HOW TO WEAR…A STATEMENT BLAZER

HOW TO WEAR……..A STATEMENT BLAZER. The Statement Blazer or Coloured Blazer is something that can be notoriously tricky to get right. One of the most important things to remember about wearing The Statement Blazer is it is the statement you are trying to make. It is the focal point of your outfit. The Statement Blazer is usually made of colours Men would not typically wear (although this trend is changing!). It is an outfit which requires a degree of thought and Cojones to pull off! The Statement Blazer is typically a staple of a Mediterranean Man’s style. Mediterranean fashion is no stranger to soft pastel colours especially since the climate is so good. For those of us in Ireland or the U.K. or indeed any place with enough bad weather during the Summer months the thought of wearing pastel colours or Statement Blazers is not really on our minds.

NO LONGER!

I am heading to Italy in August. As I decide on what to clothes to bring with me I’m drawn to the idea of wearing a Statement Blazer…………or 2! Which begs the question HOW TO WEAR…A STATEMENT BLAZER?! 

The Statement Blazer I shall bring to Italy were bargain buys from Burton Menswear in S/S 15. I picked up these Blazers for €35 each. RRP on one alone was something like €70 or €80. The shorts I’m wearing are also sale style steals from the River Island sale in S/S 15 at €18 each. It is always worth checkin out the end of season Summer sale for some bargains.

Another holiday inspired look here with the white shorts. This outfit highlights the versatility of The Statement Blazer. The colour flow is important. White is colour which is incredibly under utilised in Menswear. Its such a great colour to have in your wardrobe especially for your bottom half!
