Men’s blazers in smart, trendy cuts for office wear
World over, offices are adopting a more casual dress code at work.
Most employees prefer to look and feel comfortable, especially now that the workplace culture is becoming less formal and hierarchical.
This means ties are rare and three business suits even rarer! What is emerging as number one choice are blazers. Smart to look at and in some trendy cuts too. And they are so versatile. Team them with jeans or cotton trousers and you look set for any business meeting.
For Vineet Saraiwala, Inclusion Lead at Big Bazaar, a blazer is a must have. Vineet has six in his wardrobe.
“As a visually impaired person, texture matters most to me. I like a smooth texture and that also gives me an indication of the richness of the fabric. Blazers enhance your personality, be it a formal meeting at work or marriage. Blue is my number one choice as it pairs well with the rest of your wardrobe and works for most occasions. Blue also acts as a good contrast.”
Here’s Vineet wearing a dark blue blazer with black trousers.
Featured in our lifestyle section this week is a range of blazers, all under ₹3,000.

When it comes to formal meetings, Kerala disability rights activist Prajith Jaipal always chooses a blazer. A wheelchair user, Prajith frequently attends ministry level meetings and gives talks at corporate offices.
“I like colours like dark grey, black, ash and blue. I own three blazers in each of these shades. I had used a regular fit blazer but found it loose. It made my upper body look large, while the slim fit looks perfect on me and makes me feel confident. Given our kind of climate, I opt for cotton or linen usually”.
