WiW: Orphan out to Play! Open or Close?

I bought this blazer at least a year ago and it has slightly more of a boxy feel than I prefer these days, but it is so cheerful! Red! Dots!!

Should I try to tailor it when I get home?

    I don't see anything boxy about it. Lovely, cheerful red blazer that should get to come out and play!

    You should wear this more often, it looks lovely :) I prefer it open, but either way is great.

    I like it open, and I don't see any boxiness!

    Why aren't you wearing this polka dotted beauty lyn? It looks fab on you and I don't see a hint of boxiness at all. I like it open so your pattern mixed top and belt show but then when you need to be all authoritative, you can button it up.

    No boxiness! Wear, wear, wear! I like it closed and open, but open is more casual

    I see what you mean but probably not worth tailoring. Looks good as is.

    This is such a beautiful blazer and the fit does not look boxy at all. Like harmonica said, wear, wear, wear!

    This is perfect for your style! It's fun yet professional. I don't see it as boxy. I like it both opened and closed.

    I prefer it open in this outfit, anyway, too. You look adorable and pulled together as always.

    This should get more playtime. Looks wonderful on you.

    This looks great on you imo. You look so good in a pencil skirt :)

    This is such a cute jacket and not boxy at all to my eye. Love the dots!
