Fall Fashion Try-On Haul: Denim, Jackets & Blazers

Happy Friday, friends! I don’t know about you, but I’m struggling to stay afloat these days. ‘Tis the season, I guess!

I’ve got a lot of things to show you, but I’ll have to hold some for next week… or at least, until tomorrow.

Maybe I can do a Part II, if this afternoon doesn’t get too crazy. But for now, I’ve got a bunch of denim, as well as a few jackets and blazers to share with you! Oh, and a couple pairs of shoes, too.

Also, Nordstrom is doing Triple Points, plus they have a Limited Time Sale on a nice selection of items (including these MOTHER Weekenders and my Marc Fisher Ulani Booties.)

And Bloomingdale’s is doing 25% off a large selection of items with a Bloomingdale’s card and 20% off without. My favorite Rails stripe cardigan is included, as well as a bunch of denim like the AG Mari and PAIGE Laurel High Rise Flares, along with the jeans in this post.

Okay, let’s get started!

Fall Fashion Try-On Haul: Denim, Jackets & Blazers

SIZING NOTES: I’m 5’5″ and I usually wear a small in tops and dresses, a 29 in jeans, and a size 8 shoe. Gifted items are indicated by c/o; everything else I purchased myself.

In last week’s try-on haul, I said I was ordering a bunch of black jeans because they’re my go-to for pairing with sweaters and blouses for date nights and Sunday church services during the fall and winter, and mine are all getting old and tired.

This week, I tried more black jeans in different lengths and silhouettes, as well as a new pair of blue jeans. I’m looking for a pair of wide leg or bootcut black jeans, and I’m also trying to find a good replacement for my old Fidelty Cher slim straight ankle jeans that I love, but I can no longer link. I also think I’d like an extra inch in the length.

So, let me show you what I found!

MOTHER The Dazzler Mid Rise Ankle Straight Leg Jeans in Deep End

at Nordstrom (29) // Rails cardigan – on sale! (S) // Marc Fisher flats (8)

This is another pair of washed black straight ankle jeans, and I tried the same style last week in a blue denim wash. They have a 27″ inseam, 14″ leg opening, 10″ front rise; and the fabric is a soft and stretchy 71% cotton, 23% modal, 4% polyester, 2% elastane.

Here’s what Nordstrom has to say about them:

Made from stretch-kissed denim in a beautiful inky wash, these ankle-length straight-leg jeans are sure to be a favorite for everyday casual looks.

They feel really good on; I love the soft and stretchy fabric, which is hard to find in a black wash.

I like the fit through the legs, and I don’t mind the mid-rise, but the length just looks off to me now. It’s funny, I loved the 27″ inseam in slim straight jeans and skinnies for years, but now they look odd to me… especially with ballet flats.

They look marginally better with sneakers, since there’s a higher vamp and there’s not as much skin showing, but I’d still prefer another inch or two in the inseam

VERDICT: Going back! And the search continues . . .

PAIGE Gemma High Rise Slim Jeans in Black Lotus

at Nordstrom (29) // on sale at Bloomies (29) // Rails cardigan – on sale! (S) // Marc Fisher flats (8)

This PAIGE Gemma is two inches longer than the MOTHER Dazzler, and they have a slightly narrower leg opening and a much higher rise.

The measurements are 29″ inseam, 12″ leg opening, 11 1/2″ front rise; and they’re made of a stretchy 93% cotton, 5% polyester, 2% spandex.

The fabric feels slightly thicker and stiffer than the MOTHER pair, but they’re still comfortable and stretchy.

Here’s how they are described in the Nordstrom website:

Made from vintage-inspired stretch denim, these high-rise jeans flaunt full-length legs that are slightly wider around the ankles than typical skinnies.

When I hear that “skinnies are coming back”, this is what I’m picturing. Not the skin-tight legging ankle jeans of yore, but more of an elevated, traditional cut with more rigid denim.

And because no trend exists in a vacuum, this longer length works really well with ballet flats and other shoes with a low vamp that are trending again.

Although, they do get hung up on the back tab on this particular pair. It could be that I need to shorten them just a smidge. I’m only 5’5″ and I think they’re intended to be slightly shorter, right at or slightly below the ankle bone. I like how they fit the model on the Nordstrom website, for example.

