Weeklong Style Seminar: How to Style a Boyfriend Jacket, Part 4
Adorable, no? The blazer's styling is simple, subtle, 100% right.
The little round hat balances those ultrabroad shoulders to perfection. And more: see how the ivory band around the brim exactly matches the dark/light contrast in the buttons. Brilliant!
I also love how this vendor has left off any other accessories. A hat is such a punchy addition to an outfit that it's often best to leave it all on its own.
Unlike other stylings from earlier this week (see entries below), these proportions would scale up brilliantly. Jacket to the thigh, black leggings in a substantial weave, great heels to take a look borrowed from the 80s into right now.
