The trick to making it work for work is taking the blazer jacket out of its corporate comfort zone and turning it into a strikingly contemporary staple. Bright, contrasting colours, an alluring detail, a clashing print or a boxy silhouette, there are a number of ways to incorporate a timeless blazer jacket into a fashion-forward yet acceptable work outfit.
If a head-to-toe printed suit seems a bit too overwhelming, a two-piece in a statement colour is an equally powerful alternative. Wear a crisp shirt in a contrasting colour underneath for a genuinely confident business style. Depending on the occasion, you could always 'casualise' your office outfit by replacing the tailored trousers with a pair of high-waisted jeans. Slip on a pair of pointed booties to elongate the legs and balance out the look with a touch of femininity. In case you're meeting an acquainted business partner that won't be appalled by your vestimentary progressiveness, drop the serious act and add in your fluffiest pair of slippers.
