The Importance of the Blazer in 2010 Fashion

The blazer has been a staple clothing item for both men’s and women’s wardrobes for several years now. One of the most versatile pieces of clothing anyone can own, putting on a blazer can instantly dress up an outfit, whilst they can just as easily make you look casual, yet always retaining that fashionable air.

Particularly prominent in 2010, the blazer can be teamed with a vast array of different fashion items and pieces of clothing that most would consider to be standard pieces in their wardrobe to produce some stunning complete outfits.

Take the boyfriend blazer style that is so popular right now as an example. As with various 2010 fashion styles, it is important that if you want to pull off the boyfriend blazer look properly that you purchase a blazer which is one size too big. One of the ideas behind this is too make you look as feminine as possible, portraying the traditional image of the smaller girl wearing her bigger boyfriend’s clothes. This is helped along by the most important part of the boyfriend blazer look, which is to always remember to roll up your sleeves and show off your sleek wrists.

Generally speaking, most casual clothes that you have in your wardrobe (as well as some more formal clothes) will work well with the blazer. Skinny jeans, t-shirts and skirts above the knee all look good and the entire image can be finished off perfectly with a large handbag.

What many people like about the blazer is that it is suitable for almost anyone. Whether you wear plus size clothing or find that a pair of size 6 jeans are loose and regardless of whether you are looking for a somewhat formal outfit for an at the theatre or are simply looking to hit the shops in town, blazers are suitable for all occasions.

Blazers can have a particular impact on women who tend to wear plus size clothing. One of the easiest ways to give the effect that you are a dress size or two smaller than you actually are is to wear a dark cardigan or light jacket. Although both of these may have always looked good, neither is particularly fashionable. Wearing a blazer, however, especially one that is tapered in the right places without being too small, can not only make you look slim, but will also turn heads as it makes you look particularly fashionable.

If you’ve never thought about wearing a blazer in the past for whatever reason, but are now thinking that maybe they are suitable for you and are contemplating purchasing one, 2010 is definitely the time to do so. Available in such a wide array of different sizes and varying styles and as they are so popular, you will not have to worry about either finding a blazer that fits you or standing out too much from the crowd, something which some women find a daunting experience when wearing the latest fashion trends to hit the high streets.
