#40plusstyle inspiration: how to wear a blazer in style

by Sylvia

How to wear a blazer | 40plusstyle.com

The inspiration for this week’s #40plusstyle inspiration comes from 40+Style star Nora from Jacket Society, who knows like no other how to wear a blazer jacket. You can see her tips on how to wear a jacket and read her style interview here.

Here are just a few reasons why I love adding a blazer:

  • A blazer jacket is an easy and effective way to make your outfits more interesting.
  • It’s also very effective in hiding a belly and creating an elongating and vertical line.
  • A tailored jacket is great for accentuating your waist.
  • I love wearing a blazer with jeans  and I like the contrast between the classic blazer jacket and the more casual jeans.

Here are some more looks featuring blazers from the #40plusstyle tag on instagram.

Thank you Sylvia for featuring my look! I love blazers and wear them year round. Most of them are my own designs and I sell them on my web site including the one you are showing here which is our Florence blazer.


Love Inge’s look and the kid in the photo with her.
Yes, jackets and me are good friends. They suit me very well. I have a lot of them but can always use more. The strange thing is that jackets which I use on trousers will not look nice on skirts and vice versa. Must be how I am proportioned.
