What am I missing ??   If longer length blazers don't flatter your figure of if you just don't line them.....don't wear them.  Classic fit blazers aren't going anywhere.


@chrystaltreeJust a discussion on preferences of blazer length, what I've seen (here) and what you like personally.

 

I can't go too long myself without higher heels.  You?


I'm just shy of 5'6" and I prefer a long blazer worn with heels.

 

Oh, and with a skirt or pants, too (most of the time).

Re: Apparently Long Blazers Are Coming Back?

Is this the blazer?

If so, it appears that it's on its way out- clearance.

Re: Apparently Long Blazers Are Coming Back?

there's long, there's short and then there's an in between that just doesn't work (not long enough)..

At 5'2: I can go either way BUT the length has to be just right.

I love long blazers. One of my favorites was in the mid 90's.....a red riding jacket with suede collar, and suede elbow patches and black double-breasted buttons. It came down past my hips and looked so cute with a little red plaid kilt skirt I had which I wore with black tights and Bass loafers.

Re: Apparently Long Blazers Are Coming Back?

At 5'6" I prefer a classic length or a bit longer. If a blazer hits right above my widest point - hips - it is not flattering. I never wear the really cropped ones either. I have one longer length navy blazer that I love wearing with slim leg jeans and pants.

Re: Apparently Long Blazers Are Coming Back?

As a woman that's 6ft tall, I'd be happy to see some longer length jackets and cardigans.  Tired of the cropped look in general.
