If you ask me, a good blazer is a wardrobe essential. Whether you’re a man or a woman, have a desk job or not, a solid fitted blazer is vital.
The key to making an affordable blazer look expensive is a good fit. Well fitted blazers immediately look more elegant and refined. Make sure that it isn’t too tight nor too loose. It should close in the middle comfortably without bulging nor have access fabric. The sleeves should end right at your wrists, not longer or shorter.
If you’re petite, choose a blazer that hits right on your hips. Anything longer will make your figure look tiny. If you’re tall, a longer blazer will give the illusion of a shorter torso.
The beauty of a blazer is that you can wear it with absolutely anything. With black tights and an oversized white tee, a pair of jeans, a dress or even suit pants, it looks great with anything and everything. Personally, I prefer having at least one dark colored blazer in my wardrobe at all time. No matter the season, I know it will always look fashionable and elegant.
If you don’t own one already, make sure to go ahead and find your perfect blazer. Trust me, it’s what your wardrobe is missing!
