How To Wear All White

When it’s warm outside, some dare to bare. Today I challenge you to dare to wear … all white.

With such a blank and quite frankly vulnerable canvas, this can be a daunting prospect. The fear of potential stains and the subsequent conundrums of their removal can prevent us from experimenting with this neutral and universal colour.

The good news is, who doesn’t look good in white and by embracing the shade you will certainly make a statement. It is just a matter of experimenting with the colour to see what works for you. Perhaps you’re more comfortable pairing with silvers or creams to ease the transition or perhaps you prefer to keep the look understated. Perhaps for you an all white outfit isn’t complete without an equally bold red lip. That’s the beauty of wearing all white, through its simplicity you are able to infuse your personality.

Whatever your style choices may be, follow these tricks to elevate your all white ensemble:


Given its ability to look flat, ensure all white ensembles are perfectly tailored

Create dimension by experimenting with layers

Embrace structure to define the body but don’t be afraid to experiment with contrasting cuts should you be layering. As seen here the clean lines of the white blazer off set the soft draping architecture of the dress

Juxtapose different materials to create dimension

Contrast all white ensembles with a statement piece of jewellery
