I want to look more professional, maybe by just adding a suit jacket or blazer to my usual look, but I don't know how to wear them without looking dull and uptight. Any suggestions? --Roxy
I totally know what you're talking about. A finely dressed feline wants the smart, put together look of a blazer without looking like a tom. Blazers are more popular than ever right now. Here are my tips to help you look feminine and fun, not stiff and masculine:
1. Dress it down. Pair the blazer with skinny jeans or pants or with a dress, not with suit pants.
2. Go unstructured. Choose soft fabrics, cropped styles, and soft shoulders.
3. Look for feminine details like piping, ruching, and belts. Or add your own belt.
Roll it up

Add a belt to your sweater jacket.
