I’m kicking off a new styling series called One Item 4 Ways where I take wardrobe staples and share with you four of the many ways they can be styled. I’m hoping these posts will inspire you to get more mileage out of the existing pieces in your wardrobe, help you fill in any gaps that may exist and inspire you to try out an item that you may have been contemplating for some time. Whatever it is you choose to draw from these posts, inspiration is what I’m here for!
If you haven’t gathered already, I’m a big repeater of items and outfits. I take a considered approach when adding pieces to my wardrobe to ensure my purchases stand the test of time and that I’m getting the most bang for buck out of my pieces. Part of this approach stems from preventing any unnecessary frivolous purchasing and keeps me on the straight and narrow with my clothing budget. I talk generally budgets in this post where I outline the style goals I set myself for the year but I am aiming to do a more comprehensive post about budgeting for your wardrobe in the not too distant future.
To get this One Item 4 Ways party started, I’m showcasing the ways that you can style a light neutral coloured blazer. My oatmeal linen-blend blazer has easily been one of my WFH favourites (yes… I play favourites) and is tailored to a double-breasted silhouette. I picked it up from Reiss earlier in the year and had the sleeves taken up by my tailor a few weeks before the pandemic was declared. I initially picked up the blazer with Casual Friday in mind, but given how working from home has relaxed our dress codes, it has been put to good use during these months stationed at home.
Take a look at all the ways that I’ve styled my oatmeal blazer (which, I should add, is currently on sale!)

I hope you enjoyed my first post of this styling series and that you were able to draw inspiration to style a light neutral coloured blazer or a similar lighter hued jacket in your existing collection.
