What’s the one piece this very moment that can last forever in your closet and still always seem current and modern? Straight off your beau's back -- the Boyfriend Blazer!
I just love this look -- not just because it covers up my tuchus but because it works with everything. You can wear it with trousers or a pencil skirt, over a sequined mini-dress or rocker tee and jeans. See?
Some Boyfriend Blazer rules to live by:
- You can style this with boyfriend jeans. Just make sure you put a sexy high heel with it.
- Don't borrow a man's jacket. The fit won't be as flattering.
- Mix it up with a romantic tank top with ruffles or something feminine.
- Turn up the cuffs if the lining is nice. If not, go to the tailor and have it fitted properly.
