I'm trying to class up my work wardrobe as I recently got a promotion. Do blazers look masculine on a woman? My measurements are about 35 28 36 ... so am I too "up-and-down" to make a blazer look girly?
I think blazers look great. If you are worried about it looking too manly on you, get one that has great tailoring. And some feminine details.
Get a flower pin or a nice feminine broach and pin that to the lapel. Take some ribbon or a pretty belt to cinch in the waist. Wear a nice blazer with a flowy summer dress, all of these are great ways to feminize a blazer. I would try some on in a store with a few different accessories and see how they look. It can depend on the styles too. Some may look more masculine than others.
If you're worried about looking too masculine, stick with skirt+jacket rather then trouser + jacket.
I think jacket + trousers should look okay on your body, but the trouser should be relatively slim, especially through your hips and thighs. 36" hips should look great, I hope you are not walking around in baggy sack-like pants.
And make sure you get it tailored. Find a (probably men's) alteration tailor, get the waist fitted to be close fitting but not tight.
I was gonna ask if you were talking about a casual blazer or an office blazer. But I love blazers on women. They are one of my favorite clothing items on a woman. They look smart and sophisticated and imo they make a woman look sexy. But no, they don't look masculine/unattractive on women, well not to me anyway/ To me, it makes them look more attractive and adds that little bit of class to your image. But that's because I'm into intelligent and classy women.
not at all. try a scarf to add some color to it f you're worried about that or some bright shoes
omg I have the same measurements and I can't make mine look girlie but I haven't had mine tailored since I only wear it once a year but try leaving it open with a pink blouse underneath and maybe a long pearl necklace that's knotted? just get some girlie jewelry and lots of pink and other girlie colors maybe try wearing a pencil skirt and heels?
