The Find: Relaxed Knit Blazers

It’s hard to know what to do right now.  On Sunday, I didn’t even take off my pajamas.  Just didn’t feel up to it.  This week, I have several meetings that will require a blazer.  So I went looking for jackets that were a little more relaxed; jackets that I could wear all day long.

The first place I went looking was Express.  This <$50 Soft Knit Girlfriend Blazer caught my eye.  The relaxed drape and loose-fitting sleeve makes this a comfortable blazer for sitting at your desk.

Also on the knit blazer train, I’ve spoken before about my love for the relaxed, cozy stylings of the J.Crew Juliette Collarless Sweater-Blazer.  It’s like wearing a work bathrobe, it’s that comfortable.  For something a little more fitted, try their Sophie Open Front Sweater Blazer.  All J.Crew pieces also come in plus-size.

Need a straight up blazer?  NYDJ’s ponte knit blazer was one of the best pieces I purchased during the legislative session.  I could throw it on over anything.  It’s also <$100, runs in XXS to XL.

    The Eliza J jackets are also another soft knit blazer that I wear regularly.

    I’m really liking the casual ‘work from home’ attire as a focus, just wondering if you have any suggestions for warm climates? It’s already close to 90 in Houston and my home office (fortunately I have a dedicated home office, very lucky) gets blazing hot in the summer due to completely inefficient a/c system and poor duct layout. I’ve been rocking race tee shirts and shorts but I see more v/c in my future!

      It snowed here today. So I’m not really in that head space, but let me see what I can do.

    I too love the Jcrew collarless sweater blazer. I also find that at a different price point the ponte blazers from old navy are also very comfortable – and great for travel (when that is a thing again…)

    I discovered the J. Crew Factory sweater blazers some months back thanks to Audrey over on Putting Me Together and LOVE them. Very comfortable but pull a work outfit together quite nicely. I currently own black, gray, maroon, and green but have been stalking eBay for navy as well since it’s no longer carried in store.
