The blazer trend has become a staple in modern fashion, offering a versatile piece that can be dressed up or down for various occasions. Some of my fabulous clients aren’t too sure of how to really ‘rock’ them so we have fun trying lots of different ways.
Evolution of the Blazer Trend!!
Classic Roots: Traditionally part of formal business attire, blazers have their roots in menswear, often paired with suits.
Casual Integration: Over the years, blazers have transitioned into more casual wardrobes, paired with jeans, t-shirts, and of course sneakers.
Bold and Oversized: The trend has also seen the rise of oversized blazers, adding a chic, relaxed vibe.
Colour and Patterns: Beyond classic black, navy, and grey, blazers now come in vibrant colours, patterns like plaids and checks, and even floral prints. Wear a hair coloured blazer or one similar to your eye colour for memorable added impact!
Fabric Variety: Blazers are now available in diverse fabrics, including wool, cotton, velvet, linen, and tweed, catering to different seasons and styles.
Ways to Wear a Blazer : )
Super Cas But Still Stylish…
With Jeans: Pair a fitted or oversized blazer with jeans and a basic t-shirt for an effortlessly stylish look. The more textured the blazer the more casual appeal.
With Sneakers: Add a pair of white sneakers for a comfortable yet trendy outfit.
Office Ready…
Classic Combination: Wear a tailored blazer with matching trousers or a pencil skirt. Opt for neutral colours like black, navy, or grey.
Blouse or Shirt: Add a crisp blouse or shirt underneath for a polished professional look.
Evening Elegance…
Over a Dress: Throw a blazer over a cocktail dress or a slip dress to add a layer of sophistication.
With Heels: Complete the look with a pair of elegant heels.
Sweaters and Hoodies: For colder weather, layer a blazer over a thin sweater or even a hoodie for a stylish streetwear vibe.
Scarves and Accessories…
Enhance the look with scarves, statement necklaces/jewels, or belts.
Styling Tips.
Fit Matters: Ensure the blazer fits well on the shoulders and isn’t too tight or too loose. Don’t go too boxy through the body as it can make you feel wider. Avoid blazers that are too long if you’re petite. Soft tailored blazers are great for petites & those who are wide through the waist.
Accessorize Well: Use accessories to enhance your look without overwhelming it or you. Small details/pockets/lapels/buttons if you’re petite or larger busted.
Tailoring: If off-the-rack blazers don’t fit perfectly, consider having them tailored.
