How to... Ace Wearing a Blazer

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Aug. 29, 2012) - Timeless styles are hard to come by. So when a fashion statement arrives that's chic, versatile and available in an abundance of colours, prints and materials it's worth taking note. Blazers are a fantastic addition to plus size clothing and petite wardrobes alike, so read on for some tips to ace wearing one:

On a first date

A lot of people assume that wearing a blazer is restricted to the hours of 9-5. This is not true; a blazer is the perfect outer garm for a first date. Their shapely fit and lapel collar mean they'll give your body a strong outline. It'll make you look confident, even if you're really nervous inside!

To Work

Gone are the days when a blazer worn to work had to be black, navy and regimented. If you want to jazz your work wardrobe up then opt for thick pinstripes and bright colours, which can be toned down with neutral coloured plus size dresses. If you do work in a corporate environment where there's not much room for movement on clothing, you can still make your blazer work for you. Opt for silk patterned lining and turn up cuffs that show this gorgeous lining off.

On a night out

If you're hitting the town and there's a chill in the air a blazer is the perfect choice. Sophisticated and sleek, it will finish your outfit off just perfectly. They go best with wedge heels and cute tops for a really glam, girl about town vibe.

Whether you're off for lunch with the girls, an interview, or even want to look glam at the airport, then a blazer is the way to go!
