The Hunt: Stylish White Blazers for Work

Sure, we all know what wardrobe essentials for work professional women are supposed to have in their closets, but if you’re buying one for the first time or replacing one you’ve worn into the ground, it can be a pain to find exactly the right incarnation in stores. In “The Hunt,” we search the stores for a basic item that every woman should have.

Awwww, we haven’t gone on a hunt for white blazers since 2013 — let’s see what’s out there now. For my $ .02, the white blazer can be a great staple for spring and summer, instantly freshening and lightening up any outfit. The trick, of course, is to get one that doesn’t make you feel like you’re playing doctor for the day. To that end, I’ve always avoided the “classic blazer” shape for white blazers — if it has regular lapels, odds are good you’re going to feel like you’re wearing a lab coat. (But not always, of course — if you’ve already got a white blazer with lapels that you love to wear to work, by all means, go on wearing it!) Similarly, a shrunken blazer tends to avoid the “doctor” vibe much better than a hip-length blazer. With all that said… there are a ton of those blazers (hip length! with lapels!) out there in stores right now, so if you’re wearing that kind of white blazer, do share some of your styling tricks with us. 

Readers, are you fans of the white blazer for work for summer months? (I’ve tried to include jardigans and sweater blazers in today’s Hunt, but didn’t find many — have you found one in the past that you love?)

Ok — I feel like we’re starting this Hunt strong, as one of the cutest blazers is also one of the most affordable — I love this blazer from JCrew Factory! It’s available in sizes XXS-3X, it’s machine washable, and the blend of cotton/linen is certain to be breathable. I like the bracelet sleeves, the sleek, collarless look, and yes, the poms. 

This collarless blazer is fully lined, and I love the black detailing along the edge — just enough for some definition. It’s $ 72, and available in regular and petite sizes 0-14.

This sweater jacket from Boden is definitely more on the “cardigan” side of things, but I feel like the red detailing and pockets put it in “sweater blazer” territory. The wide open weave should be nice and airy, and I like the casual vibe. It’s $ 110, and available in sizes XS-XL. Other knit/jardigan-y options include this ivory sweater jacket from Talbots, this roomy sweater blazer from J.Crew (also at Nordstrom), and this “open blazer cardigan” from Nic + Zoe.  

 

While doing this Hunt I saw a lot of higher end versions of basically this look — long, collarless, with hook and eye closures. (For example.) I like that this Talbots linen blazer comes in regular, petite, plus, and plus size petite size ranges — all for $ 159-$ 179. 

A little tweedy goodness is a great way to move away from “lab coat,” and I’m loving the fringe details on this Ann Taylor blazer. It’s available in regular and petites up to size 18  – regular and petite up to size 18 — and (whoa) is machine washable. It’s $ 169.

There are much more expensive white blazers to be had, but I think we’ll round out this Hunt with this $ 245 option from Of Mercer — I like the tweed fringe, the “hint of metallic thread” as well as the “fusion of uptown class and downtown cool.” (It’s also machine washable — and made in NYC!) It’s available in sizes 00-14, in white and black. 

Readers, how are you styling white blazers for work — and have you bought any recently?

Looking Under the Hood: 14 Years Photographing White Power

Courtesy Anthony Karen

On June 10, 1966, three Klansmen murdered Ben Chester White, a 67-year-old African American farmhand, in Homochitto National Forest, southwestern Mississippi. They had kidnapped White from the nearby town of Natchez, shot him at least 18 times, and thrown his body off of a bridge into the creek below. The FBI believed that the wanton killing was part of a plot to attract Martin Luther King Jr. to Natchez, where the Klan hoped to assassinate him too.

Almost 50 years later, photographer Anthony Karen was standing on the bridge in Homochitto. FBI documents that he had obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests corroborated that this was indeed the site of White’s murder, though Karen could not be certain which bank of the 10-foot-wide creek his body had washed up on to be discovered by a picnicking family in 1966. But there was one cruel lead: the carcass of a poached deer, caught on the right bank.

The 53-year-old Karen’s journey to Homochitto was part of his larger collection of work on the white power movement. Since 2005, he has been photographing hate groups across the United States, from Klansmen in Kentucky to Nazis in Pennsylvania. Unwilling to be cast as a propagandist, he has further investigated the causes and consequences of hate groups, such as in projects documenting the history of a Nazi who discovers that he has Jewish heritage and following the trail of Ku Klux Klan-related crimes during the Civil Rights era, including the murder of Ben Chester White.

Kamala Harris Was Rudely Interrupted By A White Man At A Presidential Forum And I’m Disgusted

MoveOn Big Ideas Presidential Forum

Source: Kimberly White / Getty

At MoveOn’s Big Ideas forum this weekend, 2020 presidential candidates were given the platform to discuss how they would turn this country around if they won the election. While candidate Kamala Harris was on stage discussing her agenda to help close the pay gap between men and women, an unknown man crashed the stage. It turns out the man that snatched the microphone from Harris is an animal rights activist named Aidan Cook. He rudely interrupted Harris’ speech about the gender pay gap in hopes of raising awareness about the mass extinction of animals. His attempt was unsuccessful as many hopped on stage to escort him off.

“We sincerely regret that a protestor was able to gain access to the stage at our forum today & we apologize to Sen. [Kamala Harris.] The protester was removed & the program resumed. MoveOn members were excited to hear Harris continue to discuss her Big Idea to achieve pay equity,” MoveOn said via Twitter.

Cook told a reporter from The Guardian that he was well aware of how terrible it looked for him to rush the stage and snatch a microphone from a black woman.

“I did,” he said. “I tried to show my profound respect for each of the people onstage.”

What Cook did was blatantly disrespectful and also symbolizes how devalued the voice of black women is in this country. The fact that Cook thought it was appropriate to bombard the stage and disrupt a noteworthy and necessary conversation between two black women shows the audacity of white privilege and the problematics of it. The point of the Big Ideas forum was to give presidential candidates the stage, so this was not the place or time for him to speak up for animals.

