    hey guys i just bought a satin effect blazer from zara. its nice and fitted, but when i tried it on with my white jeans, i noticed that the blazer was really quite off white, ivory or egg shell. i mean in looks very different.

    what do you guys think is cooler for this season, bright maritime white, or this kinda satiny off white!

    cheers

    Do you have a picture or link to a product page for it? Off-white is pretty tasteful if you ask me, I wouldn't worry about it.

    The off white will be a bit softer and more subdued, while the white will be louder. I don't think you should wear either with white jeans.

    Blazer and white are not synonimous.

    Blazer is, esentially, a navy blue double breasted jacket with special buttons.

    The white one you have is a jacket.

    Or a sportscoat, technically.

    Off-white is more versatile IMO. I would prefer it over the bright white.

    I'm wearing a light cream coloured one with very, very subtle pinstipes of white today (double-breasted).

    I guess all our two button navy jackets with special buttons never have counted despite that everyone calls them blazers...
