ASK LJUBENKA

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.
