Jackets: Slimming, Professional if Done Right

When I was younger, my mother tried to pass of to me her old, colorful, long blazers complete with gold plastic buttons and polyester lining. Smartly I declined, thinking I would never be interested in wearing anything so hideous. While I'd never wear that orange monstrosity from way back when, I have since that time discovered the beauty of blazers!

Blazers allow you to dress up an outfit, pull your top and pants together, and add a spice of color to your wardrobe. There are a few key guidelines that should be kept in mind when buying a blazer and putting an outfit together.

1. Don't buy a blazer that is too long. Try to make at least some of your butt visible; otherwise your thighs in the back will look magnified. And no one wants that.
2. Make sure your blazer has a nice shape to it. Women should not wear straight blazers under any circumstances. Try to buy a blazer that nips in at the waist around your narrowest part; this will make you look thinner and emphasize your curves.
3. If you have large breasts, wear blazers with multiple buttons to keep the "girls" at bay, or get a one-button jacket with a button that is higher up than normal.
4. Dress up your blazer with jewelry, a lacy top, and black pants, or dress it down with jeans, a v-neck shirt, and a long necklace.

I've included a few blazers that fit the criteria in this posting - shoot me an email if you want to know where to purchase them at!
