Blaze it up !!

Hello Readers !! Hope you are doing rather well! It has been a fabulous week for me with yoga, meditation, writing and meeting some old friends. It has been truly therapeutic to align myself 🙂 ! Gratitude to the universe!!

Moving on to Fashion, trends never fail to surprise me …..they come back very interestingly each time ….make an impact and stay for more decades just like the Double Breasted Suits. They have taken over my wardrobe this season!!

Double Breasted Jackets originated in Britain in the 19th century. Men used to wear these jackets casually to the tennis matches. They were considered to be an informal attire for office wear at that time. It was the Prince of Wales in the 1920’s, who wore it often at the formal occasions and made it relevant as a formal attire.They maintained popularity till 1950’s and became quite popular again in the 1980’s and the early 2000’s.

Double Breasted Jackets originated in the Military – with the Royal Navy. Out of necessity, the tailors had to develop a jacket to protect the sailors from the harsh conditions they experienced at sea while performing their duty.

No matter how many……decades go by, the Double Breasted Blazers and the Bell Bottom trousers can never go out of style. I have been collecting my well fitted suits in all colours over the years. Whenever I wear them they set me apart and look enthralling. I love the power that oozes within me when I “suit up”. Power dressing defines you in a very unique way. No matter how you choose to wear it depicts an image of a strong woman who knows what she wants. Double Breast Suit - Rupika Chopra

At present there is a huge shift in the trends and the Double Breasted Suits have stormed into the fashion scene. Balmain, Alexander McQueen, D&G, Gucci, Top Shop, Zara to name a few have revived the vintage inspired look impactfully. They are available in fabulous colours and prints. Well cut double breasted suits in Florals, Stripes, Plain, Checks etc have taken over the market rapidly this season. They are chic and influential.

No matter what you wear with a suit, a white T- shirt, a formal shirt or a coquettish top inside…the ensemble becomes a great pick for any occasion because power dressing adds gravitas to your demeanour. According to the occasion, you can choose to look sultry, dynamic, resolute and stimulating with a well defined Double Breast Suit.

You can wear double breasted jackets with torn denims, teaming it with a slick pair of heels, funky sneakers or wedge heels and you will have dominance over the conventional dressing by far.  A jacket immediately gives you a dapper and an ultra modern look. The flared pants make your vibe retro and enhance your style…..which surely narrates some character!!

So what are you waiting for – Grab your “SUIT” girls!! You will look Astounding!!
