About Chandra D

As a female addicted to retail, you can bet your multicolored platform peep toe pump that I'm always seeking an outlet to satisfy my craving for the latest and greatest in fashionable trends. I blog, I tweet, I Google, and I'm frugal. As a former starving social worker, and a future starving teacher, I know that every budget cannot accomodate couture fashions. So I surf the web, magazines, and multiple social networks in an effort to present you with trendy items and classic staples that will provide you with the tools necessary to be forever fashion forward.

Trend Alert: Boyfriend Blazers!

Trend alert! Boxy boyfriend blazers have hit the scene and celebrities like Lauren Conrad, Rihanna, and Kate Bosworth have been photographed in this fashionable piece. Boyfriend blazers get their name after the male significant other because of its boxy menswear inspired shape. In contrast, feminine clothing seems to add definition and is more tailored to fit the curves and shape of the female body.

You, too, can be apart of this trend and Bleu Dame makes it possible. You might be a little unsure about how to sport such a jacket, but never fear. Here are a few tips to get you started:

Pair the boyfriend blazer with sleek pencil jeans and a satin lacey cami.

Wear the boyfriend blazer as a topper with a short mini dress, mucho jewelry, and fabulous platform booties.

Be casual and wear comfy jeans and scarf with the boyfriend blazer.

Consider wearing the boyfriend blazer with a summer dress or tunic, leggings, and boots in an effort to move along with the fall season.

Here are a few boyfriend blazers that can be found on our website:

Rock Steady in Menswear Inspired Pieces

You’re not a man, but you can most definitely take part in menswear inspired pieces. Men can be very basic no nonsense creatures, and every now and then their clothing can be very basic and functional. Can we really justify a reason why we must wear 5 inch stiletto peeptoe ankle strap patent leather heels? Not really! At any rate, up for your consideration are trendy menswear inspired watches and fedoras that are sure to add a twist to your outfit.

Menswear watches are big, bold, and bangin’. We’ve seen numerous designer and top of the line menswear inspired watches in magazines and major department stores, and these watches are quite hefty in price! Just in case you’re watching your budget, paying for college tuition, or have no interest in cracking your piggy bank, we have the ultimate menswear inspired watches to tickle your fancy.

 Fedoras can hide a bad hair day, or can be worn to flaunt signature style. Stars like Jessica Simpson and Kim Kardashian have been spotted wearing fedoras with tousled curls, and even slicked side ponytails. Fedoras can be paired with jeans and a Henley tee, or you can pair a fedora with a dressy or club outfit like Li-Lo (see below).

Don’t worry; you can still rock menswear inspired clothing and watches and maintain femininity. The trick is to not overdo the look. Menswear inspired pieces can be more tailored, and structured to fit the female frame, or you can accent a feminine outfit with a dash of menswear pieces. Maybe you will add a fedora, boyfriend blazer, rocker leggings, bomber jacket, trouser pants, or a watch. The choice is truly up to you.

Here’s Li-Lo wearing a fedora and chic blazer:
