The term "blazer" was coined in 1825, and back then was thought of as a more casual alternative to coats. Centuries later, the blazer is ever-evolving, serving as a symbol of empowerment for working women. Once seen only in office settings, blazers have become a versatile piece. Today, blazers have taken the fashion industry by storm, establishing their status as a wardrobe essential.
Styled with a classic white T-shirt and denim, or belted over a prairie dress, blazers add immediate polish to any look. This season, your basic blazer received an update. Flooding both the runways and the streets, oversize blazers are the hot ticket. From traditional tartan and fine leathers to cropped and elongated silhouettes, there are a myriad of oversize blazers to indulge in.
