Which Blazer Is Right For You?

We can all agree that the blazer is a wardrobe staple. Whether you’re rocking it with a body-con dress or with cigarette trousers, the blazer is always a fabulous topper. If you’re replacing an existing blazer in your closet, looking to add more to your repertoire or hoping to purchase one for the first time, you have to figure out which one is right for you.

Are you a conservative dresser by nature or a fashion risk taker? Are you craving attention or need to tone it down with something neutral? Whatever it is you’re after, The Peacock Parade is offering  stylish blazers for all personalities.

You describe your style as refined. You’re always polished, neat and nothing is out of place. Your well-groomed appearance suits your corporate job. You’re willing to pay top dollar for basic pieces because you wear them time and time again. If this sounds like you, your blazer style is a classic two-button jacket.

Your friends say you’re the trendiest person they know. You have a subscription to every major fashion magazine and the last thing you would want in  your wardrobe is anything typical. Your clothes are bold and risky. If this sound like you, your blazer style is cropped, buttonless jacket in a eye-catching colour or print.

Your favourite colour is sparkle and you think diamonds are a girl’s best friend. You love to feel glamorous, even at work, so you have a bedazzled stapler and mouse. You love to go out after work and you’re desperate to find outfits that will work from day to night. If this sounds like you, your blazer style is professional with some embellishment.

Spring 2014 Couture

By Diana   |    January 21, 2014 8:00 pm    |   Fashion News, Style, The Peacock Parade Blog   |    off

Couture is fashion at its finest. No cost is spared and creativity is at its peak. For this reason, only a select few are bestowed the honour of calling themselves couturiers. Not even the house of Louis Vuitton has made the cut.

For Spring 2014 (currently underway), the couture catwalks boasted ultra-lux designs. At Giambattista Valli floral embroidery offered an Eastern motif and at Alexandre Vauthier over-the-top ruffles ruled. The week has only just begun and there’s already Oscar red carpet buzz surrounding many ensembles.
