BLAZERS FOR EVERY WOMAN
Women’s blazers are a transeasonal wardrobe staple that can instantly transform any look into one that’s smart and polished for any occasion. Once the domain of menswear, a suit jacket for women is fitted across the back and shoulders for a sharp silhouette and typically feature buttons and lapels.
From a navy casual blazer that’s open at the front and paired with denim and a white blouse to a tailored blazer for work that’s structured and exudes effortless sophistication – a blazer jacket is your ticket to flaunting impeccable style from the office to brunch with the girls!
HOW BLAZERS SHOULD FIT YOU
A classic suit jacket should fit nicely across the back and shoulders, giving you a sharp and flattering silhouette. The hemline should reach your hip bone and the sleeve should extend to the first joint on the thumb.
Oversized blazers have a longer, looser fit with more room for layering over jumpers and long-sleeved tops. You can add a softer touch to these blazers by wearing delicate jewellery and feminine tops in pretty colours and prints.
Comfortable blazers are key for getting the most use out of this staple piece. Blazers shouldn’t be too tight across the shoulders – you want a fitted look that still allows movement in the arms and body. Blazers with polyester in them have more stretch which makes them as superbly comfy as your favourite cardigan!
You can wear a blazer coat for many different occasions:
- As professional for the office or workplace
- As smart casual for looser work dress codes
- As day wear paired with jeans, skirts or shorts
- As evening wear slipped over a midi dress with heels
- As off-duty style with the sleeves rolled up for casual outings
STYLING YOUR BLAZER
The beauty of blazers is that they come in all sorts of designs for seamlessly transitioning from one occasion to the next. To keep things strictly business professional, pair a blazer with pants or a skirt in a matching hue and contrast it with a blouse or crisp shirt. A dainty necklace or bracelet will add a touch of refined elegance.
If your workplace is business casual, loosen up by layering your blazer over patterned tops or t-shirts. A blazer and t-shirt can easily transition from office to after-work drinks. When it comes to a blazer and pants, full-length pants are more formal, crop pants are summer trendy and leisurewear pants combine business and comfort for the ultimate work-from home combination!
For an off-duty style, blazers with dresses are an unbeatable match and can give floaty dresses more shape and definition. If you’re after a lightweight jacket for the warmer months, a cotton or linen blazer will be breathable, while white blazers are fresh and look striking when paired with bold prints and colours. You can find 100% cotton blazers at Suzanne Grae that will take you from shopping spree to dinner date in a flash. Wearing a blazer with shorts or a blazer and skirt is another fun way to include this staple into your summer wardrobe and adds playfulness into a smart casual outfit.
Go for thicker materials during the winter. A knit blazer and full-length pants can be worn with ankle boots or heels while a check blazer can be layered over plain tops and denim for a more laid back weekend look.
WEARING A BLAZER WITH JEANS
Blazers can give more formality to a casual outfit and transform a pair of jeans into a snappy outfit that’s ideal for everything from the office to the shopping mall. Choose a black blazer for work if you want to keep things more professional or slip on a bright pink blazer for a pop of colour that can be paired with a t-shirt and jeans for wearing at home or out and about.

ARE LADIES BLAZERS IN FASHION?
When it comes to timeless coats & jackets, blazers for women have never gone out of style and are still the quickest and classiest way to dress up any outfit for any occasion. It’s up to you which style you choose. A collarless blazer captures the latest trend while button blazers and double breasted blazers are reliable favourites.
A black blazer is versatile and will go with everything while print blazers let you have a bit of fun. Classic pinstripe, plaid, houndstooth or subtle check prints adds sophisticated flair to office ensembles when balanced with a plain white shirt or blouse and dark trousers.
ARE BLAZERS FLATTERING?
Whether you go for cropped, oversized or structured, a blazer will give you definition through the shoulders and back for a sharp silhouette that looks good on all shapes and sizes. A fitted blazer will tuck you in and highlight the waist while longline blazers and oversized blazers have a looser fit and give you more room to layer over jumpers and long sleeve tops.
