Today's Everyday Fashion: Miami Vice






































When I see a white blazer, I can't help but think of Miami Vice. I've never seen the show, but I do know that a guy named Don Johnson wore one all the time. Over the past year I've been seeing them everywhere and they always look so chic though! I spotted this one on MJR Sales for a great price so I decided to give it a try and I already love it! I think that worn the right way a white blazer can be chic, not cheesy. Tell me - are you a fan of white blazers? Do you think they are cheesy or chic?

  1. I love a crisp, clean white blazer. I got one on sale at NY&Co. several years ago, and I wear it all the time to work. Lookin' good, J!

  3. I have a white blazer but I rarely wear it because it doesn't fit quite right. Maybe I need to find a good tailor and have it altered!

  4. I love white blazers. I got one on super-clearance last year at Ann Taylor and I really like wearing it. I love the gray underneath - that's how I wear mine a lot of the time.

  5. Hi, I was wondering if you can post how you shop. I mean, I know what's in my closet but I go to the mall and I completely forget. I see a shirt that I like. I buy it and then I never wear it because I (1) either have nothing to style it with or (2) never find something that goes with it. Do you make a list? How do you decide what to buy? I have a mental list of the outfit that I would love to buy but then I go blank once I hit the stores.
    Thanks!!

  8. love this fit. This is the kind of go-to outfit that I do.. I have a long black boyfriend blazer, with a white T or gray, ripped skinnies cuffed and some nice black heels. I saw a white blazer at metropark that I'm wanting to invest in soon :-0

  9. LOVE it! I saw one at Express I wanted to buy but didnt want to shell out the big bucks for it! I'm definitely going to check out some of these other places for one though.

  10. Ooooh I need a white blazer in my life, like, yesterday. Love this look. Cool & casual.

  11. Chic! I love white blazers - they're essential for any spring/summer wardrobe. Great look!

  12. Blazers are definitely all about the fit. I would take it to a tailor to see how expensive it would be, then decide whether it's cheaper to just buy a new one altogether, or have it altered!

  13. Can you post a picture your closet?? My closet is so small that I have a hard time seeing everything and therefore come down with the "I have nothing to wear syndrome"....

  14. Nina, great questions. Have you tried writing the list down? I totally understand the excitement of when you get in a store - you start looking at everything vs. looking for the things you originally came in for. About 1), I use inspiration photos to give me ideas and new ways to style things. I also often use inspiration to come up with my shopping list - I'll see tons of cute looks with white blazers, so I'll add that to my list, which can then take a few months to find it, but it's on the list. Also, I've been doing posts on my budget each month and how I decide what to buy that might be helpful. They are posted under "Favorite Posts and Videos" in the upper right corner, check it out!

  15. Nice! I broke out my white blazer today as well! I think if you pair it with the right looks it is a crisp look to wear. I bought my white blazer about 2 years ago and have never worn it until today. I like how you paired yours with ripped jeans and the gray tee!

  16. I have a hard time wearing a white blazer because I find them too...doctor's lab coat...for my liking. I think I need a little cropped one like this and that might solve my doctor's coat dilemma :)

  18. First time commenter here! I have been reading though for like 3 or 4 months and I thought I should not be a weird stalker anymore. Well maybe once I entered a giveaway or something. I love this outfit, but I really love the white blazer. I think its a must have for spring.

    This is smokin' hot!! Miami Vice was from my teenage years and all the boys wore white or light colored blazers with skinny little ties to all the dances. lol

  22. I have an off-white blazer that I adore, but every time I put it on, I can't seem to make it work. I really like today's outfit though, so I might mimic it this weekend! =)

  23. Yes! I love a white blazer. I have a fitted one and a boyfriend one. They are a great layering option in warmer weather when it is crazy hot outside, but air conditioned to polar temps inside! Now, cheesy would be a guy in a white blazer. Don't get me wrong, Don Johnson was pretty hot in his back in the day, but not so much anymore. :)

  24. That white blazer looks great on you! I am not really a blazer person - I just don't like the way they look on me...but I LOVE Miami Vice! haha. I bought my boyfriend all the DVDs for Christmas last year. We are almost through watching all of them. He watched the show when he was little and apparently would yell "Kinis!" (aka: bikinis) whenever he would hear the theme music - I was too young so I had never seen it until recently. But I totally enjoy it now. Watching the 80s fashion is so fun. Plus, like CC said, Don Johnson was totally hot back in the day!

    Gina, it was probably about 3 weeks ago that I ordered it. The site works like eBay so listings are for one item only. I was on the site this morning though and it looked like they still had a few white blazers left!

  32. sadly, I am not to young to have lived the Miami Vice look back in the day.
    I got a white blazer at a clothing swap not too long ago, but have yet to bring it out to wear
    I might have to go pull that bad boy out now and give it a go

  34. Hello,

    I as well as many others have become addicted to your blog! Your look is so stylish! It kinda reminds me of myself. You have actually inspired me to try to find time to update and rework my "so called" fashion blog. I actually wear white all year long! It is so crisp and clean! I wore an outfit similar to yours last weekend for brunch. I wore a white blazer, a graphic tee, distressed denim (cuffed), with ankle peep toe booties. Loved it! I got many compliments. Thanks so much. I teach, but work part time at The Limited, thanks for representing our store to the fullest!

    Take Care,

    Peace, Love, and Fashion!

    Kyra C.
