Be A Boss Bitch With These 10 Streetwear-Ready Blazers
Blaze a style trail.
As Bella Hadid proved on her way to the Heron Preston Fall/Winter 2018 show (see below), blazers can be streetwear AF, when done right. The key is to take the blazer out of the formal wear context: wearing it oversized as if it were a dress, using that deep V to flash a bit of cleavage, layering it up with a hoodie, or pairing it with some Matrix-esque shades and a statement sneaker. It's pretty much as sexy as day wear gets, as if you stole your Tinder date's jacket to cover up last night's scant just enough that you don't cause any car crashes on the way home. Safety first.

Max Mara Piombo Jacket
It may be concrete-gray but it's anything but drab. We know we're all baggy tees and hoodies but the figure-enhancing silhouette of this blazer is actually really beautiful, combined with the stitch detailing at the lapels and those two firing-for-effect extra buttons at the chest.

An ode to the glamorous starlets of yesteryear, this animal-print faux-fur blazer will add some fierceness to your outfit.

Stella McCartney Wellesley Pinstriped Wool Blazer
As demonstrated by Moschino's Fall/Winter 2018 collection, pinstripes are gonna be big big big. We love the large lapels, crossover shape and the – again, totally useless – buttons.
