How to pick the perfect blazer

Blazers add a whole new dimension to an outfit and can easily take your outfit from your morning coffee run to the cafe to your evening restaurant date.

My top tips to ensure your blazer is well-fitted:

  1. Firstly, do you like it or are you buying it ‘just to buy a blazer’
  2. Make sure the colours are that which you wear often – I would suggest in a neutral colour (see my previous blog post on neutrals)
  3. Now, look at the lining, the buttons… take it all in
  4. Is there a spare button?
  5. Check for snags or rips (even in the best shops, there can still be little abnormalities)
  6. Now, try it on over your top that you have on
  7. Make sure it is not stretched across the back
  8. Stretch out your arms in front of you, the sleeves should rest somewhere on your thumb
  9. Your blazer should be able to be buttoned up without you needing to pull on it (this also gives you a little room to wear different tops and blouses underneath
  10. Always size up if feels tight anywhere
  11. Make sure it isn’t made of an itchy material
  12. Finally… make sure you really like it! You do? Now BUY IT AND ENJOY IT!Β

Neutral Chic

Why do I like neutral colours?

They are:
– Stylish (a classic style will never date)
– Versatile (can be used as a ‘basic’ to any outfit or worn as a neutral monochromatic outfit)
– Re-wearable (are able to wear the same items over and over and people won’t notice)
– Time-saving (you know the fit will be great and the colours will always match)
– Foundation of any wardrobe (monochromatic bases just work!)
– Polished (neutral colours scream effortless elegance)

What are the neutral colours?

– Black
– White (and cream etc)
– Grey
– Brown (and beige etc)
– Navy
– Khaki
– Metallic (gold and silver etc)
