White blazer is truly a wardrobe essential that we can pull out and restyle every spring/summer. This particular style by Rebecca Minkoff has been so popular. Besides the impeccable cut, structured silhouette, silk material and variety of color options (also here here), what attracted me the most are the unique shawl lapels, pointed hemline and high-low length. No wonder it has been loved by celebrities, trendsetters and fashion bloggers.

Today’s featured looks from Olivia Palermo showed us how versatile it is: It can polish up a laid back, distressed-jeans-with-ballet-flat combo or tone down bold colorful silk-cami-and-sheer-maxi-skirt look. For casual basic look like above right, one or two eye-catching accessories can instantly elevate it, be it a statement bag, an opulent necklace or a pair of trendy sunglasses; For a busy bold look like above left, it’s better to keep all the pieces in a similar color family: the yellow cami, brown printed maxi skirt, strappy sandals and metallic belt are all warm, rich color tones, thus they blend harmoniously without overwhelming.
