Now on Sale: The Machine-Washable Blazer That’s Revitalizing My Summer Wardrobe

An unexpectedly versatile addition to my regular rotation.

By Madeleine Kim

When it comes to my wardrobe, one of the things I care about most is versatility. That may sound boring, but for me, it’s invigorating: If I’m going to add a piece to my closet, I’d better come up with at least a few distinct ways to style it. This rule doesn’t just help me get more use out of my clothing. It also forces me to be more creative—because if something truly only looks good with one other item in my closet, it really has no place in my wardrobe.

My focus on versatility doesn’t stop me from embracing fun pieces with personality like the Moreland jacket in light orchid. I’ve adored this happy, romantic color since the first time I saw it, and after a recent closet cleanout where I got rid of a different, rarely-worn blazer, I decided it was time for a new Moreland color to enter my life. 

For the unacquainted: The Moreland jacket is a tailored, single-breasted blazer made from our packable OrigamiTech fabric. It’s been a bestseller for years—not only because its classic shape makes it incredible easy to style, but also because it’s super lightweight, wrinkle-resistant, and completely machine-washable. To give you an idea of how great it is, I don’t know a single person who owns it in only one color. 

Thanks to our Summer Sale, you can now snag the Moreland jacket for $168 (originally $335). Here are just a few of the ways I’m excited to wear it.

With a Slip Dress

I got this simple navy slip dress at a vintage shop in Brooklyn seven years ago, and it’s been my go-to for weddings and last-minute events ever since. To keep it feeling special and interesting—especially when I’ll be outfit-repeating among a similar crowd—I like to switch up my accessories. The Moreland jacket brightens things up with a summery splash of color, and it’s lightweight enough to wear during the warm months. I’ve also styled it with a pearl necklace from Ana Luisa and an old pair of heeled flip-flops (similar: Alohas).

As a Shirt

One of the Moreland’s best features is that it’s lightweight enough to cosplay as a structured top. Here, I’m wearing it layered underneath the more oversized Tamar blazer (an old M.M. piece that’s similar to the Janette jacket) to create the illusion of a vest, but you can also wear it as a standalone top. I completed my outfit with my beloved Milo jeans (see below for proof of how stretchy they are), plus those same heeled flip-flops and pearl necklace. If you’re intrigued by the blazer-as-shirt look but prefer a bit more coverage, try a lace top underneath.

With Shorts

I snagged a sample of the Hallie top the last time I was at the M.M. office, and it immediately became one of my favorite pieces. The easy fit and just-right length, the unique and eye-catching contrast stitching—it’s just the best. For events where I want to dress up without veering too formal, I pair it with these pleated white shorts from Aritzia and pointy-toe kitten heels. The Moreland jacket gives the outfit an extra bit of polish, while the light orchid color stops it from feeling corporate.
