I wondered if the sweater blazer situation was going to be a passing fad, but I’m happy to report that I’m still in love with it. It’s one of those miracle wardrobe staples that works in countless ways. I keep figuring out new ways to style it. I even wore it for our Christmas card photo over a plaid shirt! When you choose to immortalize it in a Christmas card, you know it’s good.
The sweater blazer comes in a handful of colors. The camel was definitely the right choice for me and I find it to be the most versatile for the types of clothes I wear. But I do love the navy and black too as great basics.
My only real “issue” with it is that I have noticed a bit of pilling on the body of the sweater. Basically where my sleeve rubs against my torso. I use an electric fabric defuzzer though on the pilly spots every five or so wears and it looks good as new again.
I also like that the sleeves aren’t quite full length, as it lets whatever shirt you’re layering pop out a bit.
