How to Wear: A Boyfriend Blazer Without Looking Like a Frump

If you love the hip look of a slightly slouchy boyfriend blazer, but aren’t exactly sure how to pull it off, here’s a quick lesson. Start with a boyfriend blazer that’s a little slouchy, but has some shape at the waist.

Then choose pieces that will play up your feminine assets. Wear leggings or skinny jeans to show of your great legs, a draped tunic,, over-the-knee boots for a little oomph and a pretty satchel or shoulder bag. You’ll look cool and casual: pack this stuff in your overnight bag when you go away this week for the holidays–you’ll get a lot of mileage out of it all.
