Minimalism must have: The white jacket

I'm a devotee of minimalism and find it hard to go past a white or ecru jacket. I know what you're thinking...  You're having visions of a waiter right?  I have to admit, I always used to get stuck on that point of reference.  I equated a white jacket to hired help and so avoided owning one for sometime. These days I can't get enough of them.  I'm even looking to add another to my closet.   You'll see why I'm obsessed in the next week... I promise an outfit post is on the way.

In the mean time, here are six white/ecru jackets that I've had major crushes on throughout the season that I thought I would encourage other devotees with. There are other white/ecru jacket devotees aren't there?  This could be awkward... Well anyway this is my 'wish list' which I'm trying to wither down so there is just one survivor that will ultimately join my wardrobe.  Plus I've been waiting for the sales to purchase one and it's finally that time of year again. Woo hoo!

The top middle jacket is a gorgeous cut but with the tails, I'm still thinking 'waiter'.  Realistically it's between three. Jacket one and three from the top row, and jacket three from the bottom.  I think those three are the most versatile jackets (for my wardrobe) and they are more of a ecru colour which I find less stark.  Which are your preferences?  Do you have any items on your wish list that you've been patiently waiting for the sales to finally buy?

  2. I really like jacket 3 on the top line! :)

    All of them look good though :) I worry I may spill something when I wear white, I'm so clumsy!

  3. I was never into white but lately, it's all I can think about. I guess the sun must have something to it. Love these white jackets. One day I might pluck enough courage to wear one but will avoid food like the plague

  5. Count me in as a devotee! :) I think I like the Sandro jacket the most. Oh boy, do I have a wishlist. Unfortunately, the items I want will most likely not go on sale. I've been wanting Helmut Lang stretch leather leggings and a pair of Pigalles for quite some time now. So I truly hope I can restrain myself during the sales period. Fingers crossed I'll behave. xx Kayin

    1. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one with a huge list! A few of my friends are hanging out for the Helmut Lang stretch leather leggings. They are beautiful! Maybe the Pigalles will happen for you when you go to Paris :) There's nothing better than buying something special on holidays. xx

  7. I'm glad to see I'm not alone and there are other devotees. Funny thing is, I only drop things on dark items!

    1. Ah yes the Carven. So nice! Interesting cut.

      The weather here is cold unfortunately which is difficult since most the blogs I read are the other side of the world and starting or getting sunshine! At least it's not raining here at the moment though. I suffer the same humidity issue as you. Never fun!

      I hope you've done well with the sales... Why are they always so good!

  12. Ahh loving the white blazer, but it's tough to find the right shape! I'm loving the top left blazer, though the McQueen one is also dope.
