Why I broke up with my boyfriend blazer

Blazer, Boyfriend Blazer

 This might not be politically correct to say (or more importantly "fashionably") but I'm going to go ahead and say it. I'm over the boyfriend blazer crave. There, I said it. But before you navigate off this site and shake your head at my vulgar idea, hear me out for a minute. I too was once a great supporter of the oh so stylish boyfriend blazer with its too cool for school longer sleeves that you push up for that "effortless look" and the longer length in the back that made it suitable to wear leggings with "sans bum covering" shirt. But nearly 15 boyfriend blazers into it, I have a rainbow assortment of jackets that I find myself not that interested in and a few old school just "regular old blazer blazers" that I'm constantly grabbing for now. Why is this? Because behind the mystique of the boyfriend blazer, for those of us girls that are more petite (I'm 5'4 on a good day) there is nothing like a well fitted blazer that goes in at the right places and emphasizes your femininity. A well fitting blazer adds sophistication and polish to any outfit from daytime errands to drinks with the girls at night (it's one of my favorite day-to-night pieces!!)

Check out some of my picks for a little inspiration.

Remember the days when clothes had only one name, like jeans, shirt, blazer? Back then clothing was so simple that it didn't two words to convey to people what you were talking about...
