Ask Belle: White Blazers for Any Season

Hi Belle,

You always talk about white blazers, and you’ve finally convinced me to buy one.  It’s the end of summer and I want to find one for less than $100, definitely not more than $125.  I’d love some help finding the perfect one.


White blazers come in two types: classic and unique.  My advice is to buy a classic, and if you love it, buy something more stylish as well.

For a classic blazer, I like this Calvin Klein one-button blazer.  This Tommy Hilfiger blazer has a nice look to it.  Both would be considered classics for any season.  I also like this Jones New York white blazer that also comes in plus-sizes.  Tahari also makes a nice one-button blazer, but the gold clasp isn’t for everyone.


Asos Slim-Lapel Jacket ($87)

Want something a bit different?  This slim-lapel jacket has a modern look to it.  I also like this drapey blazer from Anthropologie with a ruched sleeve and inverted, notch collar (also comes in petite).

For something more unique, I found this Topshop blazer with a snakeskin texture.  And if you want a stylish evening jacket, this Walter blazer comes in off-white with black trim.  It would look lovely with a black lace top underneath.

    Any suggestions for a white blazer with a puff sleeve? I love the structured and dramatic look of a puff sleeve, and have been dying to find one. However, I keep coming up empty.

    If you wear it enough something will happen to it. Coffee drips you didn’t notice until it was too late, grease from a subway handrail, the proverbial glass of red wine… Buy a nice one, but don’t obsess. You’re likely to own several as the years go by.

    Amen to the above! A white blazer is fabulous. But will inevitably get stained. I highly recommend a nice Ponte knit version, which is super comfy AND machine washable.

    For plus size girls, you can currently get white blazers for less than $100 from Cynthia Rowley (TJ max online!), Avenue, or Lane Bryant.
