What’s your size? Today’s article is dedicated to the oversized blazers for ladies and what are the best and easiest outfit ideas you can recreate one the streets this year. I call them boyfriend blazers.
If you don’t follow fashion, then the first thing you could notice is the fit and silhouette of that blazer. That’s why the first impression might be like: Oh, that blazer was given by some kind of a rich man?
The blazer is still considered to be a trendy thing. If you are thinking of giving a try to an oversized blazer, then try it on with some slouchy pants, frumpy top, and some accessories. If it fits you and all sizes are correct, then your overall style might be called hobo-chic. If everything seems to be okay, then it’s time to add some jazz to your look.
The design of an oversized blazer can be long enough to be used as a dress. Yes, this trend is appearing on the streets and I have nothing against it. The look is appropriate for a posh evening out, a cocktail party, and so on. Plus you can try it at work someday, but I didn’t tell you about it. Plus, you can try the same oversized blazer with a cute mini skirt, shorts, or a dress.
Sizes, in this case, can be either slouchy or fitted, cause you’re playing with lengths, which will create a visual balance. For chicness and sophistication purposes you can consider: rolled up sleeves, wearing your blazer slung on your shoulders, using a belt over it, popping your collar (I can’t believe I just said that! Well… for cold days you know), adding a scarf over it, pairing it with sporty tops, statement accessories for example, and so on.
They are bigger than your classic blazers, slimmer than your regular boyfriend jackets, and long enough to cover your bum. They come in a variety of sleeve lengths, colors and fabrics from traditional wool to relaxed linen and everything in between.
The thinnest and most relaxed of the blazers are wonderful for summer because they’ll give you a breezy silhouette, but you can also use it as an alternative to cardigan over the colder months. Styling these oversized blazers is actually very easy when you know how. Since there are so many ways you can wear them I’ve decided to break down some easy outfit ideas for each season.
Spring/Summer Oufits With Oversized Blazers:
In warm weather, an oversized blazer has a feminine appeal. The easiest way to wear an oversized blazer for women is to wear it with a plain white t-shirt, cotton shorts or pants and maybe some sandals or sneakers. This look works because the top part of your body is very relaxed and casual, while the bottom half is still business-like. You can very easily add heeled sandals or wedges to this look for more style points.
You can also try layering a smaller coat over your oversized blazer if you want more coverage on your arms. Just be sure to wear something underneath the oversized blazer to keep your good girl parts safe and sound.
For a cooler look, try wearing it with a pair of chinos or wide leg pants, along with a colorful shirt like this one:
Combine your oversized blazer with a simple, loose white t-shirt and some neutral sandals to create an easygoing outfit that’s perfect for the spring/summer season.
Fall/Winter Oufits With Oversized Blazers:
Over the colder months, oversized blazers can be layered over a turtleneck and wide legged pants or jeans. If you’re wearing it with a top you can roll up your sleeves in order to show off your forearms or just let them hang down naturally. The idea here is that you’ll create an interesting contrast between the fabrics of your blazer and top (in terms of weight, texture and thickness).
This time around you’ll also want to wear a pair of booties to keep warm. Whether you’re going for a more sleek or relaxed look a pair of booties is an absolute must and you can add them to any outfit. I like the ankle boots feature but the chunky oxfords are also a great option.
In harsh weathers, an oversized blazer looks wonderful over long cardigans. You can use it as a substitute for your favorite chocolate brown, black or grey cardigan and layer it over anything from pants to skirts. If you’re going for a more relaxed look you can even try layering your blazer over leggings or tights.
For something winter-y, try wearing a warm plaid shirt under your oversized blazer – just look for items that are neutral colored so it will go with whatever else you have in your wardrobe. You can also wear it with leggings and a chunky knit sweater if the weather becomes chilly or even combine it with chunky winter boots and the same pants you’re wearing before.
My Favorite Oversized Blazer Outfit Ideas
Even though I provided some easy outfit ideas for each season, each piece of clothing is also versatile enough to be worn with a variety of different outfits. This means that you can wear your oversized blazer all through the year and in any weather! You can keep your outfits fresh and classic by layering various garments under or over your blazer. Whatever the season or weather it’ll always look great.
