Nineties fashion inspiration is everywhere these days—from Birkenstocks to Doc Martens to mini backpacks and everything in between. For jacket silhouettes, the boyfriend blazer silhouette is back in a long and lean version, and is a key item in our favorite mom style icons’ daily outfits. And while some of us have our offices at home (as a SAHM or WAHM) or work in more casual office environments, the nineties boyfriend blazer trend is just as awesome and a must for all stylish moms this season.

A Few Tips to Strike the Perfect Balance for the Boyfriend Blazer Trend Look:

Tip #1: Avoid the Salesman Look – Go Skinny or Short. With such a long and dominant jacket on the top half of your body, it’s important to highlight as much of your feminine figure as possible for the balance of your outfit. Skinny jeans/pants or shorter skirts/dresses are definitely the way to go.
Tip #2: Forever Young – Yes to Graphic Tees. Layer over your favorite graphic tees: My absolute, hands-down favorite boyfriend blazer trend outfit involves a graphic tee. Express yourself in this nineties inspired moment with your favorite tee of the week. My go-to graphic shops? Azalea SF, San Francisco vintage shops, Urban Outfitters, Junk Food, Threadless, and J.Crew.
Tip #3: Punctuate with a Pop of Color. Your favorite red-orange lipstick, metallic gold slip-on sneakers, a shock of electric blue scarf—a shot of color will instantly take your blazer outfit from good to glam.
