For years, power blazers have been pushed upon us like some sort of workwear Holy Grail, the key to nailing that corporate interview or the magical item that will give us the confidence to take on the boardroom.

That still rings true, but thanks to street style stars and influencers, blazers have been taken out of the office and have been upsized, with many giving this piece a cooler update. We especially love this piece paired with a pair of bike shorts and a belt cinched at the waist, or you could take your cues from Hanya Seah, co-owner of Chez G and turn yours into a cropped jacket (especially with the crazy heat wave we’ve been enduring!).
