Hot or Not? The Boyfriend Blazer

The boyfriend blazer is a must-have fashion item for the fall/winter season.  I’m about to show my age (again), but I remember the first time this trend was hot in the ’80s. Back then, the style was typified by a single button and huge shoulder pads.

The boyfriend blazer I sported in high school came from the Limited, and was grey with a plaid pattern, double-breasted, and had shoulder pads so big I felt like a linebacker.

The new version of the boyfriend blazer seems less tomboyish and a little sleeker. I found these two great jackets on Old Navy‘s website.  Better yet, you get 30% Off any purchase if you use your Old Navy card!

What do you think — are boyfriend blazers Hot or Not?