I don’t care for them at all with my P448 John sneakers, which are rather chunky, but they might work with the lower profile J.Crew Field Sneakers. I wish I’d tried that. I also didn’t try them with boots of any kind.

VERDICT: I’m still deciding on these, but they are on sale right now at Bloomingdale’s, so if you like them, I’d go ahead and grab them!

PAIGE Laurel Canyon Welt High Rise Flare Jeans in Slater

at Nordstrom // on sale at Bloomies // Rails cardigan – on sale! (S) // Paul Green boots

Okay, these jeans are kind of fun! Unfortunately, they are suuuuper long, and I’ll need to shorten them if I keep them.

The measurements are 35″ inseam, 20″ leg opening, 11 1/4″ front rise; and they’re made of a soft and stretchy 91% cotton, 5% elastomultiester, 4% elastane.

Here’s the description from Nordstrom:

Vintage inspired yet very of the moment, these floor-grazing flare jeans are made from super stretchy denim and elevated with trouser-style welt pockets.

I tried to turn the hems under so I could see how they will look on me if I have them shortened…

These have a very slim, bootcut silhouette, which I think is really flattering, and I like the seams down the front and trouser-style welt pockets.

VERDICT: These are definitely a contender. I still want to figure out if I’m keeping the PAIGE Leenah that I featured last week (I haven’t received the other size yet), but it could be that I want both in my closet. Just like with the Leenah, I’ll need to decide between the 28 and 29 in this pair.

AGOLDE Riley High Rise Slim Jeans in Cove

at Bloomies (28) // Rails cardigan – on sale! (S) // Marc Fisher flats (8)

I used to love my AGOLDE Toni straight ankle jeans in the Dime wash, but they got too small, so I passed them on.

The Riley is a similar leg style and denim wash, but with a higher rise. The measurements are 11.25″ rise, 28″ inseam, 14″ leg opening.

The fabrication (99% cotton/1% elastane) is also a little more of a traditional, rigid denim, with just enough stretch to appeal to our modern sensibilities. I’m not a fan of 100% cotton jeans; I don’t like how they feel, and I don’t want to work to break them in… especially when I’m paying upwards of three figures for them!

I really like how these jeans pair with ballet flats – the way they come down over the ankle, but they aren’t exactly a full-length style either.

28″ might be my perfect inseam length, which makes me think I’d like the PAIGE Gemma better if I shorten them by an inch.

I took this picture so you can really see the rise. It’s pretty high, and these are the size 28, so they’re snug on me. (I’m not sure why I ordered the 28 and not the 29.)

I guess I need to wear them around the house for a couple hours and see if they loosen up enough to keep them. I feel like the size 29 might not look as good through the leg, but this is always my conundrum these days. If my jeans are comfortable in the waist, they’re too loose in the leg, and vica versa.

I also really like these jeans with my J.Crew field sneakers. The light wash is low contrast against the white sneaker, and I like the low profile style with these jeans.

With a 28″ inseam, the hem of the jeans just rests on top of the shoe without really buckling, but without showing any ankle either.

I’m not as crazy about them with the P448 John, but I guess they work. I think it’s less about the combination and more about the fact that I’m leaning into the lower profile sneakers right now.

I also tried them with my Sorel Hi-Line Chelsea Boots from last year, which happily, are still available!

This totally works, so I know I can also wear these jeans with other winter boots, as long as they have a narrower shaft that slides under the pant leg.

VERDICT: I like these a lot, but I need to wear them around for a while and see if they loosen up. If not, I’ll order the 29 to compare.

As much as I like the more rigid denim and the finished hem on the AGOLDE Riley, I still find myself going back to my MOTHER Dazzlers with the raw hem when I want a casual pair of blue jeans.

Steve Madden Chelsea Boots // J.Crew Field Sneakers // similar loafer mules

They just seem to work so well with all of my sneakers, and even with casual booties when I want them to. I feel like I could use both options in my closet.

Even though these read more as a skinny than a straight, I feel like they still look relevant, at least here in my neck of the woods.

Okay, moving on to jackets!

Lucky Brand Plaid Crop Jacket

at Nordstrom (S) // Jenni Kayne sweater (S) (budget option) // similar FRAME denim (29) // similar Aquatalia boots (also here)

You saw this jacket in yesterday’s post with Nordstrom, so you already know I love it! It sort of has the shacket vibe, but in a cropped version. The grey ribbed tee I wore in yesterday’s post is cute with it, but I also like it a lot with this ivory sweater, for a little more of an elevated look.

