Item of the Week: The White Blazer

May 23, 2017

I had planned to launch a new feature called Tuesday Shoes-Day, today.  The trouble is that the Ann Taylor website is currently down.  So we’ll have to trudge through until it’s back up.  Because what good is it to post an awesome pair of shoes if no one can buy them?

I adore a white blazer.  It is my summertime office must-have.  I wear it over a striped top with jeans on casual Friday.  I pair it with any and all sheath dresses.  I love it with black for a classic look, but you can really wear it with any color.

This H&M Blazer comes in at a very affordable $55.  If you’re new to the white blazer game, this is where I would start, and then you can upgrade as needed.  This Calvin Klein one-button blazer is a great, well-made basic at a good price.  I also recommend this white blazer from Mango.

Looking for something with a bit more pop?  This flare-sleeve white blazer is a fun option.  This scallop-edge blazer from Draper James is cute.  I also like this tie-cuff blazer from Marks & Spencer.

Plus-size?  I am obsessed with this tie-front blazer.  For something simpler, I would go with this Tahari ASL blazer.  Petite?  Land’s End has several white blazers in stock.

Need advice on how to style your white blazer?  Check back on Thursday to see three ways to wear it.

    Hi, Abra–
    Have loved the evolution of the blog. I am petite and found this at Nordstrom. I’ve worn it several times and had compliments. I love the collar-less style.

    Hey, what happened to the post on three ways to wear it? I struggle to style my white blazer, so I was looking forward to that.

      I made one, and it looked just like the one I made two years ago. So, not great. I’m making another one, it’ll go up Monday. I think you’ll like it.

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.

Three Outfits I’ll Wear All Spring

When I started this blog, influencers still re-wore clothes. There were no haul videos filled with the latest from Shein before it winds up in a beach in Ghana poisoning the planet. There were no sponsored campaigns delivering fresh wardrobes each month. The content machine doesn’t like reruns.

The Find: Like a McCall’s Pattern

When I was young, my Mother used to bring me along when she would go shopping for fabric. As a result, I spent a lot of time, killing time, flipping through pattern books. So when I spotted this dress, I was instantly transported to the pattern table at a Jo-Ann Fabrics.
