The “boyfriend” trend has been making its appearances across a variety of women’s apparel since last year with hot items such as “boyfriend jeans” and “boyfriend tees.” A masculine twist on basic wardrobe essentials for the ladies imparts a stylish statement of confidence and effortlessness. The boyfriend blazer is the newcomer in this hot trend, breathing new life into the old blazer and rendering a fresh sophistication however you choose to wear it.
Two Fashionistas are spotted rocking this laid-back yet put-together trend. The first plays up the cool, schoolboy charm of a classic gray blazer by wearing it over a simple navy-and-white striped tee. The sleeves of her jacket are rolled up for an effortless flavor. The look is kept clean and chic with black skinny jeans and a pair of light-gray slip-on sneaker flats. The second Fashionista utilizes a boyfriend blazer to down-play an otherwise girly look by wearing it with a white tee tucked into a bubble miniskirt. Her look is stylishly accessorized with a black-and-white fringe scarf and retro black knee-high socks, while the masculine design of her black leather boots compliments the boyishness of her jacket.
For this spring, ditch the old feminine cropped or floral blazers and invest in a boyfriend blazer that is sure to become a classic, timeless piece in your wardrobe. With the variety of fits as well as the ample assortment of hues and fabrics, you can be certain to find one that is perfect for you. It is a must-have that will single-handedly revamp your closet for 2010.
