Blazers always make quite an appearance on the runways no matter what season is at play which means we can’t really tell you blazers are trending since by now they are 100% a wardrobe basic, must-have, go-to, etc. Instead, we like to examine this timeless outerwear style to identify the nuances from season to season. So what’s in store this spring? The collarless blazer. We’re talking no lapels in sight. This detail, although subtle, somehow still feels very significant, so much so that we are deeming it the blazer trend to know this year.
This particular blazer style offers up great opportunities to show off a funky collar should you choose to layer a shirt underneath, a glitzy assortment of necklaces with no distractions from the lapel, and overall, I think the look is so chic. The lack of a collar creates such a streamlined silhouette that reads extremely elevated no matter how it’s styled. Ahead, you’ll get to take a peek at a few of my favorite collarless blazer moments from the S/S 21 runways, and, of course, will be able to shop my favorite versions of this trend along the way.
The peekaboo midriff moment makes this suit feel so fresh for spring. From the color to the addition of the sporty sunglasses, the forward styling of this skirt suit feels just right. Thanks to the sculptural shape of the sleeves, the lack of a lapel, in this case, reads particularly architectural. The tailored separates at Louis Vuitton this season were quite remarkable, and this collarless jacket is no exception. While this blazer trend isn’t about the belting, I have to admit some of my favorite iterations of the trend include that belted crossover look. The lack of a collar gives off a more casual aesthetic, and considering we are no longer going into the office, any blazer that offers a relaxed look is a yes in my book. Vince gets relaxed suiting right time and time again. I love how a collarless blazer allows a large shirt lapel to really shine. Next up, read up on the new revealing trend you can’t wear any undergarments with. Intrigued? I thought so.
