The below content is about the 2018 Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale.
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
I’ve seen a lot of pink blazers in my time, and something about this one makes me feel like this one is it — I love the structure, the sliiiiightly puffed sleeves (they have NOTHING on the Smythe blazers out right now), the super slim arms. Even the cotton candy shade is perfect, although I particularly love it as styled here with a darker shade of pink (although: know your office; halter tops or things that look like them may not be appropriate even under blazers). The blazer is $1,595 at Nordstrom and Net-a-Porter. Crepe Blazer
Looking for a more affordable option? This lightweight pink stripe blazer is $159 and comes in regular, petite, plus, and plus-size petites. Smythe also makes a cotton candy blazer (sans puff sleeves) that is a mere $695.
