Summer is around the corner, I really want to take the time and dedicate myself to a series posts about timeless white essentials. My first pick is white blazers. In my previous post, I shared with you five stylish ways of pairing white blazer with black pieces. By adding different accessories or trying the different materials or cuts of the blazer, we can achieve totally different styles.

Today, in our part 2 of white blazer series, I want to share with you how to rock white blazers with colorful or interest and fun pieces: from stripes and prints, from solid colors to romantic floral, from shorts to skirt, from leather to denim…There are so many lessons we need to learn.

Lesson 1 is from Miranda Kerr and Michelle Williams. Both of them were using the same style “formula”(I hate to use the word “formula” or “rule” when it comes to fashion, my only rule is looking good,having fun.

The white blazer can turn down the intense contrasts, also add a crisp touch to the outfit.

Oh, white! There are so much to say about it that I don’t even know where to start. No doubt that it’s a perfect color for spring and summer. But since someone raised this question last fall: “why can’t we wear white after labor day?”  Then white finally be worn the year round-which greatly satisfied “white” fans like me.

I have a tiny frame and an “Asian face” which make me look much better and “visible” in white than in black, especially in white tops, they can instantly correct lighten my skin tone. Wearing them as I was holding reflector for myself. So, the first-class members in my  wardrobe are white blazers and button downs.

Let’s start from white blazers. They can add polish to any outfit, and give you the fresh, crisp, effortlessly chic look you need in spring and summer. When it comes to pairing them, there are millions of ways. Today I want to focus on my favorite way-pairing white blazers with black pieces.

I know, this combo is so classic. By trying different materials, details or cuts, and combined with different accessories, this classic combination can be luxury or easy-breezy, edgy or sweet, polish or laid back…You name it. Let take a look at these stylish ladies:
