I’ve always been a fan of the blazer. I like their structured, sleek and tailored-look. And I love that you can add one to pretty much any outfit and look great. They are superb for extending your wardrobe, especially in the cold weather.
I’m enjoying the recent wave of variations on the blazer. Especially the “boyfriend blazer”, which I’ve never heard of until recently. I love the look of them (jacket on the left). But they definitely don’t suit my body shape – I’m short and petite, and the boyfriend blazer tends to be a bit shapeless, boxy and baggy. I feel like paddle-pop ice cream when I wear one.
So I tend to go for jacket that’s a little more fitted and cropped (middle and right jackets). Much kinder to my waist and hips.
