The Flattering Boyfriend Blazer
The flattering boyfriend blazer is a super versatile and classy jacket. Originally, the boyfriend blazer was derived from the man’s power suit back in 80’s as a way to keep the growing population of women in the work-force looking professional in the corporate world. The original boyfriend blazer had many unflattering features. It was very long (about mid-thigh), shapeless (think boxy), and bulky. It did nothing for women’s figures except hide them. The new version is much sleeker. The length has shortened a bit, but is still longer than your average blazer. A modernized boyfriend blazer will sit near the top your hip. Any lower and you might have an un-flattering boyfriend blazer from the 80’s!
The boyfriend blazer flatters women’s figures because of the structured fit in the seams of the blazer narrowing the waistline. In addition, the button at the waistline highlights your teeny-tiny waistline, which creates an oh-so flattering hour-glass shape. It’s truly amazing how one simple jacket can slim your figure by to 10 lbs. Quite a flattering feature, right?
Not only is the boyfriend blazer slimming, it is super versatile! I LOVE pairing my boyfriend blazer with jeans. It is safe to wear your flattering boyfriend blazer with ANY type of jeans…capris, skinny, flare, white jeans, and, even, neon jeans! Not to mention dresses, skirts, and shorts!
Needless to say, the boyfriend blazer is flattering, fabulous and ultra-feminine piece you must get your hands on! Many retailers have the flattering boyfriend blazer at prices suitable for your budget.
