The standards for blazers for women are that it should be able to cover half of each breast from both the side. Buttoning should be comfortable over the area.
- Length- You may find range of blazers in terms of length. Generally the conventional type of blazers have length upon the hip bone. Length depends completely on your preference but make sure that they should neither be too short or too long, it should rather compliment your look. Length of coat should be in proportion to your complete look. Try to have variety in terms of length to protect your look from being stereotype.

Preferably the length of your blazer shouldn’t exceed your wrist bone, shorter or longer than your arm up to wrist bone would give tacky look. A3/4 length of sleeves is ideal for blazers and perfect with cropped blazers. To be precise, blazer’s sleeves should not be around your mid of arm and also should not cover your palm too. Also length of blazer and length of sleeves should go well together.

The seam of your shoulder should end around your shoulder and fit should be confirmed by making some movements. These days youngsters prefer not to have shoulder pads in their jacket, though it is a personal preference but shoulder pads impart shape and fit to blazer.
- Buttons– One should definitely pay attention to buttons in the blazers and confirm that they give desired comfort and look to your body while keeping them unbuttoned or buttoning up. Check out the stance in blazer while buying. Higher stance in blazer, more will be the buttons and vice a versa.
