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.

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.

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.

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 – 5 Oversized Blazers to Rock at the Office

Friday, August 25th, 2017

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaInspiration Photo

With the fall season quickly approaching and the weather starting to cool down, it’s time to start prepping our wardrobes for the inevitable wardrobe shift that comes with the changing season. This fall, rather than opting for your regular 9 to 5 blazer, why not try a fashion-forward oversized blazer instead? Oversized blazers dominated the F/W 2017 runways by various designers and they just so happen to be perfect for the office. Here are five oversized blazers that you can rock in any office this fall season.

Free People Blazer

Millennial Pink
Blazers with colour tend to stand out at the office, but for all the right reasons. If you’re not afraid to rock a playful hue, we’re loving this silky paisley print blazer as it’s unlike anything we’ve seen before. It’s oversized yet lightweight and will do wonders for your fall wardrobe.

 

Shop the Look: Silky Jacquard Blazer, $162.56, available at Free People

Mango Blazer

Grey Matters
This classic checked pattern has been an office favourite for years, but we haven’t quite seen anything like this one before. This blazer is both sophisticated and professional, while the oversized feature puts a modern twist on the classic structured blazer. The subtle shoulder pads also give it a edgy ’90s vibe while still looking modern.

 

Shop the Look: Prince of Wales Blazer, $129.99, available at Mango

Mint Wonders
If pink isn’t your thing and you still want to experiment with colour, this mint number from Mango is just what you need. The colour is not only amazing and can be worn year-round, but it’ll also look amazing with a pair of black cropped dress pants.

 

Shop the Look: Double-Breasted Ramie Blazer, $89.99, available at Mango 

Zara Blazer

Fall Florals
One of this season’s biggest trends is florals, and in our minds, there’s no better way to incorporate this print into your wardrobe than with a chic blazer. We love this emerald print from Zara, especially for its silky material as it’ll help you instantly elevate your look and have you standing out at the office for all the right reasons.

 

Shop the Look: Printer Blazer, $69.90, available at Zara

Statement Stripes
Double breasted blazers and jackets might be a thing of the past but they are emerging into fashion with a variety of cuts and prints and we couldn’t be more thrilled. This double breasted pinstripe blazer is great for the office because it can be styled with a variety of pieces. The thick material is great for the colder days as well.
