Hey SITS-tahs! I’m ecstatic to be here today with you all, spilling the beans about one of my best wardrobe secrets.

My husband and I travel… A LOT.  Whether its business or pleasure, I’d say we take an average of 5 major trips a year. Each trip is usually somewhere different, and could be in a cold or warm climate. So this leaves me needing a wardrobe that is pretty versatile. I have to forget “packing,” winter and summer clothes away at home during the off seasons, because I need them, ALL year round.

If I can give you one piece of advice of something to have in your wardrobe, for EVERY day life, and your traveling life, let it be this: The White Jacket

What is our one must have spring fashion item? The White Jacket. It is a wardrobe essential that really can be worn all year.

Wardrobe Necessity: The White Jacket

You guys… this is my FAVE-O-RITE piece of clothing in my wardrobe.

Why do I love my white jacket?

  • It can be dressed, “up,” or dressed, “down.”
  • I throw this on over a t-shirt, for a quick daily outing to the grocery store, to dress up, my frumpy look.

My favorite fashion tip: dress up your jeans and t-shirt with a simple white jacket. This is great for your spring wardrobe, but I wear it all year.

  • I can put this jacket on, and I’m all set for a business meeting that I’m attending. So it’s an excellent staple for office/business attire.
  • It’s PERFECT for those spring days when you’re not sure if it’s going to be warm/cool while you’re out. {At least in Missouri where I live, that’s the case.}
  • I wear a jacket when I’m going out at night, whether it be for dinner date with hubby, or a night out with the girls. It dresses up my look, and it’s not too heavy, so I won’t get tired of wearing it.
  • Travel. I always make sure this is in my suitcase, because no matter where I go, even if it’s the hottest day in the Caribbean, I can almost bet I will wish I had a jacket in that cold restaurant that I go to.
  • White. White goes with everything. Really.

I could probably go on and on with reasons I love having a white jacket in my closet. But I think that’s enough to prove my case. Right? I’ll just say this…

A good white jacket is completely versatile, and I’ll never be without one.

The white jacket is a wardrobe essential. I always have one in my closet or suitcase.

What is something in your wardrobe that you’d never be without? Heels? Oh gosh, me too! Don’t even get me started. But what else do you love?  Let me know in the comments below.
