Wardrobe Staple: Blazers

Blazers are an essential in every wardrobe. A blazer can instantly add formality and sophistication to an outfit. Whether you are going to a business meeting, college interview, or any other formal event, just put on your blazer for an instant touch of poise and elegance. Here are a few tips on finding the perfect blazer for your body shape.

DO: choose blazers that have some curve at the waist, go for a dark color
DON’T: choose one with emphasized shoulders, wear them shrunken.

DO: opt for a double breast, try prints and colors
DON’T: wear them oversized, choose a long cut that ends at the hips (wearing it with a skirt maybe a more Islamic option for this length).

DO: wear them tailored, choose single breasted
DON’T: wear boxy shapes, get a striped blazer
