CATWALK TREND DECODED
Yes, you can wear a blazer as a dress
By Joanna Kyte, 22 May 2017
The world of suiting just got a second-to-none update that’s being endorsed by Hailey Baldwin and the SS17 Off-White catwalk. Want in on the super-smart trick? Open your style manual to the blazer dress, now…
Edgy Milan-based designer Off-White knows a thing or two about mixing shizz up. Case in point? This two-tone suit jacket/dress that made its debut on the spring catwalk, birthing the idea that workwear styled with streetwear (note the red kicks and everyday tee) can create something super-doable.
Sure, throwing on an oversized, double-breasted check blazer (that has an uncanny resemblance to your Dad’s 9-to-5 vibe) and matching it with high-top sneaks sounds like hell – but it looks like heaven, for real. Make like Hailey B and boss the look with a pair of obscenely large hoop earrings and a cute-as top knot.
Try it out
Go in hard for the dream look with this fancy-pants tux blazer in, wait for it, SILVER. Style with street sneaks and big jewellery.
