White House Black Market is worth a look when you’re after a fairly fitted, neutral jacket with a smattering of interesting detailing. Generally, my clients who enjoy wearing V-necks and who like to define their waists do well with jackets by this brand. Some silhouettes are more fitted than others. Some of the blazers have a Veronica Beard vibe to them, but cost a fraction of the price. The quality is pretty good, and their fits accommodate a broader shoulder line. Sizes run from a US00 to US18.

The styles below have been winners on my clients, and have good reviews. Follow the links to see back, hem, side, sleeve detailing, and fabric specifications. Some jackets are on sale.
