How to Wear a White Blazer

July 31, 2019

It’s no secret that I have become a fan of blazers. Even though the only office I report to is in my own home, I still appreciate the classic lines and fitted silhouette of these trending jackets. And with a lightweight white blazer in my closet, I’ve been able to wear one spring through summer.

Today I’m sharing all the ways to wear a white blazer during spring and summer. Plus, I’ve handpicked some beautiful selections of these classic toppers for you to shop. And most of them are marked down, waaaay down!

with Dark Wash Denim + Dark Print Shirt

First up, one of my favorite ways to wear a white blazer is simply to pair it with dark wash denim jeans and a colorful print shirt. The white frame of the blazer accentuates the dark, colorful print in this lightweight button up shirt.

Summer Style Tip – Stay cool as a cucumber by selecting a lightweight breathable fabric for both the shirt and your jacket. This shirt is a very thin cotton and the blazer is linen.

Summer Style Tip – For an added “cool factor,” cuff both the shirt and the blazer sleeves, exposing more of the color of the shirt.

Flip the collar of the shirt up in the back and let the wing tips of the shirt collar frame your face. You can tuck or not tuck the shirt, but the untucked look is a little more edgy and casual.

Is there really any better way to wear a white blazer than with jeans? I think it’s my favorite! So I’ve done it again with lighter wash jeans. And this time I chose distressed denim.

Summer Style Tip – You don’t have to put your arms in the sleeves to get the added benefit of a blazer. Wear it over your shoulders for a cooler fit and an upscaled look.

with a fun t-shirt, distressed jeans + sneakers

You can go even more casual with your white jacket by layering it over a fun t-shirt.

Summer Style Tip – Keep the look intentionally casual by wearing white fashion sneakers. Yes! You are cool enough for this!

with white jeans + pastel top

Next, I topped white jeans with my white linen blazer. I kept the look soft and chic with a pale pink linen tee, coordinating pink shoes and shoulder bag and chunky gold jewelry.

Summer Style Tip – You’ll look cooler in your white blazer if you keep the overall look soft and light. Consider putting your white blazer over white jeans and any pastel tee or top. Finish with neutral or coordinating accessories.

with white slacks + single color shirt

It may feel risky, but you absolutely can wear your white blazer over white dress slacks. And, no! They do not have to be the exact same shade of white. In fact, a touch of difference in shade adds texture and interest to your look.

Summer Style Tip – Shoe choices with your white blazer are varied, but you can bet that nude heels, sandals or flats will generally complete the look well.

with a standout sheath dress

When it comes to pairing a blazer with a dress, it’s probably easiest to wear it with a simple sheath dress. The no fuss, no muss silhouette of this classic dress presents an easy bottom layer for a structure or looser fit jacket.

Summer Style Tip – Whenever possible choose a sleeveless top or dress to go under your blazer. Think cool!!

with a Fit & Flare Cotton Dress

But you absolutely can wear your white blazer with dresses that have other silhouettes. I wore my white blazer over this navy polka dot poplin shirt dress with a fit and flare silhouette when my husband preached in view of a call at our new church.

Summer Style Tip – Try your white blazer on with everything!! You never know. More than likely, your white blazer will work with most everything in your closet.

with Bermuda length seersucker shorts

“But I mostly wear shorts in the summer,” you say. “Can you even wear your white blazer with shorts?” You betcha!

I paired my white linen blazer with my Bermuda length seersucker shorts for church one Sunday. (We’ve been at a very casual church!) I kept the look oh so cool by simply wearing a v-neck white t-shirt underneath.

Summer Style Tip – Don’t be afraid to pair your solid white blazer with a solid white tee. Perfection! Or you could wear a white tee with a fun graphic on it, too.

with white shorts + animal print

I love, love, love the endless possibilities of pairing your white blazer with animal prints. Whether you choose zebra, giraffe, leopard or snake print to peek through your white jacket, you’ll look oh so chic!

Your animal print will shine even more if you wear it over white bottoms, like these simple, dressy white shorts (now less than $20!).

Summer Style Tip – Use gold and neutral accessories to pull together your white and animal print combination, elevating the look even more but also letting the animal print steal the show.

Blessed for My Day

What does it mean to “walk with God?” That’s a question worth answering because when we walk with God we have the constant benefit of His presence and favor.

Noah walked with God. Think about Noah’s life. He chose God’s way when the voices of the people around him mocked him for his choice and obedience. Noah obeyed God…to the tee. And that obedience began with belief. Noah took God at His word. We, too, can walk with God is we simply take Him at His word, believe Him and obey. But the difficulty comes when the voices of our culture try to tempt us away from what we know to be trustworthy. Let’s choose to walk with God today.

But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord. These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his generation. Noah walked with God. ~ Genesis 6:8-9

Spread the love
