Insomniac Sale Picks: Lightweight Navy Blazers

*In this late-night feature – which will run Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Kim requested a few picks for lightweight navy blue blazers, so here we go:

Tropical Wool Sophia Jacket – was $198, now $119.99
PLUS an additional 30% off with code MAY30 

I understand now why Kim put in this request. The options for lightweight navy blazers are extremely slim. This version just barely qualifies due to being a seasonless wool in a cropped silhouette. Available in sizes 00 – 18, as well as petite and tall.

Calvin Klein Denim Blazer – was $99.50, now $89.99

I know, but wait. This is a SUPER dark wash denim with no whiskering or detailing, regular blazer buttons, and a traditional blazer cut. It won’t fly with those of you who prefer more traditional blazers, but it’s a good navy option for more casual dressers. And being unlined and made from a relatively lightweight, cotton denim, it should work for summer wear. Available in sizes XS – XL.

Jones New York Knit Jacket – was $79, now $44.79

Since this is a knit, it reads as relatively casual but the eye-catching cut and clean lines will make it a decent choice for all but the most conservative of office environments. Three-quarter sleeves and lack of lining make this a breathable, warm weather-friendly option. Available in size S – XL. (Also comes in gray heather)

212 Collection Solid Blazer – was $48, now $33.60

None of tonight’s picks are perfect or exactly what Kim wants, so I’m throwing a fourth into the pot in hopes of distracting you with quantity of options. (Lightweight navy blazers = RARE.) I’m not a huge fan of short-sleeved blazers for myself since they draw lots of attention to the upper arms and are useless in winter, but they are well ventilated! Which is a decent stand-in for lightweight! Available in sizes 4 – 18.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for lightweight navy blazers:

  1. Nordstrom – If for no other reason than they sell Eileen Fisher, who does light, unlined blazers nearly every spring/summer. But this partially lined option is mighty cute, too, and has several not-on-sale friends on the Nordstrom site.
  2. Urban Outfitters – I think of navy as a preppy staple, so I was surprised to find this drapey navy blazer and this fitted navy blazer, both at reasonable prices.
  3. Mango – But actually just this blazer here which I think is exactly what Kim is looking for.
  4. And, of course, THRIFT STORES! OK, I’ll admit that if you’re looking for a very specific blazer – like a lightweight navy one, say – attempting to thrift it might make your head cave in. But a good 70% of my blazer collection is thrifted, so blazers as a broad category? Thriftable. (thethriftshopper.com can help you locate stores near you.)

    I am a fan of the short or cropped sleeved blazers — I’m a size 16 Tall and find that the long sleeves of most blazers look too mannish on me. In the winter I wear long sleeve t-shirts or silky button ups under the short sleeve blazers and the layering works well.

    I just bought a white cotton blazer from Mango and was completely surprised by the quality of the construction… and the price!

    I would love to see some knit harem pants in plus-sizes. Are they even ‘in’ any more?

      I hope so. I wore my pair last week! 😉
