Waist length or cropped has been the only style to surface in recent years, but the longer blazer is making a comeback! Kind of like John Travolta, only way cooler. The big difference this time around is that designers have finally realized that if you make a garment this long, it must fit you properly. Remove shoulder pads, add darts. For this great piece to not overwhelm you, no matter what you size, it must skim the body. If you have a larger heiny, do not wear this. It will actually, just like tying a cardigan around your waist, accentuate the not so positive. It skims your body just until the point where it hits your bum where it then juts out. Not a good look.
Gwyneth Paltrow, a true fashion icon, is showing how a simple blazer can tone down the look of any outfit. Even her friend Madonna’s old “Like a Virgin” dress:) I actually own a dress that is quite similar, but it is not for the fashion faint of heart. Own it, your look that is.
