Spring Blazers

April 21, 2016

Keeping up with trends can sometimes feel like a full time job.   The current off the shoulder top trends are cute, but most all of these tops are boxy.  I tried several on and have yet to find one that is flattering to a fuller bust and with a longer hem.  Let me know if you find one. Jumpsuits and rompers are another trend that just isn't a fit for me.  Knowing how, and when, to stay true to my body is important.  One item I have been adding to my closet recently are blazers and jackets.  I would consider these to be an investment.  Once you own a few in staple colors then I would opt to add a few fun colors or patterns.    

A great way to dress up any outfit is to throw on a blazer.  Adding this hot pink blazer to a simple white tee and distress jeans outfit steps it up for sure.  Rolling the sleeves keeps it casual and relaxed. A great asset to any wardrobe is owning classic staples.  A colorful blazer is a must in my opinion.  Read my entire list of building a wardrobe here.  There are plenty of blazers to select from and I suggest you really experiment with the length and cut before you invest in one.  For me, a longer jacket is more flattering in a bolder color and I can get away with a shorter jacket if the color is lighter.  The most important detail is the fit, and never get tripped up on the size.  You may have to go up a size for a proper fit. I recently fell in love with this blazer and need to really analyze how much use it truly will receive being such a statement.
