black or white blazer

(Cameron loves her cool black blazer with leather trim!)

Today I’ve been thinking about investing in a great blazer for the summer. Last summer it was all about the white blazer – with jeans, shift dresses, and even to dress up a cute short. Taking a cue from last season I think it’s imperative to make a new addition to my wardrobe, but the problem comes when I consider the black blazer.

On the one hand I do love some white, but I do live in New York and while black matches at least more than half of my wardrobe I won’t be taking it to the dry cleaners nearly as much as I would be with a white blazer. I found two cute ones, both at Intermix, one black and the other white. I’m weighing the pros and cons, but I definitely could use some weigh in from my fabulous fashion dish readers on this particular fashion conundrum. I’d love to hear what you all think and which piece you’ll be adding to your wardrobe this season

Here’s to the blazer debate, xo
