The Belted Blazer

Dec 17, 2019

A cinch of a decision to add instant effortless style, wear a slightly or significantly oversized blazer, and wrap a belt around your waist to create a silhouette.

As shown in today’s Style Inspiration post, the pairing of a blazer and a belt can be worn casually with denim or pants or dressed up over a dress/skirt. Especially when the shoulders of your blazer are quite pronounced, draw the eye in by cinching your waist as it will create a slender, elongated figure.

Shop oversized blazers or simply visit the consignment shop men’s wear section for unique, and larger than traditional sizes. And while you are in the men’s section, pick up a few belts as well.

  1. I really like this look, and have yet to try it! I have worn blazer’s for ever with jeans. Maybe it will help my more straight figure look a bit more curvy perhaps. Thanks Shannon.
    And I forgot to comment yesterday on your tree and how adorable it is! I really like the pinecone ornaments you made, just simple and lovely!

    1. Tamra, I think you will find this style to be simple and as you said, add a few extra curves and a beautiful silhouette. 🙂 Enjoying finding the jacket that works best and makes you smile when you pull it on. Thank you as well for checking out yesterday’s episode of the podcast. It was a fun project to pull together, and certainly does make me smile as it is all done and adorned. Wishing you the happiest of holidays. I truly appreciate your time and readership. All my best, xoxo. Shannon
