On Trend, On Budget: Blazer Edition
A good blazer is a must have in every working girls closet. While it also constitutes as a solid investment piece in my book, it doesn’t have to break the bank. When shopping for a blazer-whether that be for work, or play- look for one that meets all of these specifications.
1. It should not restrict arm movement. When trying on a jacket, make sure that you can cross your arms and lift them above your head.
2. The blazer, in question should hit where your hip bone attaches to your pelvic bone. It can even be a touch longer. The goal is to create long, lean lines in an effort to elongate the torso.
3. Look for a blazer with darts. Often, we can run into the issue of boxy jackets in an attempt to fit our bust line. For the most flattering look, find one with darts or slimming seams at the bust line. It will create a skimming effect , which will streamline your look.
