ALL IN THE DETAILS: White Hot

ALL IN THE DETAILS: White Hot

White on white is just one of those crisp summer combos that I can’t get enough of. Besides the fact that it brings out your golden tan, it makes you look and feel nothing short of angelic. The key to any monochromatic ensemble is the perfect compilation of little details that make each piece pop.

This Fashionista consistently maintains a balance between her simple aesthetic and the details she incorporates into her day-to-day wardrobe. She put together this wistful all- white ensemble with a little pop of pale blue and the most perfect leather choker I’ve ever laid my eyes on. Her crop top has the most delicate details—it features small stitching elements throughout the body with a band of crochet lace around the bottom. These small details help break up her monochromatic outfit by putting a level of textural interest between her top and her high-waisted denim shorts. She throws in a pale blue, distressed chambray shirt to the mix that she can either put on or tie around her waist to create a little pop of color and have a lightweight, layering element. Beyond her crisp clothing is her gorgeous choker—it features a dainty three-charm detail attached to bright white leather, in combination with the layering illusion created by the attached natural stone pendant. This Fashionista is the designer and creator behind this killer HEIR Raleigh piece, but if you can’t get a hold of one of her handcrafted accessories, a gorgeous white lace choker from Vanessa Mooney will do the trick! A choker like this one makes for the most striking summertime accessory and is the perfect detail element to top off this fresh, bright look.

How To: Getting the perfect monochromatic look is a total breeze whether you’re going for a chic all-black look or a bright white one like this Fashionista. The key to keeping these monochromatic outfits fun is details! Opt for tops and bottoms that are made out of a different fabrics, one of which has an interesting detail like embroidery, beading, lace or cutouts—creating a little textural variety goes a long way. If you feel like the completely unicolor ensemble just doesn’t do it for you, add in a small splash of color with your accessories, shoes or a little layering element like this Fashionista did here. Then all that’s left is to finish your look off with some fun layered jewelry—the ’90s child in me is tickled by the comeback of chokers, so I have to recommend choosing from the plethora of options that are available!
