Blazers

I have a theory ... any outfit can be jazzed up with the simple addition of a blazer. I bought mine for £15 (reduced from £100) at House of Fraser in early December. I struggle with blazers because I have long arms.

Inspiration from my favourite source - Pinterest! I adore the top right of shirt/jumper/blazer. Will copy that next week!




Here's how I've worn my blazer in the past for a quick smarten up a dull outfit:



Looking forward to playing with the blazer more. I own a plain black one, a pinstripe one and burgundy wool one - watch this space for blazer dress up!

Do you have a blazer? How do you wear yours?

  1. I have a few Blazers but I never feel quite right in them as I'm not sure they're really me. I love them on other people so I must try to wear them more. You look fab in yours, Fiona. Lynne xx

    1. I have been like that for years ie 'they're not me' but once I start to wear them I feel more confident in them

  3. I'm wearing a mango one today to smarten up black joggers and a cashmere sweater - I find the right shape really slimming too!

    1. I agree with regards to the shape - a good cut can do wonders!

  5. Looking great in your blazers and some fab inspiration Fiona. I have three blazers which I love but barely wear...I think I just throw the same stuff on too much...I am getting those blazers out more often from now on xx

  6. Ooh I love a blazer! I've got about 6 or 7, some smart, some casual but love them all. My latest purchase is a navy tweed Joules/Boden style blazer from Debenhams - 50% off & the last one was my size, it was meant to be!! ;)

  7. I'm have a few but fail to wear them as often as I should! I need a job & will then get more use out of them! I just received a fab black one & know it goes with loads in my wardrobe so may just have to smarten up my act! x

  8. I love Blazers but they don't really love me sadly. Great to throw on in spring and autumn to smarten up jeans. I have a black one but it never gets worn sadly x

  9. I love, love, love blazers and agree that they can smarten up any outfit - which is why Spring & Autumn have always been my favourite seasons! Happy New Year xx
