Dark blue/navy blazer

Can anyone help me find a dark blue/navy blazer or suit style jacket that I can wear over dresses for my new job - professional role in an arts organisation so trying to strike a balance somewhere between casual & office suit wear. Am a pronounced Apple shape in the tummy area so am looking for something to create a waist shape, has anyone seen a jacket like this recently? Thanks!

Thanks, will take a look. Should have said size 14, Reiss is probably the absolute top of my price range, but could stretch if it's something just right & I'll get a lot of wear. Thanks for the tip re single buttonsmile

I have 2 navy, linen blazers from Jaeger, one "square" the other slightly fitted. Might something like that suit?

Hmm, have looked at the Reiss link, & they look perfect, but nothing in my size in my price range sadly.
