There are many ways to create an all white outfit in the Spring and Summer. Remember to choose your favourite white. It’s optical white for some, or ivory, cream, tan, bone, or even a very pale pearl grey for others. It’s also fine to mix different whites. They don’t need to match perfectly, unless that’s your preference.
You can choose white footwear to match the outfit, or go for something like a metallic, grey, tan, or blush. Rich browns, and animal print can work too. Black shoes might bookend your hair.
Here are some fabulous all white looks.
I LOVE crisp, all white outfits, and do a version every Spring and Summer. Sometimes I mix white, cream, and off-white, and sometimes I match the whites. I use white jeans as bottoms, and add a white top, bag, and shoes. Sometimes I wear a blush bag and shoes. I hope to find the right white dress and pants suit at some point.
Here are four specific outfit ideas.
1. White Suit
Here’s a beautiful white linen suit with on-trend pleated pants, waist tie, and classic blazer to match. The simple layering camisole is white too. The extra long length of the slouchy pants looks great in theory, but they are awfully impractical street sweepers. The length will slip under your feet as you stride too. My suggestion is to wear them a little shorter. White jeans and shorts are another option. I can see a very light silvery grey or tan camisole work well too. Brown loafers or mules break up the white, and a bag to match is a nice option.
2. White Dress
Wearing a Summery white dress is an easy way to wear white from head to toe. I like the textured fabric of this one because it adds interest to the expanse of flat white, and makes the fabric more substantial. The white ankle-strap toe sandals are a perfect match with the dress, and bookend the model’s platinum hair.
3. Casual White
A very light tan or ecru pair of bottoms are a great way to wear ‘white’ bottoms if optical white is not your thing. Here a pair of tan culottes is paired with an open-weave polo shirt that’s layered over a white camisole. The white slides match the top, and a straw hat matches the culottes. I vote white or tan bag.
4. White Layers
Here’s a look with white layers, and the whites match and are textured. An oversized open-weave swingy sweater is worn over an untucked white tank top. The cropped length and asymmetrical hem of the top showcase a hint of waist and hip definition, which tempers its volume. The tops are combined with a pair of very baggy and wide white pants. These are at a safe and easier to walk in length that won’t sweep the floor. The volume of the white items make them more opaque. White heeled sandals complete the fun arty and architectural look. Add jewellery, watch, headgear and eyewear as desired.
