black pencil skirt – the choice is yours.
