The Oversized Blazer


2019’s New “Leather Jacket”

Being that oversized blazers have remained on top of the trend for the past few seasons, we thought some focus on how to wear this versatile piece was well worth an article. For New York, it’s the it-piece to transition you into Fall. For LA, it’s a top layer that will last you throughout winter.

Buying your first blazer? Start off easy in the trendless colorways of White, Camel and Black. This will serve as one of your most trusted layers, easily pairing with most any outfit from jeans to dresses!

To contrast bulk with femininity, this piece is worn best with a strappy heel or slim ankle boot.
