Style advice for the Kai blazer

The Kai blazer is a must-have in your wardrobe. There are plenty of possibilities: you can cinch in the waist of the blazer with a thick belt (to accentuate the waist) or just let it hang loose. The collar and blind-stitched pockets give the blazer plenty of volume. Ideal combination = the Kai blazer with the Peaches trousers in the same colour. This way, you’re totally on trend in a monochrome outfit. Find out how the Kai blazer can be worn for your figure type here.

The Kai Blazer for O types

Remember that your figure benefits from as many (visual) vertical lines as possible. O types do not want to draw attention to the middle zone of the body either. These are two aspects that, when well-balanced, give your figure a more proportional look.

How do you do that?

  • Wear shoulder pads in your blazer to make your shoulders straighter and wider.
  • Choose a longer version of the blazer to make your figure look longer.
  • The lowered button closure creates a V-shape that stretches the upper body visually.
  • Do not combine the blazer with a belt. Due to the lack of waist, a constricted blazer will not add anything to your figure. Simply close the vest with a button or let the blazer hang open.
  • Draw the focus to the shoulders and face. You can do this with things like eye-catching earrings, a necklace, or another striking detail at shoulder height.
  • Rolled-up sleeves add an accent to your wrists. You can reinforce this by wearing a bracelet.
  • Create the ideal combination by wearing the blazer with the Peaches trousers! Monochrome outfits stretch out your body!
  • Choose a supple fabric that still has enough texture.

The Kai blazer for H types

H types’ shoulders and hips are approximately the same width. Your figure is well-balanced. So it’s important to maintain that balance. The only thing missing is a clear waist.

How do you do that?

  • Add shoulder pads to the Kai blazer to make the shoulders wider. This also makes the waist look slimmer.
  • Combine the blazer with the Peaches trousers. Make the trousers with legs that are wide enough and cinch the cardigan with a belt for the perfect look.
  • The lowered button closure creates a V-shape that stretches the upper body visually, making it narrower.
  • Stop the blazer just below the hip bone.
  • Create a break around your middle to give yourself a waist. So choose a different colour for your top and your trousers or skirt.
  • A fabric with a check pattern will look great on your straight figure. Stiffer fabrics also give your body more structure.

The Kai blazer for I types

I types have a very slim, straight figure and lack a clear waist. We want to create that waist and visually give curves to your figure.

How do you do that?

  • Make the blazer narrower at the waist.
  • The V-shape of the Kai blazer draws extra attention to the waist.
  • Add more volume to the chest and hips, for example, by putting pockets at hip height.
  • Make your silhouette interesting by playing with colours and prints.
  • Avoid fabrics that are too thin, opting instead for fabrics that give structure to your body.

The Kai blazer for A types

Your figure type has a solid lower body and a relatively very narrow upper body. To balance your figure, we will draw the focus to the upper body and away from the lower body.

How do you do that?

  • Make the shoulders visually wider by adding shoulder pads to the blazer. The collar and lapel also draw extra attention to your upper body.
  • Wear the blazer with a top and eye-catching accessories to give more weight to the upper body.
  • Accentuate your waist with a smooth transition from top to bottom. Put the button closure near the waist and wear the blazer with a belt to further emphasise the waist.
  • The hem of the blazer is located above or below (but certainly not on) the widest part of the lower body.
  • Choose a fabric with a dark, subtle colour for the lower body and a more striking print or bright colour for the upper body.
  • The straight or wide legs of the Peaches trousers provide a good counterbalance to the hips, making it perfect for combining with the Kai blazer.

The Kai blazer for X and 8 types

X and 8 types have bodies that are naturally well-balanced. The shoulders and hips are more or less the same width and there is a clear waistline. Therefore, choose clothes that follow the natural shapes and accentuate the waist as much as possible.

How do you do that?

  • Accentuate the waist with the button closure and a belt.
  • As an X or 8 type, you have naturally beautiful, feminine curves, so you don’t need to add any extra frills. Simple lines are ideal.
  • The V-shape of the blazer emphasises your waist even more. The open neckline draws attention to your face.
  • Opt for a supple fabric.
  • Pair it with the straight cut Peaches trousers for the ideal combination.

The Kai blazer for V types

A V type’s centre of gravity is above the waist. V types have rather wide shoulders or a larger bust, with a narrower lower body. Your figure type should try to visually soften the shoulders. Balance your silhouette better by drawing attention away from the shoulders and directing it to the lower body.

How do you do that?

  • Make the blazer with a standard shoulder length/sleeve insert. A sloping shoulder line is not ideal for your type.
  • Make the sleeves narrow. The narrower the sleeve width, the narrower your figure appears.
  • Nip the blazer in at the waist and add a single row of buttons for a slender silhouette.
  • The blazer’s V-shape also puts more emphasis on the waist.
  • Move the focus to your lower body by making the blazer long enough, to hip height at the least.
  • Add more volume to your hips by adding details such as pockets.
  • Play with colours. The Kai blazer can be made in a fairly dark colour and combined with trousers or a skirt in a lighter or brighter colour. This way, you will once again draw attention to your lower body.
  • Don’t make the blazer in a fabric that’s too stiff; opt for a supple fabric instead.
  • The blazer pairs beautifully with the Peaches trousers. Moreover, the Peaches trousers give your figure enough counterweight for your wider shoulders.
