The boyfriend blazer has yet to reach the same levels of popularity as the two fashion trends which influenced it: boyfriend jeans and the boyfriend shirt. Which, for it, is a good thing. While the boyfriend shirt and denim trends have reached commonality and, thus, aren’t considered trends anymore, the boyfriend blazer has found new sophistication and will be with us as a part of 2010 fashion trends. In particular, we’ll see it amongst Spring 2010 fashion trends.
Who has designed them?
While you’re best off trawling vintage stores for a truly unique boyfriend blazer, the look has featured among several of the Spring 2010 catwalks. These include Araks, Charlotte Ronson, Cynthia Rowley, Boy by Band of Outsiders (one look is pictured above), and Elie Tahari.

How to wear a boyfriend blazer
There are two, simple rules for wearing the boyfriend blazer.
Make it oversized
Any boyfriend fashion trend is about wearing clothing that looks a size too big for you, hence, as if you’ve borrowed it from your boyfriend. It’s no different with the boyfriend blazer fashion trend here. The key is to only go up one size; it shouldn’t swallow you. Look to have the jacket’s shoulders coming no more than an inch and a half away from your own, perfect for accented shoulders.
Roll up your sleeves
No, this isn’t a recommendation to get to work but rather the crucial element of the boyfriend blazer trend. Rolling or pushing up the sleeves on the blazer goes to balance out the look by implying that the sleeves would otherwise be too long for your arms; also exposing the wrists to make the look more feminine.
