How to Wear An Oversized Blazer

Being that the oversized blazer trend has graduated from trend to an outright wardrobe staple 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, layer with sweaters and coats in winter, and to carry you through the defrost of Spring. For LA, it’s a reliable essential top layer that will take you through the mild temperatures of Fall and Winter, and transition with you into Spring! Read on for some of our favorite oversized blazer outfit ideas, the nuances of 2023-2024 blazer silhouettes and how to style oversized blazer pieces with belts and accessories.

Stylist Hack: Buying your first blazer? Start off easy in ultra wearable 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! 

A Style Evolution, How Oversized Blazers Have Changed in 2023-2024

While we’re still seeing the coat-like layerable boxy pieces we’ve become familiar with, leading into 2024 we’re seeing dynamic angular pieces with shape-defining features like exaggerated shoulders, cinched and scooped waists, bell hips, collarless and crop-top jackets.

How to Style an Oversized Blazer

This super forgiving garment is easy-wear for a wide range of body types, and has endless styling capabilities. Belt it for a defined waist, don a cropped blazer to play with proportion, or let your longline piece fall straight down to give off a slimming balance!
Los Angeles Personal Stylist Meg Gallagher has key advice for how to style oversized jacket silhouettes for petites and curvy or full busted women:
For curvy and full-busted women, size down on oversized silhouettes to keep all the trend-right nuances within the shoulder and sleeve without all the bulk.
For petites, keeping the fabric off your wrists is KEY to pulling off an oversized silhouette. Roll up your sleeve, or use a jewelry-like sleeve push-up sleeve garter like this one to gently hold the sleeve in place.
