Stop, really quick. Picture yourself in the 80’s or 90’s, wearing that old-school, yet surprisingly chic, jacket. Yes–the one with shoulder pads and a looser-fit. The 90’s French chic look is back. The Americana coolness, looks like a boss, walks like a model, loves coffee and wearing lipstick.
Truth is, the blazer never really left fashion. However, after the turn of the century, smaller skinny blazers, soft sans shoulder pads, blazers were no longer the go-to-cool piece. At best they were the go-to-must-wear-office-jacket, that nobody loved but everyone had to wear to work.
F A S T F O R W A R D … A few years ago, the blazer tried to make a comeback. It became the cool, “it” jacket again, giving us all a chic and sophisticated look, while still seeming trendy.
This season’s blazer is a version of the 80s slouchy padded shoulder blazer with a touch of those 90s Versace and Chanel glam styles meet 90s Beverly Hills boyfriend blazers, all wrapped up in a very chic, classic, loose and relaxed 2018 style.
The style blazer everyone is wearing these days is long, past your bum, or just long enough to cover it, it has padded shoulders (lighter or heavier depending on its style and your preference), and a boyfriend oversized cut. Very long sleeves, double breasted, faux pockets, checkered, and very Burberry inspired.
