Winter has come and gone, and summer in on the anvil, which means its finally time to dress up in this season’s all-white trend. Whether you're headed for a beach or the city streets, there's something about this all-white ensemble that keeps things simple, yet chic, and is an easy way to look fresh all season long. White is also currently a dominant colour on the silver carpet, perfectly donned by stars Glenn Close, ‘Black Panther’s Danai Gurira, The Handmaid’s Tale star Elisabeth Moss as well as renowned Singer Lady Gaga who was nominated for her role in A Star Is Born, paired her white Dior dress with a jeweled choker taking a page from Angelina Jolie’s fashion book as she stunned on the SAG Awards silver carpet in a plunging white dress with a thigh-high split. While we are huge fans of the look, white outfits are admittedly hard to pull off and as with all of your fashion woes, we have compiled some simple and effective style advice and tips on how to play with textures, accessorize with bold colours and why you should carry a small instant stain remover in your handbag.
Wearing white during the summer days keeps things simple and fresh, but also elegant and chic but, wearing a white outfit from head to toe can be tricky. A simple solution is to break up the whites by mixing different shades, fabric, and textures. To add some edginess and still keep the look sporty and relaxed, pair it with black slide sandals. Coloured accessories are another way is to play up with your outfit and give the monochromatic style a fun update.
All-white outfits instantly add an elegant and sophisticated vibe. You can make a fancy top a bit more casual by wearing jeans. Pair it with go-to mirrored sunnies which takes the look to a whole new level. For people who are not a big fan of all-whites, can, however, brave to don all-white by tossing in a bit of colour, but nothing too crazy. Wearing navy blue shoes that take away from the outfit, but not by a lot.
Wearing all white is super scary, we are all one laundry day or coffee mishap away from a major disaster. A lot of folks think that white is a good option to wear under white, but actually, you’re better off with nude or pink. And the key to any monochrome dressing - Play with texture. If you’re going to wear white denim opt for a white gauzy blouse or vice-versa. You just want to make sure to show dimension. Turn to texture! Lace it up because it elevates what would otherwise be a simple white dress. Accessorize with a bold earring and geometric rings and cuffs. Shift dresses are go-to during all year round and that is why white lace dress works so well.
The key to wearing all white pieces is pairing an outfit with neutral accessories and finding white pieces that are not see through. White can be unflattering, so wearing white in a flattering cut is key to pulling off a great look. If you’ve tried shopping for the all-white trend you know the second key pairing can be hard to find. A lot of pieces in the store are far too sheer to be called a top or a dress. Embrace this trend to stay cool but air on the side of caution when it comes to how much you are really boring.
White is a beautiful colour and can be worn all year round. Investing in classic pieces that will not go out of trend with changing seasons. For example, classic white denim and a white tee combo is here to stay forever and team them up to create your white-on-white outfit. This combination is perfect for a day out and can easily be dressed up with a white blazer for the evenings. Carry a white sling bag to complete the look. A pop of colour always adds a spark to an all-white outfit and do that with a pair of mirrored sunglasses, a dainty red pendant and a dash of red on lips as well.
