From meeting to after-hours drinks and pretty much every occasion in between, this season’s white blazer is an everyday essential. Traditionally worn formal, this season it is all about a more casual take on the white blazer. Worn with oversized matching pants for the office, over a slip dress or with straight-leg jeans by day, then decorate with fine jewelry and a sleek bag for evening. The great thing about the white blazer is that there are failsafe ways you can wear it: here are my tips for the season.
Discretely elegant and chic with a hint of laidback cool, a white blazer is your secret fashion-forward weapon when it comes to mastering androgynous style during office hours. It’s as cool with a simple tee and sneakers as it is with a silk blouse and high heels sandals. Oversized treatment is still the season’s go-to. This past few seasons brands across the board seem to be opting for boyfriend fits and exaggerated proportions.
Transitioning to a warmer season means simplicity, ease, and sophistication and there’s nothing better, easier, and more flattering than crisp whites for spring and summer. During the transition into spring, go plain and tonal and wear your blazer them with the same color dress or shorts. Leave it to a french girl to get you excited about the spring weather and wearing all-white. One can’t help but dream about all the potential places where all-white can be worn without getting rained on.
Layering over classic oversized button-down shirts it’s been a go-to for me this season. I either wear my white blazer with cropped fitted trousers and square-toe heels or with slim-leg jeans and a pair of chunky flat boots. The silhouette of a slim leg and big baggy shirt when paired with a bigger boxy blazer feels easy and modern. You can also keep the buttons on the shirt undone and pair with a second-skin tank top underneath to add some layering for a perfect balance between grown-up and sexy.
