The Thing I am Loving Today. Steve Alan Cropped Blazer.

October 29, 2009 • Shopping


As a petite woman, it's been a little more challenging trying navigate around the whole boyfriend blazer trend. The baggy shapes tend to appear bulky on my 5'1 frame, the bottom hem hitting too low, and the shoulders appearing too wide. And up until now there haven't been that many stellar choices in the way of cropped styles as well. But lo and behold—I may have found the perfectly versatile style in a petite-friendly blazer with Steve Alan's wool-blend cropped version. The dove gray color can easily be dressed up or down and the fabric is light enough to layer but thick enough to actually provide some warmth. I can throw it over lightweight dresses to anchor them for fall, or pair it with a cashmere shell and jeans for when the weather grows increasingly colder. And the best part is—though cropped for the average person—the hem on the jacket hits perfectly at the waist, providing a flattering silhouette for little ole me.