Cook’s efforts were unsuccessful anyway because what is most memorable about his actions is how insolent they were to Harris and the entire forum. People will remember that a white man continued the narrative that it is acceptable to take a platform that was not his from a black woman and disregard her and whatever she was saying. Next time, Cook needs to save his speech for the next animal rights rally, not for when it is time to figure out who we want to run our country.

Take a look at what happened below.

Laura Ingraham Defends White Supremacist ‘Censored on Social Media’

Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Thursday sympathetically portrayed notorious white supremacist Paul Nehlen as a “prominent voice” who has fallen victim to censorship for his beliefs on “border enforcement.”

Hosting far-right commentator Candace Owens during a segment on right-wing figures who have recently been kicked off social media, Ingraham began the discussion by brushing off criticism of doctored videos of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as part of a “larger effort to silence conservative voices ahead of the 2020 election.”

The pair went on to complain that the left is “thin-skinned” and that liberals are “meddling in the election” because of their supposed efforts to ban conservative voices, prompting Owens to say that it will only lead to Trump winning by a big margin in 2020.

This is what drinking white wine says about your personality

Interesting

white wine

Whether you prefer a full bodied red or a crisp glass of white, there’s one thing we now know – that your vino of choice says a lot about your personality.

According to new research, there are some big differences between red and white wine drinkers.

A survey of 2,000 Americans aged over 21 found that white wine drinkers are more likely to be extroverted individuals who prefer to stay up late and listen to punk music apparently. They’re also more likely to be curious, sarcastic perfectionists, prefer cats over dogs and are willing to spend less on a bottle.

The study was conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Coravin, and they also looked at the personality traits of red wine drinkers. They tended to be early risers, listen to jazz music and deem themselves adventurous, humble and organised.

The research also showed that those who prefer red see themselves as ‘wine aficionados’ – and the results show that they’re not wrong, as they’re more likely to know how to hold the glass correctly, what tannins are and how long it takes for wine to oxidise.

Greg Lambrecht, Founder and Inventor of Coravin said: ‘Enjoying a glass of whatever wine someone is in the mood for, doesn’t need to be wasteful. There are more amazing wines available now, than ever before. Wine lovers should be able to enjoy the wine they love, in the amount they want, without thinking about when they are going to return to that bottle.’

One thing the two groups agreed on was that their favourite place to enjoy a drink is at home.

As for those who drink both? We’ll just have to assume you’re all of the above.

White Suit with Spanish Flair

A new outfit from Carelia Morán of My Small Wardrobe, whom we introduced to YLF in July 2013.

Carelia is sporting a white denim outfit with lots of pizzazz. She’s combined white flares with a white, on-trend chore jacket which creates a polished casual suit effect. The full-length jeans are high-rise which lengthens the leg line, so do the white pointy-toe heels and jeans with an extra long length. Pairing the crisp jeans with a short-sleeved shirt in an exuberant floral print adds dramatic colour to the look. Knotting the blouse fully exposes the high rise for an extra elongating effect. Punchy red lipstick that matches the shirt, big earrings, and a patterned bag also dress up the outfit, while Carelia’s black bolero hat adds a touch of Spanish flair.

Numerous Boston Red Sox Curving Donald Trump White House Visit

Oakland Athletics v Boston Red Sox

Source: Billie Weiss/Boston Red Sox / Getty

The Boston Red Sox won the last World Series, which naturally means a White House visit. However, a number of Red Sox players will be skipping on visiting the house that Donald Trump is ruining, for obvious reasons.

Reports Deadspin:

The Red Sox wrap up a road trip in Baltimore this week, but won’t all be heading back to Boston together. The team is running two separate charter flights, one going home on Wednesday, after the final game of the series, and one on Thursday, an off-day. The second is to accommodate the players, coaches, and executives who will be attending a White House ceremony for the defending champs; the first is for all those who are pointedly skipping the meeting with President Trump. It remains to be seen which flight will be fuller.

Perhaps the biggest story is Red Sox manager Alex Cora skipping the trip. A native of Puerto Rico, he figures not showing up will do more to bring attention to Trump’s ill-treatment of the island in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.

We respect it.

Tucker Carlson Tells Stephen Moore the White House Showed ‘Weakness’ by Giving Up on Him

Hours after President Trump announced that Stephen Moore had withdrawn his name from consideration for the Federal Reserve Board, Fox News host Tucker Carlson told Moore Thursday night that the White House “should have never given into” criticism over Moore’s past sexist and misogynistic remarks.

With multiple Republican senators suggesting they wouldn’t support Moore’s nomination in the wake of his resurfaced comments, the president tweeted out Thursday that Moore was out—even though just two hours prior the right-wing economist had told Bloomberg he was “all in” on the nomination.

Comparing Moore to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Carlson claimed that “nobody even mentioned your views on relevant issues” before telling Moore he was “fascinated to see that CNN” was leading the charge against him considering Moore had worked for them until recently.

University of Virginia Basketball Team Will Not Celebrate NCAA Win at the White House

(WASHINGTON) — The Virginia Cavaliers, winners of this year’s NCAA men’s basketball tournament, won’t be going to the White House to celebrate with President Donald Trump.

Head coach Tony Bennett tweeted Friday that the team has “received inquiries about a visit to the White House” but “would have to respectfully decline an invitation.”

Bennett said, “With several players either pursuing pro opportunities or moving on from UVA, it would be difficult, if not impossible to get everyone back together.”

The Villanova Wildcats, who won the 2018 NCAA men’s tournament, didn’t visit the White House, either.

However, the Clemson Tigers, who won the college football championship in January, did go to the White House — where Trump famously served them fast food from McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Burger King.

And the Baylor Lady Bears, who won this year’s NCAA women’s basketball tournament, have accepted a White House invitation. The school said Wednesday that coach Kim Mulkey and the Lady Bears expect to meet with Trump when they are in Washington on Monday.

