Review J.Crew Lightweight Sweater Blazer

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Happy Easter to those who celebrate it. We had some friends visit from New York and ate way too much food. I'll have to write a post about it!

Today I have for you the new J.Crew Sophie Lightweight Sweater Blazer. I have the fall winter version in 2 colors and decided to try the new version that's great for spring and air conditioned summer. 

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall and typically a size PXS or XXS in sweaters/tops. 

For this sweater blazer I'm wearing a size XXS. This sweater runs true to size in my opinion. I like the casual look of the sweater. If you want a more fitted look size down one size. 

The question that I really wanted to know the answer to - is the sweater really thinner than the fall/winter version? The answer is - yes, but only ever so slightly. It's made out of cotton, polyester and wool. It's definitely very soft to touch. J.Crew says you can wear this all year round. I think it's possible if your summers are very cool or if you're sitting in an air conditioned room all day. I would definitely not wear this outside during the summer. No way. 

Right now J.Crew is having a 40% off sale with promo code SPRINGTOIT. I think it's worth the sale price. The heavier weighted version of it has it available in petite sizing. 

I'm having my morning tea with Robert Smith 😂

I think it's a great piece for work and goes with almost anything. It's also long enough that it covers your bum. It looks casual but still professional enough for the office. This sweater blazer also comes in two other colors. A pretty pink which I also tried on and baby blue

That's all for me! Don't forget to use the 40% off coupon: SPRINGTOIT



  1. Omg we have the same taste. I tried this on. I thought it looked a bit geriatric on me 😞

  2. How does the petite compare with regular sizing in this blazer?

    1. I didn't get to try the petite sizing on because when I ordered the fall/winter version last year petite wasn't available. They just added that option recently. Otherwise I would have ordered it in petite. The spring version does not come in petite sizing yet. I am pretty sure they will add that on as well. I think they want to see how popular it is before making petite an option.

  3. Thanks so much for your review. I bought this in the XXXS and it fits perfectly. It was a bit of a gamble because i’m from Australi and wouldn’t have been easy to return if it wasn’t! It is very hard to find petite clothes in Oz so very grateful I stumbled upon your post. I’m about an inch taller than you and fit a size 2 in Lulu.

    1. Yay glad you like it! It's def hard for me to find work clothes. I have this sweater in 3 colors. They're great.
