Tom Ford is the catalyst behind the latest phenomenon that is the patterned blazer. Mr. Ford showed bold and daring prints in both his men and women’s collections in 201o and 11 consecutively. Now the style is flowing into the fast fashion stream.
The challenge with bedazzling a classic piece like a blazer is that often the results seem too trendy; much better suited if you were auditioning to host Dancing with the Stars or an evening of televised co-hosting with Graham Norton. Yet every now and then, you’ll find this treatment in just the right amount of vitality and glamour, updating your look, bringing forth texture and visual interest to your ensemble.
Topman nailed it with this Black Jacquard Skinny Blazer retailing for $248.