Chrissy Teigen Goes Off on Fox News’ Laura Ingraham Over Time 100 Rant, Calls Her a ‘White Supremacist’

Theo Wargo/Getty

Fox News host Laura Ingraham was clearly appalled that Chrissy Teigen was named one of Time magazine’s top 100 influential people. “Speaking of glamour, model and wife of John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, was also chosen as one of the 100 most influential,” Ingraham said on her program, making air quotes when she said the word “influential.” The Fox host went on to describe Teigen as “also known for her vicious attacks on President Trump.”

But Ingraham, who was not on Time’s list, seemed most infuriated that Teigen’s write-up included a reference to food and the word “fuck.”

“She was chosen, according to the profile, because quote, all her life Chrissy Teigen has liked to eat. She’s not shy about that or anything else really.”

Disgraced Former Rep. Todd Akin Donated to Steve King After ‘White Supremacy’ Comments

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/Reuters

Just weeks after Rep. Steve King (R-IA) appeared to publicly defend the idea of white supremacy, he received a four-figure donation from a political group run by a controversial one-time colleague, disgraced former Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO).

Akin’s leadership PAC, Takin Back America PAC, donated $ 2,000 to King’s campaign on Feb. 2, according to a newly filed financial disclosure statement. That was less than a month after King, in an interview with The New York Times, asked, “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization—how did that language become offensive?”

King also got a $ 2,000 contribution from the campaign of former Rep. Lamar Smith, who retired in January, about a week before King’s interview with the Times.

It’s Official! Shameless’ Jeremy Allen White Is Engaged to GF Addison Timlin

He put a ring on it! Shameless star Jeremy Allen White is engaged to longtime girlfriend Addison Timlin, Us Weekly can exclusively confirm.

The news comes shortly after the pair sparked speculation on Friday, April 12, that they were engaged when they were spotted holding hands in L.A. with the That Awkward Moment actress, 27, sporting a diamond ring on her left hand. Timlin looked casual in a white T-shirt and jeans, with her new bling on full display, while White, 28, was also dressed down for the occasion in a matching ensemble.

White and Timlin welcomed their first child together, a daughter, in October 2018. “Ezer Billie White 10.20.2018 Welcome to the world baby girl, it just got so much brighter,” the actress gushed alongside an Instagram picture of the Movie 43 actor holding their newborn at the time.

The newly minted fiancés announced the news of their growing family in June. “We made a baby and my heart is bursting at the seams,” Timlin shared along with a selfie that showed her beau touching her bare baby bump and kissing her on the shoulder. “Today is my birthday but my wish already came true. This is 27 and the best is yet to come.”

Timlin gave thanks for the couple’s year of blessings in a New Year’s post on social media. “2018, you gave me all I’ve ever truly wanted,” she captioned an Instagram pic of White holding their little girl.

More recently, Timlin shared a sweet shoutout to White on Instagram with a throwback picture from when she was pregnant. “Happy birthday to my very best friend in the entire f–king world,” she wrote. “I love you so much it is stupid.”

The duo starred alongside each other in the 2008 movie Afterschool, however, it wasn’t until years later that Timlin and White embarked on a romantic relationship.

Trevor Noah Grills Bernie Sanders: Does America Really Need Another Old White Guy?

Comedy Central

By almost any measure, Senator Bernie Sanders is the frontrunner for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. But when he sat down with Trevor Noah on The Daily Show Thursday night, the host had one big question about his place in the field.

“This is an interesting time where this field is more diverse than ever before, but some people have said, all right, you have a diverse field, but it feels like the frontrunners are still old white men,” Noah said, citing Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden, who has not yet announced his candidacy.

“You’re not talking about me, are you?” Sanders joked.

Brittany Packnett & Symone Sanders Attacked By White Man Inside A Delta Airport Lounge

“I’ll be damned if I came all the way to Africa to be attacked[d] by a white man,” Brittany Packnett wrote in a tweet on Friday morning, detailing a terrifying encounter her and political strategist Symone Sanders experienced while waiting to board their flight in Nairobi, Kenya.

Sanders, along with Packnett, asserts that they were attacked by a white man in the Delta SkyClub Lounge at the airport. According to tweets from both, the man reportedly doused Packnett with water, pushed her and attempted to charge at them during the attack on Thursday evening.

Sanders said the trouble began when she respectfully asked the man to quiet down, according to an interview she gave with The Root.

“He was speaking loudly and cursing to someone on the phone,” Sanders said.

“The lounge attendant and two other people asked him to quiet down. I interjected after he was rude to the lounge attendant. I leaned over and said, ‘Pardon me. Will you please keep it down?’” she continued.

She said the man began speaking louder and continuously threw up his middle finger in her direction while they were sitting on the same bench. Sanders said that things escalated after a Black female lounge attendant tried to intervene on their behalf.

“So I get up and ask again, ‘Sir, please. This is ridiculous; no one is being rude to you, and you terrorizing the people in this lounge is not OK.’ He continues giving me the middle finger. … I sit down, and then the flight attendant gets back up. Next thing we know, he jumps up and throws his water at the nearest person (Brittany)—like, drenches her whole body, then pushes her down. He lunges at her, then I jump in to defend her. It was terrifying.”

Sanders identified the name of her attacker as a citizen of the United Kingdom via Twitter and gave an update that he was arrested before they boarded their flight.

According to Tweets from Packnett, men who witnessed the exchange finally intervened after their attacker attempted to lunge at them. Sanders and Packnett both say that it took 30 minutes for police to arrive on the scene. Delta has yet to make a statement regarding the issue, even as the women tagged the airline in their Tweets.

After their Tweets sparked a conversation on social media, Packnett wrote about the atrocities that Black women face in relation to their bodies, while experiencing both physical and psychological trauma. All of it compounded with the knee-jerk reaction of not being believed.

While the women undoubtedly had a live-altering trip in the motherland, we hope that Delta will do right by them on account of the racism and aggression that took place on Thursday night.

