Fashion: White Jacket Love Affair

Emma Yardley finds the perfect versatile piece for your wardrobe

When building a stylish, year-round wardrobe, versatility is the name of the game — and a crisp, white blazer is the ultimate seasonal chameleon.

During the summer months, it’s the perfect, light-reflecting layer to wear over a cocktail dress at a garden wedding.

Come fall, combine this slim-fitting jacket with more masculine, tailored pieces, like a pair of cropped, black trousers and an oversized boyfriend sweater, à la Katharine Hepburn.

Sure, you might have to keep a Tide to Go stick handy, but the potential hassle is totally worth the style payoff.

Emma’s journey as a style writer has taken her from the gumboots and Gore-Tex of Island living to the glitz and glamour of Toronto’s fashion scene. She brings her eagle eye for trends and her wry sense of humour to some of Canada’s biggest publications, where she always tries to keep fashion fun.
