Every Influencer I Follow Owns This Cult High-Street Buy

Maxine Eggenberger

They say nothing haunts you like the things you didn't buy (or something like that… right?). Regardless, it's a feeling of regret I know all too well.

Last year, I fell head over heels for a cover-up from & Other Stories. Specifically, a woollen blazer. A light beige hue with an oversized silhouette and a weighty, woven finish, I knew the blazer would make for the perfect accompaniment to my off-duty jeans-and-jumper outfits. It would also make for a chic throw-on over printed dresses and pleated midi skirts.

Maybe I was waiting for payday, or perhaps I'd recently bought something else. Whatever the reason, I decided to wait for a couple of weeks to treat myself. However, as you've likely already surmised, it sold out before I could get my hands on it. As such, I spent the rest of the winter pining after something I knew I couldn't have. What was particularly agonising was the fact that seemingly every influencer I follow owned it.

Thankfully, my forthcoming summer wardrobe began to preoccupy my mind, and soon my blazer despair was a distant memory. At least, it was until last week. Upon scrolling through & Other Stories' new-in section, I found it: 2018's cult wool blazer. However, this time, the piece was offered in two colourways.

Given the fact it was such a hit, & Other Stories has reissued the wool blazer for 2019 in the same light beige hue as well as luxe chocolate shade. I'm a girl who learns from her mistakes, so I bought it right away. I suggest that if you want to look chic at all times this autumn, you do the same.
