The Ellen Wool Set

Posted: Apr 10 2019

Does anyone else’s weather app seem to fail them throughout Autumn? In my morning rush to get ready it will tell me today is going to be a clear blue above 23-degree sunny day. Then I’m stuck on my commute home in a downpour with slides and a white tee on. Unlike the regular person, fashion bloggers seem to be way ahead of the times. Already donning beautifully layered outfits, winter jackets and coats with black bold accessories. It seems my Instagram is already filling with pre-winter looks.

The look that does seem to be on everyone’s wish list right now is a wool blazer in a beautifully muted olive hue. If you are looking to make one investment purchase this winter, then this is the must have piece.
Definitely blogger approved, the Ellen Wool Set has been favoured for its trans-seasonal wear capabilities.

A feminine re-imagining of a classic blazer, the Ellen Wool Blazer perfectly combines the masculinity of a structured blazer with the femininity of a cinched waist and elongated silhouette.

If you are like me and wear black religiously in the cooler months, then the ‘Martini Olive’ will bring a great injection of colour into your everyday wardrobe. The relaxed silhouette allows room for additional layers underneath as we get a little deeper into the season.

The earthy tone of Martini Olive is easily adaptable against either black or white bases, mixing extremely well with layers and as a tonal shade. Jamie-Lee has effortlessly styled the Ellen Wool Blazer with an all-black uniform. Opting for a black denim skirt and black turtleneck, the Ellen Wool Blazer instantly completes your transeasonal look.


We all know by now a simple tailored blazer will elevate any outfit. Throw on a blazer and you are ready for a day full of meetings and work lunches. But have you tried a matching suit? From Victoria Beckham to Duchess of Sussex, we love the tailored two-piece look of female empowerment.

The blazer-belt combination is polished, timeless and adds a cool, fashion-forward sensibility. A belted blazer creates a refined, waist-defining look that accentuates the female form giving a new meaning to the word, power dressing. Wear it as a set or layer over floaty dresses or silk skirts for endless possibilities - whether you want a sophisticated corporate look or an edgy Friday night outfit.

If you want an off-duty casual look, we love Jamie Reilly’s simple, everyday co-ord look. I love this look because she styled the suit set in such an effortless way with pared back accessories; a modern cross-body bag, white cotton tank and matching sneakers. This look fuses functionality and fashion into one, bringing utility to the forefront and accentuating the hardware detailing of the blazer. Embrace your cool girl attitude with this look.

One of the most noteworthy looks that I appreciate for its effortless Parisian charm is Klara Lazar’s ensemble, featuring the Ellen Wool Set and notable vintage accessories. Klara has me dreaming of walking the streets of Europe again stopping for lunch dates or morning coffees with le croissants. Keeping base layers simple and adding just the right amount of effort, like a decorative hairpiece/clip or leather belt, are accessories that will not over style and is the key to achieving an effortless version of Parisian chic.

Vivienne Westwood said it best; ”Buy less, choose well”. The versatility of the Ellen Wool set definitely puts them high on my wish list this winter.
