Following the popularity of my recent post about the best High Street Blazers, I’ve been asked a number of times which are the best Ladies White Jackets and Blazers online. Not surprising really as they are the perfect spring cover up for 2012.
So in time honoured tradition I set off on a trawl of the best online stores to bring you a guide to the best Ladies white blazers and jackets for 2012.
You can tell summer is on the way as many high street brands as well as designer labels currently have some really stylish White jackets in their range.
One of the most fashionable White Jackets I have seen is this cute, skinny fit, Galla Blazer from Firetrap. They are calling it an indoor blazer which basically means it’s not designed to keep you warm but you’ll be very comfortable wearing it indoors. However I think on a summer’s evening you can wear it in or outside. I love the military styling using epaulettes on the shoulders and the brass look buttons. Price £95.00.
Boyfriend Jackets or Blazers are perfect for throwing on over fitted clothing such as jeans, leggings etc. If your not sure what boyfriend blazers are they are basically loose fitting jackets that look like you may have borrowed it from your boyfriend. This Gestuz Boyfriend Jacket is made from silk and will add a touch of luxury to your wardrobe. Priced at £130.00 it’s one of the more expensive White Jackets around but this simple style won’t date and you’ll be able to wear it for many seasons to come. It’s available to buy from Flannels.
Tuxedo styling has become one of the hottest ladies jacket trends of 2012. Why not go all james bond and select a satin trim jacket like the one shown above from Freemans. As you can see from the picture it can be dressed down for a day time look but equally it will look so chic thrown over a little dress on a summer’s evening. It’s single breasted and features mock pockets. Priced at £55.00 this is a good value, all rounder jacket.
If your looking for a good quality ladies white jacket that isn’t going to date but looks modern then take a look at this Cass Cotton Jacket from French Connection. The styling is so simple it really leaves you with a blank canvas to style as you please. It’s perfect for the office but will equally look great with a pair of jeans on a weekend. I was rather disappointed to see that the French Connection website has now moved over to Euro pricing however. Price 175 euro.
Don’t be afraid to splash out on White Jackets as what ever you buy it will become a wardrobe staple. One of the great things about White is how versatile it is to wear and it will co-ordinate with much of your existing wardrobe. However if your accident prone like me it’s probably best to stick to more affordable styles that can be machine washed. This elegant silk blazer is by Adam and is available to buy online from Harrods. Priced at £335.00 it is expensive but if you look after it you will be wearing it for years to come.
Many of the Ladies White Jackets that I have featured in this best of guide have been very relaxed in style and whilst they can be worn for the evening as well as casual wear they aren’t very formal. If your looking for White Evening Jackets that are perfect for special occasions then I recommend looking at the Hobbs brand as they have a couple of stunning options. My personal favourite is this Hobbs Jolie Jacket pictured above. It’s a super cute, fitted design with a scoop neckline. It will look amazing on ladies with an hourglass figure and also petite Women. It’s piped with a black trim that really shows off the bow detail on the pockets. Price £199.00
Whilst putting this guide together I visited many different websites to find the best white jackets and I have to say the widest range I found to choose from was at John Lewis. They currently have 26 designs available to buy online. My personal favourite and the best value for money is this relaxed fit blazer by Mango. It features cropped sleeves for a really modern look. Priced at just £34.99 this blazer wins the award for the best ladies white jacket under £50.00. It’s fashionable, stylish and affordable.

Things To Consider When Shopping For Ladies White Jackets.
First of all think through how much you want to spend. If your shopping for a jacket that can be worn with many different outfits for years to come then it may be worth spending a bit more on jacket however if your shopping for one of the more high fashion designs it’s probably best to not splurge.
Also you may want to think about what shade of White you want to buy. Chances are you already have White clothing in your wardrobe hold a few garments up to see what shade suit you the most. Do you look better in bright white or something softer like pale ivory.
My final tip is make sure if you are buying a machine washable jacket, make sure you invest in a great stain remover. Wouldn’t be a nightmare to spill red wine all over your favourite new jacket.
