What to wear under blazer?
Tue, 07-26-2005 - 11:58pm
Hello! I just bought this lovely light-blue (almost turqoise but not quite) linen blazer yesterday. I'm wondering what I should wear under it? I think it looks best without anything, just worn alone, but I'm a kinda plump so I don't think i should be exposing my fats. What colour camis should I wear with it? I think black is too harsh.. any ideas? Thanks. =)

Pink, blue, maybe even a pale green. Bring it with you when you go shopping. I just bought one a little while back that it pea green (think split pea soup) with pink lace around the top and botton, and pink embroidery on the bottom off to the side. I bought it specifically to wear under a pink and white striped seersucker suit.

I agree with mngirl, take the blazer with you shopping, and see what looks good with it. Don't push aside brights, though, check it with other shades of blue, some are going to look great with it. You also might want to look at sleeveless shells, they also work well with blazers.

I agree with the others!

Only one word of caution: DON"T DO BLACK!!!! It can take away the brightness of the blazer and make it just "blah"....

I like the pink idea but I would probably do a lacy camisole style top, leaving a bit of the lace peeking out
