WHY BLAZERS? WHY I LOVE BLAZERS + GOODWILL AKA BLAZER HEAVEN TIPS

If you had to describe my style in one word, the first thing that probably comes to your mind is: blazers (for me, that’s a hard flex hehe).

I am not really sure when exactly my love for blazers started to develop, but for the last few years, it’s become my signature. I’ve never shared this before, but blazers used to be my security blanket. Of course, I loved the look of an outfit with the perfect blazer, but they used to be just a cover for my insecurities. Whether it was to cover my arms or hide my stomach, blazers were a way I could feel confident. I’m someone who has always been confident in who I AM, but my physical appearance has been a different battle. Through therapy, a healthier lifestyle, and a HUGE mindset switch, I started to work on that side of my confidence and blazers became a part of my story. Blazers are not only super chic & stylish, but ... they exude a level of confidence and strength that has become a way to affirm myself. Along with that, blazers and suiting in general represent a masculine energy that I feel is necessary as a woman in this day and age; similarly, to the flappers in the 20s who redefined women’s style with their drastic haircuts, cigarette addictions, untraditional dancing, and, overall, UNAPOLOGETIC demeanor, the oversized blazer has become a symbol of power that has inspired motivation within me.

TIPS FOR GOODWILL:

My favorite place to shop blazers is GOODWILL. It’s pretty simple: head right to the men’s
suiting section and go through the blazers/suit sets. If you’re lucky, you’ll find matching sets (the
pants are usually big, but you can either fold them over, belt the pants, or singe them tighter with
the suit, pant hook).

Lots of you babes have messaged me about finding the right sizing... I think
it just takes practice. Once you start to find ones you like, you’ll start seeing them and
recognizing the ones that are too big or too small versus the ones that are perfectly oversized. I
personally love mine SUPER oversized, but, remember, go for what you’re going to feel
confident in.

If I am looking for one that I can wear as a dress, I make sure there isn’t a slit on
the back. I, also, always get one with shoulder pads for a structured look.

Lastly, ANYONE can pull off a men’s blazer. I get DMs all the time saying things like “there is no way I could pull that
off” etc. This is your reminder: you can pull of anything you love, resonate with, & feel
confident in.
