One of my favorite garment pieces is the blazer … Since you can combine it in many ways and it goes well with all styles … Yet I think that depending on the color or the shape it hase, it may give you an extremely formal look. That’s why I wanted to refresh this old blazer to give it a more young and edgy look.

With some lace and eyelets you can make this laced up open back blazer for a fresh look and a WOW! impact when you turn around 😉

* There are many colors and different sizes of grommets so it depends on the style you want for your blazer. I chose small and silver.

11. In the same way you lace up a shoe lace the back of the blazer. If you want a fun and different design can use satin ribbons or cords of neon colors that contrast with a classic blazer.
