Plus Size Navy Blazer Outfit

I know, I know, you’re thinking: here she goes again with another blazer and jeans outfit.  Yes, I do have a lot similar looks already on the blog.  But, this is a good reminder that a blazer does a lot to elevate your basic “jeans and a tee outfits,” even with sneakers or flats.  This is just one of the many reasons it’s important to have a “go to” blazer that fits well and works (temperature-wise) the majority of the year.  Even better if you have more than one color!  Start with neutrals like navy and black.  And eventually, you’ll be rocking red, yellow, and pink blazers and wondering how you ever lived without them!

Plus Size Basic Blazer Outfits

Below are some older posts, featuring blazers and jeans, that I thought might offer some more inspiration!

Shopping for Plus Size Blazers

I’m not going to lie to you, dear readers.  Finding a blazer that is flattering and fits correctly is more than likely going to be a pain in the ass, especially if you don’t know what you’re looking for.  But, if you don’t have that “go to” blazer, I swear it is totally worth the effort!

Start out with reading about my recommendations for apple and pear shapes to help you figure out what shape and style you’re looking for.  Also, you’re going to want to purchase one that has some stretch, which can help with the fit.   Ponte knit is a great option if you are willing to forgo a little structure for an easier fit.  And know that you may have to try on several (or many) styles to get it just right.  Be like Goldilocks.  If you’re petite, you’ll have to shop for plus size petite options, like this petite plus size blazer from Talbot’s or this one from Lane Bryant.  And lastly, if you are really struggling to get the right fit, you may have to purchase something and then take it to a tailor for alterations.

Personal note: as a short-waisted “new apple” I really like the shape of these peplum blazers for my shape.  They have stretch.  They close just under the bust, creating that “faux waist” I talk about in my Styling Tips for Plus Size Apple Shapes post.  And they flare out over the tummy offering a bit of camouflage.  My only complaint is that they could be just a tad longer.  They are 29″ from the shoulder, and I prefer 30″ – 31″.  But, we can’t have everything!

Gucci Belts

I added the trendy Gucci belt with this look.  If you want to show it off, just tuck in the front of your t-shirt.  As I’ve said, I haven’t personally tried the Double G Gucci belts, but they are still the “it” accessory.  Sadly, they aren’t large enough for me.  ?  However, they come as large as a size 20 (or 44″ waist)!  See the updated size chart below for choosing the correct size.  Both the thinner Double G Gucci belts and the wider Double G Gucci belts now come up to a size 120!  The latter is probably a better choice for jeans depending on your personal preference.  So these belts are accessible to those with larger waists [and much larger wallets]!  If they’re not in your budget, here is an alternative!

    1. Hi Bev,
      I try to the majority of the time (like 95% of the time) try to use items that go to at least a 24W. I can try to include more 24W+ sizes or alternatives when possible. I’ll see what I can do…

  1. I absolutely LOVE this look but it would be really nice to see pics of curvy women wearing it instead of skinny models to get the right perspective.

    I’m very much enjoying your posts and look forward to them so please don’t stop 🙂

    1. Thanks for the feedback, Mary. Unfortunately, it is just not possible for me, at this time, to use images other than what the retailer/brand can provide. I do hope to be able to use my own images in the future, so that I can have a lot more control over things, like model size, etc.

  2. I follow your blog and love the outfits. I am really surprised to see you still advertising the Gucci belt considering the recent controversy with them manufacturing a blackface turtleneck for sale.

    1. Hi Ani,
      First of all, thank you for following and supporting the blog. Second, I can understand your surprise at seeing Gucci promoted on my blog today as they have recently rightfully been called out for racism and a lack of diversity. As you know, I have regularly featured Gucci here on the blog. And since this story broke, I have been thinking about how to handle this as a blogger in the fashion industry. And let me preface all of these thoughts with the full acknowledgement that I am white and therefore privileged to even be in a position to “think about a response.” Also, I am open to hear what others, especially people of color, have to say about this issue.

      When T.I. and some other rappers I follow on IG called for a three month boycott, I thought that sounded like a possible response for me as a consumer and blogger. Then I read about Dapper Dan’s planned meeting with Gucci’s CEO to discuss their racism and diversity problem. At that point, I realized that Dapper Dan’s stance was to hold them accountable, but also, if possible, to try to work with the brand [granted he has a vested interest], to create a plan to move forward. And the outcome of the meeting was, I thought, a good start to trying to right some of these wrongs.

