There was a time where I was getting ready to go to The MAGIC Fashion Convention here in Las Vegas - as an official buyer for Boyish.
I had no clue what to wear. I had nothing professional that was cute besides a black dress I used when I worked banquets. I was pressed, because I wanted to be taken seriously.
So that's when I hopped on Pintrest and fell in love with the oversized blazer look!
Over the years I studied and tried the ways you could put outfits together effortlessly with a blazer. And let me tell you... owning blazers is indeed a LIFE HACK every fashionista should have in their closet.
Here's why, plus all the ways to style an oversized blazer in today's world.
The oversized blazer is a very versatile and effortless essential piece, that radiates sophisticated, chic-modern boss vibes. It's a piece that can turn your whole outfit on in seconds. No more spending time getting frustrated trying to figure out what to wear.
Ways to wear and style oversized blazers
Monochromatic look: Choose a blazer in any color like pink, white, or blue, and pair it with matching trousers or leggings. This creates a sleek and modern silhouette, perfect for a stylish office look or a sophisticated night out.
Layer it: Use your blazer as a statement piece in a layered outfit. Wear it over a turtleneck or a lightweight sweater, and pair it with fitted pants or leggings. Accessorize with a belt to define your waist and add structure.
Dress it up: Elevate your oversized blazer by wearing it over a mini or midi dress. Opt for a blazer in a contrasting color to create a bold look, or choose one in a similar tone for a more subtle effect. Complete the outfit with boots or pumps.
Shorts and skirts: For a fun and feminine twist, pair your oversized blazer with shorts or a skirt. A high-waisted pair of shorts or a pencil skirt can balance out the volume of the blazer, while a mini or pleated skirt can create a playful and flirty vibe.
All about accessories: Enhance your look with the right accessories. A statement necklace or a pair of statement earrings can add an extra touch of glamour. Use a belt to cinch your waist and create shape, or wear a crossbody bag to add a casual element to the ensemble.
Experiment with patterns: Don't be afraid to play with patterns and textures. A plaid or checkered blazer can be paired with solid-colored pieces for a modern and eye-catching look.
Ultimately, the key to styling an oversized blazer is to create a look that suits your personal style, that makes YOU feel good. Hopefully these tips can help you create chic outfits for your new modern boss wardrobe :)