White Couple Markets Water As 40-Ounce Malt Liquor in the Hood

They’re cheap, pack a high-alcohol content, and are often associated with gangsters, low-income communities, and classic hip-hop. Perhaps, that’s part of the reason why Hollywood actor Theo Rossi and his wife, Meghan, thought it would be a good idea to emulate the image of a 40-ounce bottle of malt liquor to sell spring water. They were wrong.

Activists and elected officials in Brooklyn, New York, are calling for the removal of Ounce Water from local stores, arguing that the packaging of the water bottles promotes negative stereotypes about black communities as well as alcoholism. In a tweet, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams called the marketing scheme “tone-deaf.”


Protesters say the water bottles are directly linked to the history of cheap liquors like Colt 45, Olde English, and Private Stock, which were marketed to black neighborhoods and glorified through rap music. As a result, this led to alcoholism and “a big part of the demise” of working class communities of color, community member Christine Gilliam told Yahoo.

“In a community that has been ravaged by alcohol and drugs, we are confused as to why someone would create a product that so closely resembles a malt liquor bottle,” wrote Breukelen RISE, an activist group that serves at-risk youth and their families, in a letter to the company, according to The New York Daily News.

As a result of the outrage, Ounce Water was forced to pull some of its products from a supermarket in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Canarsie last week after NYCHA activists complained about its controversial campaign. However, they were replaced with 20-ounce bottles from the same company.

“They called the store and said we were promoting alcoholism by selling water in that bottle,” said Kevin Chang, the manager of the Food World supermarket, to The New York Daily News. “They said they’d come and protest unless we got rid of them. We called the manufacturer. They came and took the 40s and gave us the 20s. To be quite honest, it does look like an Olde English, but it’s plastic. It’s not glass. It’s just water. It says water on the contents.”

Founded in 2015, a company spokesperson said Ounce Water’s mission is to keep people hydrated.

“Ounce Water is hydration made easy. Ounce Water is 100% pure natural spring water,” reads a company statement. “We are highly involved in community activities for youth and adults which focus on health and wellness, and further the education of the health benefits of proper hydration.”

However, much like the backlash against luxury brands like Gucci and Prada, which have been accused of marketing racist imagery, critics say 40 Ounce Water is blackface in a bottle. “It’s insulting to our intelligence,” Thora Lashley said. “What’s next, candy corn in a crack vial? Juice in a syringe?

Lashley, who has lived in Brooklyn’s Breukelen Houses for 50 years, says she saw countless friends succumb to alcoholism growing up in the city housing, some as young as 12 years old. Many of them drank 40s in the hallways, on stoops, and in courtyards, she added.

Derek Perkinson, city field director for the National Action Network, agrees with the protesters. “If it’s a health kick, fine. We’re all for that,” he said. “But the presentation of it in a 40-ounce bottle is bad. We reserve the right to protect our children from being targeted. They should be ashamed of themselves.”

House Resolution to Condemn Anti-Semitism, Anti-Muslim Discrimination, and White Supremacy

The House of Representatives is expected to vote on a resolution Thursday condemning anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim discrimination, and bigotry following Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar’s controversial comments about the role of pro-Israel activists in the U.S. government.

“This is an opportunity once again to declare as strongly as possible opposition to anti-Semitism, anti-Muslim statements,” and “white supremacist attitudes,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, according to the New York Times.

The resolution addresses the growth of hate crimes over the past few years, stating, “whether from the political right, center, or left, bigotry, discrimination, oppression, racism, and imputations of dual loyalty threaten American democracy and have no place in American political discourse.”

Pelosi reportedly said Thursday that the resolution is not about Omar, but about all kinds of hatred. While it does have a wider frame of condemnation, the resolution specifically mentions the idea of “dual loyalty” that Omar has been criticized for mentioning, “especially in the context of support for the United States-Israel alliance.”

Omar–a Minnesota Democrat and one of two Muslim women in Congress–came under fire last week for arguing the American Israel Public Affairs Committee pushes for “allegiance to a foreign country.” This isn’t her first comment to be labeled anti-Semitic: Omar apologized for similarly controversial tweets last month while maintaining her criticism of AIPAC.

Pelosi said that while it’s up to Omar to explain her comments, “I do not believe that she understood the full weight of her words.”

Some Democrats have harshly condemned Omar for her words while others asked why the House does not equally condemn discriminatory comments made by President Donald Trump and their GOP colleagues. Thus the resolution also denounces all bigotry, anti-Muslim discrimination, and white supremacy.

“The president may think there are good people on both sides,” said Pelosi, referencing Trump’s comments following the 2017 white supremacist march in Charlottesville. “We don’t share that view.”

The Hunt: White Tops for Spring

the best white tops for work

2019 Update: This post was originally published in 2016, but we’ve updated our favorite white tops for work as of Feb. 2019 — see below!

Sure, we all know what basics professional women are supposed to have in their closets, but if you’re buying one for the first time or replacing one you’ve worn into the ground, it can be a pain to find exactly the right incarnation in stores. In “The Hunt,” we search the stores for a basic item that every woman should have.

Pictured at top, clockwise: V-neck / crew / relaxed / scalloped / sleeveless / polka dotted sweater / Swiss dot button front

I would guess that 60% of my closet — if not more — is black. White appears far less frequently — but even I love to herald the beginning of spring by buying a few new white tops every year, and (if they’ve held up well enough), pulling out old favorites from previous years.  The white blouse, of course, is a classic — but sometimes you want something that isn’t quite as fussy or as formal as a blouse with collars or buttons. (If you’re on the hunt for a basic button-front blouse, a silky collared blouse, or a basic tee or shell to wear beneath a suit, check out our latest roundups on those topics.) I never know what to call these items (tops? shirts? white non-blouses?) but I do think they’re something that makes every outfit more versatile — and can be an easy way to take your more formal suits away from the dreaded “I’ve got a secret interview today” territory. Of course I am on #teamwhitecamisole as well, but that’s me…

In my mind, white tops break down into basic general categories, which I’ll lay out below…. I’ll note at the outset that a lot of these tops come in colors other than white, which show the details FAR better than the white versions, at least online. In fact, the very fact that there IS a white option may be hidden because the color doesn’t show up against your screen — so use the dropdown color picker menu if in doubt (screenshot of what I mean here).

