No pants, no problem! The blazer dress has struck the scene again, and it’s showing us exactly why it’s a look we have to keep on our radar.

Cue Hannah Montana’s pop rock theme song — the blazer dress is the best of both worlds. It’s one of those timeless styles you really cannot go wrong with. For everyone who favours one-piece outfits over pairing a top with matching bottoms — because who really has time to do that all the time? — wearing a blazer as a dress introduces a refined formality you likely won’t channel as effortlessly with another style.

Not only have respected street stylists proved this is a trend to watch, but highly visible celebrities (with inarguable great taste) such as Bella Hadid and Elsa Hosk have also ditched those matching bottoms for this reworked menswear staple. From checkered exteriors to strong-shouldered silhouettes to slouchy hemlines, plenty of blazer dresses have emerged both on the runway and on the rack: and they’re certainly worth trying out.

You can go straight for the glam look by styling this dress with a pair of boots that are ankle, thigh-high, or mid-calf, whichever choice you make, you are bound to look like the fashionista you are.

Another way to up the ante for this look is by cinching your waist with a belt. You can go full Bella Hadid at the CFDA Fashion Awards with a thicker belt (which seems the favoured style for celebrities) or a keep it simple for a day-to-day ensemble with a thin one.

Oh, and of course, one last thing. We save the best for last: You never have to worry whether the look fits the season, because the blazer dress transcends all weather. Except for maybe the winter. Throw some pants on or something. It’s cold.

Now, for some inspo.
