I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a festive blazer quite like this one. I love velvet blazers in general as a festive addition to a work outfit, but the ombre effect here is so fun and unique.

(And I say this as someone who would otherwise almost never wear orange near my face because it is so not my coloring!)

The blazer is a lot of fun and it’s on a decent sale — it was $698 at Elie Tahari, but is already marked 20% ($558) and then comes down ANOTHER 40% with code, to $335. (But: it is final sale.)

Hunting for festive blazers for 2023/24? Stay tuned for a bigger roundup, but on the affordable side we like J.Crew Factory and Loft — and this Eliza J one is almost always in stock. On the more expensive side, check Reiss, Paige, and L’Agence. (Love this green iridescent houndstooth from L’Agence, also!)
