The revival of the Fitted Jacket / Blazer
This is one of those classical items that never really disappears so some of you might not see it as a trend

since we've had seasons with lots of jackets of all different forms the fitted jacket is really coming on huge now


the revival began with Balenciaga's FW 07 collection:

and these are recent street-style pictures from New York

I'll be honest with you all... I don't know too much on different types of jackets. Only real jacket I've last worn was a tuxedo back when my brother got married in November last year. This fitted jacket... I actually like fitted jackets. They seem like nice jackets to accentuate a woman's torso beautifully. They kind of seem to fit the body like an airy cardigan or any of those dusters I've loved seeing femmes wear. The Balenciaga's collection (Post #1) are some of my favorites and the only real way I understood what a fitted jacket was. Trouble is, I can only see these jackets as careerwear even while temperatures get hotter around here (or at least here in Houston where it can be REALLY hot). I don't think anyone would really wear a fitted jacket unless it's cool outside or dressing up for the office on a warm day. Either way, a fitted jacket can work quite well for those that can pull it off.

Do you think these jackets can work for full-figured types?

Unless I'm misunderstanding, when I think "fitted" I don't think "tight;" I think "fitted" to mean tailored and cut to best fit your body. So, why wouldn't it work for full-figured women?

a posh formal looking jacket like @ balenciaga (the blue w the white trim) would look quite fresh
for both boys and gals
w some nice detailing, like brooches and royal patches
something regency-esque or school uniform

say no to just plain fitted jackets.. and hopefully no more t-shirts worn underneath
+ yes to a bit of decor
and even velvets ...

i really love the fitted jacket look. i don't think that these jackets can be limited to career wear. if theyre paired with more casual things they could totally work.

o I disagree with that completely. I think that it's much more versatile to have a basic and plain fitted jacket than to have an extravagant one like velvet. It's cool if you can afford different colored ones and what not but for those who can't it seems very "trendy".

For example, the pink balenciaga in the first post could be worn so many different ways. The others are awesome, but how long until people get tired of seeing them?

sorry i was only referring to women's wear

and i'm eating my words now about extravagance not the perfect word
this one saann posted from facehunter, turtle neck with a slim jacket.. look quite good. more classic than trend
http://bp3.blogger.com/_6UzdmF8O-Oo/...0/IMG_5886.jpg

but yeah i just mean for something other than the usual black
use pinks, blue with white trim, the stripes and also in odd textures + unusual fabrics, like chanel tweeds and things..

I loved Balenciaga's fitted blazers... it's a look I'll never get tired of. I adore the stripey Proenza ones as well...

I've always liked fitted blazers. I agree that it is a wardrobe staple.
