Gone are the dreary days of winter, and it’s time to refresh your spring wardrobe. Though dark wardrobe staples often serve as a style security blanket, it’s easy to get stuck in a rut. Shake up your routine this season with a monochromatic (or nearly monochromatic) white look that is perfect for festivals, work and even date night.
Heading to your favorite music festival this spring? Channel your inner rock goddess with an ethereal white maxi dress. A flowing white maxi dress is a comfortable and effortless way to look feminine and keep cool on hot days. Not only will the breezy fabric make the sun more tolerable when you’re front row, the length will keep you covered when things cool down at night. Pair a lacy white maxi with boho-inspired statement jewelry and a pair of gladiator sandals, and you’ll be the best dressed at the fest.
A monochromatic white look can breathe new life into your work look as well. Crisp lines of a structured Columnist pant or culottes look even sharper in stark white, adding instant polish and sophistication. Add a light, blush-toned jacket for a pop of color, and finish the look with a nude pair of heels. Heading out after work? Go effortlessly from desk to drinks by adding a bright statement necklace and an edgy moto jacket.
Not totally convinced that all-white is the way to go with your wardrobe? Take baby steps toward the trend by pairing blush, champagne and nude tones with your ivory pieces. Add texture or feminine details for serious ladylike potential.
The LBD has long been a date night do, but an all-over white look could be a fresh alternative. A bright white look can be just as versatile and sexy as your favorite black dress. Pair a strappy body suit with a denim skirt for a sleek silhouette. Add a drapey taupe jacket to pull the look together, and you’ll definitely be asked on a second date.
Play up the “blank canvas” effect of an all-white look with the perfect accessories. Add an it-girl vibe to an all white outfit with brightly colored booties or instantly lengthen your legs with nude sandals or pumps. Finish with a structured bag, and you’ll be on everyone’s best-dressed list.
