It's safe to say that the blazer is "in." Not just "in" for formal and semi-formal styles, but even in casual wear. Dressy blazers can actually dress up a casual look or add some class to a casual look. And with Fall/Autumn coming up in the United States, having a blazer is not a bad thing to have in your collection. The fashionable lady will find blazers to be quite chic. It doesn't matter if you have any career blazers or casual blazers, they are not a bad piece of outerwear to have in your collection, and many different ladies have found many ways to take a blazer and dramatically change up their looks. That's the impact these blazers can have with any sort of outfit.
This blog post is a look at blazers in fashion. It is primarily about blazers for females.
LATEST UPDATE(S):OCT 2 2011 - added more inspirations
^ from: thisnext.com - Blazers. They aren't just for formal outfits anymore!
^ from: realsimple.com - If you've read my blog post on Boyfriend Fashion, boyfriend blazers are certainly "in" for those into the whole boyfriend look.
^ from: chictopia.com - Rompers/Playsuits can be cute. Now try wearing a blazer with rompers/playsuits! The end result is what this young lady is wearing.
A blazer can drastically add a different character to a look as a whole. They can either add a new character to a look, or enhance one's outfit. I have to admit that blazers (especially in the context of feminine blazers) have been to my liking in recent times. Here is a video of how one girl styles one blazer in two different ways:
If any of the bloggers themselves are reading this post, I salute all of you. Welcome to John's Blog Space!
Blazer Inspiration: My Silk Fairytale.No one is a bigger fan of blazers than Alina of "My Silk Fairytale." The Romanian fairytale fashion princess is ready to share some of her style with all of you. And really, I could go with almost ANY of her outfit posts because she wears blazers quite often in her pictures. I will feature a few to showcase the beauty of blazers as well as how blazers can make a casual look a dressy one.
Alina demonstrates the beauty of blazers in "Pink Lady" on My Silk Fairytale, and she makes a casual look classy in "On the Edge" on My Silk Fairytale.
Blazer Inspiration: Extra Petite.Extra Petite is a petite fashion blog mostly pertaining to formal and semi-formal fashions. The blog's creator is a lady named Jean, and she's very much about classy fashions for the workplace for petites. You can imagine that a blazer is very much a key fashion piece for semi-formal and formal-type fashions. For this inspiration, however, Jean shares some Summer casual looks with a blazer. Take a look at "Summertime Business Casual" on Extra Petite.
Blazer Inspiration: Really Petite.Let's go from one beautiful petite to another. Meet Annie of "Really Petite." This sweet petite is eye candy sporting a camel-colored blazer. What I like about this post is that she wears her blazer both semi-formally and formally. See Annie wear this camel blazer in two ways in "Lookbook: LOFT Camel blazer" on Really Petite.
Blazer Inspiration: Pearls, Lace, and Ruffles.The blazer worn by Dee of "Pearls, Lace, and Ruffles" compliments a sexy dress for this inspiration. A chic dress is worn with a blazer and some pretty fierce heels. Let this Irish beauty show you what a blazer can do when one wears a dress and some fierce shoes can do when you check out "ootd: coral crush" on Pearls, Lace, and Ruffles.
Blazer Inspiration: Principessa Gabriella.The pretty plus-size Principessa Gabirella shown off one look in a pink blazer she wore in an older blog post. One of the 17 looks in this featured blog posts features Gabriella in a pink blazer. Look down to about look #7 to see Gabriella in a blazer in "Spring 2011 Fashion/Outfits So Far" on Principessa Gabriella.
Blazer Inspiration: tuolomee.In her recent vacation to Chicago, Tiffany of tuolomee shows some classy chic going with a nice shirt and an animal print skirt. Most relevant to this blog post is the nice blazer she wears along with her chic heels. Check out "chicago." on tuolomee.
Blazer Inspiration: Glisters and Blisters.Time to take you to Indonesia and an awesome blogger named Michelle. For this inspiration, Michelle goes with an ethnic print blazer to compliment an olive green top and some navy blue high-waist shorts. Without the blazer, it would be a dull look. See how much of a difference adding this colorful blazer is by checking out "IKAT" on Glisters and Blisters.
Blazer Inspiration: KARLA'S CLOSET.I almost feel completely sorry for not mentioning certain other blogs I follow. I don't want to feature only the ones I commonly make mention to. I sometimes want to try to mention others to show my vast array of Blogger/Blogspot blogs I follow. Anyhow... KARLA'S CLOSET is not a blog I visit often, but I do respect the young blogger for her fine work. Did you know that blue is my favorite color? Of course, you do. Well, Karla goes with a dark gray blazer to compliment her lovely blue dress, black tights, and unusual high-heel wedge pumps. The end result can be seen with "Cerulean" on KARLA'S CLOSET.
Blazer Inspiration: suki pooki.suki pooki is a cute name for a blog. Two of her blog posts feature her in a blazer. You will see two posts to show off two different blazers from the Canadian-based Japanese blogger. First, she goes with a very cute scalloped blazer in ~ small reveal & ootd ~ on suki pooki. The other post I will feature is Suki in a more traditional blazer. While her outfit is casual, the blazer instantly adds chic and classy appeal. See for yourself in "~ make up ~" on suki pooki.
Blazer Inspirations: Modemoiselle.Though her blog is mostly in Italian, Myriam's blazer beauty translates well in any language. It's a mix of chic and casual as she wears a white blazer to compliment her top, shorts, and boots. Say "Ciao!" to Myriam and her style by checking out "Something New" on Modemoiselle.
Blazer Inspiration: Miss Kwong(ADDED: September 6, 2011) Miss Kwong schools you in style as she wears a lovely dress paired with some cute peep-toe booties. The highlight of the entire outfit is her scarf, but she also wears a blazer. It's blazer style from a stylish teacher as you check out "Purple x Scarf" on Miss Kwong.
Blazer Inspirtaion: the autumn castle.(ADDED: October 2, 2011) Have you come across Aelie of "the autumn castle?" If not, the young Australian blogger showcases black and white (and studs) pretty well. A classy blazer compliments an otherwise very casual look in "blazers" on the autumn castle.
