It's nearly blazer time! What goes under yours in spring?

Topshop camis are the go to for me, with skinnies / pencil skirt, boots or pumps and a scarf and drop necklace.

I really can't remember what I wore before blazers! Maybe a questionable denim jacket.

A stripy breton tee.
Disclaimer, I'm middle aged & frumpy..

I also thought stripes, but I have been doing that for about 6 years now...

Can you wear a blazer if you've got big boobs or fo you just look horrifically frumpy?

I have big boobs and don't (I think, hopefully!) look frumpy. I wear longer line, single breasted ones. Not too high cut tops, plus a long necklace to draw the eyes down.

Some good ideas, thanks. I would wear a tee rather than a vest/cami just so I don't have to launder the blazer as much blush

Does a shirt work underneath or is there too much collar-fuss going on?

Definitely stripes. Matalan's modal tops are great value and are super soft.

But where do you get a nice, seriously cheap navy blazer to fit size 16/18 hips and size 14 shoulders and boobs?

H&m do nice, cheap blazers in size14+

I bought a great fitting navy blazer in Banana Republic and I just can't join the love party I feel like Princess Di when I wear mine.
