Toast to Tuesday: Taking the Boyfriend Blazer at Work

by Rachel Yeomans | January 19th, 2010   

Nothing says effortlessly in charge as does the boyfriend blazer. However it isn’t so effortlessly fashionable or professional as throwing on a sweater set. With the wrong pairing, you can easily turn a boyfriend blazer into a flashback to the 80′s or into a little too casual for Casual Friday. However, if worn correctly, your style can rule a boardroom.

The detail to constantly keep in the back of your mind is that the boyfriend blazer is oversized. Therefore, if you pair an oversized jacket with a pair of wide-leg trousers, you will be enveloped by fabric. Try a pair of fitted black slacks or cigarette pants with an office-appropriate pair of pumps instead.

If you don’t want to wear pants with your boyfriend blazer, think fitted. If you wear an A-line or fuller skirt, you may look like you’re leaving your prep school class. Wear a fitted dress or skirt with the jacket cinched with a belt for a very fashion-forward work ensemble.
