Hi, I am trying to find a suit jacket or blazer and it is proving impossible. There is one on ASOS which I ordered, but the material is grim. It is too thick. I want something that is thin, light, that I can keep on at work during the day. Black, dark grey would be great, pinstriped or plain.

I would like a masculine styled one, the problem is that I am really small across the shoulders (size 4/6) so everything just hangs off me unless it fits really well. I am also really short (5ft 1).

My budget is up to about £60 which I know is not much but I am skint. Any suggestions gratefully received!

Somebody posted asking for advice on this Topshop one and I admired it. Sounds like it may fit the bill for you too.

ooh some of those hobbs ones might work...topshop one sadly not as it needs to be long-sleeved, forgot to mention that.

Zara have loads at the moment such as [ this]], I'm a size 6ish but found a couple that fitted really nicely, there was one in particular that was pretty narrow and really soft, it hung rather than being stiff, can't tell from the website which one it is. Go in and have a look if you can

I bought this one from the Next Sale as I'm also petite. It's the soft touch unlined grey jacket:

I'm between a 10 and 12 and kept the 10 so the 6 could be a little big for you but a bargain at £20!
