Fashion world’s new invention: the cape blazer

May you have noticed that phenomenon one or two years ago, when a lot of famous stylish people, celebrities, bloggers were wearing their blazers, coats and jackets carelessly, as they just laid them on their shoulders like a cape.
I think an iconic and revealing representative of this tendency can be Miroslava Duma. A well-known russian style icon,a  regular participant and guest of fashion weeks,  street style photographers’ muse and ex-editor of Russian Harper’s Bazaar. At present she’s a freelance writer and owner of Buro 24/7 online magazine. Here are some pictures of her blameless style.

I’m not sure whether it’s become widespread or not, but I can adjust that it’s so stylish and can add any outfit a little laid-back, effortless look. It works very well especially with elegant pieces, which are already severe, so this method can break the regular wear.
I suppose that this street style habit could lead to the invention of cape blazers. I think it was a really good idea because you don’t have to be afraid of your blazer falls down or slides. Moreover, If you are too busy and have to run to catch a taxi or a bus, it won’t fall down and you won’t leave it. So this piece is very practical, useful and stylish. I’d like to show you some of my favourites from nastygal.

A balck blazer is always a must-have piece , it fits everything and every style.
