Style Guide: Boyfriend Blazer

Lifestyle

January 13, 2020

I think that this caldwell boyfriend blazer from madewell might be the hero of my fall and winter wardrobe. I have worn in at least ten different ways and I keep on thinking of more and more. (ps I’ve been saving them on my pinterest board) One of my Instagram friends sent me this idea when I was tossing around the idea of keeping the feathered maxi skirt from Anthropologie and I thought why not style it with Tulle!

It took me a bit of adjusting to get the belt just right but I like how 90’s belting a jacket felt again. If I only would have saved my banana clip… (Can we please bring those back? The banana clip made styling curly hair sooooo easy. I mean we’ve already welcomed back scrunchies?)

skirt: anthropologie sold out. Similar here and here ($40!)
Jacket: Madewell Caldwell Jacket Medium
Belt: Atlantic Pacific (M/L)
Coat: Kate Spade (runs big I’m wearing a 6)
Boots: Tory Burch

 

Here are some tips for pulling off this look

  • I found the best place for the belt was just under the bust. Like a nice boob shelf lol.
  • Use a wide enough belt to stand out against a patterned blazer. I tried it with one of my skinnier ones and it just got kind of lost.
  • use a solid neutral colored belt.
  • keep it simple on top.. my black tank top was in the wash, this is a sports bra (shhh don’t tell)
  • I tried this look with flats but the glimpse of leg made it seem really choppy so I went with a boot.

I just ordered this exact blazer in a second color because it fit so well and i’ve worn it so many times. It does run a tad big but not big enough to go down a size. I took a medium in it.

Check out how else I styled it here with the matching pants.
