Isabel Marant

The season's new crop of "boyfriend" blazers- in silk or cotton, with slouch or structure, printed or solid - leaves an impression that's both lasting and effortless. Boyfriend blazers showed up in a few runway collections for spring 2014, most notably Isabel Marant, Armani and Calvin Klein.  The classic image of a scantily-clad girl stealing her man’s suit jacket to keep warm comes to mind, but these talented designers know how to make the look both casual and appropriate for every day.  Proportion was key here- the shoulders are exaggerated and broad and the body is slim and tapered, ensuring that a womanly shape is still front & center.  Get inspired by the winning looks below and become a trailblazer by donning your own unconventional suited style that's sure to be the next big trend! 

Light Brigade

Call-it pin-striped brilliance: Ferragamo's double-breasted jacket shines over a sheer top with a luxuriously offhanded allure.

Neutral Ground

An exaggerated lapel and a slightly notched shoulder reinterpret a classic staple for a contemporary wardrobe.


Suiting Yourself

With a play on proportions and some key accessorizing this no-nonsense business look rolls up it's sleeves for a covetable, casual evening.


At Ease

Calvin Klein brings pajama chic to cloud-scraping heights with the perfect nonchalant pairing of an oversized cardigan over a grey blazer.

Night Watch

Ralph Lauren's double-breasted take on the tuxedo jacket is a dynamically swank must-have.  Wear it with trousers for the boardroom, or pair it with minimalist accents for the dance floor.

Crafting a Confection

A cotton candy-colored suit and elegant black top makes for a radiant mix that's the perfect candy confection- with just the right amount of sweet!

Ralph Lauren

Code Red

Color, meet cut.  Cut, meet pairing.  A drawstring vest underneath a bold hued blazer underscores both the drama and ease of this look.
