3 Ways To Wear White This Summer

Whether it's tennis whites or billowing boho dresses, prepare to look white hot this summer!

Fresh, clean whites for summer might not be groundbreaking news, but this season, get ready to wear them from head to toe. From sheer, satin delights at Antonio Berardi and Prabal to tennis-fresh looks at Akris and cricket combinations at Preen, the catwalks have been given the Daz treatment and are indulging us in beautiful waves of all-white.

Whether you decide to take on its athletic side or go wistful in prairie-chic separates, prepare to look white hot this summer.

Weekend White-Out

Nothing quite says off-duty like denim, so take advantage and use its
relaxed credentials to downspin a smart outfit and make it work for the
weekend. A white denim jacket with a boxy fit (like this one from J Brand)
will play down even delicate chiffon, meaning your weekend look can go
from brunch to bar as easily as you can (just maybe avoid the red wine).
This textured skirt from Emma Cook
comes in jacket form too, which will look perfect paired with
ankle-grazing white skinny jeans. For a sporty take, choose a pleated
skirt or wide-leg trouser and team with box-fresh white plimsole.

Workwear Whites

Can’t wait until summer to wear the trend? Luckily spring still has some
tailoring up its sleeve and stark-white phobes will be pleased to learn
that muted tones and nude all count too. Chances are you’ve already got
oatmeal or off-white knits in your existing wardrobe, which makes this
already low-maintenance look even easier to put together. Simply pop out
and purchase a chic midi skirt (we’ve spied similar at Zara and Tibi)
and you’re good to go. Flatforms and a cuddle clutch spells Scandi
blogger cool, or go the Palermo way and wear tonal heels and a metallic
clutch.

Take On Texture

If the idea of a full white-out feels a little clinical, then adding
pattern and texture is a good way to soften the look. This season Navajo
details appear white-on-white and laser-cut finishes are favoring blanc
de blanc too. Escape the easy route (because we can all slip on a LWD)
and team mismatched fabrics together. We love this runway look from
Isabel Marant, but if this isn’t on-budget, Whistles
has a more purse-friendly take on these incredible trousers. Look to
H&M and Mes Demoiselles for similar tops and you’re set. Natural
nails, tanned toes and sun-kissed hair will polish off the look.
