Boyfriend blazer; an investment piece

Back in 2010, the boyfriend blazer hit the fashion scene as a trendy must have.  Now that it’s almost 2012, the boyfriend blazer has moved from trendy must have to wardrobe staple.  Every closet should have one in it and every gal should wear one.  Great for business or pleasure, day or night, the boyfriend blazer is a staple piece for any occasion.

Many styles are acceptable and what ever makes you feel comfortable is important.  Popular styles are the two button front blazers, blazers with pattern lining, blazers with leather inserts and blazers with embellishments.  As you can see there are several stylish options out there to choose from and which one you wear is up to you but we recommend avoiding a baggy,  ill-fitting style. A well-tailored boyfriend blazer is an investment piece and will be more versatile. Tailored blazers look best when worn with leggings, pencil skirts, jeans, dresses, slacks and shorts.
