Blazers have become an integral part of a stylish wardrobe. They have an elegance in themselves that is rendered when they are worn with the appropriate attire. A blazer goes well with skirts, trousers, jeans, shirts or tops.
There are two broad classifications for blazers for women; the classic and the modern. The Classic blazer has the sophisticated and the mature look and can be identified as a blazer that does not accentuate the waistline.
This blazer usually has large collars and the color of the fabric along with the styling bears a mature look and it is best suited for women over 50.
On the other hand, the modern blazer is the one that fits the body and does not have the conventional blazer collar but something smaller and more stylish.
The slim short revers and the contemporary styling make it perfect for anyone who would want to keep herself up to date with the current trends. These blazers are called Tailored Blazers.
Modern blazers come in a variety of styles. They can be double breasted with white collars for a slightly official look and best suited for colder weather. They can be single breasted with large pockets with flaps, or sleek pockets without flaps.
There are blazer types which do not have any button and they are just meant to be worn open in front. They suit the informal attire the best and are usually sized to just cover the hips.
These blazers can be worn with leggings, skinny jeans and even shorts and are called the Boyfriend blazers. This blazer best suits women with fuller upper body and defined waist.
Lastly, there are the blazer types which have been modified to look more feminine and are meant to be worn with dresses. These are called the Short Fitted Blazers. They are characterized by their short size and are best paired with skirts, pants, dresses and skinny jeans.
Adding to these blazers are the Belted Blazers which have a belt but may or may not have sleeves. This is sophisticated modern styling that has an exquisite feminine touch. These are best paired with pencil skirts, fitted jeans and short sleeved blouses.
