i don't think it's just fitted jackets...
but BLAZERS in general...including oversized ones...

it's basically a return to tailoring...
but i still like it when it's combined with something soft and unstructured beneath...
for contrast...

:p

i have a few because i used to be a huge fan of them. think: 2000 'i'm in the strokes, honest' look. now i hate it for that reason. however, i did get a cute 3/4 sleeve black blazer which i updated with gold nautical buttons to look a little ralph lauren. i like the balenciaga take on it so i might try mixing vibrant scarves and patterns with my blazers and see how it goes. definitely no going back to the blazer, band tee, jeans days haha.

Would a long fitted jacket count as a "fitted jacket" or does it have to be short?

as i'm short and my figure is curvy this is the only cut that looks good on me. looser jackets won't flatter my shape, that's why i'm really happy that they're back (even though they never went completely).

Kindi - it's an oversized blazer so the shape isn't showing that much

Blazers For Fall

Cropped, shrunken, distressed, frayed...the blazer never goes out of style







By Kerry Pieri

After checking out several sample sales, getting dressed in the morning on these not-quite Spring days, and witnessing Gwyneth Paltrow's high-fashion marathon that was the Iron Man premiere, it occurred to me... The blazer is having a moment again.


Over the years blazers have been cropped and shrunken, distressed and frayed, and manufactured in corduroy and denim. But change is afoot, as women on the streets and models on the runway have been rocking blazers in a different way.


Blazers are being worn not just with suits, but over dresses, for day and night, with jeans and skirts, dressed up with scarves or dressed down with blouses or t-shirts.


Kate Moss wears the sport jacket perfectly, as does the aforementioned Gwyneth Paltrow, and the Olsen twins.



Come Fall their will be no denying the so-called "trend" - which sounds like a misnomer when used with such a classic piece.


Designers across the board are loving it. Chris Benz goes for the boyfriend vibe.

Band of Outsiders loves plaid and anything lean.

Phillip Lim never creates anything that won’t make you look like the coolest girl in the office, Ruffian has an updated Elizabethan agenda, and Threeasfour keeps the palette clean and sophisticated.


With bubble hems and trapeze shapes lining closets next to babydoll dresses and A-line tops the past few seasons, the time is just right for a beautifully tailored piece that’s perfect for layering.

Don't be afraid to mix the blazer with very feminine pieces, as the menswear look is only one way to style this effortlessly slick jacket.

Get the look with amazingly tailored pieces like this one by Theory, in wear-anywhere, anytime black.
