Ways To Wear Summer Whites

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

Wendy Wide Brim Hat, £17 | Riga Tie Front Shirt, £29 | Imelda Wide Leg Ankle Grazer Trouser, £45

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.

On Holiday

Adriel Embroidered Sun Dress, £69 | Samara Straw Hat, £17

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.  

Day Trip

Esme Denim Jacket, £69 | Clara Linen Stripe Jumpsuit, £59 | Destiny Leather Camera Bag, £49 | Katy Sporty Sandals, £29

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.

    I love the white trend, been wearing Monsoon White striped linen trousers and white cropped jeans the last couple of weeks, style them with Broderick Anglaise top, pastel brogues or white baggy off the shoulder jumper, white vest and animal print flats. Stylish and trendy.
