The blazer is bigger than ever

The blazer is a staple in women’s fashion, and these days, it’s being worn for every occasion, from going to work to going out on the town. It’s a wardrobe item that has remained relevant through the decades, but blazers are only getting bigger.

Not just the trend, but the actual size of the jacket. The oversized blazer is becoming a favorite of stylish women, especially as part of a matching set. Longer jackets allow suit sets to take on new life, giving them a fun and trendy twist. Whether it’s the typical pairing of jacket and pants, or a short set with a top, local boutiques are delivering unique takes on the trend.
