Styling The Oversized Plaid Blazer.
When it comes to fashion trends, I generally like to sit on the sidelines and observe. But every now and then, a fashion trend shows up and I have to be an active player. This sums up my relationship with styling the oversized blazer trend
Although, if it wasn’t a trend, the boyfriend / oversized blazer will still be a default selection for me when it comes to buying blazers. I’ve always liked boxy silhouettes, and I believe that most clothing items are better a little more oversized than form fitting. But that’s just me.
The oversized blazer trend had a major fashion moment in 2019, and was the subject of many fashion blogs, especially during fashion week. With street style stars styling it in different ways – draped over a casual tee and biker shorts for an athleisure feel, to pairing with matching pants and heels for a more classic approach, there was no way I would have resisted its charm.
For this look, I took a mixed prints and menswear inspired approach to styling my oversized blazer for work. The mixed prints trend is one trend that I’ll probably always make reference to, as evidenced my posts here, here, and here.
I got this vintage blazer as a matching set (with a skirt), and buying it is one of the best buying decisions I’ve ever made. I’ve styled it with everything and in every way – Proof on my instagram.
Style Tip : Never say no to a matching set (that fits your style)! Especially if the top part is an oversized blazer.
