i have worked in downtown chicago for almost three years now and i have yet to feel like a real "grown-up". the last time i wore a blazer (along with the rest of the suit) was at an interview. while my office does have a casual dress-code i feel the need to step away from the cardigan and try something a little more corporate:: here's my favorite option that's far less stuffy than your typical structured jacket:
wool jersey-dry clean only.
available in heather charcoal or urban grey
additional styles and budget friendly options:
pique blazer with elbow patches_zara love love the color & buttons $129
sabrina herringbone shawl collar jacket_Banana Republic great detail- on sale for $99.00
Kimchi Blue Cutaway Cardigan Jacket_Urban Outfitters i like it with the belt! $58.00
Urban Renewal Vintage Boys Blazer_Urban Outfitters preppy & classic $48.00
