Week of requests: all sorts of blazers

16

A few of you requested a blazer rundown, so here you go, starting with this super-chic tuxedo-ish jacket; here’s something similar in extended sizes.

This has a Chanel-ish vibe, but it rings in at just under $100.

I think that this one is cropped enough to look good with a dress, and I don’t even mind the puffy shoulder business.

This velvet jacket is very nicely priced, which velvet rarely is.

This herringbone blazer is kind of loud, but in a way that I think really works.

I like the shawl collar here, and it’s from Universal Standard, which means it’s available in pretty much every size.

I’m still a sucker for a stand collar blazer.

Here’s an  option for you petite ladies that looks nice and cozy.

Blue and black plaid really pops, and the silhouette here is so nice and clean.

Here is Rag & Bone’s popular Slade blazer in a very good oxblood hue. I also like it in straightforward  black and herringbone.

This tweedy number is nicely cropped, and has a kind of glam lady professor vibe.

Another well-priced velvet specimen.

And here’s another petite option, with a really chic snug fit.

I like the sharp peak lapel on this corduroy option, and you can’t beat the bright pink color.

And here’s a pale pink that is very Tom Ford for Gucci circa 2000.

I like that this plaid blazer looks sort of like a men’s sport coat.

I love a houndstooth blazer, and this one is nicely subtle.

And here’s a really statement-y herringbone pattern from Anine Bing that I kind of love.

Charcoal grey is perfect for pinstripes—against black they’re very I’m wearing pinstripes, which can feel costumey.

I love, love, love this Etoile Isabel Marant blazer—the maroon contrasts really nicely with the shades of grey and black.

A very of-the-moment oversized blazer that you could do some serious layering with.

This Uniqlo jacket is seriously cheap, and very well-cut.

And why not a splashy sequin blazer for holiday parties?

The snap button is a fun and unexpected detail on this vivid red jacket.

This double breasted corduroy blazer is snappy in a very menswearish way.

I wouldn’t usually think of a checked jacket as being versatile, but this one somehow is.

This pink velvet blazer comes in a number of good colors, and extended sizes too.

    You rocked this post, Kim!! Well, you rock every post!! Must be kismet as I wore my plaid blazer I bought a year ago to run errands today, Iowa chilly out but didn’t care. Like c.w., I have a side note regarding winter sneakers…my Vans high tops will be showing up today (no Nordstrom store in sight but their distribution facility is 10 miles away which spoils me 😍).

    I like that JCrew as a stand in the pricier Rag and Bone, so much so that I ordered one 😉 I am thinking I might change out and add some buttons to spiff it up some…

    Great post! For some bizarre reason I find myself hankering after that check! I am sooooo not a check or plaid person, yet my online shopping cart is to the brim….(Oy and Egad!!)
    Sidenote: I received my Sorrels yesterday evening and they are AWESOME. If anyone is looking for a pair of extremely comfortable cool looking winter shoes order them now. (and they make me taller!) And size up. I sized up a full size after reading the online reviews and am glad I did.

    i’m not in the market for a blazer or much else lately* – but these posts are so much fun to read . (that Tom Ford reference reminded me of when Madonna was friends w/ Sandra B – when she wore that high pony tail?). it must take so much time to put this together- thanks Kimfrance!
    *well… always on the lookout for good workout pants/leggings…

      I really love Oiselle’s leggings. I’m an avid runner and I’m on the larger size (a 12) and feel like they fit me the absolute best of all the options. It’s also a woman-owned brand, which I love. If you want something on the more sustainable side, I hear great things about the Girlfriend Collective, which are made out plastic bottles.

    These are all fantastic! I love blazers and am trying to wear them more often. I just bought a couple of “Chanelish” looking tweed ones but now I’m thinking about a couple more thanks to this post!!

    Great options! But I’m in search of the holy grail — a black leather blazer that doesn’t bust the bank. Any suggestions? Can’t find anything worth buying on the internet. Also — not to make this harder — but I need one that is not a box, but has a waist.

      It’s insane how much I love the thrill of the hunt, even though I don’t know you, Jill. I knew I’d run across a great leather blazer somewhere, but couldn’t remember where. It was Theory! Check out the shrunken leather blazer on Theory.com, which is marked down in some sizes and probably available elsewhere. But it’s the Theory Double Breasted Bristol Leather Blazer that’s holy grailish imo. It’s sold out almost everywhere, but there’s a 6 and a 12 on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Theory-Womens-Bristol-Winter-Leather/dp/B07MK5Q25Z and the same for less $$$ on Overstock. Both jackets are nipped in at the waist. Good luck!

    Oh I do love a blazer: I have about a dozen, of which only 9 are black. Now I have a few more to drool over…

    I adored blazers through my 30s and 40s but now that I am a girl of a certain age, they just make me feel frumpy and corporate. Am I alone?

      No, you are not alone. I love blazers too but I have stopped wearing them with trousers or any pants other than jeans to avoid the frump factor.
