White On White: Who said white was only for occasions ?


I’m sure you’ve all noticed that the white on white trend is one of the biggest of this summer. The trend has been seen on the catwalks in the past with designers such as Ralph Lauren and Phillip Lim dressing their models in the fashionable hue. Here’s how you can perfect the look.

Summer Look

With the abundance of sunshine we’ve been getting lately, it’s important to keep cool as well as looking cool too. Long skirts in a brilliant white coupled with a crop top in the same shade looks summery and you can achieve different looks by changing the length and style of your skirts. Maxis,

A-line, and flowing skirts are ideal for summer. The crop top teamed with high waisted garments is a perfect way to reveal a subtle strip of skin without exposing too much.

Boy Fit

If the girly look isn’t your thing, the white on white trend still caters to all styles. Boyfriend fit and ripped jeans in white are edgy, and you can’t go wrong when you pair them with loose white tees and oversized shirts. Play around with footwear to give the look a distinct finish.

If you need a formal outfit, white works perfectly. Keep cuts structured and sharp to create a smart look. A blazer instantly gives an outfit a polished look, and the white would keep it elegant. Don’t forget that a crisp white shirt looks great on dark skin tones.

Textures & Layering

To really get creative with white, think about using different textures and layering them on top of each other. Lace, silk, cotton, mesh, chiffon – there’s so much to experiment with! My favourite right now is sheer white mesh. The transparency of the material means you can throw it on over any plain white vest and it immediately vamps up the outfit.

As any girl knows, accessories are the perfect way to complete an outfit. You can go all the way and have a white nail to finish off the look, or metallic colours such as silver compliment white really well. White backpacks are gorgeous but for something more feminine, check out some white clutches.
