Working 9-to-5: Blazers for Work

Jan 10, 2024

While most of my work days are spent in denim and slippers, I know that isn’t the case for every woman who reads this blog.  With ‘return to the office’ in full effect for many lawyers, staffers, and corporate girlies, I would be remised if my own “workwear” needs pushed me to abandon the ladies walking those marble halls.  Here are a few affordable blazers and jackets to spruce up your beloved basics.

This fringe jacket from Nic + Zoe is a great option for now and in the spring.  Wear it over sheath dresses or with trousers.  I like the soft green of this plus-size blazer.  This misses size blazer has the same fringe style in navy blue.

Spice up a basic black blazer with this belted option from Mango.  I like the belt for adding a bit of chic to the mix.  Even though I don’t need blazers very often, I bought this one.  I think it’ll look fantastic with a pair of wide leg jeans, silver heels, a camisole, and a big earring.

Since it’s January, I picked a few styles that easily work in other seasons.  This tweed number from Mango definitely carries into spring and summer.  (I also love the styling with the stripe picking out.)  Prefer a wintery color?  This olive tweed jacket has gold buttons and looks awesome with black trousers and a black top.

This windowpane tweed blazer is so chic.  It gives this great Princess Diana vibe in a style that can be worn with business or business casual pieces.  I love the lighter color palette so it works in winter and warm weather.  In the summer, I’d wear this over a white dress with the sleeves pushed up.

This red cropped blazer from French Connection is so chic.  I love it as part of a suit (wear it with a red blouse for maximum impact).  It would also work with winter white pants and a coordinating blouse.

The color of this fired brick belted blazer from Eloquii is very chic.  It looks great with all the fall colors.  It would also look great with a printed top and jeans.

    Thank you! I was a little bummed to think there wouldn’t be office workwear anymore, even though I totally get why. This post was welcome and awesome! Thanks!!!!

    I’m not sure if I’m sold on a cropped blazer – unless it is with a dress, perhaps?

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
