The navy blazer is definitely a hot contender for your closet this winter, but I remain partial to the good old slim, slightly longer, well-tailored black blazer (the tux version with ultra slim lapels are to die for right now). Come spring and the Bianca Jagger-esque white blazers are about to take over. ..stay tuned for more on that! But for now, let’s try and make the most of the Plain Jane blazer.
1. Belt it:
Slim and sleek belts worn over your blazer will do a world of good to your outfit. It will just clinch your waistline but also break the monotony of a dull outfit.
2. Roll it up:
Worn unbuttoned, rolled up sleeves have that unmistakable preppy look with a twist.
3. Wear it with little else:
Blazer for a night on the town? Why not! Wear the sleek blazer over high-waisted shorts, stockings and a tiny lace number. or perhaps a leopard corset print top…. You could also wear the blazer over a heavily sequined top or dress. Either way, it spells HOT!
4. Work it with a vest:
A blazer can make anything look boardroom-ready, yup, even your well worn white/ grey vest and blue jeans. Just pair it with a pair of brogues and your’re off to work! Pssst… Go rock n roll with a goth, embellished vest under the blazer and some wicked black pearls to go with it for a neo preppy look.
5.Dress it up… or down:
Tone down that hot dress with a blazer and leggings for the office…. Simply take off the blazer and leggings for a sick night out after work!
