No One Will Guess How Comfy You Are in This Stretchy Blazer — and It Comes in 26 Colors
You can travel in class AND comfort with this comfy knit jacket.
Whether you travel often for business or like maintaining a professional look while traveling, we can all probably agree that comfortable outfit options that fit the work-attire bill are limited. “Flexible” isn’t really the first adjective you would use to describe most work clothes, and while dresses and blouses may offer some more breathing room, they can also leave you bouncing in your seat to stay warm under the intense airplane AC.
If that sounds like you, the tough times are over. Amazon shoppers have found the perfect travel blazer that’s both work-appropriate and super comfortable — and it’s under $28, with some colors costing even less.

With over 1,700 five-star ratings, the review section on the Auliné Collection Women's Casual Work Knit Blazer’s page is filled with photos of happy shoppers modeling their new wardrobe staple. Many reviewers point out how versatile the piece is, saying they can easily dress it up for work or pair it with jeans for a more relaxed look.
The fabric, which is a polyester, rayon, and spandex blend, not only stays wrinkle-free while you’re in transit, but it also has some stretch so you can layer it underneath a jacket on colder days and still move around with ease. For an added touch of style, the three-quarter sleeves feature a ruching detail at the cuff that gives them a chic look similar to perfectly-rolled sleeves.
Customers warn that the jacket runs a bit small, so it might be wise to size up — and the brand has a handy measurement guide on the listing to help you determine the right fit for you. Despite some sizing disparities, shoppers stress how worthwhile the purchase was.
“This jacket is great for work — not super formal, but dressy enough to wear with a skirt, over a dress, or with a pair of pants,” one reviewer explained. “Also works great with jeans if trying to go dressy/casual. My husband accidentally threw this in the wash and dryer, and it came out fine. Material is more like a thicker spandex material vs what you'd find in an up-scale suit collection, but works just fine for me. I'm 5'2" and 120 lbs, 34B chest, and I bought the medium, which fits snug. I might try the large next time. I typically wear an XS or S, so this definitely runs small. However, I plan to buy more — great value!”
With 26 patterns and solids, you can throw one of these on over your blouse or wear it as the main statement piece of an outfit. Choose navy checkered to embody fall fashion, go with lavender — this season’s it-color —or keep things neutral with khaki, beige, brown, charcoal, white, or black.
