1 Blazer, 3 Outfits: How to Amp Up Your Style With This Figure-Fixing Jacket

The blazer is one of my favorite figure-fixers. It defines your shoulders, nips you in at the waist, and creates a flattering V at the bust that elongates your figure. So naturally I included one in my new Kelly by Clinton Kelly clothing collection for QVC. I styled three women with different body shapes in the gorgeous raspberry color to show you just how versatile—and flattering!—a blazer really is.

Clinton Kelly Blazer Weekend Chic

Weekend Chic

Step up your casual game by subbing a blazer in for that crewneck sweater or (heaven forbid) sweatshirt. I paired it with a chambray shirt and white jeans, but you could do the opposite (blue jeans and a white oxford) and it would be just as chic. Casual flats or slip-on sneakers both work, too.

Clinton Kelly Blazer Work It

Work It

Unless you’re an investment banker or a stewardess, you probably don’t have to wear a suit as a uniform. Pair a colorful blazer with any solid-color pant and a printed shirt, like this whimsical butterfly print one that I adore from my collection. Throw on a heel or a wedge, grab a cute bag and you're done! Shown here: ¾ Sleeve Jacquard Blazer in Raspberry, $63; Double Stretch Pull-On Ankle Pants in Black, $49; and Roll Tab Long Sleeve Blouse in Butterfly Print, $60, qvc.com.

Coyote urine. It’s the reason my hydrangeas actually bloomed this year. (Deer repellent.) And after her thorough sweep of the gardens for chipmunks, it’s what Mary smells like right now. #bathtime Happy Saturday!
