The hourglass blazer that slims the waist is the must have of 2024 Vogue Italia

The hourglass blazer that slims the waist will be the must-have of the coming seasons

What will the Blazer look like in 2024? It is a garment that has often shown a certain tendency to ignore trends and forego creative boldness in favor of timeless aesthetic solutions. And yet one of his latest interpretations – seen on the catwalk and promptly taken up in street style – makes us want to leave our comfort zone. We're talking about the hourglass blazer, a silhouette that has the distinct advantage of slimming the waist and emphasizing the shoulders and hips. Stylists have suggested several variations. While the hourglass blazer shown at Alexander McQueen's Fall-Winter 2023/2024 fashion show is simple and graphic, the blazer proposed by Balmain for the same season sets accents for a grand soirée.

In the beginning it was Victoria

When we look from the catwalks to the streets of the fashion capitals, we notice that the hourglass blazer has already seduced many a celebrity. Starting with Victoria Beckham, who – unsurprisingly – was a pioneer of the trend and had already adopted it in 2018. More recently, British model and actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has been spotted at least twice, in both cases in an all-white version: in Milan for the evening in a pantsless look including tonal tights, and in Paris for the day in a top and shorts . Christine Centenera, founder of the wardrobe.NYC brand and editor-in-chief of the Australian edition of Vogue, has also made it one of her wardrobe essentials, often wearing it with leggings and high-heeled shoes, as she did last February for Milan Fashion Week.
