Tip 1: Opt for loose silhouettes to keep cool outdoors.
The Fall/Winter season is always synonymous with outerwear, be it trenchcoats, cardigans, blazers or jackets. One trend we’re picking up more often than the rest this fall, however, is the oversized blazer.
Style influencers including Aimee Song and Caroline Daur have been spotted donning the trend at a number of occasions, from SS20 Fashion Week to their respective enviable holiday destinations. But considering our warm, tropical climate, acing the layering game (without sweating buckets underneath) isn’t all that simple.
Fret not, here are a few tips and tricks we’ve observed from these glitterati on how to style the ubiquitous oversized blazer this season.
Tip 1: Opt for loose silhouettes

Tip 2: Choose lighter colours
Trust your science teacher: lighter colours absorb less heat. Aimee Song and Paola Alberdi seem to feel strongly about yellow and we do too! (Photos: @paolaalberdi & @aimeesong / Instagram)

Tip 3: Wear it with shorts/skirts
