Nothing says luxury more than an all white outfit. The crispness and sophistication it exudes is a refreshing change from basic black. Lightness and sleekness are inherent when putting together a neutral look. Perhaps the impracticality of an all white ensemble adds to the allure of sporting this trend. However, wearer beware, you maybe inline for a hefty dry cleaning bill. If you are intimated by the thought of layering white on white, you can get the same feel with ivory or cream. Mixing up the textures of a monochromatic palette adds depth to your look and will help when transitioning from season to season. Incorporate wool, cashmere and cable knits for winter and linens and silks for spring or summer.
The woman pictured in today’s post is a great example of how to work this trend. She’s mixed up the textures by opting for a white leather jacket, gold belt and snake skin clutch. Her black suede pumps anchors her look beautifully. That’s one thing to remember when accessorising an all white ensemble, stick to metallics and darker neutrals. This will ensure your look is grounded and saves you from looking too matchy-matchy.
