You Said: Yes to Hip Length Blazers

January 20th, 2009


asos-boyfriend-blazer_011909We asked: Would you wear Hip Length Blazers?

You said:  Yes to Hip Length Blazers, with a 61% to 39% vote.

Style tip? Shrunken blazers are great for elongating your legs and making you look taller, but long, hip length blazers can be more of a figure flattery challenge.  They’re a natural on short waisted women who want to elongate their torso, but for the rest of us, they can make our legs look shorter.  How do you wear the long, hip length blazer for maximum figure flattery?  Choose a blazer with a high armhole and a close fit.  Pair it with a narrow bottom, such as skinny pants or leggings and a miniskirt.  

Next question: Wide belts are great for defining your waistline, but they also make a strong statement.  Tell us, would you wear a Wide Belt?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    Thanks for this! I voted no but changed my mind perusing the fashion mags yesterday… and then started thinking about how to wear them.

    I’ve feared this style … but clearly that’s because I’ve always worn it wrong. Thanks for yet more stylistic clarity!

    You’re welcome! Glad that we could help provide some styling tips for this not-so-straightforward style.

    Ooh great for short-waisted women eh? I’ll have to try this out!

    They’re the perfect style for short-waisted women, as it visually lowers your waistline. Try one on :)
