Boxy blazer: What is it and how do we wear it?
Demna Gvasalia and Phoebe Philo made this garment a must have few seasons ago, and the worshipers of the silhouette put it on a pedestal in the street style.
Already wondering what a Boxy blazer is? Here are some features that we can easily identify:
– square shape, and hence boxy
– looks like it was taken out of your father’s closet
– It’s obviously 80’s style
– shoulders are XL or very intrusive
– a huge silhouette
Now that we have understood what it is, we only need to know how to wear one of the most versatile pieces of clothes this season. The “boxy” blazer is the trend of this spring, not only because it is a transcendence of the symbiotic of the male silhouette and the American freedom of the 1980s, but because it is literally a fashionable everyday uniform.
The trick to a statement look is to combine the boxy blazer with an oversized printed shirt and pleated skirt.
Another ultra-fashionable combination is: high collar + straight jeans. It’s a matter of masculinity, not only white shirts can “live” in boxy blazer-a. Polo collar jumpers are also ideal for completing the aesthetics of the eighties, accompanied, of course, by pants or a straight-cut denim. Add accessories as final touch and VOILA…
This jacket perfectly compliments a summer floral dresses, making it too informal and especially suited to street fashion, in combo with gigantic “ugly” sandals.
The simplest alternative to combining a boxy blazer is undoubtedly to be part of a two-piece suit of a masculine character with a big silhouette. Single color or not, this vision is a great way to perfect the look.
And last but not least wearing a tweed, and not just, boxy blazer as a dress is a solution that is only suitable for fans of risky styles. Just imagine, however, in combination with a white stockings with a catchy print and a trendy bag.
