Inherited from the male wardrobe, the blazer is today a staple of the female wardrobe. The women’s suit jacket is an easy piece to wear in everyday life, which you absolutely must have in your closet. We give you some tips for choosing and matching your blazer.
Length, cut, material … What is a blazer?
Let’s start by quickly taking back the BABA from the blazer : what is it, how is it cut, what length, what material …? Question cuts first, there are two: curved or straight. The first marks the waist and falls at the hips. The straight cut goes down to the beginning of the thighs most often, and allows to lengthen the silhouette. It is the classic cut of a suit jacket for women.
In winter, we prefer wool or cashmere blazers , which keep us warm and which offer a beautiful finish. In summer and as soon as the good weather arrives, we swap our warm blazer for a cotton or linen version, lighter but just as chic. You can also, in winter, opt for a women’s suit jacket in tweed , with a straight cut and a round neck. This option is a little more “strict” than the others, and must therefore be offset with more casual pieces to stay modern. Last possibility, the tuxedo jacket, with a compulsory shiny satin collar. Both chic and fashionable, the women’s tuxedo jacket can be worn in a boyish version over a white shirt or in a more glamorous way with nothing underneath.
Choosing the right blazer
To be sure of being stylish with a blazer, you must first choose the right one. Here are some tips for finding your women’s suit jacket or blazer .
Depending on your morphology
If you are small
Rather small women will be to their advantage with a fitted and short tailored jacket , which falls above the buttocks.
If you are tall
The older ones can choose what they like: short or long, curved or straight. Namely, the fitted cut of the blazer is best suited to women who have the marked waist.
If you are round
The woman’s suit jacket is absolutely perfect if you have shapes. Chosen rather long (to the top or even in the middle of the thighs) and straight, it refines the silhouette. Be sure to wear your blazer open, to avoid getting “locked in”.
If you are petite
A curved and short blazer will be perfect on a small silhouette since it will emphasize the forms, but the straight and long version will work just as well. The latter will give you a very charming little boyish look, and will also add to your look.
Depending on your style
Like all timeless fashion, the women’s blazer has been declined in many ways, and you will be spoiled for choice for yours.
Rather classic chic?
If you’re looking for a tailored jacket that you can wear on any occasion and with all your favorite outfits, bet on the classic. Black, navy blue and light gray are the easiest colors to wear and match.
Fancy a trendy blazer?
If you want a more original and trendy woman blazer, we advise you to bet on the tiles, the big trend of recent seasons. We also really like the sequined or metallic blazers, which become real fashion statements as soon as we put them on.
Ideas for looks with a women’s suit jacket
We told you, the women’s blazer can be worn with everything, and works for all styles. Demonstration.
Casual-chic outfit with a blazer
Put on pretty classic raw jeans, a white T-shirt (with a little embroidery, why not) and your favorite blazer for an outfit that is both chic and casual. Add a pair of leopard sneakers for the fashion touch, and a bucket bag for elegance.
Comfy outfit with a blazer
Wear your blazer, preferably straight cut, with a black denim mini-skirt and a loose fine knit sweater underneath. Put on a pair of flat boots and finish off your look with a pretty fashionable belt.
Office attire with blazer
To be trendy in the office, nothing like the women’s tailored jacket. Opt for a trendy model, checkered for example, and wear your jacket with black or navy blue 7/8 pants. Slip a white blouse underneath, and a pair of pumps or moccasins on your feet, you will be perfect.
