Summery and versatile, so wear it with confidence
White is summery and versatile and can be teamed with just about anything in your wardrobe, whether that’s a t-shirt with a mini skirt, a white blouse with a pair of jeans, or even an angelic-looking maxi dress on its own.
A complete white outfit may be a bit much, but it can certainly turn heads, as many celebrities have demonstrated. If you haven’t the confidence to wear a white blouse and a pair of white linen trousers, you could start by experimenting with one item at a time.
A white t-shirt and a light denim jacket with a pair of aviator shades will put you ahead in the fashion stakes this summer, as will a pair of white culottes with a bright crop top and a smart pair of sandals or wedges.
But should you wear white if you have pale skin? Well, there is no reason not to, but white may complement sun-kissed appearances better. If you feel a little on the pale side, there are plenty of self-tanning options from high street stores, or you could book an appointment with a beauty therapist to ensure the coverage looks professional.
A look for summer is the white maxi dress
A perfect look for summer if you want to go all out in white is the maxi dress. The white maxi dress at AX Paris will ensure you stay ahead in fashion, whether you’re at the beach or enjoying a relaxed meal out. If the evenings have a slight chill in the air, a light blazer can work wonders with it.
According to the Daily Mail Padma Lakshmi layered a biker jacket over a white dress when she was on a fashion panel in New York.
You can adopt the angelic look with some glamorous white lace, the floaty bohemian look with woven silk, or a dress made from broderie anglaise. Match the outfits with a white designer handbag or a small purse or clutch bag. Choosing your ensemble needn’t be hard. There are plenty of hot trends out there for summer, and if you spot your favourite celebrity in an outfit you’d love to be seen in, go online and try to match the items up with pieces from high street collections.
