Blazers are the best.
They are for me now and have been forever.
I think we underestimate their versatility and how good they look. Some women are not confident wearing a blazer, from where I sit most women wear them well. We don’t have to look masculine in a jacket – far from it – and like the leather jacket, they can sit very pretty over a dress.
The blazer is one of my most important wardrobe essentials and when I talk blazer I am speaking collectively. I have a “blazer” wardrobe for different seasons, different moods and different occasions. I save them for years and they still work hard and make me feel confident when I wear them.
The Blazers have it, why?
A blazer finishes an outfit and I feel “dressed” when I am wearing one.
They flatter, once you know the best shape and length it’s a no brainer. Nothing much changes between fashion seasons with the blazer – the shoulders get wider, bigger or the waist nipped in a little more or less – but essentially they are the same.
Investment in a blazer saves much everywhere else. A piece to last is expensive but on a cost per wear basis, it is a winner. Wear it with jeans and a humble white tee and nothing can look more stylish.
Versatility; the blazer moves and shakes everywhere. Pick yours from the tuxedo to the boyfriend or the classic suit style.
Self-confidence and the blazer make a good pair. I don’t know why but wearing a jacket gives me a boost.
One of the best looks is a feminine style in a masculine framework; a suit and especially the jacket works as a uniform.
Another one for when indecision rears its annoying head. xv
