Is it too early to bust out the linen?
Dress codes are in flux right now — my professional Before Times wardrobe just doesn’t seem right anymore. My formula for dressing now is to combine a traditional silhouette with relaxed elements.
This blazer from Madewell is a great example — the cut is looser than a traditional jacket and sports drop sleeves, but it still has a traditional lapel and two-button closure. The airy blend of cotton and linen will take you well into the late spring and beyond (and it’s machine washable for when things get toasty).
Dress it up with black slacks and polished loafers; dress it down with jeans and a white tee.
At a lower price point is this cotton-linen blazer from Donna Karan New York that’s on sale for $79.99 (lucky sizes only); this linen-blend blazer from Uniqlo is $59.90 and available in XXS–XXL. Talbots has several linen blazers on sale in various colors and size ranges.
