Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Linen can be a controversial choice for officewear, but I do like a linen-blend blazer as a lightweight topper for the hot summer months.

A friend of mine spent the first few years of her legal career at a very formal firm where all lawyers were expected to be in business formal attire every day. Even if you stepped out for lunch, the unofficial rule was that if you were still close enough to see the building, you’d better still be wearing a blazer or suit jacket.

This is where the linen-blend blazer would have come in handy. Still formal, but light enough that you won’t get heatstroke when you run out to grab a sandwich.

This one from J.Crew comes in seven colors and a fantastic range of sizes. I like the ivory, but the “vintage red” would be a great punch of color. 

The blazer is $198 at J.Crew and comes in classic sizes 000–24, petite sizes 00–12, and tall sizes 2–20. 

Here are two more affordable options: This Open Edit blazer for $89.50 at Nordstrom (sizes XXS–XXL) and this Old Navy blazer (regular, tall, and petite up to 4X).
