The White Blazer is a summer staple, and it’s one that I have been searching for since late spring. My poor friend and colleague had to sit through many a discussion regarding the perfect fit (lapels, waist, arm length, exact shade of white – you name it, we discussed it) until, finally, I discovered this one in the Zara sale. (Isn’t that just the best feeling? Scoring a can’t-live-without piece in the sale?)
Although I am dreading the day of the grubby collar/ketchup stain, I’ve worn The White Blazer a few times already. It’s a great piece for dressing up a simple pair of blue jeans (as seen here ahead of The Open last weekend), or for adding a sharper edge to office wear. The White Blazer also doubles up as evening wear, worn cape-like over the shoulders with either a jumpsuit or LBD, so it really is a must-have this season. Have you got yours?
I’m Wearing: blazer, Zara; top, Oasis; jeans, Debenhams; clutch, TK MAXX; shoes, Next; diamond necklace, a wedding gift from le husband, with vintage key; rings, various including Monica Vinader; sunglasses, Dolce & Gabbana.
