Weeklong Style Seminar: How to Style a Boyfriend Jacket, Part 3
Confession: not doing so well on finding a range of ages and body types to demonstrate different ways to wear a vintage boyfriend blazer, but I couldn't resist running this one, because this look is so smoking hot. Praise to Trendsetter Vintage for an inspired put-together of a classic double-breasted 80s jacket, oversized gold accessories, and leopardskin shorts. I repeat, leopardskin shorts.
I love how the classic blazer brass buttons (which can be intrusive) here become one more element of the accessories, carrying the eye from necklace across the midline to the cuffs.
If you're not model-slim, you could think about substituting leopard leggings--a jacket of this length or even slightly longer is a good friend to curvy bottoms.
Of course you would keep the shoes.
