We’ve already shown you how to wear a blazer for evening, but what about those oversized boyfriend blazers that have infiltrated women’s clothing racks? These too can be worn out to cocktails and brunch alike.


Take a black boyfriend blazer ($108) and throw it on over a vibrant cocktail dress ($132). Make sure the dress is somewhat fitted and falls above the knee – this will work well against the masculinity of the jacket. Strap on some gladiator heels ($89) to add height, and opt for a clutch ($329) in a complementary color. Finally, choose subtle but not boring jewelry, like a pair of dangling earrings in silver ($4).

You can also keep it casual when wearing a boyfriend blazer ($78) by keeping the color light and the style roomy.


The key is to keep the volume in the jacket and not on your lower half, so pair with a feminine blouse ($82) and slim jeans ($29.50). Choose some fun ballet flats ($145) and gold bangles ($158), and carry your essentials in an off-white tote ($210) that matches everything.
