Happy Friday, ladies. This month for the Over 50 Fashion Edit, Cindy and I are styling blazers. I’m a big fan of blazers because I love the strong statement they make and the polish they give to an outfit. As our lifestyles become more casual, it’s all about comfort so an unstructured blazer becomes a great option. Today I’m sharing how to wear an unstructured blazer over 50.
As always, you can learn more and shop the items through the red text links.
What is an unstructured blazer? It’s a lightweight, soft, and deconstructed jacket with minimal or no lining and no shoulder pads. They are the most casual style of blazer and are often oversized. Many of the latest ones are knit, which seem like a cross between a cardigan and a blazer.
This unstructured blazer is a soft Italian recycled wool blend with notched lapels and single button closure. The external patch pockets bring its level of formality down even further. It comes in 3 colors, regular, tall, and petite sizes 0-20. The website says it runs slightly large but not on me so I suggest you order your regular size. I am wearing a 10 regular.
What to wear with an unstructured blazer
Women’s blazers will always be in style because they’ve become a wardrobe basic for so many of us. Because the unstructured blazer is inherently casual, they look great worn with jeans. It does have enough formality to dress up, so try slipping one on over a simple dress, chino’s, knit pants, or blouse and skirt.
I paired mine with this super soft turtleneck sweater. The fabric is a blend featuring breathable fiber derived from certified renewable wood sources. It comes in 6 colors in regular and petite size XXS-XL. I’m wearing a small regular. The website calls this color white, but it’s softer and more like a winter white.
I anchored the look with a modern loafer that comes in tons of widths. So few brands offer widths these days, I’m loyal to the ones that do. Munro makes some beautiful ones and is committed to making stylish ones that fit. Did you know that 25% of our bones are located in our feet and almost 90% of us wear shoes that are one size too small? That’s more women than are wearing the wrong size bra!
How should an unstructured blazer fit?
Much like a denim jacket, an unconstructed blazer should look like you can close it, even if you never do.
