Trend Alert: White Blazers

A white blazer is a summer wardrobe staple. Tuck your black versions to the back of the closet (for now), and look cool and chic in blanc. With design details such as sequins, pinstripes, ruched sleeves, and oversize buttons, the options aren’t basic, that’s for sure.

And there are so many (practical) reasons to invest in a white blazer! Its perfect for layering, especially when the temps start to drop at night. In comparison to black, it lightens up your overall aesthetic (and isn’t that what summer fun dressing is all about?). It’s also versatile. You can wear it to work with a pencil skirt, to an afternoon wine tasting or bridal shower with a summer dress, or with short shorts to a girls’ night out. And a white blazer instantly dresses up a casual look. Take Meghan Markle for example, who recently wore one over a black top and blue jeans with a pair of black pumps to Wimbledon, and looked royally (pun intended) polished.

Any of these five white blazers (one is even on sale!) would be a deserving addition to your wardrobe:
