I tried the tweed-y Next one and didn't like it at all.

Where else can I look? Either navy or grey. I am a 12 btw.

New Look have a cotton jersey one for £19.99 that looks nice. I did try it but it wasn't a great fit on me but I'm only 5ft.

Hush also do one but its about £55.

Topshop have a grey ponte blazer.

I've just been looking at this one:

www.zara.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product/uk/en/zara-neu-S2013/358002/1091053/BLAZER%20WITH%20ELBOW%20PATCHES

But haven't seen in the flesh, so not sure.

Topshop ponte blazers get my vote. I'm also a 12 and they're true to size. Navy available now at £40, or half that on ebay grin.

I like the look of the Hush one but it's got mixed reviews.

I tried the Zara one yesterday, it's nice.

Had a Hush one last year and found it a bit boxy (not sure if style has changed). Waiting for the Next one to arrive. Have an old New Look one and it fits well, is just a bit too long.

Saw the hush one in the sample sale and thought it was too short.

DanGleebals Tue 12-Feb-13 16:03:51

I love the Zara one too. How long is it annianni? I am very short and just wonder if it might be too long for me. Ive also got my eye on this one but wondered if it was a bit boring?

Anni is the Zara one with elbow patches jersey? I also tried the Next one and it was horrid on me, am now joining the obsessive search for a different one grin

I saw the zara one yesterday and wasn't keen on the tartan lining.... didn't try it on though....

I have this one here but in navy with black piping when they had a 30% offer - not sure why it is not on the website. It is quite a boxy short cut which I like (size down), the shrunken blazer is a similar cut, not jersey though some cotton polyester mix. I also have one from Uniqlo which is longer and slimmer cut which I think they do in grey, black and navy.

The uniqlo one is great, £40, in black, white, navy and red, unfortunately I want grey! Zara one wasn't comfy enough and is going back. I wanted a tight - knitted look, not sweatshirt material.

Annianni Tue 12-Feb-13 17:39:09

I'm 5ft 7, and it was hip length on me and yes, it was jersey.

I tried 2 similar ones, one with tartan and one without (i think)

cathyandclaire Tue 12-Feb-13 17:41:20

Thanks! Think I may be putting in an order for the Zara grey one smile

Dancergirl Tue 12-Feb-13 19:03:08

Not sure about the elbow patches on the Zara one!

XiCi Tue 12-Feb-13 21:43:39

Oasis do a nice grey one Here

TheBeanAndTheBee Tue 12-Feb-13 21:49:40

I bought the Zara one in a slightly different colour way and I LOVE it! Super comfortable jersey. I really like the elbow patch details. I'm 5ft4 dangleebals and its the perfect length for me, not too long, not too short.

JumpHerWho Tue 12-Feb-13 21:53:48

I have the Hush one, it is boxy and not smart, it's jersey fabric lined with fleeciness though and is lovely to throw on instead of a cardi or light jacket with jeans and flats. Not an eveningy blazer. It's not cropped, but not tailored in at the waist despite the single button. I love mine.

I've just seen this one on the warehouse website. Has anyone seen it in real life. I like it but can't decide if it's a bit too twee or if my judgement has been clouded by the 25% off voucher!

I also got the GAP navy academy blazer - don't machine wash it (as per label), bobbles very badly! I took mine back.

snoworneahva Thu 28-Feb-13 07:14:36

Have just order the Mango one and this one from Whistles using the 25% off code.

AlisonMoyet Thu 28-Feb-13 08:40:27

I tried the Zara one. Liked. But quite $$$
I am a 12-14. I needed the XL

Oh my Zara one was dark grey. Not that linked one.
