Sure, denim and florals during summer is fine, but bringing out the white in your wardrobe is mandatory when warmer weather hits. I know what you're thinking – bright whites and spillages go hand in hand. True, but who doesn't like playing with fire occasionally?
Sometimes with white, simplicity is key – a small sprinkling of brilliant white staples will elevate dreary neutrals and amplify pops of colour.
When worn with everyday pieces, slotting in hints of white is a piece of cake. Here's how I grabbed the trend by the sartorial horns...
Victoria Beckham dished out iterations of all-white with her trademark tailoring and splashes of punchy red woven into camis for spring/summer '19. I took a more informal approach to the trend, leading with this ASOS milkmaid puff-sleeve blouse paired with these mega popular straight-leg Weekday jeans (they're totes nailing denim this season btw). All topped off with a sugary UO bucket hat and coral heels for some added oomph.
Refresh Your Basics
Marques'Almeida speaks to my soul. When I came across this knotted gem, I was besotted – it's edgier than a basic white tee but still ticks that classic staple box. Chanel gave us a glimpse of elongated, chic capri leggings last season and so following suit, I popped on these adorable Laura Ashley x UO cycling shorts with '90s-style vinyl platforms. A tad too Spice Girls for you? Black thong sandals would also work for a minimalist approach.
From Saks Potts to Gucci, olive, sage and every other shade of green is having a moment. How to move it forward for SS19? Slime, of course! Go battery acid green and pair with white for contrast. This prairie-style, scalloped Warehouse dress is the ideal pairing, coupled with a pair of Vapormax and a gingham tote. Don green socks for extra emphasis.
