|White was all over the runway for SS 2011|
In addition to runway and designer inspiration, I saw monochromatic neutrals and all-white ensembles in go-to stores such as Gap, J. Crew, and Banana Republic!
|White Forever 21 Skinny jeans - $10 (FC)|
White J Crew tee - $7 (FC)
White Loft short sleeve cardigan - gift, Mom
Brown vintage Dooney & Bourke - $40 (FC)
Brown vintage brown belt - $2 (thrifted)
Brown vintage sandals - $8 (FC)
Many of my friends have expressed that an all-white outfit is quite daunting. My advice would be:
-Anchor the look down with neutrals - Brown looks great with white and is a natural choice for the Spring season. Black is another great and easy option!
-Utilize statement pieces - Monochromatic looks really lend themselves to making a statement with accessories. I chose this funky multicolor beaded necklace but the options are endless: big, colorful earrings; a fun scarf; or a really crazy belt would all look great!
-Bleach is your friend - If you are nervous that you will get stains somewhere on your outfit, remember, the beauty of "white" is that it can be bleached!
-Start simple - If white seems too much, try the monochromatic look in a color that you feel really confident in (tans and browns, black, or any color of the rainbow). And remember to play with texture!
Does an all-white ensemble sound like something you would try? Let me know what you think or post your own look in the comments!
