Memorial Day is the official start of summer. While some are excited about heading to barbecues and dipping in pools, I get excited because I finally get to pull out my white jeans again. Summer is the best time of year to wear white because it is so crisp, clean and fresh. Head-to-toe white looks have become a hot trend for this summer after making a statement in several designers’ spring 2015 ready-to-wear collections.
One of my favorite collections was the Ralph Lauren spring 2015 ready-to-wear. I loved the vibrantly colored gowns, and I was obsessed with the jewel details in several of the looks. I live for a little bling! There was also an abundance of military green pieces. What stuck out the most to me were the looks that were all-white. Jewels and bright colors make a loud statement but head-to-toe white cannot be ignored. White exudes confidence and has a clean sophistication.
I translated this runway trend into everyday wear by pairing cropped white jeans with a white lace shirt. While white makes quite a statement on its own, I can never be without a little sparkle in my outfit. I love the way white contrasts with gold. They balance each other well, and they both equally stand out. For accessories, I wore a gold bracelets and a gold sparkle kate spade watch. To add a little bit of color to the look, I wore blue jewel-toned earrings. My burlap clutch with the white compass pulls from both the gold in my accessories and the white of the outfit. I also wear a white pearl headband and continue the all-white trend in my hair. Finally, for shoes I wear gold sparkle flats.
I love this outfit because I feel fearless in white. White looks so chic and put together. I made the look my own by adding a little sparkle. The look is so simple yet sophisticated at the same time!
