The Perfect Oversized Blazer Doesn't Exist — Wait, Yes It Does

Our latest “Editor’s Pick” is a jacket that just oozes cool.

Half of my saved photos on Instagram are of stylish women wearing — or nonchalantly slinging over their shoulders — an oversized blazer. In real life, however, I’ve long struggled to find one that fits nicely on my petite frame. Often, if I went a size or two up my regular size, the sleeves would look awkwardly long — even if I had them cuffed a few times, the jacket would still look ill-fitting rather than intentionally oversized on my 5′ 3 built.

Thinking that the perfect fit didn’t exist, I had almost given up on searching for a blazer for my wardrobe, but lo and behold, this ARKET blazer has changed my mind.

WHAT IS IT: ARKET Oversized Wool Hopsack Blazer in “Grey Melange”

WHY IT’S WORTH THE HYPE: From the silhouette down to its subtle design details, there are a few things that make ARKET’s Oversized Wool Hopsack Blazer a winner for me. Hitting just below the bum, the length of this jacket makes it perfect for pairing with denim cut-offs on warmer days, and a great complement to floor-length trousers in the winter. The shoulders are gently padded, giving your outfit that ’80s look that is still very much in fashion these days. Despite the broad shoulder, the sleeves are perfectly proportioned, so I no longer need to worry about cuffing or scrunching them up. The one-button design keeps the look of the blazer clean, making it versatile enough to be styled with both day and evening outfits. And for those who can’t be bothered to carry around a handbag, the jacket comes with two roomy pockets that will fit your keys, cardholder, your favorite lip balm and of course, your phone, too.

WHERE YOU CAN FIND IT: Shop the jacket in your size for $199 USD at ARKET’s web store.
