How to wear the Boyfriend Blazer!

Despite the voluminous hair and gianormous shoulder pads, 80's fashion was, to put it simply, FUN! The bright colors, over sized tops, leggings, crazy plaids and ankle boots made you want to dance to your favorite Madonna mix tape! Many of these trends have reimerged this season in chic, updated versions including the Boyfriend Jacket.

This basic fit can be worn by women of all sizes and shapes since it is more structured. The question that remains after making this fabulous purchase is, "How do I wear my boyfriend blazer and not look like I'm wearing one of my mom's old suits?" Here a few possible ideas:
  1. If you have one that covers your behind, try wearing it with skinny jeans or long leggings.
  2. Belt it! A menswear belt would be super chic and would play on the masculine look in a feminine way.
  3. Layer it over your favorite 80's band tee. You'll add a personal touch that will look fabulous with your skinny jeans and boots or kicks.
  4. Wide leg pants and a fitted, feminine blouse are a fabulous way to wear this style to work.
  5. Keep it simple by wearing it in place of your favorite cardigan.
  6. Try it over a short dress. Make sure that it is not longer than the dress.
However, you choose to wear the boyfriend blazer, make sure to add your own flair instead of exactly copying someone else's look. You will feel more comfortable in your own skin which will help you truly rock this fashion favorite!

We'd love to hear your suggestions and thoughts for wearing this trend!
