Sumissura Blazer Edition
We have covered pants, and shirts, but blazers are also a wardrobe staple that every woman should own. When perfectly tailored, this single garment can have you covered for a multitude of settings. However, those longer arms or that larger bust can make finding that perfectly tailored blazer mission impossible. Wouldn’t it be neat if you could just go to one place and find a blazer with an awesome fit that comes in a myriad of colors and customizable details? Well search no longer, Sumissura to the rescue!
Blazers are such a must have but finding the perfect one is a PAIN! That is why Sumissura is such a life saver. You get a quality garment which fits well at an affordable price. Plus, the options are truly endless so everyone is sure to find something that tickles their fancy.
As mentioned in our Sumissura shirt review, using their website is really easy. The system prompts you to enter your measurements, even showing a picture of how to adequately take those measurements. By inputting your height and weight, the software provides “suggested measurements” and if you enter a measurement that seems off, you get an error message.
Needless to say that my blazer fits perfectly and yes tall girls, this means that the sleeves are LONG! Let us take a moment of silence for long sleeves that are actually long! What a noble concept!
I decided to go with a peak lapel, double breasted four button blazer. I wanted a nice jewel color so I decided to go with an emerald green (“Robin Hood” on sumissura.com). So while I was thrilled to see this rich color, my husband noted that it looked like I had won the Masters (google PGA green jacket… LOL) So while I was glad that I looked like a winner, I had to style it so that I could shake off the golf reference.
I paired my blazer with a fun two toned pleated skirt. I accessorized my look with simple gold accessories and had to steal one of my hubby’s pocket squares. I added a fun pom pom button and finished my look with some striped pumps.
The watch words for my look were fit, flare, fashionable geek chic! Sumissura has hit another home run for me when it comes to providing a fashionable look, with a fit that speaks of quality bespoke tailoring. No need for the big “post purchase production” of lengthening sleeves and taking in waistlines for us slim girls! (Let’s have a momentary pause for a happy dance!)
True to form with Sumissura, I had the opportunity to jump into the designers seat and style my jacket to my personalized specifications, taking into account everything from the fit (i.e. straight cut or slim fit); the length of the jacket, whether I wanted it double or single breasted, one button or two, the style of the collar and on and on and on! My favourite part was selecting the material and print! I knew I had landed on a winner when I came across this beautiful print reminiscent of classic British tweeds and plaids.
I wanted my look to have a neutral base with some punches of color to add a little pizzazz. Since I simply love blues I selected this blue striped shirt to add that pop of colour, along with some blue in my pocket square and these black and blue striped shoes!
A girls always got to have something to hold her bits and bobs, so I opted to carry them all in this gorgeous Mulberry Bayswater bag.
So start your engines ladies and gents and get your made to measure, customized blazer. Say “buh-bye” to too short sleeves, too big bust-lines or too narrow shoulders. Jump into the driver’s seat and create your own stylish blazer!
For my sexy curvy girls: Pants //
I fell in love with my Sumissura shirt seen here so I was definitely game for testing out their made to measure service for selecting a blazer! Once again, the process was as easy as pie.
Sumissura has a great selection of materials available for you to choose from. I went with a short berry coloured velvet blazer with cut away hem in the front. I was even able to choose the interior lining for my jacket as well. Since I had saved my measurements when I had my blue check shirt made, I merely re-selected those numbers and I was good to go.
Once again, the shipping was lightening quick! In about a week I was able to slip into my tailor made jacket and the fit was on point!
We all know that blazers are definitely a wardrobe staple but often times it’s so difficult to find an affordable one off the rack that fits perfectly or as close to perfect as possible. That’s what’s so wonderful with Sumissura’s service. They allow you to have a custom made blazer at an affordable price! I call that a win – win situation!
I completed my look by pairing my ever so chic jacket with a white pencil skirt and leopard print slingbacks. Now I’m off to slay and conqueror! lol
Well it’s not surprising that we are collaborating again with Sumissura. We had such a great experience working with them the first time that we just had to do it all over again. This time around we are featuring their fabulous Blazers.
For this collaboration I chose a black velvet blazer. You may probably be wondering why velvet? Well, I had a vision of glam and a bit of Janelle Monae. I have to admit I’m not typically the biggest fan of velvet, however when a velvet fashion garment is rocked well, I’m here for it.
Again, I cannot stress enough how easy the Sumissura website is to navigate. You can select everything from the material to be used, to the shape, fit and detailing of your blazer. And the great thing with their website is that when you register and enter your measurements the first time you place an order, their system automatically saves it for the next time you visit the site! How awesome is that!
For this look I went with a simple black and white colour palette. I elected to wear my blazer with no shirt underneath and a big statement necklace to bring life to my outfit. To complete my look I wore my 3/4 black and white gingham print pants which I wore last year for the Autumn Prints Post. To add a little bit of pizzazz to my outfit I wore my Ivanka trump dark wine suede pumps and a nice beaded velvet clutch.
Ta Ta for now,
The Fab Four
