How To Wear A Strong Blazer (Without Resembling A Line Backer)

One of the season’s most audacious looks is the strong shoulder blazer. Victoria Beckham, Kate Moss, and Rihanna have all donned the signature Balmain Strong Shoulder Blazer from the Fall 2009 collection, but now, the style has trickled down to tops (case in point: Silence and Noise Strong Shirt Blouse), dresses (loving this Elizabeth and James T-Shirt Dress), and sweaters.

Here’s a quick tutorial on how to wear this ensemble without looking like you competed in last night’s Superbowl.

Start with the perfect strong shoulder blazer, the Elizabeth And James Blade Runner Jacket ($425). It has a notched waist, single-button closure, and classic lapels so that you can wear this blazer after the strong shoulder trend has faded.

Wear a simple, white tee underneath and tack on a cool skirt in neutral gray.

Finish the look with tall black boots and a long, multi-chain necklace. If it’s cold, you can add on black tights as well.

If you love this look, be sure to look at our favorite jackets and our guide to blazers. We also offer advice on how to style nearly any hard-to-wear fashion piece.
