    Workchic Business Casual Find of the Week: Short-Sleeved Blazers

    I can’t fathom wearing a long sleeve blazer in the weather we are experiencing in New York City.  So I began my search  for some short sleeve blazers that would give me that professional edge of a suit jacket yet still keep me cool in the home stretch of these hot summer days.  I also plan on getting use out of them in the cooler months by layering a cotton or jersey top underneath!  I decided to go to my favorite sale destination in July- The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

    This Tweed Short Sleeve Blazer on the left is from Classiques Entier at Nordstrom.  It can be dressed down when worn with denim and a T-shirt underneath.  A ruffled collar and hem add some unexpected femininity to this Alberto Makali khaki jacket giving it the versatility one needs in their work wardrobe.  Not only do I love this Nanette Lepore Jacket being worn as part of a suit but I could see myself also pairing it with a black a-line skirt or charcoal grey wide leg trousers.  I also can’t resist the deep berry color!   Another fave of mine is also by Nanette Lepore.  Instead of a button closure there is a toggle closure which gives this short sleeve jacket just enough edge yet still remains professional for the office.   I love this jacket when it is paired with the matching pants but I would definitely wear it with my black pencil skirt or over my black sheath dress for that perfect business casual look!

    These blazers show that you can still be stylish and chic in this heat! Stay tuned every Monday for our Business Casual find of the week!

    1. I think the tweed blazer on the left would look great with one of the blouses you highlighted on Thursday for fall…

    2. Very cute! When it gets a little colder, maybe you can slip a long sleeve t-shirt or thing sweater underneath? I’m all about the tweed
