It’s hard to beat a classic blazer and jeans pairing for a smart but comfortable look that will take you from day to night.

But if you really want to sharpen your look for the seasons ahead, you might want to think about adding some pinstripes to the mix like the Duchess of Sussex.

No stranger to the blazer and jeans combination, Meghan took the look to a chic new level at an Invictus Games function, where she wore a Veronica Beard Beacon pinstripe blazer, which is now on sale.

With sleek pinstripes and statement white buttons, the Veronica Beard blazer has more details to stand out than your average blazer but it’s far from flashy.

The fully-lined jacket is made from a linen blend so it’s lightweight for warm weather. But the addition of polyester and viscose means that it won’t crease.

Sizes 00 all the way through to 16 can be purchased via wait list for the discounted price of $455 – a saving of almost $200.

The blazer is so flattering that you can wear it without anything underneath and dress to impress.

But when children are present or you want to be taken more seriously, slip on a blouse to smarten the look.

This jacket can be worn multiple ways for work and play.


An oversized blazer brings both a smart and a rock chick vibe to jeans or pants. It says that you’re ready to look your best but you’re not willing to compromise on comfort.
