Pulling off a white blazer is tricky. Notice I said white blazer, not dinner jacket. The less formal the occasion the more difficult the look in this case. The goal here is avoiding attending a party and taking drink orders. Mistaken caterer is not a good look. This version from Valentino is a simple way to distinguish yourself as an actual invited guest. The difference here is a color, light cream, which actually adds a bit of texture that’s lost in true white. Valentino has really been stepping up their menswear game as of late. The most recent example was their spring/summer 2012 showing in Paris last month, which pointed the famous label in a colorfully youthful direction. Here’s your chance to get ahead of the curve.
