Recessionista: My Boyfriend's Back

Celebrity trend watch: the Boyfriend Blazer is hanging on every young Hollywood shoulder.

It's the most important fashion trend that ends up in almost every conversation, look, suggestion, or tip. Spawned from the menswear trend that was popular almost two years ago and Kate Moss' Topshop creation, this oversized, sexy and slouchy jacket keeps you warm on cool nights and you can make it more feminine by mixing flirty pieces like short and sweet dresses and a sparkly top over slim jeans.

Check out Kate Moss' hot designer line for Topshop!

TIP: You are advised to buy your own jacket and not actually borrow your boyfriend's, because as big and boxy as the trend is, the jacket still needs to fit you in the back, under the arm and at the wrist. The tailoring and fit is always key to a good look.

We love the price of this jacket from Express: $79.50.
