Wardrobe Essentials: The White Blazer
Very often I get asked my are my ‘Wardrobe Essentials’; What few items would I suggest every woman has in their wardrobe? I think it really depends on the season, I always suggest a great fitting back blazer but as we go further into Spring and approach summer, a white (or off white or cream) blazer is a brilliant wardrobe staple and so so versatile!
They’re also a timeless investment that simply won’t date. I have two from last year that’ll be wearing again this season – A longer length one from Zara and a cropped version from Topshop.
I entitled this post ‘The White Blazer’ for handiness shake, but it doesn’t have to specifically be white, any kind of white/ off white/ ivory or cream will work and will be easy to match across your wardrobe.

How to Wear….. A White Blazer
A white blazer is gorgeous worn with jeans, over black trousers, with printed or floral trousers or over dresses and skirts. Before long you’ll notice your white blazer fast becoming your ‘Go To’ piece in your wardrobe, it’s just so easy to slip on over almost anything, even occasion wear. I wore my cropped white blazer so much last summer, for example I wore it with a neon lime dress to Punchestown Races, I wore it with a floral pencil skirt and then I wore my other one (Slightly longer and from Zara) I wore so much with skinny jeans, with my navy and pink floral trousers, over dresses and with my black & white jumpsuit! Here’s a little outfit I styled using the Topshop white blazer.
