Every wardrobe requires a jacket that is both sharp and professional – a jacket that will be your saviour when post-work dinner plans arise. Enter the white blazer, the heroine of plenty an iconic fashion moment, from Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface to Bianca Jagger, the Mick Jagger years. On top of its iconography, power dressing and strong shoulders have been winning over the fashion pack season after season.

This wool double-breasted number from Saint Laurent encompasses all that is elegant about tailoring. With a precise lapel detail, a luxurious soft twill lining and slim fit, you’ll be the woman in white.

Drape your blazer over a Preen by Thornton Bregazzi red and cream speckled dress to up the print ante. The ruched waist and boxy blazer shape contrast nicely to ring in a rooftop-cocktail-night vibe. Do it dainty with accessories: middle part your hair beneath a Ca&Lou bow headband, then slip on pink Prada pumps to finish.

Elsewhere, keep things casual and cool in tone with this blazer-blue jean combination. Our pick of Paco Rabanne rolled-cuff denim is a perfect candidate for your off-duty closet, and even more so with a woven Anya Hindmarch bag in tow. Why not enter tie-dye territory? We suggest you pop on this lemon Mango tee for a dash of subtle pattern.

Meanwhile, you can double up on white by adding this & Other Stories soft cotton t-shirt below your blazer. For warmer days, satisfy any colour cravings thanks to MSGM who capture the tropics in their sun-pleated skirt. A brunch look wouldn’t be complete without a Shrimps bead handbag in muted blue – meaning you can carry your sunnies in style and use it as a chic prop for food flatlays.
