The relaxed silhouette of an oversize blazer has a certain level of sophistication that’s hard to compete with. This borrowed-from-the-boys style is all about the details, so look for a topper with a crisp lapels, too-cool cuffs, or shapely shoulders–most importantly, you want something very tailored.

How To Wear It:
Forgo cigarette pants here. Balance proportions with slouchy trousers or a boxy midiskirt. Crafted from lighter wools and crêpes, this blazer is all about the drape; go for stream-lined pairings like a silk blouse, or for evenings, skip that layer and show some skin, per Hermès (above, left center).
