Trend Alert : belted blazer – my absolute favourite trend! I have a little bit of a blazer obsession which can be quantified as follows: I own 20 blazers in different colors, patterns, prints & fabrics. But, there is a good reason for my obsession – belted blazer elevate any outfit, whether you’re wearing pants, a skirt or a dress. Also, they accentuate the smallest part of the body: the waist – making you look slimmer and put together. The hottest trends right now are plaid & check in shades of grey/rust. But of course you cannot go wrong with neutrals such as black, white or beige. In terms of belts, the bigger the better and the patterns of the moment are: croc & python. Blazers are also a source of power, making you look and feel more confident. And of course, there are so many good ones out there!

The one I am wearing here is this check Lioness the jacket from Shopbop, and having bought a few stunning and high quality blazers from Shopbop in the past, I decided to pick a few and match them with belts for you to shop the trend more easily.
