Why you need an oversized black blazer in your wardrobe (and where to find the best ones)

Oversized black blazer

Recently, I’ve been on a bit of a mission to find my perfect oversized black blazer. So when I spotted THE perfect one for me I was quickly parted from my cash. Mine was a complete sale steal in Zara – £25.99 down from £59.99 – and since buying it I’ve been styling it with anything and everything in my wardrobe. The thing about a great blazer is that it’s a timeless wardrobe essential. No matter what goes in and out of style, you know it will always be relevant. It’s also one of the easiest things to style!

How to style an oversized black blazer

When it comes to picking an oversized black blazer, I would recommend going for one that has some shape to the waist. This will allow you to layer underneath it without losing your silhouette. As the blazer is oversized, go for a tighter bottom or top layer to stop yourself from looking drowned in your clothes. Personally, I like to go for some skinny jeans or leggings to really balance out the shape of the blazer.

A classic black blazer can be styled in lots of different ways – with jeans, a jumper and chunky trainers for a weekend coffee run or with a bodysuit, leggings and heels for an evening meal.

Whether you want to keep your outfits neutral, or clash prints and colours, a black blazer is perfect for chucking over the top of your outfit to tie the whole thing together.
