The Blazer – A Modern Day Wardrobe Essential
At Christian English, we believe that a great blazer should be designed to compliment and expand your existing smart casual style. Considered as a staple garment, a classic blazer is the one item of clothing that works hardest for you in your wardrobe.
Christian English blazers are great for use with the smart casual dress code and acts as that perfect piece when a suit is too much and when a sweater is too little. For example a grey blazer can be worn with dark chinos and black shirt for a perfect Smart Casual look (see image) and can also be worn with jeans and white t-shirt for a great Saturday-afternoon-chilling-with-friends look…
And Ladies, you aren’t exempt from the need to own a blazer! It’s an incredibly sassy item when worn correctly and tailored to your size and shape! Sleek and form fitting always works best – look for gathered shoulders to show off the smallest part of the body, your waist. The blazer should frame the face and sit comfortably around the neck. Wear with a pair of jeans, or over an elegant mini dress for a night out! Great for interviews and sophisticated first dates!
When choosing your blazer fabric, consider colours like Navy Blue, Grey or a shade of brown. These are classic colours that are versatile enough to be worn with a wide variety of other clothes. Also consider stripes if you want to look slimmer, or a window-pane check with patch pockets if you’re going for a more casual design. For style conscious individuals, the blazer is a classic and important wardrobe staple – it’s a modern day essential!
