A white blazer is a Must-have
I really love my short sleeve linen white blazer and wore it a lot this summer. It’s so versatile. The short sleeve white blazer looks great with a striped top for a casual look, but also great with leather shorts for work as a “fake” summer suit on Casual Friday. A white blazer is so versatile that I bought this long sleeve white wool blazer for winter.
Workhorse or doubling up?
Is this doubling the same item? Certainly not. The short sleeve one was a workhorse in summer. Thus, the new one is its winter equivalent.

How to style a white blazer in winter
This post is this blazer’s premiere. 😉 I paired it with my favorite black leather pants, booties, a denim shirt, and pearls for a Casual Friday outfit.

You can’t go wrong with this neutral color combination. For the daring try to go for a modern, chic black and brown combination. Check the guide at the link for styling tips.
Take inspirations from Style Icons
Of course, a white blazer and black slacks look great together. But so much better do trousers in leather when your work dress code permits wearing it. Queen Letizia of Spain once wore her black skinny leather trousers with a long sleeveless double-breasted white blazer and sky-high pointy-toe heels as she visited a science museum in Madrid.
When it is good enough for a Queen, it's good enough for me. #leatherpants #whiteblazer Click To Tweet
To finish the look add a statement belt and a string of pearls.

Match your outerwear for great style
When styling outerwear the number 1 thing you have to consider is what of your outfit is showing when you put your coat on. The coat, what shows and the accessories together must make sense and look put together. Never forget that the first impression is important! Thus, also pay attention to your outerwear and style it as well. Clothing conveys a message. You never know whom you may meet the first time or to whom you may be introduced in the elevator when you are wearing your outwear on your way to or from the office.
Pro tip: On your way to work wear professionally looking pieces too.Style your outerwear. It's an outfit too. #agelessstyle Click To Tweet
On my way to work, I wore my olive motorcycle coat with a gray, white, black Chevron striped cashmere scarf and black leather gloves, i.e. I stayed with neutral colors.
