Introduction

Admittedly, I am not the best at focusing on wardrobe staples. You know me… always opting for color and pattern and boldness over basic and neutral. However, the power of a closet is multiplied by the presence of classic, versatile pieces, and classic pieces like simple dresses, blazers, leather jackets, pencil skirts, and such are the building blocks of a closet. Continuing the blazer theme that I started on Monday, allow me to focus on why you should own a white blazer.

Actually, after buying and wearing the Rag & Bone blazer from Monday’s article, I was re-inspired to wear blazers. I used to wear suiting quite a bit when working in the corporate world, so had grown a bit tired of blazers. I associated them with office outfits. But fashionistas like my blogger friend Erica make them look so cool.

With this renewed interest in blazers, I looked in my closet and grabbed a Theory white blazer that I had owned for 5+ years. However, I found my blazer had some staining on it that had gone undetected by me before. Sadly, try as I might, I was unable to remove the staining from the blazer. While I was sad, I also knew I had certainly gotten my use from this staple piece of clothing over the years.

Since I had been so happy with my first Theory white blazer, I decided that I would just purchase Theory’s newest version of the white blazer. For the price point, Theory delivers such great quality basics. Since purchasing the blazer a month or so ago, I have already gotten so much use out of it!

6 Reasons Why You Should Own A White Blazer

Given that we are half way through the summer, you may question my recommending white blazers at this point. But here are 6 reasons I still think you should consider adding a white blazer to your closet

  1. A white blazer is such a wardrobe staple.
    • You’ll wear it year after year. It really is a closet classic.
  2. Many of these blazers are already on sale!
    • Great timeless pieces on sale? Yes, please.
  3. Wearing white is not just a summer thing.
    • You can definitely wear a white blazer past the summer months.
    • In fact, I’ll share some ideas to help you transition the blazer to fall.
  4. A white blazer instantly adds polish to even the most casual outfit.
    • The crisp tailored look of a white blazer is always in style.
  5. A white blazer is the perfect layering piece for summer.
    • It will stylishly protect you from frigid indoor temperatures in restaurants and stores.
  6. A white blazer offers the ultimate in versatility.
    • Off the top of my head, I can think of three ways I’ve styled this jacket recently:
      1. As shown here with a tank, jeans, and heels.
      2. Over a summer dress
      3. With denim shorts and sneakers

So, have I convinced you of your need for a white blazer? I do hope you’ll consider. Happy shopping!

Side note: don’t miss this wonderful sequined tank… From J.Crew’s elevated ‘Collection’ label, the high-quality piece is a bargain at $100. I look forward to styling this piece multiple ways. Besides the pink and peach color combo, it also comes in a navy and ivory stripe.

Thanks as always for visiting Wear + Where + Well. I hope your week is going well!

      Oh good, Carolyn!

      Yes, I have an older JCrew linen one that is great. But the crepe material of this Theory one is a bit dressier.

      Have a great day.
