A made-to-measure blazer is the hardest working item in the fashion-savvy woman’s wardrobe. Polished and perfect, it’ll take you from day to evening, from work to a last-minute weekend getaway.
Equally cool paired with jeans or a jumpsuit, there are practically unlimited ways to wear this classic. Overwhelmed by all the possibilities? Here are some items that you can pair your blazer with this summer:
A favorite among fashion editor’s, it’s a simple formula; straight-leg jeans; t-shirt (plain white or slogan); checked blazer; and a pair of block-heeled ankle boots – that manages to be both timeless and completely of the moment. Whether you’re a fashion editor or not, a blazer is an easy way to make jeans and a plain shirt look instantly more dressed up.
Trouser suits are an important part of a sophisticated wardrobe. They are also the perfect accoutrement for your made-to-measure blazer. Depending on the cut, colour and combination, you can achieve a well-polished, classy or modern, stylish look, perfect for any occasion. Be sure to invest in a made to measure trouser suit and it will pay you back many times over, whether you wear the pieces together or as separates.
There are plenty of designs and models of skirts to wear with your blazer, from mini to midi to maxi skirts, from short to long, from full A-line skirt to pencil skirt, with slits or pleats. If you believe a blazer looks quite masculine, pair it with a skirt in feminine prints and colors for the right contrast.
A fitted plaid shirt creates the most casual-chic style with blazer, and you can either dress it up with cool bottoms like a mini skirt for a more feminine look, leather skinnies for a rocker chic look, or with distressed boyfriend jeans for a casual look. Do your own color combination matching with the blazer. Be careful with prints though since plaid shirts already have busy patterns.
Blazers paired with statement belts are taking over this year. This easy styling trick was all over New York Fashion Week and London Fashion Week too. You can pair your favorite blazer with all types of belts, from super long skinnies to waist hugging corsets. The best part? You’re not limited to one specific blazer style either, a boxy check-print works just as well as a slim solid.
A made-to-measure blazer is a must have for your wardrobe. A timeless classic with “wear me everywhere” potential. After all, when it comes to styling a blazer, you can never have too many outfit ideas.
