How To Style An Oversized Blazer

Blazers are – and always will be – a timeless staple in our wardrobe. You can wear them to work, or on a night out with friends. It is one of the most versatile pieces you could own. Oversized blazers were all the rage in the ’80s and for some time now, we have seen them make a come back on runways and with influencers. They are just as versatile as a traditional blazer, but to make it easier for you, we rallied up seven ways you can style an oversized blazer.

1. Cute and Casual

It’s a common misconception that we have to rock a formal look with a blazer. Even though it’s a blazer, it does not mean you have to dress up your whole look to wear it. It truly looks great when you’re trying to rock a casual day look. Since we are working with an oversized blazer, we can have more freedom with how we style it. If you are trying to keep it casual, pair it with a simple t-shirt and your favourite pair of white sneakers. To give this look a little more oomph, throw on some statement jewellery or swipe on a bright lipstick.

2. Dress Down (in) Denim

If you’re leaving straight from work to happy hour drinks with coworkers, switch your work trousers for a pair of deep blue denim jeans (or other coloured denim, depending on the print or base colour of your oversized blazer.) Style your blazer with denim culottes, skinny jeans, or for something a little more fashion forward, flared jeans. To give your outfit a little more drama, throw on your favourite pair of sunglasses or cross-body purse.

3. … or Athleisure

It is such an edgy look to style your oversized blazer with a pair of biker shorts. The pairing shouldn’t make sense, but the blend of formalwear and sportswear somehow works so brilliantly. Maybe this is what they meant by opposites attract? To push the boundaries even further, put on a pair of chunky boots. You will, without a doubt, turn heads with this outfit – but we swear it’ll be for all of the right reasons.

4. Femme Menswear

It’s always bold and fun to blend masculine and feminine elements to your outfit. There’s always an added level of dimension and style when you play around with the two, so why not try that with an oversized blazer? Opt for a tweed or pin-striped blazer and pair it with tapered trousers and a crisp button-down. Accessorize with a silky scarf and stiletto-heeled boots.

5. Mixed Prints

Nothing screams fashion forward more than mixing several bold prints together in an outfit. As a rule of thumb, mixing prints that have similar or complementary colour palettes meld the look together beautifully. We encourage you to have fun doing this with your oversized blazer. The more daring the combination, the better the result. Why not pair a checkered-patterned blazer with an animal print skirt or snakeskin boots?

6. Monochromatic

For something modern and chic, you can always rely on a monochromatic outfit. There’s something timeless and classy in matching each piece of your look to the same colour. To achieve this look with an oversized blazer, opt for one that is solid toned. It can be whatever colour you choose, though it is easiest to style an all white or all black outfit. To really knock this look out of the park, have your like-coloured accessories.