The Slightly Fancy White Tee

These shirts — usually in jersey or some other t-shirt like material — have a few great details that elevate them from your basic white t-shirt.  The details are usually near the neck — but sometimes also down the back or at the hem; the material may also be different or nicer in some way than your usual t-shirt.  Pro: these can be easy to care for, and if you have fit problems because of your bust/waist ratio, these can be easier to wear than a button-front shirt. Cons: opacity can be a problem, and some details (like a sheer shoulder like the lace one below) may give you pause for your office or wardrobe. (For my $ .02 I think they look lovely as a layering piece, particularly beneath a blazer – I just layer a camisole beneath them and a regular nude-for-me bra.)

fancy white t-shirt for suits



The Blouse Tee

These tops are shaped like a tee (and are usually pullovers), but usually made from a blousy material. They can look nice and crisp, but can be high maintenance (e.g., required dry cleaning or ironing). They also can cross into the “too informal” category pretty easily.

t-blouse for work



The White Knit Short-Sleeved Sweater

These can be difficult to find online — so when you see them in the store at places like Ann Taylor or Banana Republic, do stock up! Pros: they’re definitely fancier than a t-shirt material, and sometimes more opaque (be on the safe side here and wear a camisole and nude-for-you bra the first time, though). Cons: they may need extra care in the laundry, or they may fade or look “dirty” too soon.

short-sleeved white sweaters for work



The Non-Blousy Blouse

I normally think of a blouse as having buttons and/or a collar — these tops lack that, but they definitely still feel like a blouse in formality, usually because of their material.  These can be a more modern option, as well as being easier to fit if gaping is a problem… but they can be harder to care for and be more sheer.

non-blousy blouses for work



The Casual/Feminine Blouse

These are blouses that may have buttons up the front and/or a collar — but there’s something about it that makes it more feminine, such as a burnout pattern (like the polka dots below), a peplum detail, eyelet/lace, a wrap effect, or an unusual fabric (like the jersey one we featured a while ago from Anne Fontaine). If you work in a very conservative office and are striving to add more feminine details to your workwear, start here because it’s hard to go wrong (beyond wrinkles/sheerness/etc) — for all but the most formal of occasions they’re appropriate, and an easy, chic addition to your wardrobe that goes with everything else.

feminine white blouses



The White Shell

This can be a huge category — or a very narrow one if going sleeveless isn’t appropriate at your office. To be honest, unless you wear a lot of cardigans or washable blazers, I’d avoid these tops in general — I always think it’s better to wear a sleeved layer beneath a blazer, if only to make trips to the dry cleaner more minimal (not only is it expensive, but it can be really hard on clothes too). I think they can work best with cardigans because you don’t get that line on your arm where your sleeve ends — but if you’re going for bang for your buck, I’d stick with sleeved options. Still, if you’re on the hunt, here are a few cute ones:

This is a huge category (and this was a big of a runaway post!) — but what categories am I missing? What white tops do you need in your wardrobe, or have proven themselves to be real workhorses? How do you guys like to make your work outfits more springlike?

I mostly consider black to be my base for my work wear -- but even I love a white top for spring; they have a way of freshening up your entire work wardrobe and making all of your work outfits that much crisper and lighter! These are the six tops every career woman should consider adding to her wardrobe in spring -- great for wearing under suits, layering under cardigans, and adding as a simple topper to skirts and trousers.

Report: President Trump Installs $50,000 Golf Simulator in the White House

President Trump has installed a room-sized golfing simulator inside his personal quarters at the White House, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday.

The device, which reportedly cost $ 50,000, will enable the President to simulate playing on some of the world’s most famous golf courses. Trump paid for the simulator and its installation himself, according to the report.

The system replaced a less-sophisticated simulator that had been installed by President Barack Obama.

Before he became President himself, Trump frequently complained that Obama golfed too much during his term. He tweeted about Obama’s golf hobby 27 times from 2012 to 2016, according to SB Nation.

However, Trump has spent significantly more of his time as President golfing than Obama. The Washington Post reports that Trump plays about 70 rounds of golf a year, while Obama played, on average, 38 rounds.

Golf courses have also been a signature part of Trump’s career as an hotelier. The Trump Organization operates 17 golf courses, according to the company’s website.

This year got off to a slow start for Trump’s golf hobby. During the 34-day government shutdown, Trump didn’t golf at all. After the shutdown ended, he broke his golf-free streak by playing a round of golf on his Mar-a-Lago estate with golf stars Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods on Feb. 2.

Trump hasn’t used the simulator yet, the Post reports.

All White adidas Sneaker From Black History Month Collection Gets Shelved

ADIDAS UltraBOOST Uncaged BLACK HISTORY MONTH

Source: ADIDAS / adidas

Obviously someone at adidas wasn’t wearing their thinking cap when curating a nod to African Americans. To many, A pair of mayonnaise flavored shoes were insensitive to say the least.

As per Hypebeast the sporting goods manufacturer definitely took a cultural loss when it came to their Black History Month collection. Included in the drop was a UltraBOOST model which in theory would make sense given it is one of their most popular sellers. Problem was it was an all white silhouette AND was named “UNCAGED”. Naturally the move got a huge side eye from sneaker enthusiasts and anybody with a bit of common sense alike.

Considering the set were made in the spirit of “Celebrating Black Culture” adidas released a formal statement apologizing for the huge faux pas.

“Adidas released a new collection in celebration of Black History Month featuring designs inspired by the Harlem Renaissance. It includes footwear and apparel across a variety of categories. Toward the latter stages of the design process, we added a running shoe to the collection that we later felt did not reflect the spirit or philosophy of how adidas believes we should recognize and honor Black History Month. After careful consideration, we have decided to withdraw the product from the collection.”

