Ask Belle: White Blazers for Any Season

Aug 5, 2014

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.

-Joey

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.

    YES! I too have recently decided I need a white blazer in my life. This post is super helpful!

    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.

The Crowdstrike/Microsoft Meltdown forced me to take a few days off this weekend. No laptop. No billable hours. So we packed Sloane up for a visit to a local llama farm, stopped by the pool, went for coffee, etc. Few things are as funny as watching a 23-month old feed carrots to a ravenous rescue […]

Yes, it’s July 22nd, but there is a lot of living to do between now and the cooler weather. And given that three-digit temperatures are becoming shockingly common, you need something light. Enter the striped linen set. Wear it now, wear it next summer.

Styling White for Fall and Winter

A white or cream business suit is a great choice in the summer, but who needs to spend hundreds of dollars on a suit that they can only wear three months of the year? Here’s how to restyle your white or cream suit for fall/winter. Cream Suits vs. White Suits // For my money, a […]
