Sharp Shoulders 4 Fall


Sharp shoulders for fall... so it's not exactly groundbreaking but hey, if it ain't broke don't fix it. 

Whether it's oversized, fitted, double-breasted or part of a suit, the fall blazer has endured as a pillar of cool-weather dressing since women first donned lapels. 

Here are some of our favourite blazer moments, as well as some of our favourite blazers available online now! Starting with the sharpest and boldest shoulder of them all, the high 80s yuppie blazer:

Now a brief intermission known as the 1950's "New Look" aka. a radical feminization of the blazer. Blazers essentially became corsetry-as-outerwear. However you feel about the New Look, Christian Dior is indisputably the godfather of the snatched waist.

Some 30s/40s looks when suiting for women was in it's infancy and still buzzworthy if not outright controversial.

And finally, the fall blazer served loose and formless, just the way the flappers of the 1920s liked it!
