SHOP NOW!: An Affordable & Comfortable Ponte Blazer from Aldi!


Sometimes, there’s fashion in unexpected places, like Aldi! I’ve definitely purchased boots, slippers, ballet flats, & socks for myself in their “fun aisle,” never paying much attention to the clothing provided since I couldn’t try it on & didn’t want to bother with returns. However, as I’ve been in the hunt for a comfortable & basic blazer recently, I was pleased to come across the Serra ponte blazer in black & tan @Aldi ($17.99, available in sizes S-XL).

While this item can only be found in stores, also rolled up in the package, I definitely recommend it if you’re looking for an affordable & easy piece to wear over a blouse, dress, or jumpsuit. I had to steam the blazer when I wanted to wear it; also, I found the sleeves were a touch long for me, wearing the XL), but I was pleased with the fit & how I styled it for a professional occasion.

I’ll likely not get the tan option, but it would be a nice option to coordinate with plaids & with rich, fall colors, like hunter green, burgundy, & rust.

Basics for a Bargain: A Ponte Double-Breasted Blazer, Inspired by Jennifer Lopez, Olivia Munn, & More!


I have to say, I’m not much of a blazer gal. I have a few & sometimes break them out for pictures, but cardigans are usually more my style. I tend to find that the structure & ungiving material of most jackets creates an uncomfortable & heavy feel all day long. However, I’m starting to see a big trend with blazers for this fall, which has got me rethinking my blazer game. A double-breasted ponte blazer is clearly the way to go for all looks professional & street wear, as seen recently on stylish celebrities like singer Jennifer Lopez, actress Olivia Munn, model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, blogger Olivia Palermo, & America’s sweetheart herself, Jennifer Aniston.

Now you don’t have to spend the kind of money that these celebs do (on brands like Balmain) for a chic, all-purpose & neutral menswear-inspired piece. The double-breasted ponte blazer @dressbarn is not only a new fall arrival, but it is available for shoppers in misses, plus, & petites sizes, from S-3X.

The big gold button trend isn’t going anywhere either to help accentuate your fall style. I’m seeing it everywhere, on sailor trousers & skirts, to blouses & dresses too! This particular stretchy jacket is great to mix with your favorite denim bottoms, a sleek pencil skirt, or leggings to create a chic athleisure look.
