Already accustomed to incorporating pure, white pieces into my wardrobe thanks to my hometown’s victorious 2013 NBA win (Go Heat!), fashion critics and gurus may argue that the trend is a recurring summer style, not solely a result of a national championship title. While many South Floridians may conclude that nothing rings in a summer season quite like continuing a “White Hot” streak, the reappearance of white denim in the fashion community is a sure sign of a summer in full swing.
With July behind us, it’s a safe bet that Fashionistas and Fashionistos everywhere are crying out for some light pieces… And let’s just say our elementary school teachers didn’t teach us that darks absorb heat, while lights reflect it for no reason.
Proving an appropriate alternative to tried true blues, white denim pieces serve as the most versatile summer staple. Instantly transforming what may be an over-worn top into a newfound gem, swapping out dark jeans for lighter tones repurposes and gives new life to old favorites.
Pairing crisp white bottoms with blossoming floral colors, this Fashionista undoubtedly injected sharp contrast into her casual summertime look. Opting for a halter, this Fashionista created a look that can easily be transformed from day to night by a simple shoe swap. Completing the look with classic accessories, this Fashionista highlighted the simplicity of summer style and adorned her look with minimal metallic accessories, Tory Burch flats and sunglasses – nothing screams summer quite like aviator shades.
For a monochromatic take on the luminous trend, pair whites together. Head to toe white radiates confidence, while simultaneously playing up even the most barely-there tans. It is, however, important to distinguish differences in white hues and Fashionistas should stray from mixing together ivory, eggshell and pure white.
Keep looks light and bright this summer. Carrying a Tide-To-Go pen in your bag is never a bad idea, either.
