As we look back at the ages and stages of Fashion and the direction that it has taken as, who would of thought that we would be reliving the 80’s like the legwarmer, the off the shoulder “Flash Dance” sweater, ripped jeans and of course those Shoulder Pads.
Men’s wear has been at its strongest in 2009 and we will be seeing all forms of it throughout 2010, like tailored suits, The Tuxedo jacket and Pleated pants.
Words of my Fashion Idol….Coco Chanel
“ONE SHOULDN’T SPEND ALL ONE’S TIME DRESSING.
ALL ONE NEEDS ARE TWO OR THREE SUITS,
AS LONG AS THEY, AND EVERYTHING
TO GO WITH THEM, ARE PERFECT.”
Think of Blazers and Jackets we all have one or two in our wardrobes that have stood the test of time and have made their way back into style….Menswear-Tailored, Boyfriend, Military and Peplum. It’s time to bring them back out ladies, but before you run to your closet with the excitement of Christmas, there are a few rules we need to follow so we don’t end up in the What Not To Wear pages.
Shoulder pads should no more than an inch thick; although some things should be left in the 80’s! With the boyfriend blazers note that they’re meant to fit more generously with the idea that you’ve stolen your boyfriend’s jacket. Tailored blazers are to be worn snug to the body and any length applies. As for the military jacket this look is best kept at the hip.
You can pair your Blazer with so many items. From spring dresses, jeans, skirts and of course tailored pants….look for the Soft Pleated Pant for spring to update your style.
In closing have fun and enjoy your flash back to the 80’s!
