The sun is shining, the grass is green…and I am cold. It has to be a really humid 20+ for me to be able to go jacketless and in Vancouver, there is always a bit of a cool breeze that can leave a chill. Enter The Casual Blazer. Casual blazers should be able to be worn to work, but suit blazers can’t always be worn casually. The perfect casual blazer in my opinion has the following qualities:
Collarless. Collarless blazers are the epitome of minimalistic, chic style. Their unobtrusive design around the neck and collarbone provide a wonderful opportunity to showcase an elegance through the neck that ballet dancers demonstrate perfectly.
Slightly oversized fit. By oversized I am not meaning Michael Jackson-style. Think in vertical lines. It should fall straight down your shoulder and straight down the body. If you can fit a thin to medium-sized knit underneath, it is the perfect size.
Buttonless. The purpose of this piece is to keep the breeze off your arms and not necessarily to keep the wind out, as it is still spring…
