Today’s featured item is the most requested one in our “Back to Basics” series: the white blazer. There is no need to say more about how essential it is, so let’s go directly to our “style class”.
As a basic and staple piece, there are countless ways to wear a white blazer (check out related post here & here, you can always search “white blazer” at my home page for more inspirations), today I want to share with you two of my favorites this season:
First one is an all-white look from Laura Whitmore. Head-to-toe white is right on trend now, and I love how she used black accessories to play with the black/white trend as well, resulting a fresh, modern, high-impact ensemble.
Like we shared here, for simple color palette like this, details really matters: her artful layering necklaces add a whimsical & luxe touch, sheer blouse and pointy-toe pumps infuse sexiness, while distressed jeans grounding the polished vibe.
Esther Adams’s retro chic pairing is definitely what I would wear now since the whole fashion world is turning back for inspirations. High-waisted wide-leg jeans teamed with platforms are leg-elongating. Striped top and vintage looking brown crossbody bag enhance the overall retro vibe. Choose a cropped blazer if you are not as tall as Esther Adams.
Both looks are great for women of any age (for 40s and above, change Laura Whitmore’s distressed jeans to a basic white one or straight leg version for a more polished look). Also, for those of you who want to add some cheerful spring color, these are very similar outfits featured on Miranda Kerr & Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for you!
