There was a time when I was really obsessed by blazers. I thought they fit me "so well", and I would always try to wear them in every outfit possible. When I wore them, I looked "put together".
When I threw this blazer on, I was really surprised how much appeal it lost for me - I haven't worn this white blazer since almost a year and i also did not buy new ones, because of their awful shoulder paddings. Looking bulky is not what i want.
In the 80s, the message of the ginormous paddings was "I am a successful businesswoman, with broad shoulders like a man! Wearing this will make them take me more seriously!"
I keep seeing blazers combined with tight blouses and mom-jeans on blogs of young women and I keep thinking to myself : You could wear this in 20 years. You should wear more exciting things while you can get away with it, like hot pants. And thats what I did. Dear blazer, you need to go back in the closet for a long time... maybe someday I will like you again.
