Tips To Wearing Blazers
Posted on 02 March 2016
One of my absolute favorite items of clothing to wear is a blazer. There is something that I love about layering in general and the sophistication and style of a blazer. Now a blazer can be worn with just about anything from shorts, jeans, dresses, skirts, and dress pants- but the trick is to pick the right cut that compliments the rest of your outfit... Some are easier than others
Shorts: This is a great way to dress up a summer outfit. The length of the blazer when pairing it with shorts can be either waist or hip length. If you are wearing this in the summer I would suggest choosing a 3/4 length sleeve and in the winter adds some tights.
Dresses: A blazer is a great way to be able to wear a summer dress all year long. As for picking the cut and fit of the blazer with a dress, any length will work as long as the blazer is not too oversized or loose. A nice general rule would be the looser the fit and the larger the amount of fabric in the dress, then the more fitted and shorter the blazer should be.
Jeans & Pants: This is wear almost any blazers cut and style will work. Whether it is hip length or longer, waist length, or cropped it will probably look great. Pairing a blazer with pants is much less tricky than anything else.
Now, like I've said before... We should really ignore any fashion "rules" because it is not that cut and dry. It's not like this is engineering or rocket science (see what I did there). One thing I do believe is that every girl needs a great black blazer!
Here is a link to some inspiration on blazer wearing.
