Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Double-Breasted Blazer – Life Style

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

This bold red blazer from Maeve caught my eye as I was searching for some colorful options to brighten up my winter. I love this shade, which is a tiny bit more muted than some of the fire-engine-rred colors that you come across this time of year.

For work, I would probably lean into the preppy-ness of the double-breasted look and pair it with a navy-and-white striped shirt, similar to what Anthropologie has done here, or, if I were feeling bold, layer it over with a white top and some hot pink pants.

The blazer is $170 and comes in plus sizes 16W–26W, standard sizes 00–16, and petite sizes 00P–16P. It also comes in a rainbow of nine other colors, but many are sadly only available in standard sizes.
