Today’s Item: The Blazer

A blazer is an essential for any wardrobe. It is a staple piece that can be worn in a variety of settings besides an office. Though the blazer is a key piece to have for your business casual wardrobe (as a talked about here) it can also be remixed in new, innovative ways for a fashion forward and stylish piece. The blazer is a timeless piece that will outlive any wardrobe.

The blazer tends to be a little masculine so there a few ways in which you can feminize it a bit. For one make sure you invest in a blazer that is tailored to you. That way it fits to your feminine curves. Another way of doing this is to pair your blazer with more feminine pieces, such as a lace dress. The juxtaposition of masculine and feminine create a crisp ensemble that will win over any style council.

The blazer shouldn’t to be restricted to business or formal settings. The blazer is the perfect piece for a casual day. Pair it with cropped, distressed jeans and a basic tee for a laid-back yet pulled together look. The jeans tone down the formality of the blazer while the blazer adds a bit of structure to the outfit. You can do this with a casual floral dress or even high waisted shorts. It’s a great outfit for a lunch with friends or even a barbeque with the family.

Don’t be afraid to wear your blazer for a night on the town. A blazer can add a touch of sophistication to your night time attire without looking too stuffy. A great combination is pairing a sequin top with a blazer. The combination of structure paired with the glitz and a bit of egde makes for a one of a kind ensemble. You can pair it with a form fitting skirt or dark skinnys for stylish night on the town.

The importance of the blazer is it adds class and sophistication to your wardrobe. It’s the perfect tool to add structure to your trendier pieces.
