J.Crew Regent Blazer

Business Casual outfit for meetings

My closet is full of well-made and tailored staples that generally make it easy – and exciting – for me to get dressed each day. I regularly shop at the same brands and believe in investing in pieces that make you feel good when you get dressed.

I’m also of the belief that we should all have those formulaic outfits in our back pocket that make us feel confident and ready to seize the day – no matter what occasions or important meetings it may hold. This outfit featuring the J.Crew Regent Blazer has been one of those outfits for me for years.

J.Crew Regent Blazer

I’m love, love, love a good blazer. I have amassed a collection of blazers that I have in rotation and pair often with my favorite jeans.

I’ve been wearing the J.Crew Regent Blazer in Wool Flannel for years. I own it in black, navy and camel and reach for it again and again for its flattering silhouette, quality fabric and stylish details like a subtle popped collar and a slightly longer length that makes it easy to style. It is sharp and sleek and easy to both dress up or dress down.

The actually brand makes a collection of Regent Blazers with other fabric choices from time to time such as the Four Season Stretch version but the Wool Flannel style is my favorite.

The wool fabric comes with a hint of stretch and the blazer features a standing collar, functional buttons at the cuffs and flap pockets. I also love that it is lined.

The blazer is available in regular, petite and tall sizing and goes up to a size 24. I own the style in both sizes 6 and 8 but I would recommend you size up if you’d like a bit more room for layering underneath.

I own several J.Crew blazers from their selection of women’s blazers but the Regent in Wool Flannel is a sure favorite.

I work in a casual industry so this is a perfect example of a business meeting outfit that I regularly wear.

I paired the J.Crew Regent Blazer in Wool Flannel with my favorite Agolde Nico Jeans I wear in a size 28. They have a high rise fit and a long, tailored leg that makes them perfect as a more dressy denim in my opinion. They feature a button fly closure and I prefer the styles without much stretch for a more fitted look.

The look also features a favorite white tee (recommend sizing up) and my go-to pumps by Sarah Flint. I own these pumps in more than four colors at this point because they are so comfortable and so beautifully made.

What to Wear to a Business Meeting

Depending on what line of work you are in, there’s a myriad of options of what to wear to a business meeting. I personally generally gravitate towards blazers with jeans and a favorite shoe or I’ll wear a trouser with a look similar to this one:

I always want to be comfortable but most importantly I want my business meeting outfit to reflect me and my personal style. It wouldn’t feel authentic for me to be showing up to my meetings wearing a suit but I certainly would feel I should or would want to if I worked in a more formal industry.

Brands I love to shop at for business meeting pieces include J.Crew, M.M.LaFleur, & Other Stories, LaLigne, Ann Taylor, Mango and Nordstrom

I generally aim to have pieces I would buy for meetings also work for more casual looks. I prefer versatile pieces that can be dressed up or dressed down. Especially given I travel a lot and take meetings while on the road, it is important to me that pieces I pack can work for a variety of outfits.

    Did you go for your regular pump size when ordering the Sarah flint perfect pump? I find the extra cushion to be a bit snug out of the box and debating to go up a size .

    Hi Meghan! Would the J Crew Regent blazer in black work over the Rhode Lulani dress in black, do you think?

    Thanks for this post, Meghan! Super helpful…you say you have both sz 6 and 8 in the Regent blazer — what’s the size of the black one you’re wearing here?
