Oversized blazers are everywhere this season – so I put together an outfit reel showing how to style them. Click here to watch it – I’ll also embed it at the end of this post.
Here are three ways I style my oversized blazer.
1) Oversized Blazer With Jeans – Blazers + Jeans are a classic combo! A blazer is the perfect finishing piece to dress up your top and jeans. For weekend chic – wear it with a graphic tee and sneakers…and if you want to be more dressy, wear a flowy camisole and heels.
2) Oversized Blazer With a Mini Skirt and Combat Boots – oversized blazers look great with shorts/mini-skirts and boots. If your blazer is roomy enough, you can even belt it, to give the look of a blazer mini-dress. I paired my blazer with a pleated plaid skirt and tights.
3) Oversized Blazer With Faux Leather Leggings – for an evening look, you can wear your oversized blazer with faux leather leggings and heels. Keeping everything monochromatic adds to the chic factor.
Oversized Blazers are also called Boyfriend Blazers – and when shopping, you can either look for blazers under these labels OR you could just look for regular blazers and go up a couple of sizes. It’s important to pay attention to proportions, and pick a silhouette you’re comfortable with. I prefer blazers that are loose on the body but not too baggy around my shoulders.
My oversized blazer is from Suzy Shier – I love the pre-cuffed sleeves and the large metal buttons. ZARA also has a great selection of oversized blazers. Here are a couple of other cute options from Express, Nordstrom and H&M:
