The Best Blazer for Your Body Type

January 31, 2013

Want to lose five pounds, grow two inches, or whittle a waist instantly? Copy these street-style pros and do a jacket with skinny jeans.

If you're athletic, try a soft blazer in a fun color.

"I have square shoulders, so I wear jackets with feminine details to avoid looking like a tomboy. I also never really got boobs! Color up top helps."
—Swantje Diepenhorst, 32

If you're petite, wear a blazer that's not too short, not too long.

"I'm 5'3" and curvy, with hips and a bottom. I like that this jacket hits just below my butt. And dark pants and heels always make you look slimmer."
—Perrine Valat, 23

If you have a tummy, wear a structured tuxedo blazer.

"I have two kids and a bit of a muffin top. The length and structure of this jacket are key, and the black lapels take focus off my middle."
—Liz Ebert, 32

Will you be rocking a blazer like any of these chic ladies? What style will you look for? For more outfit ideas check out these suggestions from our favorite style bloggers.
