Petite Rhodes Blazer Jcrew

Summer sales are perfect opportunity to find blazers at a nice price range. This navy Rhodes blazer from Jcrew is absolutely perfect. The material is wool, but it’s light enough for early fall or chilly summer days. I loved the look, pockets, buttons (could be better) but not a deal braker.  The material is almost like a tweed feel, but it feels and looks nice. The style of this blazer is a longer look and perfect for casual wear with skinny jeans! I can’t wait to wear it. I love it. And, for the sale price you can’t go wrong. I will get a lot of wear out of this blazer and I will be purchasing more jcrew styles in the future. As far as sizing….i got the p00, p0, p2. I ended up keeping the petite 0. I usually wear regular xxs and 00 in tops and skirts. However, the petite 00 was snug on me. The p0 was perfect fit! Sleeves  fit perfectly, body length perfectly, and waist and bust perfectly with room to layer a sweater under. If you wear A cup bra the p00 may be ok. For B and C cups the p0 or p2 is a better fit.

I also tried the schoolboy blazer at jcrew factory and the p2 was a perfect fit to layer a sweater under and shorter body length. For the Regent (similar length as the rhodes) and the 00 regular was a good fit with no room to layer a sweater and it has a straight look rather than trim like the Rhodes and schoolboy. I ended up choosing the Rhodes for now. I linked all three for you. If you have questions don’t hesitate to ask. I know that finding the perfect fit could be tricky in blazers. And the sale price is too good to pass.
