People ask me all the time, what are the key components to a Spring Capsule Wardrobe. With the warm ready officially started, it is warmer than Ibiza, in London today it is day to put your winter coat away and embrace the warmer weather.

A great white blazer, is one of my top choices to put on at this time of year and it just never goes out of fashion.

The fact that it reflects light onto your face and this singlehandedly takes years off anyone.

Buy dresses and skirts from the Highstreet but invest in a great white blazer. I know that Balmain is the Holy Grail but it is too ‘showy’ for me.  My dream buy would be one from  Barbara Bui or Gucci.  These are on my searches on all the Preloved Sites.

Other great brands to check out are Ralf Lauren, Smythe,  Theory, Zadig and Voltaire and Joseph, these  all know how to make great blazers, that are both superbly cut and comfortable to wear.

The Outnet is your best bet for a well priced designer one, they have one by Tara Mellon dramatically reduced at the moment.   Also check Preloved , Rebelle have a gorgeous one from Ralph Lauren , for £78, this would have cost hundreds new, as does the Burberry one from Vestiaire Collective  and  there is a great Kooples one on Ebay.

I  also love the Whistles one as well as the Zara 2016 version.

Paired with a cargo pants or jeans and a grey t-shirt, this look is timeless and suits everyone.  It is something I always have in my wardrobe and as soon as May hits, it gets taken out and I always get so many positive comments.

Go for off white, rather than cream and avoid belts, any adornment and  oversized lapels.  The one featured above is from Joseph and is years old and still looks pristine.

The White Blazer Edit

Try a white blazer with distressed denim, leather leggings or black jeans. I love the look below, it is exactly how I will be getting away with wearing my denim shorts in the city.
