Happy July 4th if you’re in the US. We hope you’re having a wonderfully relaxing day, and enjoying good eats and great weather with friends and family. For those interested in a dressing formula today, I’m sharing all-white outfit ideas for high Summer. If they inspire you, that’s fabulous. If you’d rather admire them from afar, that’s fab too.
I enjoy wearing bright white in the Summer, and wear white separates together too. Personally, I prefer it when my whites match and there is texture in one or both of the white items. But don’t mind when my whites mismatch. I don’t usually wear two flat white items together and leave it at that. I either add a gold bag and footwear, or throw in bright shoes and a matching bag. Sometimes I wear white or off-white shoes too.
I’ve worn my textured white eyelet polo shirt with white jeans several times. I have a new white eyelet shirt I can wear with my white bottoms too. My white eyelet dress works well with a gold complement. Here are the exact components, and I have shown off the outfits in the forum.
On to some outfit ideas.
1. White Sweater and Skirt
An oversized white open-weave sweater is combined with a flared white skirt. It’s semi-tucked to hint at a defined waistline. The open-weave sweater provides textural interest, which breaks up the expanse of white. The skirt comes with a built-in taupe webbing belt, which I would liked to see match the footwear. Instead, black slides complete the outfit. To my eye they would have worked better if the model had black hair, or there was a black bag to even out their heaviness. Or you may prefer the look as is!
2. White Dress
A breezy unstructured white shirtdress is combined with matching white slides. The all-white look is completed and broken up with an orangey cognac complement made up of bag, earrings, and tortoiseshell sunglasses.
3. White Lace Top and Pants
A pair of white lightweight soft and wide cotton cropped pants is combined with a fluid embroidered cotton top that visually resembles lace. The pattern provides textural interest. The shorter length of the top and scalloped hem’s edge offset some of the volume of the pants. Tan platform espadrille slides with a matching raffia bag gently embellish the colour palette, and provide further textural interest.
4. White Textured Polo Shirt and Shorts
Last, a lacey white knitted polo shirt is combined with a pair of white shorts. The pattern of the lace gives the white-out some visual interest. An ecru rope belt adds further texture to the outfit. A complement of cognac handbag and slides are the earthy finishing touch. Add jewellery, eyewear, hat and watch as desired.
