TheFind Guest Post: Summer Essential: The White Jacket

The final layer of summertime fashion has found its perfect answer in the form of this season's white blazers. Some are cut baggy and boy-friendy, but the best options are trim, tailored, and casual, giving the insouciant finishing touch on any summer outfit.



On the luxe end of the spectrum there's Elie Tahari's crisply-appointed Petra Jacket. The sharp lapels crafted from white linen create a stunning counterpoint against the dainty lace and ruching details on the sleeves.



For something more casual, Lucky Brand offers its Boyfriend Blazer with two jaunty patch pockets on the front and a dual-button closure. Lightweight and airy, this design has a weathered, lived-in look that makes it the perfect thing for cut-off shorts or your favorite pair of jeans.



Madewell's famous Cotton Garçon Jacket offers a sleek, shrunken silhouette that brings out the lady in everyone. Meanwhile, the flap pockets, notched lapel, and functioning 4-button sleeves are all borrowed from the haberdashery. Use this to dress up a strapless dress, or pair with a basic tank and a statement necklace for effortless impact. As the summer evenings move into fall, pair it with dark wash jeans to freshen up an old standby ensemble. Any way you want, the white blazer is the perfect top layer for every summer look!
