HK Hit List #5

I'm only days away from departure, and I can't wait to look for this next Hit List Item. I've always loved the look of a slouchy blazer, and it's never been more hip than now with the whole "boyfriend" trend - jeans, sweaters and cardigans. Named as one of the top Spring 2009 trends to AVOID this year by this article, I can't disagree more. Number 5 on my HK Hit List, The Boyfriend Blazer.

I'll look for one in a bright or more feminine colour, and in a light weight material, as to avoid excessive drabiness. Below is a pretty linen one from Top Shop.

This beautiful salmon pink slouchy from Stella McCartney is a great spring addition to any wardrobe. Maybe with white bubble shorts or a slim pair of distressed jeans?

i also disagree with avoiding the boyfriend blazer. i don't foresee this being a short-lived trend, so there's no harm in investing!
