How and where to wear a long blazer


"I love this Pinstripe Long Blazer by Banana Republic! What I love most about it is its length. Not only does the length make a statement, but it also exudes confidence. Something about it made me feel bold and in control. Also, anyone can totally pull it off - it doesn't matter how tall or short you are.

Just in case you're wondering how and where to wear a long blazer like this one, here are a few tips for you.

How: A long blazer is amazing because it transforms every outfit by adding an extra edge. It's perfect with casual clothes, such as jeans/pants, and also goes pretty well with work clothes, skirts and dresses. It's basically versatile.

Where:  Another great thing about a long blazer is that it can be worn indoors as part of an outfit or outdoors as an extra layer. You can achieve this because the fabric is usually thin enough to wear indoors and thick enough to offer protection from the cold outside.

In summary, because of its versatility you can wear a long blazer with anything, at anytime, and anywhere, ranging from a formal event to a laid back gathering with friends. You can't go wrong with it.

Armed with that information, can you imagine my excitement when I spotted this long blazer at TJ Maxx, especially when I discovered it was on sale? When I realized that it was a steal, I grabbed it immediately. That's what I love about TJ Maxx. I walked in there with no intention of buying anything, but I couldn't resist their awesome deal."
