They say nothing haunts you like the things you didn’t buy (or something like that, right?). Regardless, it’s a feeling of regret I know all too well.
Last year, I fell head over heels for a cover-up from & Other Stories. Specifically, a woollen blazer. A light beige hue with an oversized silhouette and a weighty, woven finish, the blazer would make for the perfect accompaniment to my off-duty jeans-and-jumper outfits. It would also make for a chic throw-on over printed dresses and pleated midi skirts.
Maybe I was waiting for payday, or perhaps I’d recently bought something else. Whatever the reason, I decided to wait for a couple of weeks to treat myself. However, as you’ve likely already surmised, it sold out before I could get my hands on it. As such, I spent the rest of the winter pining after something I knew I couldn’t have. What was particularly agonising was the fact that seemingly every influencer I follow owned it.
Thankfully, my forthcoming summer wardrobe began to preoccupy my mind, and soon my blazer despair was a distant memory. At least, it was until last week. Upon scrolling through & Other Stories’ new-in section, I found it: the cult wool blazer. However, this time, the piece was offered in six colourways (yes really) including a very chic pistachio hue.
Keep scrolling to see how my favourite influencers wear their & Other Stories wool blazer and then shop it. Oh, and don’t forget to see the other amazing tailoring options the brand has to offer.
