The Boyfriend Blazer.

Cut for a man, but made for a woman. If you haven't noticed, there is a surplus of boyfriend themed apparel hanging on department store racks nowadays. The boyfriend jean, the boyfriend vest, the boyfriend cardigan, the boyfriend shirt. I'm waiting for the day when they have a rack specially reserved for boyfriends...period. How cool would that be? We'd be able to conveniently take boyfriends into the dressing room to try on one at a time and have salespeople bring us alternate styles and versions until we found the perfect fit ("Excuse me Miss, do you have any green-eyed brown haired boyfriends in a medium?") And if they didn't work out once we got them home, we could return them for store credit.

Menswear chic is a trend that will never go out of style, ever since Diane Keaton rocked that vintage tie-vest-trouser combo in Annie Hall. Try on a classically tailored oversized boyfriend blazer to add a cool, androgynous vibe to an otherwise girly outfit. Wear it with fitted pieces like skinny jeans or a pencil skirt and avoid blazers that are too oversized....unless you're making an appearance on I Love the 80's.

...and tell your boyfriend to back off. He can get his own damn blazer.
