The one IT piece this holiday season

Did you guess it yet?... The white blazer.

Dress it up with all black errthang or dress it down with jeans, it is a must have item in your wardrobe.

Ways to dress up your White blazer

Wear it as a dress

Wear it with a sequin skirt

Wear it as a low cut top

Wear it with all black


For more semi casual looks like brunching with the girls or a casual business meeting, my favourite ways to wear the white blazer are

With light coloured denim (for a more casual look)

Or dark coloured denim for a business meeting

Or in the summer, shorts and cowboy boots will slay any white blazer

I have several white blazers, an unstructured one which serves me well with both casual and more dressy outings. Below I was on holiday and on my way to dinner, light enough not to boil but enough to keep me warm in an air conditioned restaurant

I also have a Tuxedo-like white blazer which honestly is my most used, it dresses up the modest jeans and t-shirt outfit very well. The tuxedo blazer can go from casual to dressy in one swipe. Check out my wedding guest outfit below

Finally my structured white blazer which I use quite often always makes a statement. It tells people that you have style and you are not afraid to show it.

Monochrome has been something I frequently wear recently, with the outfit below, I wanted it bold with shapes and textures. The white hat finished the outfit nicely.

My first rule of clothes shopping

If I cannot wear you to work, I ain't buying you. The end.  We all work five days a week, 52 weeks and 365 days a year (or is that just me). Sometimes I find myself working 14 days straight with my regular 9-5 and then photography at the weekends. So, I work so much, the hustle is very real (currently on the train where I put my phone down just to do the Jay-z hova gang sign, don't judge me woman with the pink fur in summer).  So in that light, when I go shopping, there is absolutely no need to buy anything I cannot wear to work, be it my government work or my own business. I buy pretty things that I can dress down one day but definitely dress up to go to parties (children's birthday parties and Christenings it seems to always be). So that is rule number "wan".  How does she dress things up I hear you say. Simply with your shoes, bags and accessories. You won't believe how good that "dead dress" will look when you spruce it up a little bit. I tell myself I will never wear it same way I wear it to work so for a dress I will usually add a statement belt and then knock my heels. For a pencil skirt that I usually wear with an oxford shirt to work, I swap the shirt for a cami or embellished top. That is rule number two: Never wear stuff same way you will wear it it work (before the dress takes you to the office on a Sunday morning, you won't know).  This look I am about the show you was an outfit I wore to my God daughters christening, a lovely addition of God kids that I am currently guiding with my infinite wisdom and understanding (if you like roll your eyes, I can't see from here). Please you guys check out my blogger poses, especially the ones that I look far away to the horizon lol. If you have learnt anything from my deep deep understanding of fashion rules, please comment and I will send you a copy of my e-book "Style tips for ex-fashion convicts", we don't judge, we are here to help. Lol                         These are some of my must haves for a chic work wardrobe.  As for blazers, the collarless classic white blazer is always a winner, it will go with anything and paired with a white high waisted jeans and heels, boom you are ready to partay. I also love these cape blazers and can't get enough of them, the more structured the better.     When we talk about tops/ blouses, I quite like the wrap stripped shirt. It can be paired with any of the above blazers and for a party look with high waisted trousers and a statement belt. Tah-dah. An embellished top is also a must have.    These paper bag trousers (muahhh... Come to mama soon ok?) and the pink ankle grazers I love. Don't be afraid of colour guys, rock it.     Last but not the least (I never understood that phrase by the way) but here we go. Skirts, my absolute fav. A stripe and flowery pencil skirt is all you need I promise you. They are heaven sent. The horizontal striped skirt seemed more chic to me than the vertical.     That's all folks, until next week when you all see me on the cover of Forbes  magazine standing next to Oprah and the Queen.
