Blazers were once only seen in the office and were not meant to be a trendy, stylish jacket but oh how times have changed! The boyfriend blazer is a major trend, especially during the colder months. It’s perfect for dressing up a casual look or to throw on top of a dress when you get cold.
This business suit staple now comes in a variety of styles, cuts and colors, which gives CollegeFashionistas a chance to find the one that works best for them. Just look at how this Fashionista used her blazer in order to dress up her causal look. She’s wearing dark jeans with a bright pink top, all from Express. Over her top she has a camel colored blazer along with gold metallic toed flats. She tops off her ensemble with a statement necklace that brings it all together.
If you want to try something a little bolder than just a solid colored blazer, try wearing a printed blazer. There are many different prints to chose from, ranging from floral to animal print. They’re a great way to liven up your winter wardrobe. In order to keep the blazer the main focal point of your outfit, wear a solid, neutral colored top underneath. Fitted or loose, both are great for layering. You have a huge selection when it comes to choosing a bottom to wear with your blazer. For a fall look, try wearing your printed blazer with black leggings and a cute pair of heels. For a more casual look, wear your blazer with a pair of skinny jeans like this week’s CollegeFashionista. To give this look some feminine flair, keep your blazer unbuttoned over a solid dress and pair it with a statement necklace.
