Wear Now And Later: A White Boyfriend Blazer For Evening Chicer Than A Tuxedo Jacket

The perfect boyfriend blazer, kinda like the one you actually stole from your boyfriend, but much much more flattering. Remember Theory’s video on cool ways to wear a blazer? Now we’ve got even more ideas.

Theory’s white blazer ($395) may seem demure, but it can be dressed up in a number of different fashion-forward ways.  The white blazer is a staple piece that will serve you well through all types of weather and will outlast short-lived seasonal trends. Celebs have been coming out of the woodwork in white blazers so there are myriad of inspirational ways to style this look.  Here are two of our favorites on two style icons that will work throughout the year.

For Now:

We know what you might be thinking: Kate Moss is a world famous super model, no way I can pull off leather shorts, but trust us, you can.  The soft blazer with rough leather shorts from Marc by Marc Jacobs ($428) are like ying and yang, they may be opposites, but they balance each other out.

It should come as no surprise that leather short shorts are a statement that need no added crazy accessories.  Stick with all black, like Kate, try a perfect-fit top by J.Crew (24.50) and leg-lengthening platform pumps on sale from BCBGeneration ($89.99).

For Later:

Sarah Jessica Parker can (almost) always do no wrong, and this feminine-masculine combination is no different.  Subtle girly detailing, like lace or flowers in a shade close to white alludes is sexy without throwing tons of skin in your face.  Make this Cynthia Steffe dress ($345) less cutesy with the loose boyfriend blazer.

SJP contrasts her light look with dark accessories in rough textures.  Ditch your usual evening clutch in favor of a more practical large leather handbag by Michael Michael Kors ($248).  A black multi-chain necklace pops against the white and cream look, and this necklace from By Malene Birger ($240) could also make a basic tank and skinny jeans outfit look hip.
