Four ways with an oversized blazer
Oversized clothing is, admittedly, , hard to pull off. I tried this Kowtow blazer on before we photographed phed this week’s model, Kelvin, and found ound it only looked good on me worn open pen with the sleeves pushed up. If I was hunting for a lightweight blazer, I’d try a shorter cut for r comparison.
That’s not to say oversized cuts are only ly for the long of limb. If, like me, you have a different body dy shape and less height than Kelvin, you might be surprised rprised how a little tweaking and thoughtful pairing iring can alter the fit and use of any garment.
For any look to work, you need balance. e. If you’re widest on the bottom half it may look more flattering to add a little volume like e this up top, and balance it with trim cut pants or a dress with a straight cut.
You’ll know when you’ve found the ideal al jacket for you, as it will work in all iterations. And nd that’s good because if you can make it work, ork, a lightweight blazer can be very versatile. Colourwise, if pink is not for you, there’s also a chambray blue version that may suit. departure blazer, $249 Look 1 Shjark Column T-shirt, $149 Sylvester Utility pants, $269, at Kate Sylvester ester Witchery Zoe slides, $110 Look 2 Adidas XBYO hoodie, $160 Kowtow Classic pants, $199 New Balance sneakers, $170 The Warehouse cap, $6 Look 3 Shjark Boulevard pants, $339 Sol Sana slides, $125 Country Road plaited belt, $80 Look 4 Camilla and Marc Ettore dress, $699 Ruby purse, $99 Witchery Coco heels, $200 Vintage earrings, $4, from a selection at Arohanui Hospice Shop Levin
