Blazers are taking over again. And it might seem silly to be surprised. I mean, there wasn’t a day that we didn’t see someone wearing this clothing piece. Few decades ago, blazers were a symbol of female empowerment and freedom. From the Suffragette suit in 1910 as a direct response to the silly hobble skirt (long skirts that were narrow at the hem to significantly impede the wearer’s stride) to the first female suit – trimmed jacket with a matching ankle-length skirt, designed by Coco Chanel… wearing blazer then was all about being bold and brave. And it still is. But also they are fun, versatile, and it will make you feel like you’re about to conquer your day- no matter how you style the look. Let’s just say blazers now are a whole new dimension. And anything but boring.
So you may ask yourself, how to wear it? Here are our tips and tricks.
Oversized blazer is perfect for all you layer-lovers out there. Including us! Pair it with a pair of jeans and ankle boots and layer it over a simple cotton tee or a cable knit sweater for a slightly preppier look. This outfit will work everywhere – from the office to the casual coffee with your friends.
MIX IT UP
To make it look cool and fashion-forward, mix textures and patterns. Checked blazer and leather trousers is definitely our favorite combo. It looks super stylish and chic. You can also incorporate textures that you may already have in your wardrobe like denim, or suede…
THE BLAZER DRESS
We are loving the whole blazer dress thing that is happening right now! They are so versatile. For the day look, wear the blazer dress with sneakers, and for the night look with sock boots.
