Blazers for women are no longer just for days at the office!

Blazers are enjoying a bit of a renaissance at the moment; one just has to look at the latest Fashion Weeks around the world to see them featured. Of course, blazers have been enjoyed by generations of savvy stylistas but did you know their history?
According to Wikipedia, ‘the sartorial term blazer originated with the red “blazers” of the Lady Margaret Boat Club (1825), the rowing club of St. John’s College, Cambridge. The Lady Margaret club jackets were termed blazers because of the bright red cloth, and the term survived the original red coat.’
