Womens Blazers



Women's Blazers

When boys first wore jackets as part of their school uniforms, they probably didn't realize they would be trend setters for women. But soon the modern women's blazer evolved, creating one of the most versatile options in a woman's wardrobe. Follow these steps to buy the blazer you need.

1. Choose from the many different looks available in women's fashions. Although a blazer can be worn in different situations, you'll find various styles exist, from the denim or novelty blazer to the classic blazer with narrow lapels.

2. Go with a classic single-breasted blazer in a neutral color when you want your blazer to serve many purposes. Dress up or down with other women's separates and accessories. Buying two blazers, one for winter and one for summer, provides more options.

3. Make certain that you buy a good quality blazer by checking the sewing. Look for a good strong stitch that holds. Except for some summer blazers, most quality-made blazers include a full lining.

4. Check for a good fit. Women's blazers should fit snugly without being overly tight or loose at the shoulders. A curved seam at the torso often provides a better fit. Some blazers feature a vertical slit at the back for more comfort.

5. Consider the wide range of colors and other style options. Blazers come single or double-breasted with different types of collars and lapels. The length of a blazer also varies from waist to above the knee.

6. Study the fabric options. Blazers made from silk, wool, linen, cotton, polyester, gabardine, knit and fabric blends all affect the look and fit of a blazer. Wool and silk blazers may need special care such as dry-cleaning.

7. Look at what your budget allows you to spend. You're better spending more on a good all-around blazer than buying several of poor quality.
