1) THEY ARE EASY TO FIND AT THRIFT STORES!
Blazers have been around FOREVER it seems! Every time I go thrifting, I find a few on the racks! Yes, some have shoulder pads, but they can easily be removed (I personally do not like them attatched)!
2) THEY ADD INSTANT STYLE TO ANY OUTFIT
You may be wearing biker shorts, sweatpants, chunky sneakers, jean shorts, but adding that blazer instantly dresses up your outfit! It also makes your outfit look expensive!
3) THEY CAN BE WORN AS A CUTE JACKET!
As fall is approaching, it’s starting to get chilly outside. For a date night, a nice dinner, or a girls’ hangout, instead of a grabbing cardigan, which can look sloppy, why not add a blazer for that extra lift of style for those special occasions while still keeping warm! I get cold easily so I always have to bring something!
4) THEY ARE VERSATILE
You can wear a blazer with almost anything! Blazers look great with graphic tees, sweaters, tanks, dresses, overalls, or skirts! They look classy with chunky sneakers, Converse, heels, boots, and sandles! The only thing to keep in mind is if your blazer is a classic plaid or has wild designs to match your funky personality, try to pair them with natural or plain (unless you’re into pattern mixing and matching!).
5) THEY MAKE YOU APPEAR TALLER AND SLIMMER
Wearing longer blazers that go past your waist, actually help you appear taller and slimmer because they make your torso look longer! Make sure the blazer isn’t super oversized so you arn’t swimming in it, otherwise, you will loose your figure. If yours is larger, you can belt it and that helps bring it in!
Here are some inspiring ways that you can style your blazer! I will be wearing a plaid linen blazer and a dark multicolored plaid blazer to demonstrate!
