Can you give me any tips on how to pull off wearing a doublebreasted blazer? I love the style but I worry that I might be too broad to suit it.
There are a few different styles of double-breasted jackets, blazers and coats available this season. Some have belts and some do not, although typically a pea coat or double-breasted blazer/jacket does not. Fit is everything here so you must be able to close the buttons over your bust comfortably. Make sure the buttons are reinforced, too, and not falling off. Don’t forget you’ll have cool-weather layers underneath your blazer so allow for lots of extra room. Taking the time to try on different styles and sizes is really important and in my opinion, absolutely necessary. You’ll get an idea of what works and what doesn’t for your shape. Remember, hip-length blazers are a great style for everyday wear whilst knee-length coats add a level of sophistication to your look whilst adding extra warmth.
