“Suits are only for men,” said no one, ever. If you’re thinking twice about rocking a suited outfit because you’re afraid it might be too boyish– don’t! Suits are for everyone and there’s a look for every style. Feminine styles are also offered to soften that edginess and masculinity.
One of the most important aspects of every suit is the blazer. While suit trousers are easy to pick, nothing changes the look of a suit like a blazer does! So, how can you find a blazer that’s both fitting for your style and completes your suited-look?
Whatever your style is — feminine, glamorous, casual, or you simply want to power dress for the boardroom, here are the 4 types of blazers for each style:
Of course, many would try for a feminine blazer to soften that masculine look that suits might have.
So if you’re aiming to find one, look out for tailored, waist-cinching fits and little to no padded-shoulders for a softer look. This blue blazer from Keepsake has a tie-waist design as well as low neckline that helps to bring out the femininity of the blazer.
