Accentuating the waist, de-emphasizing the bust, dressing up/down an outfit... The possibilities are countless! I love a great blazer for all of those reasons and more.
Often the blazer is thought of as the signature piece to an office outfit or business attire. However it can be worn to and with almost anything. Notice, in the above pictures, that I have included a picture of an awesome sequin jacket being paired with shorts. Pairing the jacket with the shorts not only creates a chic and sassy look, but also versatility in where this outfit can be worn. We are now transitioning from summer to fall and many of you ladies have a few dresses that you just don't want to let go of. Well, a stylish structured blazer could be your answer and a cost--effective way to expand our wardrobe, without having to go out and buy as many pieces! In a hurry to a lunch-date and having a difficult time figuring out what to wear? Throw a colorful jacket on over that tank top and jeans you've been slumming in, slip on a cute pair of wedges or ballet flats and PRESTO! You are ready to go (and you look like you put some effort into your outfit, even if you didn't)!
Of course I didn't forget about my guys! A blazer/jacket works wonders for YOUR wardrobes as well! I know, I know... Some of you are thinking, "What is she trying to do to me? Make me wear suit?!" No brother, I'm just trying to help you to increase you "swagga". As seen in the pictures above, guys can wear jackets in multiple ways also, and some of the same shape benefits apply. Need to camouflage a growing belly or dress up your jeans and tee? I introduce to you the structured jacket...
Finding a jacket/blazer isn't very difficult and doesn't have to be expensive. Some of the jackets shown in this story come from retailers such as avenue.com, target.com, and menswear.com. You can find a location near you, if you are like me and like to put your hands on items before buying.
