Magnolia requested a few picks for dressy petite black blazers, so here we go:
Tahari ASL Solid-Crepe Peplum Jacket – was $139, now $104.25
Magnolia specifically mentioned that she was hoping for 3/4 sleeves, and this sleek little blazer delivers. I’m a fan of the inverted lapels and feel they give this option a dressy feel. Available in petite sizes 6P – 14P. Also in regular sizes in black or mustard, and here’s a similar style in sizes 12 – 28.
Talbots Doupioni Jacket – was $199, now $149.25

If we’re talking evening or cocktail-level dressy, you can’t go wrong with doupioni. This jacket has full-length sleeves, but silk breathes so it certainly won’t be stifling. It’d be fabulous for evening with slim slacks and a subtly patterned blouse. Available in petite sizes 0P- 16P in this black as well as platinum or royal blue. Also available in regular, plus, and petite plus sizes. Size availability varies by color. Talbots also has this wave matelasse blazer with 3/4 sleeves, but it’s only available in black in a few petite sizes.
Anne Klein Single Breasted Jacket – was $99, now $91 – $99
Not much of a sale, I know, and many sizes are still full-price, but this was a surprisingly challenging request! This is the least dressy of the three, but also quite classy and versatile. It could certainly go to the office, but would also work with a killer dress and heels for a night on the town. Available in black as well as navy in petite sizes 2 – 14. Also available in regular and plus sizes.
Other not-currently-on-sale resources for dressy petite black blazers:
- Nordstrom – Always a great bet for petite work-wear. Love this reverse lapel blazer.
- J.Crew – Many are workwear-esque, but a few less office-y options like this sleek regent blazer.
- eBay – This is a tough triad of attributes, so do check eBay for other options.
