Blaze into Fall with this super hot trend: THE BLAZER. The basic jacket that is an essential element to everyone's closet. Great as a suit and great as separates. Dress them up or Dress them down, this piece is ultra versatile. Not sure which blazer is right for you? Let me help. There is a style for every BODY, remember FIT is key! Follow these simple rules and you'll be a setting this season A-blaze!

CURVY. Compliment curves with a slightly over-size cut that skims the body rather than hugging trouble spots. Stick with solids or simple patterns; anything too busy will create the illusion of extra volume.

Toni says: "Contrasting trim on the lapel and cuff can definitely create a slimming effect. Find a jacket that contours to your curves and fits you in the shoulders, arm length, and torso."

Brands that suit this shape: I <3 Ronson, BB Dakota, Steve Alan, and Lily + Jae.

PETITE. Don't drown in over-size, non-shape long blazers. Opt for dark colors or an interesting lapel to draw attention upwards.

Toni says: "Opt for an accessory like a loosely tied scarf or statement necklace to add some pizazz to your top half."

Brands that suit this shape: The Limited, BCBG, TopShop, and Mango.

SMALL BUST. Want a quick augmentation without the surgery? Try a fitted blazer with a bold pattern and shimmer to add dimension up top. A snug fit creates shape and flatters a tiny frame.

Toni says, " Experiment with colors and patterns, it will only enhance the appearance of a more womanly shape!"

Brands that suit this shape: Forever 21, GAP, Armani Exchange 

TALL. Long and lean is beautiful. Statement blazers slim the figure and tall frames can carry them off without fail.

Toni says, "This is your opportunity to try sequins, patterns, and bold colors, be bold for Fall!"

Brands that suit this shape: Volcom, Shopbop, DKNY, and American Eagle
