How to Wear an Oversized Blazer

Wear to Work
Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

It’s no secret that we’re big fans of of the oversized, man-tailored blazer.  The look is very sophisticated and worldly, with a European flair.  But how do you wear an oversized blazer?  Omiru shows you how to wear an oversized blazer without looking overpowered:

1.  Start with an oversized blazer that hits at hip-length.  We love the dramatic shawl collar on this dinner jacket.
2.  Layer a fitted blouse underneath the oversized blazer.  We chose a bright green ruffled blouse to pair with the white dinner jacket.  The bright color makes the white in the blazer pop (and vice versa), and the ruffles add a bit of visual drama, drawing attention up to your face.
3.  Slip on a fitted skirt under the oversized blazer to complete the big-over-small look.  The core of your outfit - the blouse and the skirt - should fit somewhat snugly in order to contrast with the oversized blazer. 
4.  Finish off the outfit with a tote bag and a pair of chic ankle boots.  We love how the brown accessories pair with the bright green and bright blue in the outfit.

BTW - this is a great outfit for work, especially if you work in a creative environment.