I tried it both tucked and untucked, and you can see the comparison here.

Neither is “wrong” but I definitely like how it looks when it’s front-tucked under the jacket. I feel like the overall proportions look better, and it seems to give a little more definition to my waist. I don’t mind it without a belt, but I think I’ll like it with a belt too.

Here’s the same outfit with my P448 sneakers. These jeans are a little short for this time of year, so I’ll probably wear my MOTHER Dazzlers instead, when I want to wear sneakers with this outfit. They’re just an inch longer, which makes all the difference.

VERDICT: Definitely keeping the jacket!

Sorel Joan Now Waterproof Chelsea Boot

at Nordstrom (8) // Lucky Brand jacket (S) // Jenni Kayne sweater (S) (budget option) // similar FRAME denim (29)

I also threw on these boots with this outfit, to test them out. I wish I’d tried them with more jeans because these obviously are too short. They get caught on the tab in the back of the boots, and that drives me nuts.

As far as the boots are concerned, there’s something about the cap toe that bugs me, so I’m not sure I’ll be keeping them, but they fit great and are warm and weather-proof.

VERDICT: Deciding… I need to play around with them some more.

P448 Monza Sneaker

at Nordstrom (39) // at Bloomies (39) // MOTHER Dazzler (29) // Rails cardigan – on sale! (S)

While we’re talking about shoes, I’ll slip these in here. These are a new style of P448 and I didn’t even bother to tie them for these pictures because I was in a rush, but I really like them.

They resemble the J.Crew Field Sneakers, but I feel like they quality is better, and I really like the details. Of course, the price tag reflects all of that!

Here’s a side-by-side comparison. The J.Crew pair is a warmer shade of white overall (although that’s hard to see in this picture) with silver details; whereas the P448 Monza is a cleaner, cooler shade of white with gold accents.

I really like how the P448 looks with my favorite MOTHER Dazzlers, but I didn’t have time to try other combinations.

VERDICT: Deciding… I want to try them with some other outfits before I make a decision. They’re pricey, so I want to be sure I’ll get a decent cost per wear out of them.

Back to jackets…

Evereve Bank St. Plaid Blazer

at Evereve (S) // Fidelity Cher (29) // Gap Factory tank (S) // similar loafers

If you’ve been hanging around here for any length of time, you know I rarely wear blazers (and by rarely, I mean never.) But they’re such a big fashion trend right now, I decided I should practice what I preach, and I ordered a few to try.

Trying new things is the best way to make sure you don’t get stuck in a style rut, and I wanted to try a few more modern silhouettes to see if I might have a change of heart. Aaaaaand, NOPE! I still hate them.

I feel so constricted, even when they have stretch, and they look so big and bulky through the shoulders and arms. Ugh!!!

I styled it over a black tank and my favorite jeans, to try to give it the best possible chance of success, but I am still not a fan.

This one, at least, is rather thin and has a good bit of stretch, but the print and overall styling feels so masculine to me.

VERDICT: I couldn’t return this fast enough.

Evereve Bowden Blazer

at Evereve (S) // Caslon long sleeve tee (S) // AG Mari – on sale!(30) // Marc Fisher flats (8)

And this one is even worse. The fabric is thicker and stiffer and bulkier, and the fit is really off. I know someone is going to say I could size down, but I wouldn’t be able to move my arms if I was in the XS.

Here’s how it looks buttoned… just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse, haha!

Even though I don’t like this blazer for me, I can appreciate that someone else might, so I also tried it with my MOTHER Weekender flares (on sale!) and Dolce Vita Volli western boots.

I like this color combo a lot, but the jacket is still a big fat no for me, dawg.

VERDICT: Adios. Sayonara. Buh-bye.

By way of disclaimer, I think blazers can be super cute and stylish on other women, and I’m not saying these aren’t great options. They just don’t work for me.

Treasure & Bond Oversize Plaid Recycled Polyester & Wool Blend Jacket

at Nordstrom (S) // Caslon long sleeve tee (S) // MOTHER Weekender – on sale! (29) // Dolce Vita Volli (8)

Okay, let’s end on a high note, shall we!?! I shared this jacket in yesterday’s post, but here’s another styling option. I love it over this rust-colored long sleeve tee.

