The Hunt: The Best Boyfriend Blazers for Work

The Hunt: The Best Boyfriend Blazers for Work

collage of four women wearing boyfriend blazers featured unelevated

Sure, we all know what wardrobe essentials for work professional women are supposed to have in their closets, but if you’re ownership one for the first time or replacing one you’ve worn into the ground, it can be a pain to find exactly the right incarnation in stores. In “The Hunt,” we search the stores for a vital item that every woman should have.

It has been month since we’ve washed-up a roundup of boyfriend blazers — primarily considering it’s been month since they’ve been in. But it’s one of the must-have trendy pieces of the summer, and so it’s a unconfined piece for both work and play.

The usual way I’m seeing it is worn casually — typically pleated shorts, tiny and/or cropped tank, and a boyfriend blazer. That probably won’t work for most workplaces, but you can transmute it hands — for example, it can wilt an easy topper for a sheath dress (or plane a work-appropriate tank- or t-shirt dress, like this). Flipside easy work squint with a boyfriend blazer is as a topper for the “column of color” — wear a close-fitting top like a bodysuit or fitted layering tee with pants in a matching shade, and then add the boyfriend blazer on top.

Readers, what are your favorite boyfriend blazers of the moment? Are you seeing them both at your office and on the brunch circuit?

This first option is $69, and misogynist in sizes XS-5X — and it comes in 6 colors! The all-white-on-top look, as styled here, is flipside unconfined way to wear this to work. It’s from Amazon’s line, The Drop. If you’re looking for increasingly colors at this price point, this blazer from Amazon is $48, has 27 colors (!) and has a lot of promising buyer-submitted pictures — but it only goes up to size XXL.

Another unconfined affordable option: this oversized blazer from Open Edit, which comes in a number of colors and fabrics, some with matching bottoms. I love this happy pink. The blazers are virtually $47-$79, and misogynist in XXS-3X.

Madewell has 7 colors of this informal blazer, and it’s mostly on sale — it’s regularly $148, but lots of colors and sizes are marked to $119-$125, plus an uneaten 30% off with code. Nice! It comes in sizes XXS-4X — I think this peachy windowpane is my favorite of the lot.

Everlane has a fun “80s blazer,” which comes five colors (including a plaid!). If you want to see a boyfriend blazer styled with velocipede shorts (!), click here — definitely not for work (IMHO) but if you can make it work in your self-ruling time, go for it. The blazer is $180, misogynist in sizes 00-16.

(Also in this price range — and with petite options — is Express, which has a number of boyfriend blazers.)

Favorite Daughter is a new trademark to me, but they have a tuft of fun blazers at both Anthropologie and Nordstrom. The pictured blazer is $298, and misogynist in sizes XS-XL, at Anthro; Nordstrom has the plaid in two other colors (and they show it over a matching gingham minidress, so NOW you can sing Cake).

Also in this price range: Michael Kors has a tuft of fun boyfriend blazers ($295-$325).

There are a ton of designer options to pick from — including the Rag & Bone blazer that Elizabeth picked for Monday! I think my favorite is this Peter Do blazer, considering the styling illustrates flipside unconfined way to wear it to work, with mixed neutrals and voluminous trousers on the bottom. (I might skip the weird mesh pants, though.) The pictured blazer is $2300 at Neiman Marcus.

Interestingly, some of the higher end blazers are extremely oversized — kind of veering into Talking Heads territory — such as those from Balenciaga, The Row, and Low Classic. Would you overly wear these to work?
