Sometimes blazers and jackets are necessary. Sometimes they’re just layering pieces that add interest to an outfit. Regardless of why you’re wearing them, you’ll want them to look great on. So what is it you need to know when purchasing? Which style suits your shoulders best. Let’s start with the basics – shoulder types. I’ve found that most shoulders fall into 3 categories (although there are always variations) – Narrow, Regular and Broad. Within these categories can fall a situation where someone’s shoulders are also Sloped, meaning they slope down at the ends versus straight across. Some jackets and blazers will look better on some shoulders than others. The key lies in the cut and style at the shoulders. Narrow or Sloped Shoulders If you have Narrow or Sloped…
