Mastering the Art of the Blazer: From Casual to Classy

The Mens blazer is a sartorial staple, steeped in British tradition. Crafted from heritage tweed patterns to warm weather friendly luxurious linen, these jackets embody the timeless charm of the English countryside like no other. These versatile pieces can be dressed up for a formal event or down for a relaxed weekend look. In this guide, we'll explore how to incorporate New Forest blazers into your wardrobe and unlock their full potential.


Choosing Your Blazer

New Forest Clothing boasts a fantastic collection of Men's Blazers. When making your selection, consider these factors:

Fabric: Tweed is a classic choice, offering warmth and texture. For warmer months, a lighter linen blazer is an ideal choice.

Colour: Brown and olive tones are timeless, while a navy blazer provides a touch of sophistication. The coloured stripes in tweed can be bold and contrasting, or more subtle with colours from the same colour family.

Fit: A well-fitted blazer flatters your silhouette. Opt for a tailored fit that hugs your shoulders without feeling constricting.


Dressing Up Your New Forest Blazer

Formal Flair: Channel your inner gentleman by pairing your blazer with a crisp shirt, a tailored waistcoat, and a tie. A pocket square adds a touch of personality.

Sharp Sophistication: Elevate a business casual look by layering your blazer over a button-down shirt and chinos. Chelsea boots or deck shoes complete the polished yet approachable vibe.

Formal shoots: On a very formal driven shoot, a tweed blazer might be part of the chosen attire, particularly when paired with a waistcoat and breeks. Generally, blazers are more suited for pre-game or post-game occasions and presentations.


Dressing Down Your New Forest Blazer

Effortless Cool: New Forest blazers can be surprisingly versatile. Try a lighter-coloured tweed blazer over a t-shirt and jeans.

Countryside Chic: Embrace the blazer's heritage by pairing it with a zip-neck sweater and cords. Brogue shoes tie the look together perfectly. 



Pro Tips

Accessorise: Elevate your look with a statement belt, a timeless watch, or a knitted scarf.

Footwear Matters: The right shoes can make or break your outfit. Choose footwear that complements the overall style you're aiming for.

Embrace Experimentation: Don't be afraid to experiment with different colour combinations and textures. Try a wool mix waistcoat with your tweed blazer to add a touch of colour to your outfit.

By following these tips, you can unlock the full potential of your New Forest blazer. It'll become a dependable companion in your wardrobe, taking you from the office to a night out with ease. So, ditch the fashion faux pas and embrace the art of the blazer!
