Cute everyday blazer.
Wore this to work with jeans, a white silk button down, and brown booties and it was a great casual but professional work look. Turned up the cuffs of the blazer to show off a nice lavender silk lining.

Great trendy blazer for work
Very nice tailored slim fit. The zippers add a bit of edge and the plum color is very nice for fall/winter. Nice fun blazer for work. True to size. I own theory blazers and they are sized about the same.

Love the style
The zippers side pockets gave a new edge to the blazer. I loved the color. The fit was a bit large on my petite frame but still pretty cute.

Runs small
Cool style, nice color. I could hook the front no problem but the lapels sat funny on my 36DD chest; couldn't wear it.

My favorite blazer ever
I never buy from RTR, but could not bear to send this one back. I knew two years from now, I would wish I still had this piece. Flattering open or closed (small clasp in the center). Very comfortable and professional. The color of purple is subdued but interesting.

Great blazer!
This blazer is great! I only have it 4 stars because I thought it would be more purple-ly and I felt the color was more raisin (had a lot more brown in it than expected.) Also, wish it had real pockets :) Fit great and was very comfortable.

Nice Work Blazer
I liked this for work - a little different, funky details with the exposed zippers. The fabric is very polyester-feeling, which was not my favorite, but it was nice as a rental. I wore it with slim fitting pants; not sure how it would look with jeans (i.e. as a more casual blazer).

Versatile jacket
Very nice fit. Sleeves can be rolled or worn straight down. Nice color, between a purple and burgundy, great detailing with zippers and pockets (non functioning). I wore to work but could easily be paired with jeans...blue, white, black or grey.

Perfect work blazer!
I loved this blazer - the color is perfect for fall and it fits beautifully against my size 6 frame. Ran true to size. Nice way to get a little flair and fashion forward-ness into your work wear without going over the top.

Gorgeous color with a little bit of edge! A touch tight in the arms.
Love love this jacket. The color is beautiful. Rented for work in my usual size 6. Fits is okay but there is not a lot of room in the upper arm area. Sizing up might be too large in the waist. Otherwise fit is doable-will definitely wear to work, I just won't plan on moving much :)

Size down!
This blazer definitely runs big. I appreciated the big shoulders b/c I have disapproportionately big shoulders but the waist part looked awkward when I tried to use the clasp because it was about 4 inches too wide.

Great Color! Upgrade to so many outfits!
The color is a beautiful cross between purple and burgundy. The detailing in the zippers and cut are really unique and upgrade a white shirt with jeans so simply. It's perfect for shoulder seasons because it's fairly light weight but enough to keep you just a bit warmer. I would wear this a lot if I owned it. Really loved it. Only pic I have, wish I had thought to take a better one to show case color and fit.

Loved it!
This blazer is kind of boxy and the sleeves hit me just above the wrist, but I still really liked the way it looked. It's kind of flowy but the fabric is heavy enough that it looks tailored and professional. It's a darker plum color in person (which I actually liked better than how it looks in the photos). Would rent again!

Image makes jacket look more tailored and structured than it actually is. Fabric is rather casual.
Image makes jacket look more tailored and structured than it actually is. Fabric is rather casual and "flimsy" so more on the everyday spectrum.

It looks really nice but it is a bit boxy. I probably wouldn't order it again, although I did get a few compliments.

A Blazer I almost can't part with
This could be a wonderful wardrobe staple piece. The blazer is well made and very easy to work with. Slightly shorter length made it great for all you petites ladies out there. Add this to your everyday outfit and you will feel so put together in an instant.

So cute!
I didn't love this when I first got it but it grew on me. I wore it to work with a floral ted baker camisole that matched perfectly and got tons of compliments. The jackets is a little on the shorter/boxy side but still very flattering. The fabric, drape and the color are all beautiful. I would probably rent this again. It is so unique, I like that I didn't have to buy it- since it is the sort of thing that cannot really be a staple. Overall so happy with this rental!

I loved this so much I didn't want to give it back!!
The color is beautiful and goes with everything. Perfect piece to wear to work or out on casual occasions. I loved that this blazer was form fitting as I tend to drown in blazers.

Boxy cut
This was much more boxy than I expected. I'm normally a 10 but rented the 8 and 12 as it was unavailable. I think the 10 would've been perfect and maybe given me more of a waist or shape. I wore it open most of the day because it was just very unflattering especially on a larger chest. I also rolled the sleeves to break up the overall shape. I would not rent again.

Professional with a twist.
The color of this jacket is amazing. It is dark enough that you aren't screaming your presence, but unique enough to stand out. The cut and detailing give it a bit of edge. I opted to wear with a pair of black skinny jeans with a bit of flair of their own to keep it casual, but play into the edginess. The size was perfect, if a had done a size down I think it would have been tight in the shoulders and been too tight in the chest when hooked close. I received lots of compliments, highly recommend.

Beautiful plum color and tailored fit. Paired it with a blouse and black pants for a job interview. I was very comfortable - and felt great in this gorgeous jacket.

It's not as fitted as I thought it would be. Overall, the color is great with contrasting zippers.

Gorgeous. Perfect fit.
This blazer is so gorgeous. You can tell it's very high quality. The size 4 fit me like it was tailored for me. I'm usually a size 4 dress/top/bottom so I would say this fits pretty true to size! Glad I chose this piece in my unlimited order!

Great for work!
Cute jacket for work. The color is definitely more of a dark plum, so I preferred it with lighter colored pants. It was too close to wear with navy or black pants. Arms were a little tight for me, but not uncomfortably so.

Good for Work, But Size Down.
I ordered a 6 (normally am an 8/10 in pants sizes) and didn't realize that the top half of me is actually fairly small and more of a 4/6. This felt a little big on me, but I still wore it with the plaid skirt I also ordered. The color is nice, but it also seemed to wrinkle easily in the arms. Probably won't rent this one again.

Nice jacket for work.
The material is nice and the color is a pretty plum color. The zipper detail is also nice and edgy. I would say this runs true to size. I sized down but my regular size would've worked better.

Professional with and Edge
I wasn't sure about this blazer when I first received it, but I'm really glad I decided to wear it. The color is really pretty, kind of an eggplant, which is especially nice for fall. The fit was great--very slimming through the midsection and cute with the arms cuffed, although I didn't have any length issues if you wanted to wear them normally. If you're looking for something to wear to work that would still be cute at drinks afterwards, or if you want something professional but a little more interesting or edgy than your normal blazer, this is a great choice! I'd definitely recommend it.
