Add a splash of style to any outfit with a women's blazer

There’s no doubt about it. Adding a blazer to your outfit instantly adds some style and pizzazz. You can teem a women's blazer with jeans and a t-shirt for a more casual look or pop one on over your work outfit to add a more professional look.

Blazers for women offer a good deal of versatility as they can be worn for so many different occasions. They’re also the ideal addition to a spring and autumn wardrobe when it’s not quite cold enough for a winter coat.

Getting the best fit

If you’re buying online, you want to ensure the blazer you choose delivers the look that you want, you have to make sure that the fit is correct. To start with, the shoulder seams should sit on the end of your shoulder and not extend over it. You can choose either a full-length sleeve or a three-quarter sleeve for a more casual look. When choosing a full-length sleeve, make sure the sleeve is neither too long or too short.

Choosing the right style is also important and relates to the look you want to achieve. A more tailored look is ideal for professional wear, or choose a looser style to team with jeans and a t-shirt. For example, choose an open front blazer if you have a larger bust size as this will be more flattering. If you have an hourglass shape or want more definition at the waist, you might like to choose a belted blazer.

Not sure whether to get single breasted or double breasted? A double-breasted blazer tends to be more formal but can also add extra bulk. On the other hand, a single-breasted fitted blazer can be stylish for both formal and casual occasions.

Whatever style you choose, make sure you take your measurements so that the blazer you end up with gives you the look that you want. There are plenty of options available on eBay so start shopping today.
