Best oversized blazers

Once considered only as a menswear staple, blazers are now championed by all genders for how they seamlessly add some polish and serious style creds to an oufit. If you invest in a good one, it’s sure to stand the test of time and quickly become the one item you rely most heavily on. Yep, even over your favourite pair of black boots or striped jumper.

A true staple of the quiet luxury trend, it seems that when it comes to oversized blazers, our collections are never complete, so naturally, we’re always keeping an eye out for wishlist-worthy blazers. And this time around, there are some extremely chic options out there.

Chances are, you’ve probably seen The Frankie Shop’s Gelso style on some of your favourite influencers, along with plenty of covetable examples of the oversized blazer trend from brands like Anine Bing. But the good news is, you don’t have to break the bank to pull off this trend, as some of our fave high street brands are offering plenty of expensive-looking dupes.

No matter which blazer style takes your fancy, pulling off an oversized layer takes some finesse; you never want it to drown you or for it to look like you accidentally ordered the wrong size. While the best-oversized blazers are made to sit loosely on the body, keep in mind that the hem should still hit no lower than mid-thigh, with sleeves that reach your wrists but don’t go over your hands.

If you haven’t got yours yet, keep scrolling to shop our edit of the best oversized blazers out there.

Are oversized blazers professional?

Despite their slouchy fit and laidback vibes, oversized blazers are perfectly suitable for the office. A good oversized blazer can put a polished spin on any outfit and can be styled up or down.

Can petites wear oversized blazers?

If you’re petite, look for blazers that fit properly across your shoulders and that are proportioned correctly for your size – especially if it’s a longline style. The length of your sleeves can also be crucial in styling petite figures, if your sleeves are too long you could risk making your torso look longer compared to your legs. There are plenty of great oversized blazers for petites on the high street, so make sure to seek out petite styles to get the best fit tailored to you.

How to wear oversized blazers?

The key to making an oversized blazer look good is to balance the proportions of your outfit. Balance out the bulkiness of the jacket by opting for a more fitted top or blouse underneath and pair with slim-fit jeans or leggings to emphasise the blazer. For a more laidback look, try pairing your blazer with cargo trousers or joggers.

How should oversized blazer fit?

Your blazer should fit comfortably in the shoulders without slipping or pulling. It also shouldn’t be too roomy in the shoulders, make sure that the seams are centered and that the edges don’t extend past your shoulders.

A good fitting blazer will fit you comfortably at your widest point, whether that be your chest, shoulders or stomach. When you’re shopping for a new blazer, try wearing a long sleeve top underneath to make sure you’re getting the perfect fit that won’t be too snug.
