Velvet Blazer

Velvet Blazer is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and versatile I bought this jacket last year before the holidays, and ended up wearing it with just about everything. The quality of the velvet is beautiful and seems higher quality than other velvet pieces I've come across. It has a subtle sheen that makes it look unique and stylish. The jacket does have a slim fit but is also a bit long, so petite ladies might find the proportions a bit awkward. I personally found it a tad long on me, but I usually prefer a longer silhouette anyway, so it wasn't an issue (for reference, I'm 5' 3" and 100 lbs).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. I absolutely love this blazer! The black is so rich and the overall look is luxe. I've been searching for black blazer for some time and I'm so glad I found this one. A closet staple that you can dress up or down. Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Parisienne Perfect I have been in the market for a great blazer for a long while. This Blazer is a little bit longer than a traditional blazer yet so much more sleek and sliming. There are no lapel collars and makes this super stylish and gets you that slim look. The velvet is expensive looking and soft. Truly something for anyone to pack going to Paris. I am 5"4', 120lbs with a C bra size and the size 0 blazer fits like a glove with enough give to move quite comfortably and no fear of rips. LOVE LOVE LOVE! Thanks Madewell

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect classy jacket I'm very happy with my purchase. This jacket is made with high quality velvet fabric with an impeccable cut. Versatile, I wear it with a nice dress for special occasions, and also with jeans. The length ( a little longer than a standard jacket ) adds a rock chic touch to my style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for Love this jacket! I ordered a size 8, although I usually wear a 6, because I wanted to make sure it would not be tight through the back. So the body is larger and boxier than I would have normally chosen, but adequate room through the back is the trade-off. No biggie! The fabric is soft and luxe, the lining is fine (doesn't pull), and the sleeves are the right length. It's a good value, especially when on sale. It's easy to wardrobe, so I will wear this a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous, favorite purchase of the year I am in love with this blazer. I've been looking for a velvet blazer for awhile, and haven't found any I really loved. I didn't have particularly high hopes for this one when I ordered it, either, but I was so, so pleasantly surprised. It's absolutely beautiful, and looks WAY more expensive than it is. It's not shiny and novelty-looking, so it's not something that you can only wear to a holiday party, but you can definitely tell it's velvet (which was an issue for me with Madewell's black velvet pants). Easy to dress up with trousers, or down with jeans, I will be wearing it all season. It fits exactly as it does in the picture. Seriously, this is the best purchase I've made in a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect holiday jacket! I have been searching for the right velvet/tuxedo blazer for a few years -- finally found it! The lines are simple, elegant and flattering, and it looks great with everything -- jeans, leather pants, skirts. Fabric feels like silk velvet, with just the right amount of stretch. Color is a deep, rich black. I'm 5' 8" and 128 lbs. and ordered size 2 online -- the 0 fit well but the arms were too short, and the 4 was too big. (It's true to my usual Madewell size, which might run slightly large.) Counting on this to be a classic. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cut! I love how this blazer hangs! Very structured and not frumpy/dumpy like some lower quality velvet blazers. One thing to note is it is on the longer side- or maybe I've just been leaning toward more cropped blazers and jackets these days. It ends sort of lower on the butt/upper thighs which I wasnt expecting but I love it!
