Sure, we all drool over the $600+ blazers — but I realized the other day that there are so many great blazers under $50 right now that I could devote an entire post to it. So: whether you’re building your wardrobe for a summer internship, preparing to be a summer associate, or just looking to add a casual, affordable, lightweight blazer to your wardrobe — this is the post for you.
An important caveat at the start: know your office! If you’re in a very conservative office, these styles may be too casual for a lot of work days. But: if you want to elevate a business casual look, keep something in the office in case you get cold, or even look professional if you have to run into the office on the weekend — you’ll reach for these comfortable, knit blazers.

|This blazer has been around for YEARS and everyone sings its praises. It’s available in black and gray at the moment (but readers were singing the praises recently of a white version of the same blazer), sizes XS-XXL, for $29.99. You may want to consider removing the shoulder pads. Tailored Ponte Blazer – Merona|
|This Uniqlo blazer is cut a bit more loose, but you can size down if you want a tighter fit. It’s only got a few reviews on site, but they’re all 5 stars, including this reviewer, who raved: “It looks like you’re wearing a professional suit Jacket but it feels like you’re wearing your most comfortable sweatshirt!” It’s available in off-white, gray, black, and navy, sizes XS-XL. The blazer is normally$39.99, but is on sale today for $29.99. UV CUT JERSEY JACKET|
|We’re big fans of H&M’s Conscious line in Casa Griffin, but the last time I was in a physical store I wandered over to the regular jersey blazers and they seemed great — a nice thick ponte, cute colors, and a trendy cut. I love this “powder melange” color, but note that it also comes in black — and if you’ve been struggling with getting blazers to look right with dresses, the ruched sleeves may be just what you needed. The blazer is $34.99, available in sizes 2-16. Jersey Jacket|
|This blazer is $79 full price, but often goes below $50 on sale — indeed, three colors are on sale currently for $47, including this lovely white spacedye pattern. This blazer has been around for a zillion years, comes in petite, regular, and plus sizes, and wins rave reviews (175 and counting!). If you’re willing to spend just a bit more than $50, this ruched-sleeve blazer or this shawl-collar blazer are both great options in the $75 range. Pictured: Olivia Moon Knit Blazer|
|Full disclosure: the fifth blazer I was going to link to is totally sold out, so I will merely note that Old Navy ponte blazers, in the past, have been great. I haven’t seen the pictured blazer, but it’s got 63 reviews and a 4.6 average (out of 5), with some reviewers noting “This is probably the best work blazer I’ve bought. I have it in shark & dark blue and plan to buy more. The material is incredibly comfortable & not stiff at all like most blazers – yet it’s lined on the inside under the armpits and chest wall, which helps prevent deodorant stains, etc. The material is breathable – another huge plus!” It’s available in three colors right now, sizes 0-14, at Kohl’s. It’s $64 full price, but is currently marked to $39.99 — but use code SPRINGSAVE to bring it down to $34. LC Lauren Conrad Ponte Blazer|
Readers, did I miss any great blazers under $50 — do you swear by any particular styles at stores like Express, Forever 21, ASOS, or others — or do you know of any other great blazers at spots like Loft, J.Crew Factory, or Talbots or elsewhere that regularly go below $50? Which is your favorite blazer under $50?
