The blazer: an item that (not so incidentally) accompanies you through pivotal life moments. From those boardroom presentations to evening events – all the while looking fabulous! Blazers for women are essential for those times where the ego could do with just a little boost. So when did it all start?

Wall Street, big hair, even bigger shoulder pads – an altogether big moment for women at work: the eighties encapsulated the art of power dressing. Maybe this was the beginning for ladies blazers? Yes, fashion has evened out the keel a little since those feisty red-nailed beginnings, but respect to that fabulous corporate ambition and the attire that came with it. Back then a white blazer or indeed a red blazer (worn of course with matching mini designer pencil skirts) was the kick needed to harness a natural prowess in mergers and takeovers. 

The razzle-dazzle has been toned down considerably, but the power of a well-cut blazer, has, if anything, increased in value. Has it run parallel with feminist progression? We like to think so. Designer tuxedo styles - a black blazer, white blazer or even a navy blazer with silk satin lapels that stop three inches above the belly button - have become yet another great symbol of femininity. A tuxedo suit can make you feel like a proud statuesque Helmut Newton model: a sexy but very much in control example of empowerment. 

Blazers, unlike a lot of their sartorial counterparts, are about the woman who wears them. They frame, accentuate and complement the beauty of a woman, without taking any attention away.  


You can't have all of this goal-kicking, hands-on-hips power standing, without the help of some refined tailoring. Stella McCartney, now famed for her tuxedo blazers and similarly super designer jumpsuits, tailors with a sound knowledge of women's bodies and their associated lifestyles. Stella just gets it.  

Whether it’s thrown over a little dress for days when you want to say, "See, I am fun" or worn with the ever-shaking designer boyfriend jeans combination for rebellious casual Fridays. If it’s thought out to the last detail, worn as a suit for an important event, or paired with a flippy skirt and designer ballerina flats for second date good game, Stella has you covered. Soft, yet structured, a quality that put Mr Giorgio Armani on the fashion map, is a solution to elegance with a ça m'est égal edge.  

A navy blue blazer worn with black (in the Prada dictionary under 'must do‘) is a brilliantly easy way to add edge to an otherwise classic look. Speaking of edge, Hedi Slimane and his gaggle of rock-chic muses inject a whole lot of fun into designer blazers. Embroidery, patterns, played-with proportions, like his killer cropped blazer, or soft textures like his wait-list inducing velvet blazers, are delectable additions to any wardrobe. Saint Laurent has certainly straddled the line between nine-to-five casual blazer and disco-ready style.  

Next up on the most-talked-about-list is Dolce & Gabbana, the grand dame of Sicilian sizzle. We are so consistently seduced, season after season, with their romantic take on black blazers for women. Ladylike charm or straight up provocative, the excitement level in the air here at Mytheresa is palpable at the beginning of each season. It’s a little like waiting for a summer holiday in Capri, but when it arrives, you never have to leave.  

The varied but classic blazer shape hasn't really changed, even if it has trend cycles. This season we have noticed more longer-length black blazers, a triumphant return of the cream blazer, and gold buttoned double-breasted blazers which, again, seems to be pointing in the direction of a full-circle power dressing comeback. Which would suit us just fine, after all, we understand a good investment when we see one.
