The Best Type Of Blazer

In the 1980s the blazer to pair with a sweatshirt was that of a more boxy look and featured shoulder pads. Although shoulder pads can still work for these modern times, we absolutely need to get rid of the boxy look. That is why we recommend to wear a slim fit blazer or slightly looser if you need more room. Avoid wearing a skinny fit blazer as this will lead to your sweatshirt bunching up become too tight.
