Knitted blazers are extra comfortable because of their soft and stretchy integrity, but they can also stretch out and look sloppy. The Ponte Academy Blazer from the Gap feels and looks better than most knitted blazers because it’s very structured AND fully lined. At the price, I was blown away with the quality of this topper.
It comes in a variety of colours with contrast piping, more than what’s online, so check out brick and mortar stores too. It’s available up to size 20, in petite, regular and tall. I found it to run large, so you might need to size down.
It’s a shrunken blazer to start off with, so regular sizes tend to fit petites. The sleeves are very long though, and shortening them is not an easy alteration because of the lining and binding. But you can roll them up “boyfriend style”, scrunch them, or both, which is what all the models are doing below.
Thanks to Diana on the YLF forum for alerting us to this fab find.