The sneaker has since been pulled. Other feet pieces included in the collection include re-invisioned versions of the Dame 5, Harden Vol. 3 and a Harlem inspired UltraBOOST. The adidas Black History Month went on sale starting February 5 here.

16 Things Black People Say or Do That Annoy White People at Work (And In General)

We published a list of things that white people should never say to their black co-workers. Now, Risha Grant, a public relations professional and diversity and inclusion expert, asked white people on her Facebook feed, to list the things that black people say or may do that annoy them.

Here are 16 of the top annoyances (mild and otherwise) that white people said they felt about black people mostly in the workplace, but also in general (these are posted verbatim from Risha Grant’s Facebook feed):

When you want to be friends with them at work but there are other black girls so you just can’t get close cuz ur just the white girl who is held at arms length. You get the feeling that they don’t believe you wanna be their friend. They think we are too different.

…there have been times that conversation with a Black person somehow turns to the topic of inequality…I have no way of truly knowing all the privilege that I enjoy as a white, straight male. I just know there are times, I’d like to learn more and the door closes.

…any time a black person walks into a room — say a new employee in an office — they make a beeline to the other black faces. It can be disappointing because I may know from advance notification about your hiring that you and I have a lot in common, but I have to work harder to be your friend.

On social media, a lot of my activist black friends will post complaints about “white people say …” “white people think…” “white people do …” And I always feel like saying, “Not ALL white people!”

[RELATED: 27 THINGS WHITE PEOPLE SHOULD NEVER, EVER SAY TO THEIR BLACK CO-WORKERS]

 more common amongst my black friends than any other group. I don’t like it when black people bring up my ‘white privilege’ for the reason they aren’t as well off as they THINK I am

I feel uncomfortable joining amazing organizations if prefaced with ‘black’. Like black nurses association. These are amamazazazing colleagues I want to network with but….I’m not black.

…have noticed a lot of times when I expect the black friend of mine to follow through or follow up on a conversation, weather [sic] it be to contact someone in business or to get back with me with some information it doesn’t always happen. So I would say for me it’s follow through or follow up when conversations are made about moving forward with something.

when I was working with children it seemed more common for black adults to come down on a child for crying or having emotions (particularly when little boys and young men cried, telling them to “Man up.”)

I can say that in my traditional classrooms over the years I’ve had more black kids that seem to go right to fighting on the playground- not a lot of build up, just straight to throwing punches

“The victim.” The ones that make any non black race feel like a dog for what their ancestors may or may not have done during the periods of slavery, and act like the current period non black races owe them something for it. 

Speaking as if they are uneducated. not accents but refusing to speak correctly.

…it seems like African Americans never use a crosswalk. Even if it’s right in front of them, they will go out of their way NOT to cross at the light. Is there something there or am I imagining things?

Poor grammar

It really irritates me that y’all can dance so much better than me! (No one who witnessed it has EVER forgotten your valiant attempt to teach me the Wobble!)

…please don’t assume all white people support Trump. Because we don’t.

A white person has to walk on eggshells with caveats to keep overly sensitive people from being offended — that seems to be one thing that black people do—get offended to easily.

In an article for TulsaWorld.com about her controversial Facebook question, Grant wrote that it took “almost two days to manage the 206 comments, shares, direct messages, and personal texts I received.” She went on to say, “Exercise that muscle to help you understand that regardless of how you identify, we are all a part of the human race. Once we understand that, we will better understand each other; and with that comes grace, respect, and total acceptance.”

White math teachers treat students differently in predominantly black schools

White math teachers in predominantly black middle schools are more likely to respond negatively to students’ behavioral or academic issues – and this may have long-term negative consequences for student performance, according to a new study that highlights the need to recruit more black teachers. The study, published recently in Harvard Educational Review, observed video data collected from 2009-2011 of 25 mathematics classrooms in middle schools that were either predominantly white or black.

Boys Will Be Boys. Covington’s Showed Yet Again Why Only White Boys Can Smirk Through That.

Photo Illustration by Lyne Lucien/The Daily Beast

Boys will be boys.

We expect them to rough-house, crash their father’s Volvo, have one too many beers and get caught pissing outside at least once in their lives. As a society, we have come to accept the skirt-chasing, even when that “skirt” is not interested. Male aggression is all too often embraced and rewarded as crassness and hyper-masculinity remain, unfortunately, a celebrated trait in some quarters, allowing men and boys a time-honored, unearned discount—a point of privilege that allows them to evade responsibility for minor and sometimes even egregious acts of wrongdoing.

Except that old “rule” does not apply to all boys and men.

Rep. Steve King Advocates White Nationalism and Needs a Black History Lesson

Congressman Steve King’s racist, white nationalist philosophy and false assertion that other ethnic groups or as he refers to it, “subgroups,”  have not contributed more to civilization is ridiculous.

Congressman King, did you know:

  • It was a black man by the name of Benjamin Banneker who mapped out the streets of our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. actually where your office is located.
  • Crispus Attucks, an African American man was the first man killed in the Boston Massacre, becoming the first casualty of the American Revolution.
  • Charles Richard Drew was an African American physician who developed the blood banks that saved many lives during World War II and even today. People of all races who get blood transfusions every day can thank a black man named Dr. Charles Drew.
  • A black man named Lewis Latimer invented the filament to the light bulb which gave the world long-lasting electric lighting methods that made it possible for the lights in your office to stay on for more than the 15 minutes that Thomas Edison reached.

By the way Congressman Steve King, we are not a “subgroup.” There is only one race, and that is the human race. Therefore, all racism is a total disgrace. Let’s not forget that Jesus Christ was a dark skin Jew, who was oppressed and crucified by the Roman government.

19-Year-Old Boy Attacked By a Great White By San Luis Obispo

Cal Poly student Nick Wapner was attacked by a 15-foot great white shark while surfing at Sand Spit in Montana de Oro State Park, just south of Morro Bay.

