Best blazers for the winter season
Winter fashion is characterized by lots of layers. Staying warm and stylish is important, which is why this year blazers are the must have in your wardrobe this season. These pieces are so versatile and easy to pair over your favorite shirts from summer, or new purchases this holiday season, like the peplum that has transitioned from the spring to a winter trend as well. Here are the some tips on how to work the different blazer styles during the winter season.
- Embrace the menswear style. Originally the boyfriend blazer was inspired by the act of borrowing your boyfriend’s clothes, like his jeans or jacket. Now boyfriend blazers are made specifically for women, but still maintain that oversized look. Roll up or cuff the sleeves to add a polished feminine touch. Since this blazer is loose fitting, you should wear it with a more fitting pair of pants, like skinny and straight leg styles, or leggings.
- Belt it. By adding a belt to either a fitted blazer, or a boyfriend blazer, you accentuate the small of your waist, which gives you a nice hour glass shape. This look is modern and looks professional, making it a great outfit for the workplace.
- Short and sweet. Cropped blazers are especially versatile because while they look professional, they work great for casual wear as well. You can either button these up or leave them unbuttoned giving you so more freedom to move. You can also wear these pieces with just about any type of pants, since they have a more fitted style. They also look great over dresses or skirts. Their length works over peplums, keeping the style’s highlighted silhouette as well.
If you are looking for something to break up the knit sweaters or cardigans that usually take over during the winter, blazers are the perfect solution.
