HOW TO STYLE AN OVERSIZED BLAZER

HOW TO STYLE AN OVERSIZED BLAZER

Oversized blazers are cool and fun pieces to style. You can wear them over elegant dresses, over jeans & a tee and even over a crop top & shorts. Sometimes known as boyfriend blazers, they work with a variety of looks because they are easy to wear and have an everyday appeal. As blazers are wardrobe staples every woman needs, investing in an oversized option is a great way to add a little attitude and intention to your personal style.

This smart-casual outfit features an oversized velvet blazer styled over a classic roll neck top. For an elegant colour pop, the baroque print jeans and faux fur scarf are perfect style additions. Burgundy is such a regal colour and always has a rich look to it, so it requires minimal effort to pull off such a refined look. This outfit is a fabulous choice for a business meeting because it has the perfect balance between warmth, sophistication and style. Oversized blazers look great worn open as shown in this look but for a more form-fitting finish, you can also cinch in the waist with a belt. This produces a nice lady-like silhouette as shown in how to wear a velvet blazer.

Finally, to keep with the black and burgundy theme, the black crystal necklace tied in with the look seamlessly. It is another stunning piece from the Abigail Ayoola x Graced London crystal jewellery collection due to launch very soon.
