White Out: 4 Ways to Wear White to the Office
This season, we’re ready for a wardrobe white out! From flowy dresses to sleek blazers, white can go with anything and everything in your closet—just think of it as your new summer neutral.
1. The White Blazer
If there’s one piece to mix into your usual office rotation, make sure it’s a white blazer. Whether you pair it with a bright blouse and cuffed pants (or jeans on Friday!) or throw it on over your favorite summer shift, a crisp blazer gives any outfit a sleek, polished feel. Blair’s outfit exudes confidence, which is exactly what we’re going for around the office, right? And don’t forget a pair of bright pumps—with a white blazer, you can definitely afford to pull off a pop of color elsewhere.
2. The White Blouse
Ahh—there’s nothing better than a simple white blouse. We love Blair’s polka-dotted version, but we think a plain, sheer one (thrown over a white tank) is perfect, too. To make a chic statement, pair your white blouse with cropped black pants, metallic accessories, and one printed piece. Trust us—you’ll look sophisticated, stay cool, and be ready for cocktails after dark, too.
3. The White Skirt
Who says we have to stop dressing in red, white, and blue after the 4th? We love Blair’s casual, preppy button-down paired with a white skirt and red flats. Add classic accessories and red lips to your look, and you’re all set to cruise to the lake for a long weekend, too.
4. The White Dress
Whether you’re sporting a maxi, a mid-length, or a (not-too-short) mini, a white flowy dress like Blair’s is an absolute must for summer. Just make sure to keep it from looking like the white dress by wearing simple, casual, and neutral accessories, and covering up those shoulders for work with a cardigan. Use your white dress as a blank canvas to throw on a sunflower-yellow sweater, or go a little punchier with neon hues .
