I used to think the whole blazer-as-an-essential thing was something just for magazines, I found it hard to believe that an item as corporate, could be integrated into my day to day wardrobe. However, recently on a whim, I bought one. Mainly because I had a last minute meeting with a very very corporate client and was scrambling around in a mall working out a way to dress up a pair of jeans with holes in the knees. The blazer passed with flying colours, and I realised that a girl never completely tires of a bit of padding (on the shoulder and… elsewhere). Over the next few months I also came to terms with what I had been missing, apparently the blazer is the best safety net you can get in the form of a piece of clothing, it takes everything you wear up a notch, whether it be a pair of shorts or your plane sweats. And even more importantly, it helps you feel better when you, in fact, feel rubbish. This simple ensemble has turned into a bit of a hangover cure for me – a burger, fries and a blazer. Give it an hour and you’ll feel human again.
Anyway, in the event you plan on having a big night this weekend, perhaps you need to be forearmed with a blazer? Atleast to thrown on over your pyjamas when you go for brunch in the morning. Put it at the front of your closet, just to be sure. And if you don’t have one currently, head over to my article for eHow where I give you 7 tips for finding the right one. Happy Friday guys!