“Wapner received 50 stitches on both his legs after the shark clamped down from his right ankle to his left thigh. Luckily, Wapner was able to kick the shark off and didn’t sustain serious injuries to his limbs — and was able to get himself to the hospital by car. Montaña de Oro State Park Ranger Supervisor Robert Colligan said that Wapner was shaken up.” – San Luis Obispo News

State Park Supervisor Robert Colligan said it could have been an exploratory bite then let go.

Wapner did suffer a couple of deep wounds from the attack, but nothing life-threatening. The surfer has already expressed his interested in paddling back out after her recovers.

Outfit Formula: White Jeans in Winter

Wearing white jeans in Winter looks fresh and gives your blue jeans a break. It might not work in your snowy, slushy, rural and wet climate, or be your cup of tea. But as a white jeans advocate, I’m hopeful you’ll give it a go anyway. Maybe you’ll wear the look on a bright, dry and sunny Winter’s day. Or when you’re being chauffeured and don’t need to traipse through the snow. Failing that, freeze the idea till things thaw out in Spring.

For those who like to wear white jeans in Winter like I do, here are four ways to combine them with a neutral support act. You can swap out the black for navy or olive if that’s more to your taste.

1. Classic Fabness

Create a column of white with jeans and an off-white or tan pullover. Tuck or semi-tuck into the high rise and add a belt to bookend the black jeans, and possibly your dark hair. The horizontal line of the high-contrast belt is offset by the column of colour and high rise of the jeans that elongates the silhouette. Top things off with a high-contrast neutral coat. I love this even though I don’t wear black booties. I’d substitute the black for cognac booties and belt, and wear an olive parka, or navy coat.

Mango Faux-fur Quilted Parka

2. Earthy Flares

Create a column of Winter white with white jeans and a cream pullover. The white flares are lovely but desperately need DRY weather. I like the oversized fit of the pullover that’s offset by the sleeker thigh fit of the flares. The unstructured toffee topper adds visual interest. The heels create a longer leg line which can prevent that “dumpy” feeling when you wear wide unstructured layers. But by all means create a more structured silhouette and wear tapered jeans. White boots are fab, but toffee or metallic work as well.

Mango Wool Coat

3. Cosy and Wrapped

Combine white skinnies with a turtleneck or layering pullover of your choice. Bring on the drama with a patterned or solid wrap or poncho. Wear it unstructured or belted at the waist. Add neutral boots that work with the palette of the outfit. Here, tan boots would have worked as well as black.

Violeta Check Poncho

4. Structured Equestrian Lite

This one is for extremely mild Winter weather. Heck, I’d wear the combination in Summer. Combine white skinnies with a black tee and plaid equestrian blazer. Add black boots, mules, shooties, loafers or booties. For a proper Winter, I’d tuck white skinnies into tall black riding boots, and layer a black turtleneck under the patterned blazer. I’d throw an anorak, military coat or cocoon coat over the lot.

White Man Refuses To Let Black Men Enter Apartment Without Proof Of Residency [Video]

In this week’s edition of white people never learn , a man that Twitter has named Hallway Hasselhof refused to let his Black neighbor into his apartment building.

“What are you doing in my building?” the white man asks. “You don’t live here.”

Chika Okafor posted video of the confrontation to social media noting that he was interrogated for the crime of existing in a white space as a free Black man. Writing that the man in the video “interrogated” him while he was waiting for a Lyft on the first floor of his apartment building with a friend, who caught the whole exchange on video.

“I’ve lived here 27 years and I’ve never seen you,” said Hallway Hasselhof. Apparently, Okafor should have sent out an e blast informing everyone in the building that a Black man had moved in, to prevent a scene like this one from unfolding.

The white man was visibly upset that Okafor was not losing his composure because he folded his arms and stated “I can be as cool as you.”

“You left your MAGA hat upstairs, man,” the friend filming the heated conversation tells the man in the video.

Obviously this isn’t sitting well with Twitter who had a lot to say about Hallway Hasselhoff.

“What was with him criticizing you for being calm, collected and cool. These people can’t stand that a black man can be more dignified and cooler than they will ever be,” one Twitter user commented, Yahoo reports.

“If he was truly backing down to be neighborly, he would have done neighborly things like introduce himself or extend a handshake,” another person wrote. “His intentions were very clear.”

No word on what happened to Hallway Hasselhoff yet but we’re sure the Twitter detectives will identify him soon!

White Supremacist Group Tricked Brett Favre And Soulja Boy Into Promoting Anti-Semitism

A group of white supremacist YouTubers are using a new app to trick celebrities like former NFL quarterback Brett Favre and rapper Soulja Boy into making coded anti-Semitic videos.

Now, Favre and Soulja Boy are doing some serious backtracking after a report from BuzzFeed News revealed that they had been bamboozled.

via mashable.com:

The app, Cameo, seems pretty harmless on its face. It connects Average Joes with celebrities, and allows the former to pay the latter to make some kind of statement. Cameo calls them “personalized video shoutouts.”

According to BuzzFeed News, white supremacists used the app to get in touch with Brett Favre and Soulja Boy, and then paid them to made cryptic statements that were ostensibly supportive of U.S. troops but were filled with anti-Semitic dog whistles.

The group reportedly responsible calls itself the Goyim Defense League (GDL), and they used Cameo to get Favre to issue a statement containing their coded anti-Semitic message.

According to Cameo, a message from Favre costs $ 500.

“Brett Favre here with a shoutout to the Handsome Truth and the GDL boys,” Favre reportedly says in the video viewed by BuzzFeed News. “You guys are patriots in my eyes. So keep waking them up and don’t let the small get you down. Keep fighting, too, and don’t ever forget the U.S.S. Liberty and the men and women who died on that day. God bless and take care.”

According to the report, the usage of “small” is allegedly a slur for yarmulkes, and the U.S.S. Liberty is a naval ship that was “accidentally” attacked in 1967 by Israeli forces.

Favre maybe didn’t realize exactly what he was saying, and he posted a statement to Facebook denouncing the hate group.

