Trends and styles come and go. You never know what the fashion industry will bring. The latest style for women that you must try out: blazers and statement jackets. There are so many styles, colours, and lengths to choose from that will have you looking and feeling great. One size does not fit all when it comes to styles, so be open-minded when it comes to choosing a statement jacket. Here are a few tips on the best ways to use this hot new style.
The first technique in adding a blazer to your wardrobe is to add a patterned blazer to your solid print shirt or dress. Try leopard, cheetah, or zebra, if you are drawn to prints inspired by the animal kingdom. Or if geometric prints are your style, try polka dots, stripes, or zig zags. These are just a few ideas. Using any of these prints will bring your look up a notch.
SHOP PATTERNED BLAZERS:
Second, try layering your outfit for a more casual look. Put your favourite blazer on top of a cute t-shirt, either plain or printed. Just be sure to wear a solid print jacket so that you don’t over-do it with the prints. This creates a great look that usually wouldn’t pair well together.

What about those times you want to wear your favourite dress, but it’s a little cool outside? Not a problem! Simply throw on a long-sleeved jacket that will add some style and keep you warm at the same time. Multi-purpose accessories are always a good thing!
Another tip for wearing a statement jacket is to wear contrasting colours. For example, wear a grey jacket with light-coloured or white shirt and pants. Doing so is a simple way to make your whole outfit pop and makes a great fashion statement. And what could be better – simple and fashionable!
SHOP MY OUTFIT:
An out-of-the-box look for the statement jacket for women is to buy a jacket from the men’s department. The smaller cut of men’s clothes really adds an edgy look to a soft-looking outfit. This idea is great for those that have a bit of a tomboy streak in them, and want a soft yet tough look to their wardrobe.
There are so many great ideas for adding a statement jacket to your closet. This fashion piece is very versatile and can be found in different colours, styles, patterns, and lengths. Try some of these ideas or all of them. The ones you choose will depend on your own style and the mood you are in. They can make your look sophisticated, sassy, or sweet, depending on what you pair it with. Adding a statement jacket is so easy to change the look of your outfit. So go ahead and try adding a few to your clothesline, and see how versatile they can be.
