Anyone seen a nice blazer?

Something I can wear with jeans or casual work. Not too cropped. Anyone seen any nice ones? Thanks!

I saw a lovely blue and white striped one in Oasis I really fancy, not sure if that's smart enough though.

JohnCheese Mon 20-Mar-17 14:46:14

Here's a black one with pearl buttons from Zara

Had you any colour in mind?

JohnCheese Mon 20-Mar-17 14:48:51

Or Zara black one with the ahem on trend bell sleeve
I've tried this on. Quite a flattering shape.

JoeMaplin Mon 20-Mar-17 14:49:07

Thank you both. I like both of those, I guess I was thinking of a plain colour (i do like the Oasis stripes though ).... but want to avoid a 'work jacket' type look so I guess something unstructured or softer material.

JoeMaplin Mon 20-Mar-17 14:50:07

Although not too unstructured as I'm broad shouldered and size 14, so too unstructured can make me look like a sack!

River Island have these in about 10 different colours. Haven't seen in RL though so don't know what they feel like.

If you want something in a softer material search for jersey blazer. Or jersey boyfriend blazer for a more unstructured fit.

Hush do jersey blazers every year. As do Whistles

imjessie Mon 20-Mar-17 15:25:24

Joules have some nice casual blazers , around £90 I think .

JohnCheese Mon 20-Mar-17 15:36:50

Whistles jacket. It a thick waffle jersey. V comfy, I have one from last year and I find it great. It is fitted, which may not be what you're looking for.

This Zara Blazer is my all time favourite, really versatile and not too smart or structured.

Windowbasket Mon 20-Mar-17 16:11:09

I've got the Zara blazer SimplyNigella linked to - it's gorgeous.

SimplyNigella Mon 20-Mar-17 18:10:23

I'm tempted to buy a second one whilst it's still in stock as I know once it's worn out I will be obsessing over trying to find a replacement.

BarchesterFlowers Mon 20-Mar-17 18:17:59

I ordered this at the weekend. It hasn't arrived yet. 40% off the price shown so cost £71 with postage.

Pippin8 Mon 20-Mar-17 18:28:37

I ordered 2 of the river island ones in different sizes and colours.

If you have any hint of a bust they're a no go.

akwan Mon 20-Mar-17 19:40:17

It may sound unbelievable but Wallis have some nice ones in

PhyllisWig Mon 20-Mar-17 20:30:20

H&M - few different neutral colours, jersey but with a bit of structure. 25 of your English pounds.

PaperdollCartoon Mon 20-Mar-17 21:33:52

Bounce thank you for sharing those rauched sleeve ones! They're exactly what I didn't know I needed.

Jaimx86 Mon 20-Mar-17 21:40:49

Saw this one on Saturday and thought it was lovely.

Lidlfix Mon 20-Mar-17 22:18:04

I have just received the Uniqlo jersey blazer in grey . Very unstructured feel but not shapeless. Not lined but for £30 quite happy for it not to be.

RedMetamorphosis Mon 20-Mar-17 22:37:33

I have the Blush River Island one - disagree with the PP who mentioned a no go with big boobs - I'm a 32GG and the jacket fits great.

Oasis have th nicest I find. They're fitted and a lovely length/material.

I lost the will to live trying to find and managed a soft cotton material. It looks so much nicer that a suit material.
