Coco Chanel, Katherine Hepburn, Marlene Deitrich all made tricking yourself out like a man all the rage. Today, stars including Alexa Chung, Kate Moss, and Kate Bosworth are giving menswear another try, wearing oversized jackets known on the streets as the “boyfriend blazer.” But that’s not the whole story.

If you are following Fashion Friday, you know Kristin credits the Olsen twins of Elizabeth and James fame with bringing back the blazer. The Olsens make a more boxy and longer menswear inspired version, but that’s also not the whole story. Elizabeth and James features three different versions of the blazer to suit every figure.
