This Bailey 44 jacket came to my attention when readers were talking about a soft knit blazer — AKA a jardigan or sweater blazer — as a good option for situations when a blazer feels a little too stuffy but a sweater feels a little underdressed. This one looks great — I like that the patch pockets are actually functional, and I also like that it only has a single button. I feel that the ruched sleeves can help you avoid a potential trip to the tailor, so I like them as well. (Note that the jacket is dry clean but not dry clean only.) Bailey 44 is usually associated with weekend stuff, but that means they probably know their knits pretty well. This jacket is available in the pictured gray as well as black for $278 at Nordstrom and is also at Amazon, where more sizes are in stock and it’s eligible for Prime and Prime Wardrobe. Jane Jacket
More affordable options are at Nordstrom: one from Gibson, on sale for $58, and another from 1901 that is $119. Two plus-size alternatives are this $69 Caslon jacket and this one from Lafayette 148 New York that is $548.
