Styling an oversized blazer…
I have talked a LOT about blazers in the past.. (and I mean a lot!) I currently have a collection of about six in varying styles and colours but I don’t feel like I am done yet! (You can never have too many!) Today I wanted to talk about my favourite blazer style, the oversized or boyfriend blazer. This comfy alternative to a tailored fit blazer is great for dressing up a casual ‘jeans and tee’ weekend look and I always end up throwing one on at least once a week!
How to style an oversized blazer?
To balance out the oversized fit of the boyfriend blazer, I like to pair it with a shorter hem on the bottom, such as denim shorts or a mini skirt. I am currently obsessed with all things matching so I also love making a ‘shorts suit’.. and wearing the blazer with shorts in the same colour! Or, if you are feeling extra creative, steal your man’s blazer and belt it in the middle.. hello blazer dress! Otherwise, for a casual day look a skinny pair of jeans and a tee works perfectly with an oversized blazer too.
I have styled my oversized blazer with a slim fit pair of ripped jeans and a longline top. Because I am on the short side I made sure to wear high heels to compensate for the extra length on top!
Try to avoid a knee length skirt or dress when styling a blazer of any type, because it can end up looking to much like ‘work wear’.. unless you are going to work that is!
Now, I promise I will shut up about blazers.. for a while at least!
