How to style the Boyfriend Blazer.

The Boyfriend Blazer is still trending. It is an oversize jacket that’s a cross between a man’s coat and the top half of a well-tailored power suit. Walking the fine line between masculine and dainty. A nod to androgynous style and a throwback to the structure of 1980’s fashion (alá shoulder pads). You can pick up vintage versions at your local thrift shop, or you can head to fashion designer stores/boutiques to grab this trends’ answer to a retro commodity. From office classic to uptown casual or with a rockstar edge, there are many ways to wear the boyfriend blazer. Pair your favorite boyfriend blazer with:

  1. A short or long evening dress
  2. The white blouse
  3. Boyfriend jeans
  4. Short shorts
  5. Layered tops
  6. A miniskirt

Once you have decided how you’d like to wear your boyfriend blazer, accessorize your outfit with long and layered necklaces, colourful scarves or bracelets - bangles, chunky wrist cuffs etc.

Below are some inspiring ideas to carry off your style.

                                            Go from daytime to evening

                                         Channel your inner rock goddess

                                             Appeal to your masculine side

                                                        Wow the crowd

                                                Take a risk and be eclectic
