MAD ABOUT HUE: WHITE HOT
When we think of all-white outfits, we imagine ourselves on a sailboat preparing to dock at the marina. We picture a small island town somewhere on the Mediterranean: outdoor seating, a crisp white wine, a light breeze. Heaven.
Why do these things go together? Because there is something both extraordinarily simple and extraordinarily luxurious about the color white. Simply put, nothing beats white when it comes to high impact elegance.
While white’s great all year round, summer’s the ideal time for it. And it’s surprisingly versatile. Worn on its own, it’s pleasingly minimalist. Mix it with black and you’ve got an on-trend color combo that goes great with a touch of metallic. Wear with pops of color (some bright red, a dash of apple green) and you’ve got yourself a classically preppy look. Even just incorporating a white shoe into an otherwise colorful outfit turns the style dial up to ten.
Just think – white pumps with a pair of skinny jeans, a creamy blazer, a men’s watch and a statement necklace? Or try a pair of white low-key espadrilles with high-waisted shorts, some white bangles and a matching bag. Your sailboat awaits.
