Wardrobe Must-Have: Boyfriend Blazers

The boyfriend blazer is without a doubt the number one fall- scratch that- year round must have. I have several boyfriend styles that I reach for time and time again. I’ll throw them over anything and everything- floaty dresses, skinny jeans and loose tees, mini skirts, denim cut-offs, the list goes on and on. There really is no more versatile item- look no further than the collage above for proof.

One thing to watch out for is too much volume, you don’t want to look like you’re being consumed. However, the jacket should be loose enough to allow you to move comfortably. To get the most wear and tear, look for a style that can be layered over a semi-chunky knit but will still look polished over a slim tee or tank. Other than that, there really aren’t many precautions to take because they is no wrong way to wear this staple.I always feel sexy and confident when I top off my looks with bf blazers which is why I’ve deemed this style a wardrobe must.

Read on for my top picks.
