Blazers and belts, an unintentional pairing but somehow their juxtaposition alludes into a beautiful symphony. As the anticipated sweater weather quickly approaches, the statement blazer trend is revisited with an auxiliary twist. It’s all about that slimming waistline or at least the illusion of one.

We like to call this, “The Art of the Waist,” minus the unsightly use of a constricting waist trainer or skinny tea. Usher in a lightweight, oversized blazer and include a belt —skinny or wide — over your jacket.

The One Jacket Styling Trick We All Need to Master

In masting the blazer and belt duo proportion is key, so a boxy silhouette works best, as the wider shoulder element will draw more attention to the waistline and an hourglass appeal with an androgynous flair. Roll up the sleeves and layer a shirt under your jacket to create dimension to your look. If you’re a less is more person bare it all and let the jacket act as your focal point. Complete your ensemble with bootcut jeans, ankle booties, and oval sunnies for a touch of rock and roll chic.
