Summertime is my time to shine and one of the ways I love getting my summer vibes on is by wearing a lot of white.
Now, I know there are some people who will say they can’t possibly wear white. Their too pale and it will look horrible on them. To that I say, under a shade that’s most flattering to you and maybe incorporate a hint of color closer to your neck – maybe a printed satin scarf, to warm up your face. My philosophy is, don’t be afraid of white, embrace the chic. Also walk with a stain removing because there will enviably be some spillage (coffee, tea, ink marks, subway or car grease). Accept it and rock on!
I’ve put together five of my fave summer all white looks below. I’ve shopped my closet with pieces ranging from $24 – $89 and that I’ve owned for years. I’m all for low budget buying but spending on pieces that are classic cut and that I know I can wear for years (despite it costing less). One new piece is a replacement pair of white linen trousers I bought on sale at Banana Republic (at 50% off). I think owning a pair of wide-legged trousers or denim is a must-have Item for a diverse wardrobe and probably a topic for another post!
So, here we go! My 5 all white outfits for the summer that I hope will inspire you to try it out for yourself!
1. White Denim Skirt
We all know that the blue denim skirt is a must-have summer outfit staple but what about adding a white denim skirt to your wardrobe. A denim skirt in a pencil-skirt is ideal wear-to-work look or you can throw on a white tank top and a pair of slides with a wide belt and head to weekend brunch! Love this skirt (shopping my closet – this skirt is about 3 years old from Joe Fresh and cost about $29 (the top is Joe Fresh too). I wear it ever summer).
2. The White Shorts
I love the length of a walking short. It’s short and sexy. You can dress this up with a white blazer and heels or throw on a t-shirt and sneakers. It’s an easy, go-to all white summer look.
3. The White Trouser
Love this look for the casual ease of the wide-legged trouser. It makes you feel like you should be vacationing in a European city, looking cool, sophisticated and chic. Just try not to spill the espresso.
4. The LWD – Little White Dress
Nothing screams summertime ready like a little white summer dress. The white dress is a classic must-have in your summer wardrobe. You can opt for short, mid-length or a long boho-chic style depending on your personal style.
5. White Denim Jeans
And finally, if you love your skinny jeans, invest in a white pair that can take you from summer into fall (yes, it looks fantastic with a navy blazer, cognac boots, and stripped button-down shirt) and if you are one of the brave ones that will rock white denim in winter then you’re covered!
Hope these practical, real life low-key all white looks give you some outfit inspirations this summer!
