how to wear a long blazer

    Show more long blazer, please. I love a long blazer.

  2. Eve says:

    Pink really could serve as a neutral because it goes with neutrals so well. I like pink and brown too. But because I’m short, I try to keep a low contrast.

  3. Linda says:

    Why do you let the long strap of purses hang instead of removing them as you can do? I’m just curious. I always enjoy your blog.

      a) it’s important to show my readers the versatility of any item, including handbags.
      b) i never know when the long strap will come in handy so i like to be prepared.

  4. Love your style. I too love blazers! i have 4 pink ones in different shades and styles alone. Love the jeans. Believe I have these in white also. Have a great day!

    I love the polka dot bag and shoes, too! Very cute spring outfit.

  6. Susan Kelley says:

    That looks like a fun outfit!

    • Beth Djalali says:

      truly a mood brightener!

        I totally agree! You should wear what you like and stay up to date with the styles as much as possible. Way to go for standing up for us! I am 75 and just bought my 1st pair of high waist straight leg jeans yesterday. Enjoy your pink blazer! There is nothing better than pink in the spring!!

    Great post, Beth. Blazers are a true investment piece, so I always look for the best quality the budget will afford as they will lease for years.

    When it’s finally safe to travel, they are great to wear on a plane to take bulk out of the suitcase. One can only dream! I get my jab Easter Sunday and both my sons have had theirs (frontline) so I might actually get to hug them this summer🎁 – in a boyfriend blazer 😉.

    You look fabulous in that pink blazer, Beth. It has inspired me to embrace colour more and to also try a longer blazer!

    Hi Beth, I think you look so fabulous in hot pink, and polka dots never go out of style! I really appreciate you pushing back on the “age appropriate” commentary. If it’s ok for the young’uns to embrace the so-called “grandma chic” then I’m gonna rock my shorter skirts, stilettos, and red lipstick.

    I will add that personally, in the drab East Coast winter I sometimes use a pop of bright color or flower pattern to mentally pick me up and make me think of spring.

    Hi Beth,
    I have that outfit in my closet. Everything but the shoes. I’m glad to hear that larger longer jackets are on trend because that is what mine have become since I have lost some weight. This is especially true of those I bought before I discovered that Talbot s carried plus petite I have not worn blazers a lot because they aren’t comfortable. My arms are heavy and even though I buy a size larger than my torso needs, the sleeves are still snug. I have never been able to wear a sweater under a blazer even though I love the look. Thank you for helping me to feel on trend and not frumpy while I get another year out of the blazers i have

    Darn it’s sold out! They didn’t even show the fuchsia.

  13. Dodie says:

    Hi Beth! Love your style. That blazer is killer. Can you please talk about socks? I think they’re basically not in fashion but I pick comfort first and in these cool early spring days, can we put on a cool pair of argyles with our loafers and not look totally out of style? ( or embarrass our 13 yo granddaughter?🥴

    • Beth Djalali says:

      well, i think we can always embarrass our children or grandchildren at any given moment. but that sounds like a cute combo!
      what do you have to lose?

  14. Very good tips to purchase a blazer.

  15. Lynne says:

    Beth, Thank you for the sizing tip. I love a longer length blazer but at times I seem to be swallowed up in the boxy style.
    Wish me luck!
