Fashion Staples – 2/30 The Perfect Blazer

The Perfect Blazer

Even if you don’t work at an office, every woman should own a black blazer that fits her perfectly. This is a wardrobe staple as it can be worn with jeans, little dresses, trousers, and skirts.


How do I know my blazer size?
Chest – Measure chest just under arms and across shoulder blades, holding tape level (don’t hold your breath). Be sure to cross over the shoulder blades and the fullest part of your chest. Blazer sizes are equal to your chest size. For example, if you have a 38″ chest, you would wear a size 38 blazer.

Styling Tips – 6 Blazer Looks
Dress Shirt with Tie. For those more formal events, you can’t go wrong with this classic pairing.
2. Cardigans and Sweaters. Adding a cardigan or sweater underneath your blazer is a great way to add warmth, texture and an air of sophistication.
3. Oxford
4. Polos
5. V-Neck Tee
6. Jeans.


What colour pants to wear with a black blazer?
If you have very dark skin then wear a light shirt, and you’ll look great. If you don’t then I’d suggest steering away from black and going for warmer tones like navy, grey or brown. Ideally oxford grey or light grey pants work best with a black blazer. You can also wear tan/khaki or beige with black too.

The blazer is a step lower than the suit jacket. It is a hybrid of sorts because it is more formal than a sports jacket but unlike the suit jacket, a blazer is not made with a matching pair of trousers. Blazers have a looser fit compared to suit jackets. They are also not as structured especially in the shoulder area.


What color shirt goes with a blue jacket?
The first thing you want to do is create a contrast with the navy blue colour. The easiest ways for you to day that is to stick with dress shirts in light tones. You cannot go wrong with either a white or light blue dress shirt to go with your blazer.
