How We’re Wearing White In The Summer
A little white on white never hurt anybody. Looking for the perfect white dress for the season? We've got an entire cartful.| July 18, 2017
I’m only just realising that I’ve been wearing a lot of white lately. That time in Seoul, then in London and Paris, and then recently, almost top-to-toe white except for a denim shirt from a certain high-street-high-end collaboration. Today again, I found myself in white, but a little more summer appropriate and feminine this time. (The dress is Exhibit, which you can shop here.) Everyone knows white is a classic colour that never goes out of style – like how everyone needs a white shirt – but the sudden preference for almost top-to-toe white? I’m not so sure myself. Maybe it’s the crazy sun, or the heat, or because seeing white helps me clear my mind enough to forget about the heat.
With this much white on, the best way to style it is to go all out. Keeping to the summer mode, I style this puff-sleeved number with white sandals with a white wall as my back-up. Because today was also errand day, my bag is a little larger than usual. It’s not white, but that golden brown definitely glows under the sun.
If the past weeks are any indication – and if this heat continues – I’m probably going to continue wearing white quite a bit. What say you?
