Blazer Fashion

Blazer Fashion

No matter what the weather, Blazers are always in trend. The best thing about Blazers is that you can buy many different fabric blazers to suit any weather conditions. Another thing which is great, is that Blazers will instantly give a preppy/smart look to any casual or formal outfit.

A recent Blazer I have purchased is from Zara Man. This gorgeous Blazer is perfect for this cold weather as its made from a two cotton blend of white and black fabric, Blazer (pictured below), cost a reasonable £59.99 and is very comforting and warm. Overall, a perfect piece to accompany a trip out on the town, a pair of black jeans, coloured brogues and a cotton shirt would be ideal.

Another blazer which I also own is from high end store ‘Reiss’ which was on sale from £250 to £120. I literally picked up the last one at my local store. This luxurious emerald velvet blazer is so stunning and rich in colour. It is made for a cocktail hour or an occasion out, a ball/prom or wedding. I have been saving this blazer for the right occasion, which I would probably stick to the classic black trousers and a white shirt. (Pictured below)

Another Blazer from Topman is a very classic casual style. This Harris Tweed Blazer works really well with a casual look, a pair of blue jeans and a blue shirt. I pair this with brown or dark purple skinny trousers and a pair of brown brogues.

Blazers are very on trend and I recommend all men to own at least one Blazer. No matter what occasion, a Blazer will help you look and feel smart & confident! Let me know what you think about these blazers!

Current Trend – Hate it or Love it

CURRENT TREND: LOVE IT/HATE IT?

I honestly think this style of jacket (Denim and Leather Sleeves) is very on trend at the moment. This one is from Zara for £50 and I love it. It’s a very flattering jacket and very unique.

Leather Sleeves are very on trend for men and women and especially in this cold winter. There’s nothing better than dressing cool in the winter. You can pair this style of jacket with t-shirts to a thin cardigan to add an extra layer. The interior keeps you warm surprisingly and flatters most body shapes. Could look good whether you have a muscular or slim/lean physique.

It’s all about how you pair it. Wear this with a graphic/patterned t-shirt or a wooly cardigan. Black jeans are a must, since you don’t want to wear denim on denim ( there is a way denim x2 can work, but not here), contrast the torso and bottom to make it look cooler. Since the jacket has embellishments of studs, try not to overwhelm with more jewellery, allowing the jacket to make a statement alone.

Many people love and hate this jacket, but I think when paired with the perfect outfit, it can look cool and stylish. For sure a jacket which will get people talking (hopefully positively)! Be inspired!
