Breezy, crisp and wonderfully lightweight, summer whites are everywhere for SS17. From dresses and jumpsuits to staple denim, we reveal how to wear the white-on-white trend for sun-drenched days ahead.
To The Beach
All-white ensembles are the perfect cover-up for warmer climes, ensuring you stay cool and chic in the heat. Take on the trend with a light cotton shirt to throw on over your bikini or swimsuit, styling it with linen-blend crop trousers for a relaxed finish. Complete the beach-to-bar look with a wide-brim hat.
Summer whites also lend themselves well to your everyday wardrobe. Simply swap your trusty blue skinnies for white denim that’s cropped just above the ankle, teaming it with a pretty lace tee. Break up the all-white palette with a soft pink clutch and a pair of nude espadrille wedges – we love that this pair comes with wrap-around ribbons.
Whether you’re holidaying abroad or on home ground, a white sun dress has a spot in every summer wardrobe. For a new twist on the getaway classic, opt for an embroidered mid-length style with a knotted bow on the bodice. Finish the look with a straw hat.
If the thought of wearing the trend from head-to-toe seems a little daunting (or impractical), then there is a more subtle way to introduce summer whites into your warm weather rotation. Try a striped wide-leg jumpsuit in crisp white linen, styling it with a blue denim jacket, metallic silver sandals and a simple navy bag for a gentle dose of colour.
