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 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 – Why the Blazer Will be Your Go To Fall Jacket

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canadablazer inspiration

With a new season shortly starting, our wardrobe is the first thing we must get in order. Fall fashion is on everyone’s mind whether it’s going back to work or school after the summer break, and it has us thrilled to be checking out what the must-have pieces are for fall. Fall is all about layering, warm tones, and the statement jacket that is both chic and versatile. From the leather jacket to the duster coat, the new IT jacket this fall is one we all own: the blazer. The traditionally smart and sophisticated piece has been updated and revitalized from its tedious office look, giving a fresh contemporary feel to every style choice.  Here are our top blazer inspirations to rethink your next shopping trip.

oversized blazer

Oversized
Grab your dads, brothers or boyfriend’s blazer because everything is getting bigger and better. Not only does it look effortless and polished, but also the versatility is endless. Wrap a chunky belt to cinch in the waste or have fun with layering a thick sweater underneath your blazer; we are positive you will inspire others to do the same.

 

color blazer

Colour
Investing in a colour blazer has always been a risky move and often avoided because it wouldn’t get much wear. But pops of colour is just what your wardrobe needs for the fall and winter months. Colours like blue, red, yellow, and green are gorgeous for the fall and winter, and they can easily be transitioned into spring and summer as well.

tuxedo blazer

The Tuxedo
The tuxedo blazer is sharp and demands attention all on its own. You can never go wrong with a timeless black evening jacket that can be worn with anything from suit trousers to jeans and sneakers. If you want to break away from black, try a white tuxedo jacket to switch things up.

blazer velvet

Velvet Crush
Velvet has proven itself to be an essential in every woman’s closet. Not only does it feel incredible on your skin, it also speaks to different styles from luxe to retro bohemian. Versatility is key when making an investment, and the velvet blazer is on our radar as a must grab. A red velvet blazer to the Christmas party will be a showstopper as well as head-turning over your summer maxi dress.   

tweed blazer

Classic Tweed
The tweed blazer is often times intimidating and thought of as conservative. But a vintage staple like the tweed blazer is just the piece to add class and sophistication to any outfit. Follow in the footsteps of Coco Chanel and opt for a tailored piece that will live on for decades.
