Glam Up Your Boyfriend Blazer With Fashion Jewelry

The boyfriend blazer is fun to wear, especially with a nice pair of jeans and a comfortable white tee. Based on your body type, here are some ideas on how you can glam up this outfit with some great fashion jewelry.


If you are tall, you are going to want to pair your outfit with some funky jewelry. Think bright, bold, but complementing colors, a string of bubble sized beads or chunky stones for a necklace. For earrings, think large colorful studs or acrylic hoops to complement the colors in your necklace. Now, roll up the sleeves and adorn your arms with fabulous, fun bangles. Be sure to use several of them in the same color palate as the earrings and necklace.

Short & Petite:

For the petite woman, accessorizing the boyfriend blazer is a bit different. To make your body appear longer, you should use long lines. Buy a linked chain that goes past your bust, but stops at least an inch and a half above the top of the waist of your pants. Anything that touches or goes past the waist will make you look more petite. Wear chandelier or hoop earrings that are long, but not so long that they brush against your shoulders. Don't roll up your sleeves; instead leave them long - so you can skip the bangles if you like. This gives you a longer silhouette, hence makes you look a bit taller.

Plus Size / Curvy:

Like petite women, curvy women should accessorize to look taller as well, which will make you look slimmer. Instead of a chain that goes over the bust, you're going to want a chain that is medium width, with a pendant that is not too large or too small. It shouldn't be right up against your neck, and should stop short of spilling over your bust.

Your earrings should be slim metallic or acrylic hoops or anything with a long straight line that ends just below your chin. Again do not roll up your sleeves, this will break the long lines you are working to create.

We've only outlined three of the common body types to give you an idea of the different ways you can use fashion accessories. But whatever your body type, wear what makes you feel comfortable. With all their colors and varying sizes, fashion accessories help you express yourself - use them to look and feel good about yourself.
