For those readers who work in a corporate environment, we bet donning a blazer seven days a week can get super boring. Sure there’s double breasted, single breasted, 3/4 sleeve, big lapel, small lapel…the list goes on but at the end of the day it’s still a blazer. And since most suits we see on the street are of the black, grey and navy variety so we thought we might suggest spicing it up with a white tuxedo blazer in lieu of the usual dark neutral. As seen on the Fall/Winter 2011 runway at Jason Wu and Stella McCartney, the white tuxedo blazer isn’t just for hot summer nights or swanky holiday parties – it can actually be incorporated into your everyday autumn wardrobe, if worn correctly. Take for example, model Candice Swanepoel who took menswear-inspired suiting to a new extreme when she stepped out in a full white slim fitting tuxedo style suit. Head to toe white looked great on Candice on the red carpet but it may not be the best option for a day at the office. Instead take a page out of Anne Hathaway’s style agenda and pair your new white tuxedo blazer with a pair of black pants that you already have hanging in your closet. Or layer it over a shift dress and pointy toe pumps for another take on the trend.
