Most days, I am proud to be a broad-shouldered lass. They make me feel elegant and strong, no artificial padding required. But add a blazer or fitted jacket to the mix and simple tasks such as hugging a friend without busting a seam, or maintaining adequate blood flow to the arms while driving, are thwarted. Well, NO LONGER. I found a work-appropriate jacket that fits me like a glove and is made of super-soft, gloriously stretchy sweatshirt material. SWEATSHIRT MATERIAL! In salt-and-pepper tweed!
It will get ample use while the mornings and evenings on the water remain so brisk, and passes my napability test (that is, if I can’t nap in it I probably won’t want to wear it) with flying colors. It was a one-off find at a Barney’s outlet, but here are some similar styles:
J.crew bouclé jacket in indigo colorblock or black and ivory colorblock, LOFT cotton terry asymmetrical zip jacket, Drew lurex bouclé jacket, Helmut Lang motor terry jacket, Pencey Standard warrior blazer
