Best Travel Blazer
Written By: Annie Jarvis
Travel Fashion Help! Reader Asks:
I’m looking for the best travel blazer that will be suitable for business across Europe. Preferably it will be smart, stylish, lightweight, comfy, won’t wrinkle, and will wash easily. Any recommendations?
Finding a blazer that is suitable for business or leisure can be difficult, as it needs to fulfill many requirements. While there are plenty of options available, many of them aren’t appropriate for being packed into a suitcase and taken abroad.
We asked our readers some of their favorite blazers and this is what they suggested. The best thing is that even if you’re not traveling for business, blazers are a smart addition to any city travel wardrobe.
Here are their top recommendations on the best travel blazer:
The Uniqlo blazer is a simple and stylish tailored jacket that’s fantastic for travel. Made from stretch polyester fabric, this blazer defies wrinkles and is unbelievably lightweight, which makes it perfect for packing away in your suitcase and pulling it out for a meeting abroad.
It’s a traditional and formal jacket so it’s ideal for business but it’s also extremely comfortable, so you won’t feel too stuffy while wearing it. Unfortunately, as it’s dry-clean only, it may not be as easy to wash if you’re traveling. Choose a dark color that hides dirt and marks.

This blazer from Merona is a good choice if your trip involves a colder climate. With a lightweight sweatshirt feel, this blazer is a favorite for its comfort and warmth as well as its affordable price.
While acrylic isn’t as wrinkle resistant as polyester, it won’t scrunch up to an unwearable level, and the pattern of the jacket is ideal for hiding the odd crease. It’s machine washable too, making it a lot easier to clean abroad.

➌ Tart Collections
Another favorite is the Tart Terry Blazer, which looks polished and conservative, yet is comfortable and soft to wear. Made from modal and cotton, this blazer is more likely to wrinkle; however, this can be reduced by hanging it up as soon as you unpack.

➍ Forever 21
Forever 21 blazers are an inexpensive and stylish choice that can be used in both your business and evening wardrobes. Polyester fabric makes them wrinkle resistant, and the thin and light material makes it travel-friendly and packable.
You have to be careful as many of these jackets are dry-clean only. However, their versatility makes them a real winner since you can take from day to night, from a business meeting to drinks and dinner in the evening.
As a bonus, Forever 21 also has an affordable Plus Size selection, too!
If you’re not a fan of the traditional black blazer, then this Academia Ahoy jacket could be just the thing for you. Again, this blazer could be worn for work or a night out and has a really cute sailor style. It’s a popular piece from the super cute online boutique Modcloth; like many of their clothing items, it’s also available in extended sizing from XS to 4X!
Since the shell is made from cotton, it’s likely to wrinkle more than others, which means it will need hanging pretty quickly. However, it can be machine washed, and can be worn as a light layer in various seasons.
Another cotton choice is the Caslon blazer from Nordstrom. This jacket is popular for female travelers because it’s soft, breathable, and can be hand-washed if you don’t have access to a machine.
The downside is that it may wrinkle, so it’s important to hang it up as soon as you arrive. The plus side is that it’s as comfortable as a sweater but with a blazer-like fit – an easy layer for your airplane outfit.
Tip: Hang clothes in the bathroom while you shower to steam the wrinkles out. Make sure you let it fully dry before wearing it again.
This Travelsmith blazer is made from rayon, nylon, and spandex, making it an ideal material for business travel. Not only does it look smart, but it’s wrinkle-resistant and easily washable, giving you a hassle-free trip.
