With a very social summer on the horizon, itâ€™s important to invest in a few key pieces that can take you through the whole season, regardless of the occasion. Many of this summerâ€™s events are going to have a patriotic feel â€“ whether weâ€™re supporting the nationâ€™s sporting teams, or celebrating the Diamond Jubilee â€“ and we canâ€™t think of any item of clothing more appropriate than the Great British blazer.

The classic blazer should be navy blue, well cut and have contrasting metal buttons, but the real beauty of the blazer is its versatility â€“ itâ€™s perfectly acceptable for work, whilst sharp enough to wear at a party â€“ the ideal boardroom-to-bar item. To demonstrate this versatility weâ€™ve styled three unique outfits using just one blazer, with each outfit representing a different wardrobe requirement.Â The blazerÂ we’ve chosen is the Luxury Pure Wool Single Breasted Blazer because of its exquisite detailing andÂ its nod to all things BritishÂ â€“ it features a distinctive red, white and blue collar melton (thatâ€™s the bit behind your neck, on the underside of the lapels), coat-of-arms buttons, and it even uses cloth made in England.
