Black blazers are an obvious office staple that every working woman should have in her wardrobe. I wear mine to death and I work in a fairly casual and fashion-forward environment. But for summer a black blazer can feel so dark and blah. A crisp white blazer is equally versatile and classic, and it adds the same instant polish, but a white blazer feels so much chicer for summer. Which is why the blogger favorite has been added to my list of wardrobe classics for summer. There are so many ways to wear white blazers in summer, making it well worth the investment.
Wear it like you would your trusty old black blazer — over sundresses and paired with skirts for an office-appropriate look; with jeans for a put-together date night look; rested on your shoulders with a cocktail dress for chilly summer weddings and parties. See? You can wear white blazers in summer with basically everything. I like to leave one in my office because the AC is always blasting, and it’s easy to just toss on my shoulders while I work without dressing down my outfit too much.
There are plenty of white blazers at every price point, but I highly recommend investing in one that fits really well and that doesn’t feel cheap. Trust me, you’ll be wearing it to death. Fit is actually even more important for a white blazer because you’ll probably be wearing it with thinner pieces underneath like summer dresses, thin tanks and tops, and lightweight button-ups.
