I would totally rock the over-sized blazer….even better is the over-sized tux jacket for evening. It seems once people became reacquainted with the extra large boyfriend sweater, taking that next step to the blazer wasn’t a far stretch. In all honesty, I prefer the 80’s camel over the current Calvin Klein. Pair it with leggings, a mini, or skinny jeans; whatever bottoms you choose, they must be tight to avoid that bag lady look.
