We talk a lot about lower-cost ponte blazers (see below for examples), but I think this one is a great example of what we’re seeing more of lately: high-end jersey knits. They’re comfortable and durable, and there’s a noticeable difference between a high-quality jersey and a lower-quality jersey. This blazer also has little details like the darts, the tailoring, and the way the edges are finished. I love this shade of gray, too. If you like the comfort of ponte but want something that looks a little higher-end and is probably going to last a little longer, consider this blazer. Italian Jersey One-Button Blazer
There’s a huge range of more affordable options — some of the most affordable ones are the Tailored Ponte Blazer at Target for $29.99 (plus-size option here), the Uniqlo Ponte Tailor Jacket (alas, currently sold out), and the Old Navy One-Button Blazer for $22 on sale (plus-size option here).
