I have often talked about the great versatility of white pants. But just as practical is a white jacket. Although I don’t wear it so often in Singapore (there simply is no need for jackets here), I tend to wear it a lot in almost every other climate whenever I’m on holiday.

How to wear a white jacket?

A white jacket looks great with a girly dress (as seen above; many more photos on this dress on Monday).

It looks equally good on a long straighter skirt as well.

A white blazer jacket is good too. It’s a little less versatile as a white jeans jacket but you can wear it in a formal way or casual as shown below.

I find my white jeans jacket more versatile for holidays though as I can wear that with just about anything.

During this holiday I have worn it with:

  • My blue and white jeans
  • Blue pants
  • Pink shorts
  • Both my white and black leggings
  • My purple and pink dress
  • My red skirt

My white jacket was never far from my side and together with my hat has proven to be the most worn item of all the clothes I took on holiday.

Do you have a white jacket in your wardrobe yet?

Together with my white jeans I find my white jacket an essential part of my wardrobe and this particular jacket has already lasted me for years. It always makes the cut whenever I go on holiday outside of Asia.

Here are some examples of great white jackets currently available online. Use as inspiration or happy shopping!
