What’s my trick for making any of my outfit pieces ready for spring and summer? The white blazer, y’all. It’s been my favorite piece to grab for years for something a little more chic than a jean jacket and more upscale than a hoodie.
My Go-To White Blazer: 2 Outfit Ideas For Spring & Summer
I’ve had a white knit version for years now (out of stock but this J.Crew sweater version is similar). But this year, I wanted to update things a little bit…by adding this lovely longer double-breasted ivory blazer from Madewell. It’s a light TENCEL fabric, perfect for this time of year, and not to mention it’s a sustainable choice.
Outfit 1 |Monochromatic With Light Denim & White Sneakers
Keep it light and cool this time of year by pairing the ivory blazer with a white tee and white sneakers. I love, love this look. I’ve worn it with joggers a ton of times too. Both work well for a pulled-together yet casual outfit.
These jeans are the AGOLDE Riley I’ve been crushing on recently! I love them in the wash Clear Skies (at Revolve | at Intermix | at AGOLDE.) I sized up to a 28 in them as I do most rigid denim. They’re snug but continue to soften as I wear them, AND they’re sustainably made. Hooray! They’re the perfect length on my 5’4″ frame. That’s a rare find, friends! But they would look cute cropped even more, too.
Outfit 2 | Add Contrast With A Black Tank & Mules
This combo adds a little contrast, but the fresh white jacket and light-wash denim still keep your black pieces looking springy. This is my trick for all-black outfits, too, for spring and summer. Pop on a white jacket, and voilà! You now have a brighter, sportier and chicer look!
This slightly cropped black WSLY tank is a recent upgrade for me, but it’s so good. The Vuori Plyo tank would also work well here. I never thought I’d dig a cropped tank, but now I GET IT. No tucking. And if you find the right one, no belly show either. I do feel the need to say rock a belly show if you feel like it though…you do you!
Shop More White Blazers
There are lots of great white blazers below in a variety of price points! I’m really digging the longer length of mine for an updated look, but I’ve also included a few shorter versions, too.
When I got my first white blazer years ago, I had no idea what a closet staple it would become for me but now it’s a signature piece. As we’re venturing out a little bit more to outdoor restaurants and backyard hangs with friends, I’m excited to be stepping it up a bit…back into outfits I love and ones with a white blazer are definitely that!
