fashion TREND ALERT: White Out


The most iconic summer trend is here and it is louder and bolder than ever before.  Like most summers, it is vital to add some crisp whites to your wardrobe.

A crisp white button up shirt or a pair of white denims has been the way to go in the past. However, this season’s take on summer whites brought a fresh spin to the classic seasonal trend. For the summer of 2019 it felt like every designer had at least one all-white ensemble rocking the runway and making it known that this is THE trend to try this summer. From classic white sheath dresses and feminine A-line skirts to all-white suiting options and extremely trendy jumpsuits, the key to walk away with is to make sure you incorporate an all-white ensemble into your summer wardrobe at some point.

The best way to rock this look is to layer it with different textures. For example, Off-White created a very on-trend sheer dress layered over a white crop top and white panties bringing a beach vibe to the look.  For instant elevation they threw on a lightweight white trench coat and belted it, adding structure and shape to the multi-layers of white. Carry out the western trend from spring and become inspired by the boho chic ensemble Jonathan Simkhai created. Notice how he used an oversized brown belt to help break up the all-white look while also adding depth. Keep things minimal and effortless by investing in a white jumpsuit similar to the resort -inspired jumpsuit Chanel featured on the runway. All you need with a white jumpsuit is a chic pair of white sandals or flats and you’re certain to turn heads everywhere you go this summer.

For Men:

White on white on white is a total contrast to the typical black on black we typically see for menswear. However, this light color is not only sleek, but incredibly easy to style. Keep things dapper in an all-white suit similar to both Boss and Balenciaga. While Balenciaga kept things a bit more on the oversized side, Boss had suiting that was fitted, keeping the look elevated. Become inspired by Tom Ford’s take on the white-out trend for a more casual vibe.  With an edgy white moto jacket and white slacks, this is the perfect transitional piece when headed from the office to happy hour.  Whether you are planning to go golfing, to the beach, or to a boat party, the all-white trend is a perfect way to step up your style game without stepping too far out of your comfort zone.
