Summer Blazer Sale

Judging by our recent dress code poll (and angry emails we get when we feature an interview outfit sans blazer) more than a few of you work in a conservatively attired environment. In such a place, a blazer is usually required. While this is fine and dandy while you're inside the office, you don't want to die of heat exhaustion if you have to meet a client on-site or look like a frazzled mess after running to the bank.pale linen blazer, J. Crew $129.99 down from $178
classic navy pinstripe 4-season blazer, J. Crew $160 down from $240
khaki safari jacket, Banana Republic $99.99 down from $120
patch pocket jacket, Victoria's Secret $79 special

And one last blazer to think about: This floral blazer from J.Crew is $59.99, down from $168. But is it unprofessional? I don't think it is, but I also know florals are decidedly feminine and most dress codes treat feminine and unprofessional as synonyms.

I love the floral blazer. I think you can make it work professionally, though not with the rest of the outfit in the picture (obviously, formal short no-go).
