Suit Jackets and Blazers Fashion Trends Spring/Summer 2016

Women’s blazers can be business or casual, representing both the basiс item for working office wardrobe, and a relaxed casual style piece for everyday wear. In the latter case you have to find an appropriate pair like elegant or cropped pants, flared or pencil skirt, bodycon dress, or, for summer weather you can wear them with shorts and mini- skirts.

Here are main fashion trends for women’s blazers and suit jackets spring/summer 2016.

Cropped & bolero jackets

Short jackets that ends above the waistline are the pieces for women with slim figure, otherwise the one who wear them will look bold and disgraceful. To make your fashion look safe, opt for short jackets covering the top side of your body. Pair these jackets with ruffled skirts, shorts and wide/baggy pants.

All of them pair perfectly with both simple and complex versions of pants, skirts and dresses. Combine long fitted blazers with breeches, cropped carrot pants and midi skirts.

Pajama style jackets

They look original, a bit childish, and sometimes even ridiculous. To wear pajama style jackets you need a confidence and some kind of fashion courage. These jackets with small prints draw a lot of attention and can’t be not noticed. To avoid overloading your look, pair them with neutral basic skirts, pants and shorts.

Military style jackets and blazers

Military trend goes away and comes back again, fully updated and equally charming. Now the designers have not relied on brutal military style, which is well manifested in coats and trench coats, but on elegant, authentic style for jackets, demonstrating single-breasted and double-breasted officer style pieces. These jackets hold the female figure very closely, and looks incredibly tempting, emphasizing all its advantages.
