3 Genius Ways to Wear White on White This Summer

by - Monday, August 20, 2018

White on white- it’s a classic Summer look and done right you’re pretty much guaranteed to turn heads. I’ve worn a multitude of white on white this Summer and here’s a little secret as to why- it’s an easy combination to nail without much time thinking.

When I’m putting together an all-white look I keep three simple ‘rules’ in my head and integrate at least two of them every time:
  1. Experiment with textures and fabric. Interesting fabrics and textures are a great way to make an all-white look more sophisticated. Probably my favorite Summer fabric to do this with is linen, hence the top in outfit #1 and shorts in outfit #2.
  2. Introduce accessories. You can think of white on white as the perfect blank canvas- it’s fine to accessorize more than you normally would! A belt, for instance, is a great way to define your waist and give your silhouette shape when wearing all white.
  3. Choose pieces with thoughtful details. They can be subtle, but trust me these details will make the look. In outfit #1 the frayed edge on the linen top + angled raw hem to the jeans take everything up a notch. On that note, if your bottom half is going to be denim, picking the right pair of jeans is another important detail (see this post for how to find the right pair of jeans for your own body type).

Outfit 1. Rules used:
1. Play with fabrics/textures (linen top)
2. Introduce accessories (hat, belt)
3. Go for pieces with detail (raw hem jeans, frayed hem top)

Outfit 2. Rules used:
1. Play with fabrics/textures (linen top)
2. Introduce accessories (necklace, belt)

Outfit 3. Rules used:
1. Play with fabrics/textures (semi-sheer knit top)
2. Introduce accessories (statement earrings)

And there you have it. Let me know in a comment below if you found these rules helpful. And as always thank you so much for taking the time to read and be a part of our Fifteen Minutes to Flawless community.
