shirt / Nordstrom (similar), jeans / Nordstrom (similar here + here), shoes / Sam Edelman, tote / Madewell
I've been really vibing on this "all white" look that's been popular for quite some time - so the other day I decided, why not? It's already bassssically Summer here in AZ, so I might as well try to look like I'm keeping cool (even if I'm sweating in 80 degree weather in MARCH).
Now I know that normally the key to keeping this look chic is adding in texture, but I figure that every rule is meant to be broken. Besides, I think there's always more than one way to do things, so here are a couple tips for pulling off all white:
1. Texture (duh, I just said that above!). Break up the color monotony with some interesting textures, whether it be lace, linen, or woven. Though I don't have any noticeable texture between my jeans + tee, my studded shoes add a little bit of interest to the ensemble.
2. Add a pop of color for balance. I chose to pair this all white outfit with my ever trusty black Madewell tote. Not only is this tote good for carrying anything and everything, but I feel like it also has this magical ability to instantly make any outfit look chic. If I had a white bag along with everrrrything else white, it would've looked weird. But hey, add some black in and suddenly it's fine.
3. Watch your shades. Although you'd think that black is black and white is white, we all know things aren't so black and white (heh heh). What I'm saying is, make sure you're shades are matching, and that you're not caught wearing a cool white shirt with some cream pants...because that would just look weird. Keep it all the same shade, grab your pop of color and some fun jewelry, and you're ready to go!
I love love love the all-white trend. Would you rock it?