“I was distressed to learn that the request came from an anti-Semitic group that reposted my video with comments implying that I endorsed their mission,” read the statement in part. “Nothing could be further from the truth. I am therefore donating my $ 500 Cameo fee to Charities supporting their fight against hate and bigotry.”

Meanwhile, Soulja Boy recorded a similar video promoting GDL ideology.

“Shoutout to Handsome Truth and Sway at GDL,” the rapper says in a video viewed by Buzzfeed News, “GDL for life, bitch.”

A representative for Soulja Boy told the outlet that the rapper was unaware of the group’s affiliation.

“Soulja Boy was unaware that the video on Cameo was tied to a group that promotes hate.”

In any event, according to The Root, the video below may or may not be Soulja Boy describing his retaliation on the GDL when he had been tricked.

An app spokesperson told BuzzFeed News that the videos were removed and that the user who paid for them was banned. The company hopes to prevent something like this from happening again by rolling out new filters.

When Tesla CEO Elon Musk introduced a lower-priced Model 3 a few months ago, he deducted thousands in federal tax incentives from the sticker price. On Monday, according to Reuters, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said the subsidies for electric vehicles from Tesla and other carmakers would end in 2020 or 2021.

Trump’s administration has long floated the idea of eliminating the tax break. Last week, he said he was thinking about cutting electric vehicle subsidies for General Motors after it announced plans to shut down five U.S. car plants.  Read more…

While the summery dresses won’t work for the winter cold anymore, I have been noticing a pretty surprising fashion trend around a lot recently: the return of the white go go boot. And honestly, I stan.

Although in the past I’ve typically only seen them at costume parties, they’ve cemented themselves a little niche amongst the fashion forward this season. From chic leather pieces to jaw-dropping white snakeskin, a number of them were spotted all over the fashion week just gone.

With some of my favourite high street retailers and luxury brands jumping on the bandwagon, I’m genuinely tempted to join in – even if they’re not the most practical colour. (Needs must when it comes to looking cool AF.)

While they might seem pretty daunting to style, they’re a total dream if you pair them with another big winter trend: patterned midi dresses and midi skirts. And seeing that shock of white underneath a statement winter coat will have you Instagram ready in no time with a kick ass OOTD.

If you’re a go go boot purist, this might not be 100% the right edit for you as I’ve popped in a few pieces that take the staple into 2018. Don’t @ me on Twitter for steering away from the latex please, I’m just a girl in love with white boots.

And cowboy boots.

And ankle boots.

Just, boots.

If you end up buying a pair, sticking on ABBA’s Dancing Queen and having a little boogie, I’m right there with you. We should grab a coffee sometime.

Tibi Logan Patent-Leather Knee Boots

white boots

These are about as close as you’ll get to a traditional go go boot, as they’re made of the same shiny patent leather we’ve come to associate them with. That said, the pointed tip and rounded top bring it more into 2018 – so it’s more a chic throwback than a dated reference.

Mango Snake Effect High-Leg Boots

These are the shoes that kicked off my obsession with white boots, if I’m being perfectly honest. I saw them in Mango and they actually look a little paler than they do here, so IMO they still belong in the shade territory. Animal print is the trend that just doesn’t want to die this season and with faux snakeskin like this, why would you ever want it to?

Gabriela Hearst Linda Croc-Effect Leather Over-The-Knee Boots

Julia Mays Faux Fur White Nappa

I can never resist a bit of faux fur. These boots aren’t quite as tall as the others on the list and come to about your mid-calf. They’re giving me total Parisian chic vibes and while they’re a bit pricier, the quality speaks for itself as they’re made from Nappa leather and lined with faux fur inside to boot.

TBH these boots aren’t made for walking, but that’s still what they’ll do.

I’m just going to bite the bullet and commit to buying a pair, who needs Christmas presents for the fam anyways?

Soledad O’brien Slams Cnn For Giving ‘White Supremacists’ Airtime

Former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien slammed the network on Sunday for giving airtime to “racists” and “white supremacists” in an effort to boost ratings.

Her comments were in response to a viral Twitter thread created by Shareblue’s Oliver Willis that bashed CNN hosts for calling out “abhorrent behavior” and then inviting commentators on their shows who spew such behavior.

“They give a platform ― and their credibility ― to racists/white supremacists/ all in the name of ‘hearing them out,’ (which is a ratings ploy btw),” wrote O’Brien, who left CNN in 2013 after 10 years with the network.

The veteran journalist reiterated her CNN shade on Monday, tweeting that she had expressed the same criticism in the past.

“It was true then and remains true today,” she wrote.

Twitter user Ajamu Baraka noted: “CNN giving air time to racist and white supremacist is nothing new. During the 2016 campaign me and Jill Stein constantly pointed out how the major news outlets were giving millions of dollars of free time to Trump’s white supremacy.

It’s unclear whether a specific show segment inspired Willis to criticize the network, as he expressed online: “my major problem with how cnn operates is their anchors/hosts want to have their cake and eat it too. they want credit for calling out abhorrent behavior but when they enable the same behavior they insist theyre just “hearing them out.”

He appeared to mock what he believes to be CNN’s strategy: “Gassing toddlers and putting babies in cages is disgusting and beyond the pale! our next guest will now defend those things i just said are reprehensible, because every point of view is viable,” he wrote.

Back in 2016 when O’Brien appeared on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” she pointed out how hate speech is being normalized by giving airtime to Trump surrogates, who oftentimes double as white supremacists, per urbanmecca.net.

“If you look at Hillary Clinton’s speech [on why Trump’s policies are racist] she basically pointed out that what Donald Trump has done — actually quite well — has normalized White supremacy,” O’Brien stated. “I think she made a very good argument, almost like a lawyer. Here are ways in which he has actually worked to normalize conversations that many people find hateful.”

“I’ve seen White supremacists being interviewed because they are Trump delegates. And they do a five-minute segment, the first minute or so talking about what they believe as White supremacists. So you have normalized that,” she explained.
