Our daily reports on workwear suggest a piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
As an older millennial, it’s impossible for me to see a jacket like this without humming The cake song from the early aughts, but I think this long blazer from Nic + Zoe would be an incredibly versatile business casual piece. OK fine, I probably wouldn’t pair it with a short skirt, but I think we can all agree that it would go beautifully with a pair of slim fit trousers or even layered over a pair of dark skinny jeans. (And fingernails that shine like justice are always in style.)
To my eye, the knit fabric leans a bit more casual, so I’d probably keep this to a business casual or casual setting.
The jacket is $148 at Nordstrom and comes in sizes XS-XL. It’s also available in a handful of lucky petite sizes, though they inexplicably cost $10 more. Sizes sell out quickly, so try Bloomingdale’swhich has more available including plus.
