Five black pieces for an unmissable bold look
Is it a dress? Is it a blazer? It’s both! Introducing 'drazers'
The fashion gurus love coming up with new catchphrases and buzzword - after ‘shacket,’ ‘athleisure,’ and ‘jardigan’ the new buzz is about ‘drazers’ that has spread like fire in the fashion world. A long line jacket which can be worn as both, an open blazer and a dress, is slowly becoming the workwear staple; thanks to all the celebrities from Priyanka Chopra to Kendall Jenner for flaunting and bringing these in the limelight. Well, we can totally relate to their choice! It’s indeed the simplest way to look powerful, sophisticated, and dressed-up, all at the same time.
Get a lowdown of these ultra-fashionable ones that we picked for you.
Alessandra Rich Virgin Wool Twill Blazer
Fresh off the Autumn 2019 collection, this black double-breasted blazer dress drapes beautifully and ruffles towards the hem. Representing Alessandra Rich’s take on 1940s fashion, the encrusted buttons ooze glamour fit for an heiress! And like all good suiting in the world, it is crafted in Italy with only the finest wool in a twill weave. This one's for you if you love a clear note of femininity in your outfits.
Monse Stretch Wool Blazer Mini Dress
Made for true experimentalists at heart, this mini blazer dress employs Monse’s deconstructionist signature. It’s made in the US from stretch wool along with striped satin lining which peaks out asymmetrically towards the hem. The drazer buttons up diagonally near the side seam and will pair well with your trendy mules or the open toe strappy sandals.
Maggie Marilyn Leap of Faith Double-Breasted Pinstriped Woven Mini Dress
A piece from Net-a-Porter’s Net Sustain line, this drazer has a lovely blue colour which is somewhat between the shade card of navy and aqua. Aptly named ‘The Leap of Faith,’ the bright colours from Maggie Marilyn’s collection will certainly brighten your day and boost your confidence as well. The white pinstripe allows enough room for complimenting white or silver accessories. Other noticeable features are its quality wool and lightly padded shoulders.
Blaze Milano Vayana Sunshine Belted Fringed Leopard Print Silk Crepe Blazer
Blaze Milano was born out of three former fashion editors thirst for creating blazers with as much precision as the ones made by tailors on Savile Row. Called the ‘Vayana Sunshine’ this blazer is made in a leopard printed crepe fabric and fringe trim detail. All of Blaze Milano pieces have a downturned pocket opening named the ‘Smiley pocket’ so that ladies don’t have to miss out on comfort or lug bags around. We suggest wearing this for outdoors with huge hats or in the evening with silver-toned sandals!
Balmain Double-breasted Crepe Blazer Dress
This one has a straighter fit which hugs the body a bit less but Balmain makes up for femininity with the blush pink colour. Something fit for a female 007, this drazer has a satin lapel and metal engraved signature buttons emblematic of the iconic house of Balmain. It comes in a crepe fabric and will look beautiful with a silver rollover clutch that matches the buttons.
Blaze Milano Funy Fred Zigzag Silk Blend Blazer Mini Dress
Another one from Blaze Milano, this piece is not to be confused with just another blingy dress. A fine example of Italian craftsmanship, this drazer is crafted in a silk jacquard fabric woven together to create a zigzag pattern. Moreover, it’s lined with a crepe fabric so it will hold its structure well. Taking a less highlighted route, the fringes settle well in the zigzag pattern. Given that, we leave it to your imagination as to how dazzling you would look while dancing and twirling around. Pair it with minimal yet striking earrings and be on your way!
Rime Arodaky Jax Belted Lace Trimmed Crepe Mini Dress
Rime Arodaky is, in fact, a bridalwear designer and this drazer called the ‘Jax’ is an extension of his unconventional take on all things wedding. Originally intended for the bride-to-be’s rehearsal dinner, we can think of some other uses for this pristine beauty. While wearing white to a wedding in most parts of India is a big no, we don’t mind giving this one a swing for everything from brunch to coffee dates. Coming to the details, the crepe dress has netted lace and comes with a tie to cinch the waist. We suggest pairing it with sparkling diamonds and barely-there sandals.
Balmain Button Embellished Wool Twill Mini Dress
Made to stand out in a crowd, this Balmain drazer’s colour reminds of Baywatch lifeguard uniforms. Channel the same sensational vibes via this Parisian design. The sexy fit makes up for the loss of the pocket and the fact that it doesn’t actually open up. Plus, the back has a shiny exposed zip. It’s perfect for all the Christmas parties even for a repeat feature on Valentine’s. We would pair it with a demure pink lip, what about you?
David Koma Sequined Cady Mini Dress
David Koma certainly knows how to pack a surprise and these embellished sleeves are proof. The British-made drazer might look business-like from the front but it says party with magenta toned sequins running down the sides. Top it off with statement earrings and elaborate shoes for a glammed-up evening look.
Now that you are familiar with a host of drazers, get on board the trend train and invest in a power-packed piece which will go a long way. It’s as easy as slipping into a dress but it combines the forces of both a blazer and a mini. We wouldn’t deprive our wardrobes of it! Would you?
