This blazer coat from Madewell is one of my favorite jackets. Why you ask? Because I feel tall and slim in it, which is no easy feat (especially after a long weekend filled with lots of food and wine). Maybe that’s why Suze Orman favors these blazer coats when giving her presentations, you look like a boss. Joking aside, I feel really good wearing this. I actually fell in love with a J.Crew tux blazer coat I saw in a Christmas TV commercial a year or two ago, but this version is much better because it can go dressy or casual.

It’s true to size for me, although the sleeves are fitted so I can’t wear a bulky layer underneath. There’s a bit of stretch in the twill fabric, which feels nice and comfortable. I think this will be a great topper for a cocktail dress in the evenings. Just throw on a silky metallic scarf and grab a clutch, your outfit is done in 3 clicks.

What do you think of blazer coats?

    Fantastic! You are a boss in that jacket. No doubt about it. I also see your cute plaid pants and cool necklace. Luv it all.
