Blazin Blazers

16th September 2013 | Posted in Womens & Maison Scotch by H. Simpson
Blazers these days can be worn with just about anything and can even just be a glorified cardigan! Each different style of blazer has its own duty to turn a look a certain way. For example a blazer that is quite heavy and has large lapels would be worn in a workplace or to an interview or wedding such as like the Maison Scotch 30840 Blazer in New Updated Fit, whereas the Maison Scotch Rock Blazer With Beading Detail is a lot different to this and can be slipped on over the top of a t-shirt as a cardigan would, yet this is still a much better way of smartening up an outfit. As blazers are changing every season, sometimes its hard to define what's a blazer, jacket, coat or cardigan, especially when they incorporate elements from each other like the ones below.

This should be worn to a very special occasion. The cut and the style mean this blazer is always going to be for smart use, its not going to go baggy or tatty and would look a bit out of place worn casually. I'd wear this with smart trousers rather than a skirt.

This one is similar in that it has the same cut as the one above and won't lose shape.

This one is great for Christmas with the added sparkle! I'd wear this with skinny jeans, a basic top and a pair of black Uggs! I don't think it really needs to be dressed up as the blazer is acting as a smart cardigan. I love the striped lining as well which means you can turn the cuffs up to show a patterned contrast.

Going to back to how a blazer is defined, what would you call this one? Is it a blazer because of the straight cut, an outdoor jacket or a thick cardigan? Sometimes its the cut and the fit that distinguish what it is but either way, a blazer is smart and a classic; and a bit like a denim jacket, always an occasion to wear one to and never needing to throw it away.

This is what people instantly think of when they hear the word 'blazer'. This is what they originally were in the first place and as they've become popular in recent years, they've transformed and developed with the times. However this version of a blazer is still used and not just for work. Pairing with just about any outfit, it can instantly smarten and sharpen up the look. The standard original blazer now comes in many different colours, especially pastel colours, but a classic black goes with just about anything.

This is an example of this style of blazer being worn over a dress. Its not just work wear skirts or trousers that this jacket needs to be paired with. The masculinity of the blazer against the femininity of the dress creates a cool edge to the outfit. This would also work well for a 'desk to dancefloor' look, simply by taking the blazer off later on and revealing just the dress ready for the night out.

This is a Chanel inspired jacket that would really smarten an outfit up. I'd wear this to an occasion such as a Christening or wedding. I think its the tweed material that gives off a luxury feel and stands out from the rest. Like this one, the original Chanel version had no collar, frayed edges and two slit pockets each side.

Another example of how to wear a tweed jacket even if its not for a special occasion. This one has been self styled and added with a belt to make it more casual and self customised.

This is more of a cardigan but Maison Scotch have called it a blazer. This is a much more casual, laid back version and very versatile. Being a little more casual means it could be worn with literally any outfit: a dress, skirt or trousers! Note the added charm detail that Maison Scotch add onto most of their garments, making them more individual and unique.

Look how much difference adding this blazer over the top makes. Without it, it'd just be a vest top and jeans combo but adding this on top transforms the look into something else.

This blazer could be given quite a few looks, either way, its very edgy. Over a plain black dress to jazz it up a little or with shiny wet look leggings and a black outfit for a more biker/rock look. Also loving the on trend stud detailing on the front, I'd match my accessories with this and keep it gold. The thickness of this blazer enables you to wear it instead of a coat/jacket such as in the image below this.

This has been used as a jacket as well as a smart blazer. I like that she's added a splash of brightness to her dull outfit by incorporating some colour. Just because the Winter season is making the days longer and nights darker doesn't mean everything you wear has to be dark and grey! The best colours to incorporate into your outfit this season are deep oranges, reds, greens, purples and of course gold and silver!

Aside from Maison Scotch, here are a few other blazers that would do the trick... This blazer is a new take on the standard, stereotypical blazer. Adding layering as a form of decoration, the blazer has a twist and has jazzed things up a bit. Add a style like this to your outfit when you want something a little more fancy!

This is a great example of how the above blazer can be worn. Though it can be seen as a little too much, if standing out is what you like, then go for it with this look.
I went to a Christening recently and noticed how many people were wearing a blazer in the style of this one over their outfits. I'd wear this one of two ways; either over a dress with heels or a smart pair of leggings, heels and a fancy top. Either way, I'd roll the sleeves up so that they are 3/4 length.
