Blazers have been a staple of business women for a while, but this fall we see the Blazer trend being worn by everyone and for many occasions. Dress them up or down.
Wear them as jackets or dresses. Mix and match them with different color and style skirts, jeans or dress pants, or match them as two piece outfits head to toe.
Single breasted or double breasted, take your pick, depending on your body type. If you are top heavy, stay clear of double breasted blazers, because they make you look larger. A single breasted blazer will give you a slimmer look. Below are a few examples.
This Summer stripes are in; stripes of all sizes and colors, horizontal and vertical. Large stripes and small stripes, blue stripes and black stripes, stripes on shirts or on pants, whatever works for you. Just pick a stripe and go with it.
What type of hangers should I use to hang my clothing?
Great question, there are many types of hangers on the market. Some are good and some are not. The best hangers for hanging dresses and shirts are wooden, plastic or padded, but they have to be of a specific type. The wooden hangers need to be thick and rounded on the edges as well as the plastic ones.
Don’t use the wire hangers as they leave rabbit ears on the shoulder of your clothing. You don’t want to walk around with 2 little spikes on your shoulders. If you have a bunch of them, try using them for a DIY project.
Pants can be hung one of two ways. They can be folded over a think hanger, that will not leave a crease in the middle like the wooden hangers above or if you have enough space in your closet you can hang them from a two prong pants hanger. This eliminates any creasing. Or you can be creative and hang your jeans from S-hooks as I show in one of my previous blog posts.
You can even find creative ways to hang your scarves. I have a lot of them so these do come in handy for me.
You can find these types of hangers and container store, Ross, Target, Walmart and many other department stores. Again, have fun and be creative.