      So, in my mind, I was thinking: yes, let’s move forward because I think their plan is a pretty good start [in theory, I’d like to see the actual outcomes]. But, at the same time, I know I’m not in a position to say that I accept their apology or find their diversity plans acceptable. And upon further reflection, I now see that, because it’s not my place, maybe I have been offensive in trying to move forward. And I am truly sorry if I have offended you. I will continue to follow this situation, listen to what others, especially PoC, have to say, and think about better ways to be an ally. I hope you will accept my apology.

      Sincerely,
      Alexa

      1. Alexa,
        I’ve never posted a comment online ever but after reading your Gucci response let me say two things:

        1. I found it very thoughtful and well written. As a person of color I appreciated you being introspective and honest in your thought process about their recent blackface controversy and lack of diversity. To be transparent, I wasn’t offended. I’m seriously just looking for ideas and I’ve seen that belt and your info on it in several posts, so the “Racist Gucci” alarm just didn’t go off. However, thank you for being an ally.

        2. I enjoy your posts. You always give me lots of outfit ideas and product information.

        Keep up the great work!

  3. I personally love that you continue to post similar outfits. A lot of times the outfits you post have items that are no longer available, so repeats/refreshes are helpful for people like me! Even though I don’t have a need for blazer outfit, I keep watching for the next cute thing! Thank you!

  4. Can you style cropped wide leg chinos? I’ve seen them popping up at Boden, Everlane, and Gap. I just don’t want to see them styled with another tee and blazer combo. I’m busty and blazers bore me to tears and aren’t always flattering. Plus it gets hotter than a grease fire here from spring through early fall. I have blazers that rarely get any play.

    1. I am starting to get more request for these. I will make it a point to come up with a post with cropped wide leg chinos sometime soon. So, stay tuned!!! 🙂

  5. Hi Alexa,

    Personally, I love the blazer, tee, and jeans outfits, so please keep them coming. On another note, I was wondering if you’ve checked out Loft recently? I purchased some of their plus size range during their Black Friday sale, and I have to say, I’m impressed. In fact, I’ve found some shirts to buy instead of the ones you’ve posted either because yours were sold out in my size, or I didn’t love the style but loved the color. I haven’t noticed any of your items to be from Loft so I wanted to give you another resource if you’re interested. So far, I’m really happy with their fit and quality and have scored some killer deals. Thank you for all of your posts and inspiration!

    1. Thanks, Celia! I have featured Loft a few times over on Facebook. But, I think you’re right, only maybe once that I can think of on the blog. I actually have a folder on my computer with Loft items I have been thinking about featuring, but then my ADD takes over and I get lost on some other project. Lol. So, I have the intention of including them and will be posting from them soon. 🙂

  6. I never post anywhere online ever. That isn’t an exaggeration. I don’t have a facebook, instagram, nothing, but I really enjoy and appreciate your blog. I was in a rut with the clothes in my closet. Your posts help me to re-think what I already have, and to consider adding pieces thoughtfully rather than on impulse. Also, as I was surfing around looking for ideas and inspiration I found LOTS of stuff out there, but none of it looked like anything I actually own. The clothes and outfit stylings you create are NORMAL things that REAL people have and wear everyday. Thanks!

    1. Angie,
      Thank you so much! I truly appreciate you taking the time to comment! I always love to hear when people find the blog to be helpful or inspiring. Thank you for reading! 🙂

  7. I am officially a stalker — I am addicted to your blog and IG! I wish I found you a long time ago. And as I posted on your IG I wish I could have you for a day help me style my closet! Anyway, I am learning a lot and appreciate your inspiration and dedication to sharing all kinds of outfits at many different price points and sizes. I myself have put on some weight lately so am in larger than normal sizes and I love that you have resources for me too. Thank you!

  8. Thanks for being honest and open in regards to the Gucci situation. I am a person of color and a teacher and recognize the struggle in addressing issues like this one. My students often ask questions as they trust me and my opinion. Most of the time I have to “get back to them” as I want to make sure my response is appropriate. Again, thanks for your candor and being an ally.

  9. Before I had my kiddo at 39, I knew what makeup to wear, how to do my hair and how to dress. But, as many of us do, I just stopped taking care of myself after I had him. Now at 48, I’m working with different hair/skin/body so it’s taken a hot minute to figure it all out. I’ve gotten my health in check, finally found the hair color that matches my pre-kids/pre-hormones color, found a great cut and just learned how to do my makeup with a local makeup artist. Next up…my clothes. I’m a 16 now and honestly, it’s time for me to embrace that that’s my size! So I was legit just scouring Pinterest and looking up everything I can find for plus size style for an apple shape and I stumbled upon a post from your blog. Holy. Night. Your Weekend Inspiration outfits on here are sooo fabulous and exactly what I was looking for! I’d just like to say a giant, sincere thank you from the bottom of my heart for this blog, Alexa!
