Why do women love the oversized blazer?
The oversized blazer is the prime example of the boyfriend style, i.e. the trend of adapting men’s clothing for women. The inspiration behind it? Don Johnson from the 80s film MiamiVice. It’s essentially about oversized blazers that are a little worn out and appear very masculine. And Princess Diana, Whitney Houston and many other fashion icons of the 80s loved the look.

The stricter version is often a little more structured – a striped or checked XXL blazer as a women’s suit with exaggerated accents on the shoulders. This luxury fashion is experiencing a revival in fall 2023 and can be found in the clothing lines of all fashion labels.

Bouclé is a rediscovered material for the season, but not always as outerwear – in keeping with Quiet Luxury fashion. Alternatives are tweed and corduroy.
