Wedding Guest Blazers for Slacks or Dresses

Ivanka Trump Open Front Blazer


Editor's note: Congratulations to Alicia S., winner of the Flattering50's $50 Visa Gift Card Giveaway!! There's still time to enter the Flattering50's Swimwear Giveaway. For details, click Giveaway.

A Flattering50 reader recently asked me for the shopping sources for blazers I featured in a post about Slacks and the Evening Wedding. Unfortunately, that post is a couple of years old and the blazers shown are no longer in stock. Since we're entering a time when there's often lots of wedding invites, I thought I'd post some 2015 spring blazers that might do nicely with slack or a dress for a wedding guest outfit.

Flattering50 Giveaway: Enter for a Chance to Win Swimwear



Yesterday, I wrote about my experience ordering a new tankini from SwimSpot. It was a great shopping experience and I'm thrilled with my new tankini. Now SwimSpot would like to give one Flattering50 reader a chance to win swimwear of her choice valued up to $100.

SwimSpot offers high-quality swimwear from brands like Nautica and Athena. The site has a large collection of one-piece suits, tankinis (like the one above), swimdresses as well as cover up dresses, tunics, shorts and pants. Most garments come in either Sizes XS-L or 4-16.

SwimSpot: Stylish, Comfortable Swimwear



I suspect I'm not alone when I say I don't enjoy swimsuit shopping in department stores. I'm usually shopping for a new bathing suit at this time of year, when my body, particularly my skin, has yet to recover from the cold, moisture-zapping winter months. Needless to say, the fluorescent lights in the store fitting rooms aren't friendly to chalky, wrinkly skin. As a result, I'm a huge fan of buying swimwear online. I love trying on swimwear at my leisure under the softer, more forgiving lights at home. So when the folks at SwimSpot recently contacted me to see if I'd like to review a swimpiece from their online site, I jumped at the offer.
