When it comes to men’s fashion what I am all for the guy I am dressing, is that he looks smart but also feels comfortable. That’s why I LOVE blazers so much. The perfect blazer is casual but always has tailoring details & looks good with either dressier trousers or jeans/corduroys. A blazer jacket can get you a long way, and it should be on your essentials list if you want your wardrobe to work and be cool.
When buying a new blazer this fall look for something that works on your body – don’t do a slim fitting style if your mid-section looks like the belly of a 6-month pregnant woman for example. Choose a color that works with the stuff you already own and pay attention to the details: tailoring, lining, buttons, and how flattering the lapels are on YOU.
If the look you’re after is smart casual, pair your blazer with jeans and a polo shirt – like this idea from NEXT. If you prefer a more rock-n-roll look get something sleeker in black or charcoal (i.e. All Saints blazer) and paired it with a vintage type shirt, a vest and black pants. If you are the posh type and you want your blazer to take you straight from the board room to your country home, get something like this one from Paul Smith.
Choose something that suits your body and life-style, & it will be your go-to item for many occasions this fall/winter. Wanna bet?
