This Marni Plaid Ribbed Cotton Blend and Twill Blazer could have come at no better time, because only last week we brought you our guide to wearing statement blazers successfully this season.
Within our detailed write-up, we broke down the 3 different types of statement blazer currently available on the market – including checked, striped and block coloured blazers. This striking blazer fits into the former category perfectly.
Guaranteeing that you will stand out from the crowd, this plaid blazer’s innovative design has been developed using a mixed media theme, whereby the construction of the garment has been created by combining a number of different fabrics and textures. Predominantly crafted from navy, red and sand coloured plaid twill, it is finished with a contrasting navy ribbed cotton-blend material to the back.
Aside from the unique material combination utilised for the main body, the theme has been carried on to the design of the front patch pockets, with 2 out of the three pockets having been constructed from yet another fabric.
As this striking garment will undoubtedly become the focal point of your ensemble, try and keep the rest of your outfit simple and understated – picking out one of the colours with your surrounding piece or pairing with shorts for a casual take on the preppy aesthetic.
You can get your hands on one of these statement blazers over at Mr.Porter.
