If we had to pick our favorite trend of the season, we’d definitely say “white blazers”. To us, they are absolute summer perfection and incredibly versatile. We love our white blazers for work, paired with a chambray shirt, skinny jeans and delicate jewelery. For a night out on the town we combine them with heels and black pants, and for a more casual look a shirt underneath, jean shorts and a fun statement necklace is all we need.
One of the many reasons we are such fans of the trend, is that this is a piece that simply works for everyone. Whether you like it girly, paired with a bit of pink and a floral pattern, or if you prefer an edgier look with leather pants, killer heels and lots of jewelry – it always works!
When shopping for a white blazer, be sure to go for something of good quality. You want a blazer that will keep its shape (ie. make sure the shoulder pads are sewn on well) and stays looking crispy and clean. Speaking of clean – white is always a difficult color, as even the tiniest smudge of make-up, a drop of coffee or bit of pollen from your fresh flowers will make a visible stain. So, make sure that the material can be washed easily and at around 40°C – we suggest staying away from pieces that are cold wash only, since stains are harder to remove. If you’re unsure of how to deal with a blazer in the wash you can always take it to the dry cleaners, but washing a blazer at home is actually much easier than you would expect.
