How To Wear White This Summer
No matter the time of year, or the occasion, if you’ve followed me for more than five minutes you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of wearing white, but it’s during these warmer months that I’m rarely out of the neutral shade! I think it looks so feminine and often very expensive and flatters most skin tones. It represents peace and serenity, which we all need a little more of! That said, it can be difficult to style and maintain so I thought I’d share my top tips with you all.
With white being so chic, it’s a great colour to wear to the office. A white shirt is perfect for pairing with a pair of pointed mules and a blazer for work, or equally a pair of espadrilles and a raffia tote for a dressed down weekend look with a white playsuit (like my River Island fave!).
This super affordable white dress (pictured) is another perfect piece for summer days. The lightweight fabric and ruffles mean it’ll be soft and breezy in the heat, as well as looking effortless. White is so good at enhancing a tan too, so ideal for warmer months.
White is perfect for investment pieces as it’s a classic, neutral colour but that doesn’t mean you can’t find amazing pieces on the high street! Ensure you pick good quality pieces and timeliness silhouettes and you’ll be good for seasons to come. I paired this dress with a luxe bag such as my Prada basket bag (pictured here) or my Dior Book Tote from the Catwalk Club (renting luxury bags is THE way forward!) and instantly a dress which cost under £40 instantly looks luxe.
I love pairing white with nudes and pink tones. It also works so well with tans, all of which are perfect for summer and really easy to style up. I chose to pair my white dress with my tan Chloe sandals for this look; they’re turning out to be my most worn shoes of the season!
With all that white, you’re going to need to make sure you can keep it clean! Generally my tip would just be to invest in a good stain remover spray (I use Vanish), a de bobbler and a good lint roller. A white survival kit! I also recommend doing your make up before you get dressed to avoid any powder mishaps. And no touching your face! It’s something we all do accidentally but can be so detrimental to both your skin and your outfits!
Lastly, something I think we should all own – white sandals! They’re so versatile and perfect with so many outfits. They’ll be a piece you get so much wear out of every summer! From designer sandals like my usual Valentino faves, or affordable options from highstreet stores like River Island.
