This Lookbook Store asymmetric fit-and-flare blazer features a loden like fabric in gray (see detail photo later in this post). The cut reminds me of the jackets worn by officers more than two centuries ago when the tail had either to be split or cut like here to be able to ride on a horse. The blazer has a full lining in cherry red that makes it easy to wear over other clothes. The red lining looks like satin and is supposed to show once in a while when the wearer moves. This feature creates some attention, and makes the blazer a head turner.

In the front, the asymmetric fit-and-flare blazer features a princess cut. The jacket is tailored at the waist and then flares out in a pendulum like way in the front and tail-like in the back (see photo below). The tail is round like a cutaway. Being straight-up-and-down I like that this cut really gives me some shape.

The asymmetric fit-and-flare blazer is closed by silver buttons that feature an imprint similar to a Swiss coin detail (see photo below). The shoulders are slightly padded (see first photo in this post) and feature some extra darts to enhance the military look vibe of the blazer. The fit is created by a Princess cut.

On the first view, this fit-and-flare blazer may seem to hard to style. But it goes with everything that is sleek underneath like a knee length or longer pencil skirt, a sheath dress, riding pants, or skinny jeans.

Altogether the Lookbook Store asymmetric fit-and-flare blazer is a cute, modern spin on an old classic with an affordable price tag, and hence a great trend item for any age.
