Supersize Your Blazer

Reed Krakoff

Reed Krakoff

Menswear-inspired blazers are back in a big way, literally.  With built in tailored attitude, this latest crop is roomier and sharper, featuring defined shoulders (square or rounded) and an appealing hip and butt-covering length.  The strong silhouette is more assertive than "boyfriend dressing"- this woman doesn't need to borrow anyone's clothes.

How to Wear it...

1. This time around, forgo the cigarette pants.  Balance proportions with slouchy trousers and or a boxy midi-skirt.

2. Crafted from lighter wools and crepes, this blazer is all about the drape; go for stream-lined pairings like a silk blouse, or for evenings, skip that layer and show some skin.