I probably should have added a belt, but I was hurrying, and it looks okay without. I just prefer a belt when the waistline of the jeans show.

The aviator styling on this wool/poly jacket is such a fun combination, in my opinion. This is my version of a blazer. The plaid print is subtle, but it adds interest, although this jacket does come in solid olive and black, if you prefer.

VERDICT: Keeping! I might wear it today, in fact, if I can ever get myself off this computer and on with my day. I actually have an appointment to get to, so this is where I’m going to stop this post.

I have a lot of sweaters I still want to show you, and another jacket that came in while I was working on this, so I’ll try to get Part II up before the end of the weekend. Have a fabulous Friday!

  1. Blazer question – have you ever tried a Veronica Beard blazer? The Scuba Dickey jacket in particular? I just wonder what you thought of that one on your frame. I think you would look AMAZING in that jacket, but if it’s not for you, no problem. just asking 🙂

    1. I’ve seen those blazers and really like them! I guess it’s hard for me to get past the price:) I suppose if I wore it a lot I could justify the cost. I am speech therapist working with preschoolers so sadly probably a no go

  2. I like the first blazer ok, but I think maybe what’s off is the narrowing jean with it. I like all one color blazer with crop straight or with alittle kick flare to the jean to balance out the blazer. I love my black and white one I own, but both the fabric is for Spring/Summer. I think the print ones here feel more matronly to me. Thanks for trying them. Don’t worry about posting part 2 today. Just enjoy your weekend and do another day. :).

    1. Interesting. It was the prints that drew me to these, lol! I really like the colors and pattern in the 2nd one but it’s so bulky. I agree, other jeans might look better. I like the more casual blue denim flares with it.

      1. I was thinking the prints and color combos made both of these feel masculine. Jolynne, do you think you’d prefer them in a more feminine color? Red perhaps or ivory? Also I’m curious if you’ve tried the Gibson notch collar blazer. I haven’t tried it but it seems a bit less stuffy.

        1. I have tried it, and I do think the more feminine silhouette is easier for me to wear, but that’s not the look I was going for. I wanted something a little more casual and current. I like the more oversized, relaxed look that’s trending; it just doesn’t work for me… or it doesn’t feel like me. The only blazers I’ve ever really liked on me are collarless styles, but again, not really what I was looking for. 🙂

          1. I hear ya. I don’t love the current style on myself either. I think it’s because it makes me feel broad shouldered.

  3. I actually really liked the Agolde Riley jeans on you! I have a similar pair from Madewell that is 99% cotton and 1% elastane, and I found that they definitely stretched out a bit, particularly in the waist, so I would definitely give the smaller size a good wear before you consider sizing up. Also, I know it doesn’t matter if you don’t feel comfortable in them, but I think the first blazer paired with the black jeans looked great on you as well!

  4. Well thank you for ruling out a couple Evereve blazers for me… I wasn’t sure because they looked a bit shapeless online, and…no. I love a good blazer and have several for warm weather that I can wear to a meeting and straight to the airport to fly home and feel comfortable the whole time. Been looking for a fall/winter staple and its been tough! Love the treasure & bond jacket.

  5. I’m guessing the link to the white turtleneck sweater is coming in ✨Part 2✨ and I can’t wait. It’s so ‘winter wonderland’! Thank you so much for these labor itensive tryon hauls. You save us all hours and hours💙

  6. I actually do really like that first blazer on you, lol. The whole outfit in fact. That’s totally something I would put on and wear to work. But I hear you that they’re not your style. Thanks for all the denim try-ons. It’s helpful to see what works and doesn’t. I’m just a tiny bit shorter than you and I think for me 28” is the perfect length for wearing with sneakers, flat Chelsea boots, and the like, which means that’s the length I need to focus on right now. I have longer ones for higher heeled boots but I don’t wear heels every day.

        1. Thanks, I definitely think that one looks better than the other, now that I look back at the pictures. But I can’t get past how it feels masculine, which is probably partly the print. I would try more, if I see some that I like. You never know!

  7. “ but this is always my conundrum these days. If my jeans are comfortable in the waist, they’re too loose in the leg, and vica versa.” YES! Me, too. You’re not alone in this, and I’m having a terrible time finding jeans right now because of it. Ugh!

    1. They make a waistband extender that has a metal button with a loop that gives about an extra inch. You can find them with sewing accessories or on Amazon.

