They say nothing haunts you like the things you didn’t buy—or something like that, right? Regardless, I know this feeling of regret all too well.
A couple of years ago, I fell head over heels for a cover-up from & Other Stories—specifically, a woollen blazer. In 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 be ideal as 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 a couple of weeks to treat myself to it. 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 year 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 wardrobe began to preoccupy my mind, and soon, my blazer despair was a distant memory. At least, it was, until just recently. Upon scrolling through & Other Stories’ new-in section, I found it: the cult wool blazer. Of course, I snapped it up. I already envisage myself wearing it with leather, light knitwear, jeans and midi dresses to help me stylishly transition from winter to spring. Yes, I’m still thinking about my springtime outfits, and if you also want to secure the & Other Stories wool blazer before it inevitably sells out again, I suggest you do, too.
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 options the brand has to offer as the perfect cover-up this season and beyond.
