The Oversized Blazer: Wearing the Trend at 50’ish

Women’s Blazers. 🧥

■ These “men’s-wear-inspired” pieces have been a women’s wardrobe staple since the 1950’s. Fitted blazers and pantsuits have been around for about 150 years, but today’s newest trend is the oversized blazer worn in a variety of ways. And can you wear it at middle age? You bet gurl!!

■ Remember when everything had to be super sleek and fitted? Well, keep your classic blazer for another day because the oversized blazer trend it just that —oversized! Big. Boxy. Bold. Think loose, long sleeves, with just a hint of those 80’s padded shoulders. If you’re my age, this should be that touch of nostalgia you’re maybe looking for.

This look can stand for an even larger size then what I'm wearing. I sized up to a Large for reference. Blazer - Ardene
How to wear it:
  1. Pair the look with leather leggings and a cami like I did above.
  2. Pull out your favorite denim, hoodie and sneakers for a full-on Dad look.
  3. Make it more office-appropriate with matching trousers and a button-down.
  4. Jazz it up even more buttoned over a mini skirt, dress, or shorts with knee-high boots or sandals and a bralette.

■ What’s your favorite way to rock this trend? If you haven’t tried it yet, will you? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
