As much as we’d love to campaign for sweatpants to become the new workwear uniform, the impending return to office life means that it is time to add blazers and button-downs back to our everyday lineup. However, for those looking to inject fresh energy into their everyday uniform, there is plenty of celebrity inspiration to take notes from. Cue: the great blazer revolution of 2022, as approved by the finest names in the biz.
From unconventional hues to unexpected silhouettes, consider this your one-stop guide to giving your workwear wardrobe a celebrity-inspired makeover.
All-white needn’t be all boring. Further proof can be found in the wardrobe of rising star Shanaya Kapoor, who offered an impactful take on a monochromatic look by experimenting with lengths and silhouettes—a bandeau top paired with straight-legged trousers with waist-tie detailing and cinched together with a classic white blazer.
Once you have mastered head-to-toe colour, it is time to flex your sartorial muscles with tone-on-tone dressing. For inspiration, look no further than Khushi Kapoor’s understated yet impactful neutral look. The trick is as easy as it is doable: teaming a monochrome pantsuit with a nude bralette in a more saturated hue to ace the memo on tonal dressing.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas
Nothing is ever black and white, especially not your choice in blazer colours. Priyanka Chopra Jonas will inspire you to push the envelope further by experimenting with unconventional hues, such as sunshine yellow. Contrasted with glossy black detailing at the cuffs and pockets, a mood-enhancing hue like hers will have you in a summer-y state of mind all year long.
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja
Keep the colour party going with soothing pastel hues that will make for a tranquil sight on a busy workday. Sonam Kapoor Ahuja has all the inspiration you need, with her mint green pick from Beyoncé’s adidas x Ivy Park collection. With a wash of colour on the top and drawstring detailing on the pants, this coordinated set offers the best of both worlds.
Once you have mastered colours, it is time to get creative with your choice of silhouette. Take your cues from Ananya Panday’s edgier take on the classic workwear blazer with a cropped number that can transition from desk to drinks with ease. Pair yours with high-waisted trousers during the day and opt for a coordinated skirt as day turns to dusk.
