Great basic
This is a great basic black blazer that works both in and out of the office (one of my main criteria). Nicely constructed. Its fitted throughout and has slight shoulder pads to give it a bit more structure up top. The pads work fine for me but could be problematic if you are broad or plan to wear anything of bulk under this jacket such as a sweater. This blazer works best for me when I've got slimmer tops underneath such as a tank or a tee and I like that it has enough stretch in it that you can push up the sleeves for a more casual look. It flatters my figure as I have a larger chest with a smaller waist and I can button this jacket without any gaps or leave it open and either way it still fits in a very structured manner. As the previous reviewer mentioned, it can be snug in the arms so again, stay away from bulkier tops with this blazer. Overall, would definitely recommend.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Fantastic
These Helmut tops are my go-to tees. I try to snap them up in every color I can find. The fabric is extremely soft and comfy. It has a slightly relaxed fit but is tailored enough that your figure is still discernible. The asymmetrical hemline is a nice detail as well. This top looks great on its own or under a blazer or jacket. Would definitely recommend this top as well as the long sleeve versions.

Beautiful blouse
This is a beautiful blouse and very well-executed. Quality material and the draping on the back is a really lovely detail that did not go unnoticed by others when I wore it. I often times have difficulty finding tailored blouses that work with my shape since I have a slightly large chest and a small waist. This blouse is a wonderful fit - very flattering to the figure and no gaps in the chest area when I button up. It works with my philosophy of buying items that translate both in and out of the office. Looks great on its own or underneath a fitted blazer. Would definitely recommend.
