Find of the Week: Cardigan Blazer

 

Sweater-Blazer, $138 (also in petite), Plus Option:  Knit Blazer, $175

Sometimes a blazer is too stiff and formal, and a cardigan is too soft and casual, but a hybrid of the two is just right. They’re not easy to find, the ones I have come across in the past are a bit too matronly. Many are boxy or have a “peter pan” collar, both design elements that will add to the lack of sophistication. You want to find something that has shape and creates structure, like this sweater blazer from J Crew (xxxs- xl in regular and petite in four colors.)

This is a versatile piece that goes to work or the weekend. You can layer this on top of a lightweight dress and use a scarf to enhance the neckline, pair it with a patterned shell and pant (with a leg of your choice), or, of course, wear it with your favorite jeans. Check back tomorrow to see how to wear it on the weekends.
