Throw away the old rule book that you can’t layer because of... the weather. Yes, Singapore is tropical but that doesn't mean we have to resort to just vest tops or crop tops. Sure, bowling in with a faux fur thick coat (did you know yet that real fur is so out now?) isn’t the best idea in temperatures soaring about 30 degrees - but there’s always a middle ground.
Meet the middle ground - lightweight blazers.
Blazers are our go-to for the ‘serious professional coming through’ office look, but the heavy stiff ones can often overpower the air-con and still leave you sweaty. Also, it’s difficult to rock these thick bad boys beyond the day job. Lightweight blazers, on the other hand, can transcend both freezing air con and outdoor temperatures as well as the work wardrobe and weekend attire. It’s a double win.
But wait, these picks are all under $100 too, meaning your bank account will still be your friend post-shopping spree. That’s a triple win, my friends.
Here are 10 different styles for you to take your pick.
