Collarless Blazers

Blazers are frequently the foundation of office wear. Paired with a complementary skirt or a pair of slacks, they project an air of confidence and professionalism. Most include a set of lapels, but trust us, they're not necessary. In truth, we often prefer collarless blazers to their more structured sisters.

For some, taking away the lapels reminds them of the 80s. By the way that's what we consider a compliment, not a criticism. Which may be part of the reason why they're popping up everywhere, including on the runways. Coperni, Del Core and Zimmermann showcased the increasingly popular silhouette in their Fall 2023 presentations. Tibi keeps the trend going for Spring 2024. But Ferragamo was championing ditching lapels all the way back during the Spring 2023 shows.

Length is an important factor when it comes to narrowing down your favorite versions. It's a pretty even split between cropped takes and longer interpretations. Really, it all comes down to what you're looking for. Even the cropped ones can be worn to work with a little creative styling. And maybe a high-waisted pencil skirt or a pair of pants. Some of the jackets can appear a bit boxy so keep that in mind while shopping.

Another styling tip? Plan ahead regarding which tops are best suited to the specific profile of your blazer of choice. Interesting turtlenecks and slim-fit button-downs are great options. Although there's nothing stopping you from rocking the blazers solo. As long as the buttons are buttoned, of course. When a coordinating bottom is available, go ahead and spring for the set. You don't need to go matchy-matchy, however. Combining a blazer with jeans and sneakers is an easy and super stylish way to go.

As you've probably already deduced, a good portion of our picks don't come cheap. That's what happens when you're leaning into a still emerging fashion trend. We did manage to unearth a handful of other options that'll cost you hundreds instead of thousands of dollars. Much like the 80s, collarless blazers are likely to come in and out of fashion. Your selections may occasionally lie dormant in your closet, but at some point they'll be ready to come out in the sun again.
