Old English school blazer

For his latest winter collection, Ghesquière retrieved the old English school blazers. More recently, different fashion weeks (specially New York) proclaimed the long jacket as one of the biggest trends for next spring.

My personal choice is the classic navy blazer with gold buttons, long enough to cover the hips. Ashley Olsen, always ahead of trends, was seen with one in 2004. And now, Vogue Paris stylist Geraldine Saglio and Alexa Chung can't stop wearing theirs. The key is to keep the rest of the outfit young and fresh considering the seriousness of the blazer. Try with high-waisted jeans, simple white tees or plaid shirts. Ralph Lauren kids is an easy and affordable option.

I like how the lady on the left (Geraldine Saglio?) wears her blazer with high waisted jeans and clutch!

My favourite is the one on the left. I think Miss Saglio makes effortless a very worked outfit.

I really love that trend! But it's still winter in Paris so we have to wait to wear the blazer! :)

I love the way Ashley wears hers, and to think that she wore that about 4 years ago ! She is a true trendsetter.
And I love everything Alexa wears..I really need to get a nice blazer. Great post <3
