I think we can all agree that the oversize blazer has served us well, if not fantastically, since coming back into the fashion spotlight several years ago. Spanning all ages and vibes, the trend, which took on more of a staple role, has added a polished yet relaxed touch to countless looks and has been the go-to third piece for more outfits than any of us could possibly put a number on. As it always happens in the fashion world, there seems to be a change slowly brewing within the most trend-forward dressers among us, which can only mean the rest of us will soon be following suit—see what I did there?

Verbiage aside, it's true. Fitted blazers are taking over, and if the people styling them aren't enough to prove it, maybe the brands making them will convince you. With everyone from The Row and Toteme to Zara and Mango on board, it's hard not to acknowledge the uprising happening right before our eyes. To see just what I mean, simply keep scrolling.

Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour
Senior Market Editor

Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently senior market editor. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2020, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch 90 Day Fiancé.
