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 capsule 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 striped blazer from Amazon Fashion is a good choice for travel. It is lightweight, comfortable, and wrinkle resistant with an affordable price tag.
Three-quarter length sleeves and fun stripes add spring-ready charm to this blazer. Dress it up with a skirt or dress or wear it with a simple T-shirt and jeans. Either way, it’s perfect for sightseeing!

Alexander + David
Another favorite is a Alexander + David boyfriend blazer, which looks polished and conservative, yet is comfortable and soft to wear. Its sleek, long lapels give it a great silhouette. You can wear it dressed up or down, taking it from day to night easily.
Made from a polyester blend, this blazer is not likely to wrinkle; but you still might want to hang it up as soon as you unpack.
If you’re looking for something that will keep you warm and cozy as well as looking good, then this is jacket is ideal.
Tip: garment bags help keep your clothing wrinkle-free in your suitcase!
This 1.State plaid blazer provides a classic look for any travel wardrobe, as well as business and evening wear. Remade in a playful tone with ruched sleeves and an asymmetrical double-breasted front in a pastel-brightened plaid pattern.
You have to be careful as many 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, this blazer is also available up to 3X here!
If you’re not a fan of the traditional black blazer, then this Fine and Sandy Blazer could be just the thing for you. Again, this blazer could be worn for work or a night out and has a really cute 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. Sizes are also available from 1X-4X here!
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!
If you love linen, you’ll love this lightweight blazer from Free People made with a linen blend. It’s slouchy style is sure to keep you looking and feeling cool.
A single-button closure, pockets, and exposed buttons on the cuffs give just the right amount of dressy detail for you to wear it casually or with a dress and wedges for dinner out.
