Goodwill Hunting “The boyfriend blazer”

1 Nov

 

The boyfriend blazer has been a HOT trend for the past 2 years. I’ve been craving this look but, can’t bring myself to the purchase the re-designed and over priced blazers that the department stores are carrying. I feel this look is better achieved with a vintage blazer. This past weekend I found a black, vintage, Bill Burns boyfriend blazer at the Goodwill! The blazer was in brand new condition and I only paid $7.50 for it. This look is so fabulous you can pair your boyfriend blazer with skirts, leggings, dresses, and skinny jeans it will go with just about anything in your closet. Tips for shopping for the perfect BFB (boyfriend blazer) at second hand shops. Go up 1 size, make sure the blazer hits below your hips, and is fitted through the sleeves.  Solid colors are the best but, if you’re feeling risky a tweed BFB would be pretty awesome! The object is to create a very chic and relaxed look. You don’t want to look like your five years old playing dress up in your Grandpa’s clothes.
