I created some business casual outfits where my white blazer adds an element of “profesh.” You may be thinking, how often can I even wear a white blazer? I initially thought the same thing. White is very versatile though, and it’s great for the spring/summer season.
There are many types of blazers, and this style is called “The Notch.” It’s considered the classic blazer style, and it has small indents on the collar. This one is from Ann Taylor, and I found a similar one on sale at Loft.
I like that the pineapple pattern on my pants is very subtle, yet it makes a statement. The white top paired with the white blazer brings a light, summer feel to the outfit. If you’re choosing a patterned pant, you want to make sure you choose a colored top that compliments the pants. You could pair these navy pants with a brighter color such as peach or mustard since the pants are dark. I chose white to keep it classic and clean. Here are more tips on how to wear patterned pants and why they are appropriate for the workplace.
Pencil skirts are a classic office favorite to pair with a blazer. I chose one with a floral pattern because floral for spring is groundbreaking, right? Haha. If you choose to wear a skirt it doesn’t have to be floral, but I recommend wearing a pattern that compliments the color of your top. I like the way the burgundy top pairs with the skirt as well as how the burgundy top contrasts the white blazer.
The warm pink tones are subtle enough to be appropriate for the workplace since they add a pop of color. I found a floral skirt from Nordstrom that’s a little brighter than what I’m wearing, but it’s nice option for the springtime.
If you’re someone who doesn’t like pants, and you want a quick “one-and-done” outfit, a dress is the perfect option. Unlike an outfit with a pencil skirt or pants, you don’t have to think of pairing two items of clothing together. Wearing a dress with a blazer can save you some time. Here are some guidelines on how you should wear a dress and a blazer to the workplace as an alternative to a suit.

Stay profesh my friends,
