Thursday’s Workwear Report: Linen-Blend Blazer

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

This purpley-blue blazer from Torrid is such a gorgeous color that I’m willing to overlook the fact that it’s styled with matching shorts. (Can someone please tell me who is wearing short suits? Is there actually a market for this?) This blazer would look gorgeous with just about any neutral, but I would love to see it styled with an all-white outfit for a beautiful spring/summer look.

As an aside, I always think of Torrid as a Hot Topic-adjacent shop for graphic tees and the like, but they actually have a great selection of workwear basics for sizes 10 to 30. I’m super into this midi dress and this plaid blazer.

The pictured blazer is $85.50 and comes in sizes M–6X (equivalent to 10–30).

This shade of blue is tough to find a dupe for, but if you’re looking for something in straight sizes, this blazer from Endless Rose ($120 at Nordstrom) has a somewhat similar, pretty shade of blue (plus three other colorways).
