Blazers are hot right now but every blazer is not the best fit for every body. Blazers are meant to add balance and structure to an outfit. Therefore if you wear a blazer not fit for your body type, the blazer is not doing it's job. Since i want every reader of Avid Accents to look their best on a daily basis, I'm giving you the dish on blazers and body types.
Hourglass- your bust and hips are the same width plus you have a small waistline
Apple- Heavy at the waist
Ruler- have minimal amounts of curve in your body
Cone- heavier at the shoulders & bust compared to the hips
And here are some blazer suggestions for each body type.

or a long slender blazer to minimize your hips

find a blazer with a very defined waistline. This will give the illusion of it being your natural waist
nothing with pockets, as they emphasize the midsection

look for vintage blazers with volume in the shoulders and pleating around the waistline
find a blazer with piping on the edges or a belt to create the curves for you.

look for blazers with a deep V neckline to elongate the bust
and of course i chose to wear a blazer today
