Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaOversized Blazers

It looks like the noted line “fit is everything” has become obsolete. Avant-garde fashion is continuously growing and oversized clothes are officially the new thing as it has been affirmed by a number of luxury brands such as Alexander Wang and Balenciaga. While many still choose to be old school and lean towards the perfect fitted look when going to a night out, stylists and fashion goers today are encouraging everyone the fashion principle of less emphasis on the human figure but rather, appreciating the garment as a whole and embracing the harmony between comfort and style. The trend has caused mixed reactions however we’ve compiled a few oversized suit looks that will potentially make you appreciate it better.

Oversized Suit With Fitted Bottoms
Leg-hugging trousers or pencil skirts will complement the oversized suit making the whole outfit balanced and pleasing to the eyes. Jeans may also be worn for a more casual look.

 

Shop the look: Oversized blazer, $89.99, available at MANGO

Oversized Suit With Oversized Trousers
Talk about comfort! You may look casual to some but just remember to pick the right fabric and style to successfully pull off this look. Wearing a pair of swanky high heels will instantly glam up the whole outfit.

 

Shop the look: Oversized Double-breasted blazer, $99.90, available at Zara

Oversized Suit With Belt
Putting a belt on accentuates your figure and diminishes the boxy look of the blazer. You may choose to layer underneath with a basic tee or turtleneck or if you’re ambitious, treat the blazer as your primary top. Make sure to pair it with fitted bottoms to complete the outfit.

Fashion Jobs – White Blazers the Right Way

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015

ST95-ADS

Personally, I do not believe in the “no white after Labour Day” rule. For this reason, I love to wear a classic white blazer as a transitional piece coming into fall. This look is so classic and crisp and really pulls together any outfit. I love to pair my oversize white blazer with high-waisted denim shorts, a tee shirt and sneakers to add some contrast to the look. I also love to see a white silk blazer paired with a navy pencil skirt for a more professional outfit. For a dressier nighttime look, I wear my white blazer with high-waisted loose trousers, a crop top, and mules. This piece is so great because it can really be paired with any of the neutral pieces you have in your closet (dressy or casual), and adds that extra something to pull the whole look together perfectly!

Vancouver Fashion Jobs – Summer Blazers

Sunday, June 3rd, 2012

In the summer we tend to pare down on our clothing layers. High temperatures lead to simpler outfits that don’t involve so many heat-trapping pieces. While we want to stay cool and collected, there are still occasions where we are required to wear a jacket that either cover up our shoulders or provides some structure to our outfit. Summer outwear is the perfect way to round out your office wardrobe, protect from the elements or top off an evening look. Pick blazers made with light fabric and consider choosing something bright to make your outfit really pop.

1.  J. Crew Maritime Blazer, $138

2. alice + olivia floral blazer, $428, shopbop

3. BCBG MAX AZRIA Metallic Blazer, $258

4. Zara Zebra Print Blazer, $99