  8. J’habite dans le sud de la France . Personnellement je vous aime mieux en blazer ,qui allonge votre silhouette plutôt qu’en blouson ,qui vous coupe en deux et vous alourdit .
    Bizarre ,comme chacun peut avoir une vision différente voire opposée ,des mêmes choses.

    1. I appreciate different perspectives, and it really is funny how we are drawn to different things. I actually like how the blazer lengthens the silhouette, but I don’t like how bulky it is in the arms and shoulders, especially the 2nd one. I think it’s because I have boxy shoulders and a short neck, and also, I just find them so uncomfortable.

  9. I get it if blazers aren’t your thing. That’s how I feel about skinny jeans/pants and leggings. I like blazers right now. I don’t like boxy ones. I like seams in front and back that create a more feminine silhouette. What you wear with them can be tricky.

  10. Hey – I want to weigh in on a few things in your try-on haul here. First, you are definitely a “winter”….that white speckled turtleneck sweater looks so good on you- love it! I’m surprised you can wear camel sweaters so well (beautifully) considering you look so good in cool colors. Next, I think the back pockets on the Paige jeans are more flattering than the pocket placement on the Mother jeans that hang lower and that flattens the tush. I love that pair of Paige that is so long! The 35” inseam is perfect for me, but I’m not a fan of dark wash jeans on me…. I never feel like I have the right tops or shoes for dark wash – can’t figure out the styling. I really like the first Evereve St Plaid blazer on you; it looks stylish and cute. But I understand that if it doesn’t feel comfortable then that’s a deal breaker. I’m curious if you have ever tried JCrew blazers? I think they make the best and have a variety of styles and fabrics to choose from. For a non-blazer person like yourself, I’d think you’d be happier in a plain neutral color like a simple black blazer over a t-shirt and jeans. I haven’t been excited by Evereve’s selection this fall at all. It feels like a mish-mosh of recyled styles combined with a few trendy things that the 20-30 somethings are wearing. I’m Christmas shopping with a friend tomorrow and might stop in my nearby store to see if their in-store selection is any better. Thank you for putting yourself “out there” to show your readers all your hits and misses!

    1. I agree about JCrew blazers. I buy the cheaper ones at JCrew factory. They’re well made. I have 5 total. Two are sweater blazers. Cyndi had a post last fall wearing the camel sweater blazer.

    2. Yes, I’m totally a winter, and also, I don’t know why I can wear camel, lol. I know it’s not best on me, but I like it anyway. I do also agree about the PAIGE pockets. They’ve always had good pockets for me. They’re smaller than most.

      I wonder if you don’t like dark wash jeans because you’re blond. My dark hair “bookends” the look, so to speak, and I love dark denim. 🙂

      I do have the J.Crew Going Out Blazer – it is the only blazer I have ever liked, and I keep it even though the style isn’t as current right now. I feel like it’s one of those rare pieces that is truly a classic, so I hold onto it.

      I feel like the collarless style is key for me, so I think I’m going to try the Juliette sweater blazer (I have always wanted to try it, but I don’t think I ever have… not sure why.)

      And this Cecile relaxed sweater blazer might work better for me than the styles I tried from Evereve. The collar is more minimal, and a knit is going to be more comfortable to me.

      1. If you don’t like them, try the JCrew factory schoolboy sweater blazer. I have one in ivory and camel. The camel one is in petite small but fits a little big giving the look of an oversized blazer. I can easily wear a sweater underneath. It’s structured with seams. I can move easily in it. I’m waiting for it to be marked down more to get a black one.

  11. Just grabbed that Treasure & Bond bomber–I’m so excited to see all the wonderful brown-toned clothing this season! I was thinking that maybe it is the ballet flats that are causing the trouble with the jeans–square-toed ballet flats or maybe not so literal (with the bow) would look more current with the jeans you are trying–or maybe like a mary jane ballet type flat? Because the sneaks and the boots do indeed look more current…

  12. Love the Lucky Brand Plaid Crop Jacket/your whole outfit! I always appreciate the hard work that you put into your blog. I always learn a lot and you always provide a lot of great information! I am with you on the jeans-I have to make sure they are comfortable in the waist, etc. I do a lot of driving and dislike the feeling of tight jeans when sitting. I also wish I could wear a blazer but they look too formal to my eye. Same with the lady jacket. I like the look of them on other women but don’t feel comfortable in them.

