How to wear a boyfriend blazer?

Wearing a boyfriend blazer as a fashion trend can add a chic and stylish touch to your outfit. Here are some tips on how to wear a boyfriend blazer:

Pair with Fitted Clothing: The key to styling a boyfriend blazer is to create a balanced silhouette. Since the blazer is oversized and relaxed, pair it with fitted clothing to create a flattering contrast. Opt for slim-fit jeans, tailored trousers, or a fitted dress to balance the boxy shape of the blazer.

Roll up the Sleeves: Rolling up the sleeves of your boyfriend blazer adds a casual and effortless vibe to your look. It also helps to showcase your wrists and create a more relaxed appearance. You can roll up the sleeves to the elbow or slightly below, depending on your preference.

Add a Belt: To define your waist and create a more feminine silhouette, cinch the waist of your boyfriend blazer with a belt. Choose a belt that complements your outfit and adds a stylish touch. This will give your look a more polished and put-together appearance.

Opt for Contrasting Colours or Prints: Experiment with pairing your boyfriend blazer with contrasting colours or bold prints. For example, pair a neutral-toned blazer with a vibrant coloured top or a patterned blouse. This adds visual interest and personality to your outfit, making it more fashion-forward.

Layer with Feminine Pieces: Mix the masculine vibe of the boyfriend blazer with feminine pieces to create a stylish contrast. For example, layer it over a lace camisole, a silky blouse, or a floral dress. This juxtaposition of masculine and feminine elements adds a touch of sophistication and balance to your look.

Dress it Up or Down: The versatility of a boyfriend blazer allows you to dress it up or down depending on the occasion. For a more casual look, pair it with a basic tee, jeans, and sneakers. To dress it up, style it with a blouse, tailored pants, and heels. Don’t be afraid to experiment and adapt the blazer to different styles and settings.

Accessorize Thoughtfully: Complete your outfit by adding the right accessories. Choose accessories that complement the overall look and add a finishing touch. Consider adding a statement necklace, a structured handbag, or a pair of sunglasses to elevate your style.

Play with Proportions: Experiment with different proportions by pairing your boyfriend blazer with different lengths and shapes of clothing. For example, wear it with shorts or a mini skirt for a playful and youthful look. Alternatively, pair it with wide-leg trousers for a more sophisticated and fashion-forward outfit.

The boyfriend blazer is designed to be slightly oversized and relaxed, so embrace its effortless and laid-back aesthetic. Use these tips as a starting point, but don’t be afraid to experiment and find your own unique way of wearing and styling the boyfriend blazer to suit your personal style and preferences.
