I believe this fall everyone should have a blazer! This classic piece will make you look stylish and chic. A good blazer elevates an outfit giving you structure which always looks “expensive”. The best part is that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to buy the perfect blazer. In fact, all my blazers are so inexpensive (but they don’t look cheap) because I like to save money, who doesn’t? That’s why today I wanted to share a few tips to find the perfect blazer at an affordable price, because yes, you can look expensive without breaking the bank.
Tip 1: Where can I buy a blazer for $10 or less?
I love to buy all my blazers from Swap.com which is a thrift store online, but I also have seen amazing blazers for less than $10 on Thread up which is another thrift store online. You can also visit local thrift stores if you prefer to see how it looks in person, I recommend Savers, and they always have a large variety of blazers from vintage to more modern options. I personally love online shopping; I find this is the best way to save money. How can I save money shopping online?
I recently bought this amazing orange blazer from swap and I pay $0. Here is the thing; the blazer was $8 On Sale which is pretty affordable. With shipping would be $14 but I wanted to pay less so I looked on Google for Online Coupons which is the key! Swap always has amazing coupons that’s why I knew I would find a good one.
Now, because I shop so much at swap (btw this is not sponsored) I had a ten dollar credit so I could give my credit and pay the rest $4 for the shipping but I didn’t want to pay $4 (lol yes I wanted to be less) and I know may sound cheap but hey I’m all about smart shop so I used a coupon (you can use just one coupon per order) that made the cost of the blazer $6 instead of $8 and with the coupon I just had to pay $1.99 which is an amazing deal but in my mind I was what if I can pay $0? So I looked for a coupon that offered Free Shipping and that’s the way I pay $0 for that orange blazer. Amazing right? But what if you don’t have credit? You can still have a blazer for less than $10 dollars you have to play with the online coupons.
Tip: With your first purchase you have free shipping.
Tip 2: Time to explore!
To find a good blazer you need to be open to try new things. Try a different color, prints and styles! Maybe the one you think won’t work is the one you end up buying.
Tip 3: Find the Right Fit
This is one of the most important things you have to keep in mind when it comes to buying a blazer. In my book there are 3 main different fits; the thigh fitting, slightly loose and the oversize fitting. I believe the most flattering, stylish and chic fit is when the clothing is slightly loose but still has structure. A blazer looks more modern and expensive when has enough room to be comfortable and has a good length. BTW, I’m a true size 18 but I like to wear my blazer in 20 to be comfortable, that’s why love the oversize fit!
Tip: Try to stay away from short blazers, a longer blazer will always elevate your outfit!
