The Boyfriend Jacket – Spring Update

There’s a good reason the boyfriend jacket has stuck around as long as it has. It’s hard to find clothes that are casual and comfy, but at the same time chic. The boyfriend blazer fits the bill.

Exciting new colors for spring 2015!

If  you’ve never been totally clear on what a boyfriend jacket is, it’s simple. Remember the days when your chivalrous date would lend you his jacket on a chilly evening? That’s the idea behind this style of this jacket.

It’s slightly oversized, soft and slouchy, but not baggy, and it has a relaxed look and feel. Think of it as a casual alternative to a fitted jacket.

A Boyfriend blazer is a fantastic wardrobe staple because it:

  • gives your 40+ figure, which is getting rounder with age, some gentle structure
  • is soft
  • is comfy
  • is roomy
  • can be worn with pretty much anything, anytime anywhere
  • is lightweight
  • easy to travel in
