The big blazer look is not a new trend, but the popularity of this trend is constantly resurfacing. In 2020, every woman went crazy for this clothing staple, as a reappearance of vintage fashion. This fun look derives from the 1980s where large blazers with shoulder pads were essential to workwear. The boxy figure is chic and formal and can be worn on workdays or remixed as a more casual look on the weekends. In 2020, this trend commonly came in plaid, pastels, mixing and matching of colours and were often combined with patching pants. Thus, making it a versatile piece and easy to pair your oversized blazer with just about anything.
Scrolling through social media, you will be able to see that creators are finding unique ways to make an oversized blazer blur the line between business and weekend wear. Although the oversized blazer is still an office staple, these creators are taking it a step further and playing around with a variety of combinations, prints and accessories. No matter the outfit, there is always a way to add an oversized blazer into the mix.
