When the days are long and the heat is rising, a wardrobe of crisp, cool whites is the perfect refreshment. Whether you’re by the beach or pounding the city streets, an all-white outfit solves a few key problems: you don’t have to think too much about coordinating the various components of your look and even if you break a sweat, you’ll still look put together.
An all-white outfit provides a clean aesthetic that can be casual as a coordinated lounge set or elevated with a mixture of textures. Even with a minimalist, monochromatic palette, you’ll find endlessly creative ways to wear the colour across occasions, price points, and style sensibilities.
With summer in full swing, there’s no better time to invest in hot weather staples. Explore some of our all-time favourites, here.
Summer Staples To Save The Day
While there are plenty of bold, bright, and compelling trends for the taking this summer (think peppy pink hues, micro-minis, and crop tops), we never want to overlook the reliable and versatile basics that are the building blocks of our wardrobes. This season, our trusty staples are not getting overlooked.
In fact, the latest iterations of so-called “boring” basics possess a sartorial strength in their simplicity when worn alone and serve as an anchor when worn with statement pieces.
Between our ethnic and western wardrobes, there comes a day when we’d love to rock the best of both worlds. And with the white hot luxe trend in question, the possibilities are endless!
The key to pulling off the trend this summer is to play with textures, layering, and volume, which will keep your look interesting. Also, don’t be afraid of breaking up the look with contrasting accessories, from black sandals to gold jewellery. If an all-white outfit feels a little daunting, mix it up by adding buttery neutrals.
Slay Summer in a Saree
The stark sunlight and hot weather call for breezy and lightweight ensembles – that would stay fresh and breathable for the whole day – whether we are out managing chores, sharing a cup of coffee with friends, or putting our mind to test at work.
And when it comes to choosing the ideal wardrobe for all these moments, nothing beats the grace and charm of super light and summery sarees!
Save Room for Accessories
If your drawers are overflowing with accessories, and you’re only looking to make one update, consider going all white.
The colour gives you that unexpected pop because it’s bright and fresh, but also understated. In moments that you prefer to play it safe with a nude accessory, reach for your whites instead! Whether it be a clutch, a bracelet, a scarf or even a pair of earrings, you can always turn to a white accessory for a streamlined minimalistic look.
All-white clothes are meant to be simple. Sure, summer may be the season of maxi dresses and flip flops, but it is also undoubtedly the season of white hot luxe. And these all-white ensembles are classics that aren’t going away anytime soon. Or probably ever. So it’s time we get with it, after all.
