Choosing The Right Blazer for Your Body Shape: Tips for Finding the Perfect Blazer

Blazers are a necessity for any woman who wants to look put together, but the sometimes complicated and numerous styles of blazers can be difficult to choose from.

For example, there is the classic single-breasted blazer with one button on the front and two buttons on each cuff. There is also double breasted style where there are four buttons in total: two at the waist and two below that.

Some people prefer not having any buttons or more than four while others like to have just one or three. The length of these varies as well: some come down past your hips while others only cover your upper torso.

With all this variation it's easy to get overwhelmed when shopping for a new blazer! However, after reading this article, you will have the expertise needed to purchase a stylish new blazer in no time.

Elegant Blazer for Women

How to Find the Right Blazer for Your Body Shape

First off, you must determine your body type. If you are petite or tall, this may affect which blazers fit best on your frame. You should also take into consideration whether you're small chested or broader in build - these characteristics could affect what kind of shape looks good on you.

A few examples of common shapes that women come in are hourglass, pear, rectangle and inverted triangle . Once you know what shape works with your frame the most, then try finding a color, pattern and material that suit your personality!

Don't be afraid to mix it up once in a while - this will keep your wardrobe diverse.

Hourglass Shape

If you are an hourglass shape, then chances are you're probably pretty happy about it because this body type is the most ideal to many people.

This means that you have a balanced waist and bust size with somewhat of an overall smaller build. This proportionate figure can easily be accentuated by wearing blazers that actually draw attention towards the smallest part of your body.

Blazers with V-shaped patterns, such as vertical lines or large vents, will help broaden your shoulders so don't shy away from them if this sounds like you!

If these shapes look good on you but aren't quite doing all they could to slim your midsection, then try pairing them with matching slacks or skirts to complete the ensemble!

Pear Shaped  

The pear shaped body is a bit more tricky to dress because you have a smaller top and a larger bottom. This means that vertical patterns and solid colors tend not to look as flattering on your body type, even though they may fit well in other areas.

Blazers with square buttons can add volume to your breasts making them appear bigger, while blazers with V-shaped patterns will make your shoulders appear wider.

Single Breasted Blazer

In order to achieve balance in your figure, try wearing blazers made from light fabrics such as cotton - it will give the illusion of equal proportions by creating an overall slimmer figure. Rectangle Shaped  

If you are rectangular shaped, then chances are you have a bit more luck with blazers because you have an average waist and bust size.

This means that just about any type of blazer will look good on you so it's up to you to decide whether or not you want to play them up. For example, if you are short then try wearing brightly colored blazers with floral patterns so that they catch the attention of those around you.

Or if your legs are usually what people notice first, then why not wear something more fitted?

Inverted Triangle Shaped

If you are inverted triangle shaped, then don't be discouraged because this body type can still wear any color or pattern they please!

You may find that patterned blazers fit better on your body than solid colored ones so don't be afraid to mix and match.

However, if you happen to have a smaller bust or waist then it may be best to keep these areas subtle so that you don't draw too much attention away from the larger part of your body.

This means keeping patterns small and wearing blazers with less buttons.

Rectangle Shaped

If you are rectangular shaped, then chances are you have a bit more luck with blazers because you have an average waist and bust size.

This means that just about any type of blazer will look good on you so it's up to you to decide whether or not you want to play them up.

For example, if you are short try wearing brightly colored blazers with floral patterns so that they catch the attention of those around you.

Or if your legs are usually what people notice first, then why not wear something more fitted?

Your figure can easily be balanced out by wearing blazers that actually draw attention towards the smallest part of your body. Blazers with V-shaped patterns, such as vertical lines or large vents, will help broaden your shoulders so don't shy away from them if this sounds like you!
