It seems as though menswear influences from the 80′s are re-emerging in the form of clothing and footwear with a modern spin. The blazer has become one of my favorite re-emerging trends as I’ve always found it to project confidence and success. I look back to Melanie Griffith in Working Girl and I’m reminded of how the power suit was once essential in creating the image of the modern and powerful woman.
The more recent trend in boyfriend blazers seems to take this confident look and turn it into something that is edgier, playful, and even casual. The blazer is one of the most versatile pieces I own because I can wear it with almost anything and use it from work to weekends.
I put this outfit together using menswear as my inspiration and was delighted at how the masculine pieces still managed to look girly and cute!
