The J. Crew Parke Blazer in Velvet in Dried Rose is one of my favorite pieces from the most recent website launch. I've said it before, but I will say it again, no other retailer does color better than J. Crew. And, this blazer is absolutely fabulous. The "dried rose" color is vibrant and striking--it's perfect for fall! The color pairs so well with so many current and past J. Crew offerings. It looks spectacular with stripes. The blazer quality is superb. The material is luxurious, fluffy, and incredibly soft. This blazer gets a 5-star rating on the website, which is spot on. Here are two IRL pictures of me wearing the blazer:
And, here are the website images that sold me on the blazer:
This blazer really "pops" against stripes and distressed denim. The blazer fits TTS. I'm wearing my blazer with an older J. Crew shirt from 2014, but the J. Crew Striped Button-Up Shirt with Ruffles works well too (fit is TTS).
Thanks for stopping by!
