Happy Monday everyone! With Fashion Week wrapping up (Paris Fashion Week ends tomorrow), I love revisiting all of the imaginative runway pieces and then reinterpreting these themes for my own personal style. One runway styling that I see over and over again, and absolutely love, is the oversized shape. Notice that I didn’t say trends… I find that trends come and go, but certain shapes and silhouettes are truly timeless. Remember the color-blocking trend? It’s back. And polka dots? Did it ever leave?! When done right, color-blocking is always stunning. And polka dots? I’ll take some now and years from now please. Honestly, trends are great source references, but reinterpreting these trends in a personal way brings life to fashion.
Now back to oversized shapes, particularly oversized blazers… this style is truly an essential closet item. Lasting through the decades, strong blazers graced the runway this season at the Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein, and Isabel Marant shows. A very wearable interpretation of this runway favorite is the boyfriend blazer. Oversized and oversized just enough. I love this Bardot boyfriend blazer (another great option, this Topshop boyfriend blazer). I adore the strong shoulders, double-breasted styling, and longer length. It looks great when worn open, buttoned, and belted. With oversized shapes, I love pairing soft details to add contrast and statement pieces to add more depth to the overall look. For this boyfriend blazer, it’s the lace turtleneck for contrast and the slouchy boots for depth.
Hope you had a great weekend and thank you so much for reading! And special thanks to Nordstrom for partnering on this post!
