Summer Style Guide: Sophisticated White
When it comes to summer fashion, there’s a trend that keeps coming back, and that is flaunting the color white. There’s no more sophisticated color than a crisp white tone, and when it comes to showing off a tan, there’s nothing better!
If you want to wear white to achieve a sophisticated, summer look, you need to be thinking along the lines of tailored, white chino shorts or crinkle-free linen trousers with a white shirt tucked in. Accessorize the look with a tan belt, tan over the shoulder bag and chunky, wedge heels. Go for bold, statement jewelery in gold with a big pair of bug sunglasses and a larger than life sun hat. The key to accessorizing well is to go for texture: match a straw hat with an opulent gold necklace.
If sporting white all over is too much for you, then take one piece and focus on that. For example, you could team up a pair of white linen shorts with a delicate, floral top such as a Paul & Joe blouse in shades of coral or yellow. Otherwise, you could try tucking one a Philip Lim top into a pair of indigo skinny jeans. Silky blouse tops look perfect when tucked into a pair of jeans with a statement necklace or skinny belt tied around the hips.
White is the perfect color for a vacation, whether you’re planning on sunning yourself on the beach, cruising around the Mediterranean or taking a city break. It’s a versatile color that suits all skin tones and looks great teamed up with coral, navy, tan or shades of pastel. This season is seeing a trend towards a muted color palette with white being worn with shades of stone, ochre and browns.