  13. Hi Jolynne,
    I have searched high and low for black denim and found one that is amazing from Anthropologie. It’s by the brand Pilcro, and it is their Yaya midrise crop flare. It has a lot of stretch to it. I typically wear 28 and sized down to a 26 and they are perfect! I am built very similarly to you, so I thought you might be interested!

  14. I’m not sure I know anything about anything, but I really like blazers for me. Not every one works, though. You and I are roughly the same size so I’m sharing what I’ve discovered. I definitely need a more tailored blazer – one that narrows at the waist a bit – not form fitting, but shaped- works best. Those big boxy blazers overwhelm me. Just food for thought! Thanks for sharing your finds today!

    1. Hi Beth, yes, I definitely look better in more fitted styles… of anything. Whether it be a dress or a blazer. I was looking for that more current, boxy look, but maybe there’s something that straddles the line. I will keep an eye out. I think it’s really the collar that bugs me most. It’s my short neck and boxy shoulders, I really need one that is more minimal in the collar, or collarless styles sometimes work.

      1. I hear what you’re saying and I have one more thought.. What if you changed up the neckline of the shirt you’re wearing under the blazer? Maybe a collared button down or a deep v-neck? Would that create a more elongated neck?

        1. The only thing I hate more than blazers are button down shirts, lol!!! It’s totally a comfort thing, the collar irritates me and my hair gets caught in it, and the structure makes me feel constricted. I know, I am a pain. I agree the blouse under blazer is a nice look, but I was wanting something more casual. Maybe a v-neck.

  15. Don’t give up on blazers yet! I also have a short neck, broad shoulders and a rectangular body shape. I love blazers in general, although more tailored looks that create a waist look best on me, and actually create some shape. Nonetheless, I wanted to take part in the oversize blazer trend. One trick I have picked up to pulling this off with my body type is to “show a little skin.” Wear your blazer with a v-neck to elongate your neck, and push up the sleeves to show off your slender wrists. Wear pants that are slim through the hips and thighs and either straight or straight flare with pointed toe boots to elongate the leg. With a shorter inseam, boots with a shaft that hug the ankle emphasize the most slender part of your leg. I can have a tendency to look overly masculine if I just wear a boxier blazer “as is.” These tweaks make the oversizing of the blazer look intentional and show that there is a normal sized person in there, rather than making me look like I just stepped off of the offensive line!

  16. I love the shorter jackets! I bought a nice plain black blazer last year from H&M . It’s very classic and nice with jeans, over knit dresses, and faux leather pants! I’ve worn it a whole lot more than I thought I ever would!
    Maybe try there!

  17. I used to feel that I should like blazers. They’re considered classic and appear on lists of what every stylish woman should own. But I’ve never liked them or worn them, even during the years when I had a corporate job. As you put it, “It doesn’t feel like me.” And that’s reason enough to avoid any style.
    Fortunately, you feature many different options for jackets on your blog. I appreciate that.
    The Lucky jacket is so cute! That’s a jacket I can love.

  18. Love your try-on hauls and appreciate the effort and time you put into them and your explanations.

    Agree that I would love to see you try a Veronica Beard Scuba blazer with some of the casual dickies like the grey hoody and denim shirt.
    I also think the VB blazers with gold buttons are pretty but are more dressy.

    I have the shorter J Crew sweater blazer in grey and navy. Would love to see you feature and style some of them.

    I might try the Agolde jeans because I have been on the hunt for a straight pair in a light or mid wash.

    Your post made me laugh several times maybe because I have the same thoughts on blazers.

    The blazers you showed today seem more suited for an office, IMO.

  19. I think the first blazer looks good.a third piece makes it an outfit instead of just jeans and a sweater. But you need to style your blazers. Roll or push up the sleeve to show skin at wrist which is a thinning look. Leave it open. Keep it casual over a graphic tee even. Or throw it over your shoulder. Don’t be scared to add a 3rd piece to make an outfit, just take the time to style it properly and you’ll get more confident about wearing it!

  20. There are other styles and construction of blazers that you might want to consider. I strongly prefer unlined blazers (Nic & Zoe, Madewell) and sweater blazers (J.Crew is the canonical one, but Talbots has some nice ones as well). Further, oversized appears to be in and avoids them from feeling too tight in the arms and shoulders.
