One of the hottest recurring fashion trends this quarter is the boyfriend blazer. You don't have to be skinny or attached (or perhaps your boyfriend is not into blazers) to take advantage of this stylish look because there are labeled "boyfriend" blazers at many of the top plus size shops and department stores that offer plus size clothing.
So you have dug out or run out and bought your boyfriend blazer, now what are you to do with it? Obviously, that is a rhetorical question because I'm here to tell you it is an incredibly versatile piece to add to your wardrobe. Here are three looks that go beyond the traditional jacket and pants to get you going.
Boyfriend Blazer Look Number One
Think comfy, casual, and flirty. Pair your open boyfriend blazer with a flowing skirt, white shirt and cute flats or suede booties. Don't forget to scrunch those sleeves up to the elbows.
Boyfriend Blazer Look Number Two
Think casual weekend shopping or out for coffee with friends. Pair your open boyfriend blazer with sleeves down with a novelty t-shirt (my favorite provider is Threadless), jeans and your favourite comfy buckled boots or wedges.
Boyfriend Blazer Look Number Three
Give your sleeveless cocktail dress (or any shift dress and maxi dress) some coverage by wearing your boyfriend blazer as a cover. The sateen ones work best. Don't forget the sexy heels and bangle bracelets.
There you go, three completely different looks for your boyfriend blazer to take you into spring. This is by no means your limit for coordinating this versatile piece.
All clothing pieces including shoes and accessories used in the examples above are from the online plus size clothing shop Avenue (except the "Peace" tee design which is from Threadless) and used for educational purposes. Please bear in mind that product changes occur constantly and these items may sell quickly. In this particular analogy what is important is how to use the boyfriend blazer for three different looks.
