It can be a bit tricky but I love this trend as you could actually grab your hubbies jacket and get away with it if you are ready to really work it. There are a few key rules to apply to this look that are essential and can’t be overlooked. 

This blazer is from Mango and I have picked up the matching shorts to wear on holiday with heels on nights out. The main reason I've invested in a few new oversized items is the love of comfort dressing with a glamours twist. You really can create any look you desire if you have the guts to wear it. I will say if you do push your style boundaries you will be amazed at how fantastic it feels. Style is so very personal and its always about playing dress up for me!

  1. Just add jeans is in any doubt about what to wear with a baggy blazer. Worn with blue jeans, skinny jeans for that matter it will look just fantastic. For the jacket, oversized linen or checks work best. The new oversized fit blazers are so hot right now. 
  2. Wear with the sleeves rolled up as you could be in danger of looking like a small child in her dads coat! I’ve chosen this jacket in a size medium for maximum slouch. Just watch the shoulders as you don’t want them to overhang too much! 
  3. Add heels with a boxy boyfriend blazer as this will instantly add the feminine touch needed to look seriously chic. 
  4. Keep your accessories on trend with this look as it can be hard worn with classic items. You need to adopt a real fashionista’s approach to wearing this look. And rock it no matter what! Wear it with conviction!
  5. Adding touches like loose waves in the hair, polished makeup along with a perfect manicure will keep this look clean and edgy. The last thing you want is to look disheveled. So make sure the rest of the look is as neat as possible.

So there you have it....a simple and practical guide to styling the oversized boyfriend blazer....along with me being my usual goof off camera!! Have a wonderful week ladies and I will see you next time with something a little different. I have a few amazing guest blog posts coming your way!
