For too long, women have worn blazers in the office and in professional settings only. Thank goodness that this is no longer the case today. Today, blazers are making an appearance in every occasion of a woman’s life, and can be found in almost every wardrobe. No wonder AW’16 is all about the latest blazers! What I am here to do today, is show you how you can employ your blazer in every one of your fashion outfits to give your fashion outfits a new life, and most importantly, to make you look thinner.
As you can tell, I am quite enthusiastic about blazers, after all blazers are just like cardigans; they are versatile, they can revolutionize your look, conceal imperfections, and give you a more sophisticated look. Blazers can also either make you look casual or boost it up a notch, making you look professional and elegant. Let’s start exploring!
Blazers With Jeans
There is nothing more chic than throwing on a blazer with your jean outfit; it’s an instantaneous transformation from casual to casual-chic, and I think you’ll agree. For a perfect thinning illusion, pair a simple dark blazer with skinny jeans to conceal any imperfections around your midsection and to thin your legs. Remember, if you have a rounder tummy, opt-out for high waisted skinny jeans to smoothen bumps. With a blazer and high waisted skinny jeans you are guaranteed for a full thinning illusion around your waist. For pear shaped woman, boyfriend or distressed jeans and a blazer with shoulder pads can give your body shape a more balanced look. Remember to wear a V-neck blouse that accents your waist for an all round flattering and thinning illusion. Whether you choose to wear trainers or flats, the blazer will instantly add a more dressed-up feel to your fashion outfits, so choose whichever shoes fit your mood.
Maxi Skirts And Blazers
The thinning fashion outfit combination I’m about to reveal is going to become your favourite statement this autumn; I guarantee it. If you are a maxi skirt lover, like I, you no longer have to sulk about the upcoming cooler weather, since you can hold onto your maxi skirt just a little longer. Just pair your maxi skirt with a blazer, and you can wear the look into autumn. The contrast between your feminine maxi skirt – particularly if it’s in floral print – will make a beautiful contrast with your more rugged blazer. Moreover, the long flowing lines of your A-line maxi skirt will elongate the lines of your figure, thinning your silhouette and accenting your waist, making you look slimmer and thinner than ever. Of course, you can match your blazers with all types of skirts that flatter your body shape, from pencil skirts, to mini skirts and pleats, enjoy this brilliant combination.
Dresses With Blazer
Likewise, blazers look absolutely stunning with any type of dress. You can play up or down the look, by choosing a more relaxed or a luxe blazer. For example, you can play down a formal dress, which a rich fabric, skin-tight dress by wearing a relaxed blazer, or add elegance by accenting the dress and your sophistication with a luxe blazer. Now remember to choose a dress that fits your body shape. While a blazer is a structured piece of a fashion outfit, it cannot and should not have to conceal your imperfections accented by a dress that is not suited for your body shape. For the ultimate thinning look, every piece of your fashion outfit should work together and have a thinning effect on your body shape.
As with most clothing items, colour can either accent or de-emphasise. Bright blazers will bring attention to your upper half, while darker colour blazers will help smoothen and conceal bumps and lumps. Every woman should have a black and white blazer; the black blazer will become a timeless, go-to item, while the white will add elegance, freshness and sass to your fashion outfits. Pastel shades are also trending this fall, and are perfect for a more casual night out. If you are looking to thin your look even further, pair a blazer in a similar shade and colour family with the rest of your fashion outfit, which will elongate the lines of your figure, creating the illusion of a thinner shape.
