Classic outfit formula + relaxed blazer finds

Whenever I’m stumped on what to wear, the combo of a good pair of jeans and a blazer never fails. With a cashmere sweater and slim shaft ankle booties for winter, or a simple tank with sandals for warm weather (as shown here). That last outfit is from 2 years ago, and I’d happily repeat the exact same look!

Uniqlo double-breasted blazer

I was grabbing another pair of my must-have fleeced leggings (also in womens) when I noticed this blazer and decided to give it a try. It turned out to be an unexpected win (Uniqlo blazers are hit or miss for me), with an effortlessly relaxed feel in a versatile shade of light khaki.

This jacket has that oversized boyfriend fit that I’m looking for, and since it is regular sizing, the sleeves are a little long on me. The fabric is a light/medium weight with a smooth finish and a partial half-lining. A little detail on this jacket that I love is how the buttons are small and subtle. It also has coordinating pants which I enjoy wearing on their own, but probably not as a matching suit.

Other relaxed blazers with petite sizing:

  • BR Factory – amazing value! See it on me. I’m shocked that this blazer is still stocked in most sizes and is now on clearance for $29 down from $180 (extra 50% off is applied in cart). The jacket is fully lined with a slightly brushed flannel fabric that might not feel right for summertime, but it’s lightweight enough for Fall through Spring in my opinion.
  • J.Crew relaxed fit – 2 colors, in a high quality 4-season fluid fabric and full lining. I have navy and am eyeing the cream on this.

Levi’s Wedgie Straight Jeans (restocked)

The most petite-friendly, universally flattering Levi’s in my humble opinion. These jeans were a runaway favorite when I reviewed them last year, and this exact “space to think” wash was finally restocked in the shorter 26″ inseam! I also have the darker “unstoppable wear” wash which has less stretch.

To add a little interest, I’d style this with a pop of color:

    Me again…. I have a BIG Google Next conference (Mandalay Bay) 23 day work conference. Tech is known for being casual and laid back, as a shot 5″2 person, is there any “comfortable” tech conference wear that would also be professional and give me a little height? Thank you so much! It’s coming up fast and I am having trouble knowing what to wear (Heels all day would probably be a slow hell.)

      Hi Jess! I do agree tech conferences are very casual and heels may feel out of place in addition to being uncomfortable for all day wear. I wouldn’t worry about adding height as much as your personal comfort! At most I’d do a low block heel, but only one that you’ve tested out in advance for comfort. Or a loafer like the Sam Edelman Lorraine, maybe a leather sneaker (if you have one that has a platform, that could be the height boost) with jeans and a casual stripe button down half tucked or a relaxed fit blazer.
