Blazer/cardigan to wear to airport

(17 Posts)

I have bought a pair of Boden ankle skimmer jeans in seaspray which i was planning on wearing to the airport when we go on holiday in May. We are off to Menorca and am thinking it might be a little cool at night so was thinking i will need a cardigan, jacket or blazer.

This is my first link so hope it works

I'm only just 5 foot at a stretch so don't want a blazer which will bury me and also not sure what colour would go with these jeans.

Can anyone help with some recommendations. Not too expensive please smile

This orange petite cardigan from Debenhams would look great with your jeans and pumps. Wear it with camisole tops- white would be nice, but it would also be fab with a stronger colour like this green cami from Topshop.

Sorry about the link fail, only on the second cuppa & not totally functioning yet!

Yes that's the one, it is nicer in RL too!

Again, no sniggering, but I recently bought this knitted blazer. I have the silver grey, am very petite and it fits really nicely, better length on me than the model too.

Thanks for the suggestions. Will need to try the blazers on to check sizing as I'm very short.

The grey Asda one is a great price!

I can't seem to see the orange cardigan on the Debenhams link but will look on the website. I wasn't too sure colour wise with the trousers being quite a bright colour.

Oh just seen you're petite too thepurplepemguin. I think the silvergrey one looks nice too, and is also a good price

I bought an unstructured type navy blazer in primark yesterday for £12 and it is lovely really well made and a good fit. Tried it with a few different tops and I can see me wearing it a lot.

I was in M&S and they had the blazer Purple penguin linked too. I tried it on and its lovely although a little too bum skimming for me so would def suit a petite! They also had a gorgeous jade greeny colour in the same style in the reduced wool section for £19 so maybe worth checking!

Noddy, is there anyway you can link to it? I would love to try that one on without having to raid my local primark & a) probably miss it or b) they don't actually have it......

I don,t think they have a website. It omesin black navy bright blue cream and stone all together on a stand if that helps!

Again, no sniggering, I have this blazer and I get lots of compliments when I wear it.

I am going to buy that Asda one linked ^^ up there,

Just a quick update, i ordered the silver/grey blazer from M &S which thepurplepenguin recommended and it arrived today.
It's perfect and just what I wanted.
Ideal for petite ladies and made of a really nice fabric.
