Don't be afraid to experiment with different textures and fabrics, changing up the texture of your white pieces adds variety and interest to your all-white outfit. And with the right pairings, your white pieces can take you from summer days to summer nights with ease.
There's something about white bottoms that feel fresh and elevated during the summer months. From breezy skirts to tailored shorts, white bottoms can add sophistication to even the most casual outfits. Pair a white linen skirt with a colorful tank top for a tropical vibe, or dress up a pair of white denim jeans with a statement blouse and heels for a chic dinner date look.
But why stop at just skirts and shorts? White pants, whether cropped or wide-leg, can make a stylish statement. Pair them with a tucked-in tee and sneakers for a casual daytime look, or dress them up with a silk blouse and sandals for a more polished outfit.
From casual to formal occasions, white can be a great option for a variety of events.
If you’re headed to the beach, consider a flowy white maxi dress or maxi skirt with minimal accessories for a breezy and elegant look. Alternatively, a white jumpsuit paired with statement earrings and heels can be a chic and sophisticated option for a cocktail party.
For a more formal event, a white blazer paired with a sleek black dress or tailored pants can create a powerful and polished look. And for a business casual meeting, a white and blue combination is a classic and timeless outfit.
The key to dressing up with white is to choose the right pieces and accessories to elevate your look. Consider incorporating metallic or colorful accessories to add a pop of personality to your outfit.
White accessories are not only trendy and stylish, but they also have a way of making any outfit look fresh.
From statement earrings to oversized sun hats, white accessories are the perfect way to add a touch of elegance to any outfit. A white tote bag or clutch is perfect for carrying your summer essentials, while white sunglasses offer both style and protection from the sun's rays.
The classic combination of a white tee and denim shorts is a go-to for many during the summer months. It's a simple yet stylish look that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. For a casual daytime look, pair a white cotton tee with high-rise denim shorts and sneakers. Add a statement belt to cinch in your waist and complete the look.
For a more elevated take on the white tee and denim combo, switch out the shorts for a denim skirt and add some sneakers, wedges or strappy heels. This look is perfect for a date night or a summer pool party.
Whether you prefer a classic one-piece or a two-piece white swimwear is always in style.
When it comes to styling a white swimsuit, less is more. Keep your accessories minimal and let the swimsuit be the focal point of your outfit. A simple straw hat and a pair of oversized sunglasses are all you need to complete the look. Similarly, a white cover-up can be easily dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Pair it with sandals and a beach tote during the day, or dress it up with a pair of wedges and statement jewelry for an evening out.
From classic sneakers to strappy sandals, there's a white shoe for every occasion. Pairing them with your favorite summer dress or shorts and a tank top can instantly elevate your look.
Not to mention, white shoes also have the added benefit of making your legs look longer and leaner. I always have a pair of white leather sneakers on hand as they go with everything. The same with white sandals. I love this pair that’s a great dupe for the coveted Hérmes Oran sandals that leapt into popularity over twenty years ago. As you can imagine this sandal has a hefty price tag, selling at $660, which is why I chose this leather sandal available at Tuckernuck in white as well as cognac brown.
If you're feeling daring and want to elevate your summer style, why not try mixing and matching different shades of white? The key to this trend is to play with textures and layering. Try layering a white denim jacket over a creamy white dress. The possibilities are endless and can add depth and dimension to your outfit. With a little care and creativity, you can pull off this monochromatic look with ease.
But before you dive into the white-on-white trend, remember to keep your whites looking clean and fresh. Invest in a good whitening solution or keep baby wipes handy to quickly wipe away any dirt or scuffs. I always bring my Tide To-Go pen wherever I go. It’s saved me more times than I can count.
One way to incorporate color into your white outfits is to add a statement accessory. A bold necklace, a colorful scarf, or a pair of bright shoes can instantly transform an all-white outfit. Play around with different colors and patterns to find a combination that works for you.
Another option is to pair white with pastel colors for a softer, more understated look. Colors like pale pink, mint green, and light blue can complement white beautifully and add a touch of femininity to your outfit.
Try color-blocking your white outfit with a bright, contrasting color. Pair white pants with a bold red top or wear a bright yellow skirt with a white blouse. The key is to keep the rest of your outfit simple and let the bold colors take center stage.
Don't be afraid to experiment with different color combinations and find a look that feels fresh, bold, and uniquely you.
