We would like to call your attention to Naomi Watts's white Helmut Lang blazer ($645), which she has now worn on two separate occasions. At The Impossible's afterparty in Madrid, the actress paired her sleek jacket with a white tee, black skinny jeans, black pointy-toe pumps, a black quilted clutch, and a few delicate gold jewels. Most recently, though, Naomi sported her blazer with relaxed black trousers, strappy flat sandals, a black bag with bamboo handles, and aviator sunglasses. And we can't say that we blame her for making this white blazer a go-to staple. It lends an instantly chic tilt to any look, and stands out thanks to the black-collar detail. Snag Naomi's exact Helmut Lang jacket to work into your own Spring wardrobe, or — if the price tag is too steep — shop other equally sleek white blazers below.
Just because it's not scorching hot doesn't mean you have to shun your white pieces. We especially don't want you to shy away from your gorgeous white blazers. They're such an easy way to inject a major dose of chic into any of your looks, as any of these seven celebrity looks can demonstrate. With ease, each of these style-setters has incorporated a white topper into her look and inspires us to do the same.

From the red carpet to everyday ensembles, black and white is one color combo that oozes sophistication, which is why we are crushing hard on Kim Kardashian's latest travel look. She styled a white tank and matching blazer with slouchy black trousers and black strappy sandals after touching down in Miami. Kim then accessorized her polished pairing with blackout aviators and a houndstooth scarf tucked neatly in her crocodile Hermès tote. Re-create Kim's sleek style with a white blazer, loose trousers, and black strappy sandals for a sleek date-night look.
Leave it to Kim Kardashian to look fully polished while grocery shopping in Miami. For her daytime outing, the brunette beauty worked a chic monochromatic look — white boyfriend blazer, white tapered trousers, and a simple tank — with these ultra-luxurious Christian Louboutin snakeskin pumps ($1,295). Kim then accessorized with a gold snake-wrap necklace and matching bracelet. Take a cue from Kim and pair a white blazer, white trousers, and basic white tank with sexy snakeskin pumps for a wildly chic style.
Kate Winslet was all business, working a black-on-black ensemble with a white contrast-trim Helmut Lang blazer on her way to a meeting in London. The actress's monochromatic look — black blouse, matching skinny jeans, and pointed leather boots — was the perfect canvas to make her sleek white topper pop. Oversize gradient sunglasses, a beige leather shoulder bag, and a few gold accessories completed Kate's latest London look. Work this almost-identical contrast-trim Tobi blazer ($80) with a black top, black skinny jeans, and leather ankle boots to nail Kate's streamlined style.
Kim Kardashian swapped her signature black leather look for a more streamlined white-on-white outfit while running errands in Miami. She layered a white Phillip Lim blazer over a white tee, matching skinny Seven For All Mankind jeans, and pointy Manolo Blahnik pumps, then completed her chic style with a crystal bib necklace by Givenchy and a volumized ponytail. Mimic Kim's white-hot ensemble with a white blazer, basic tee, skinny jeans, and matching pumps for a lunch date or tuck this white Equipment button-down blouse ($208) into this chic Ann Taylor pencil skirt ($60, originally $80) to take this monochromatic look straight to the boardroom.
Alessandra Ambrosio made our heads turn in short mint denim cutoffs and lust-worthy Valentino rockstud pumps ($895) while running errands around LA. The model mom paired her pastel shorts with a blush silk tank and white blazer to create the perfect pastel palette for a sunny day, then upped the cool factor via aviators, a rose gold watch, and a few wrap necklaces — including this Emerson Ryder bar necklace ($1,000). While the weather is still warm, re-create Alessandra's leggy look with a pair of mint cutoffs, a crisp white blazer, and embellished pumps. Then come Fall, swap the shorts for mint-colored skinny jeans, like this pair from Hudson ($154), to combat the cold in style.
Elizabeth Olsen donned a sleek black-and-white look — a white Topshop blazer ($130) and black leather ASOS pencil skirt ($156) — while promoting her new movie Liberal Arts in London. She styled her chic two-tone pairing with black ankle-strap sandals and a chunky onyx watch. Re-create Elizabeth's edgy-slash-ladylike ensemble with her exact white blazer and leather skirt along with a simple black tee and black sandals or swap her top for this contrast-collar Equipment blouse and black pumps for the office.
Kate Hudson was smashing in black and white, donning a contrasting-collar white blazer ($1,895) and tuxedo-stripe pants, both by Alexander McQueen, with embellished Brian Atwood pumps at the Glee season four launch party in LA. Although all the stars that attended looked gorgeous, we particularly love how Kate's crochet black tank injected the right amount of sexy to her androgynous suit. The blond beauty then finished her red-carpet style off with a few Pomellato gold link bracelets and two-tone clutch. Nail Kate's borrowed-from-the-boys look with a few easy styling tips, then shop her exact jacket to work with white tuxedo-stripe trousers and embellished black pumps for a glamorous night out.
Emma Watson was spotted outside David Letterman's studio in NYC wearing a chic black-and-white ensemble that's super easy to re-create, and you probably already have the main pieces in your closet. The actress started with a black tank and black J Brand cropped jeans ($297), then topped it off with a crisp white blazer. For extra pizazz, Emma finished her look with black-and-gold chain-strap Tom Ford sandals and a gold necklace. What's great about this outfit is that it can work everywhere from the office to a party to a day of running errands. While Emma's exact sandals aren't available online, shop these similar BCBGMAXAZRIA chain sandals ($195) for the same edgy effect. Swap the heels for these Dolce Vita flat chain sandals ($169) if you seek a comfier alternative.
