Wearing white in the Summer is a no-brainer and certainly nothing new. Why fix something that isn’t broken? You don’t always need color to create a striking outfit. Although it isn’t Summer right now, whenever I travel to warm destinations, the no-white-after-Labor-Day rule goes out of the window. This look I wore in Bridgetown, Barbados was classic, yet fresh with my usual flare of cool femininity.
This clean-slate color can be intimidating — with all the potential for coffee spills, lipstick stains, or having your hot dog drip onto you — but putting together an all white look can be just as simple as an all black look. Things get much easier when you get the basic essentials, whether simple or chic. One white item in your outfit can be a bit expected and sometimes drab, but a full white ensemble? It’s actually quite daring and eye-catching.
I wore a tube top and pant look from Meshki (the Diya set). The Australian brand specializes in minimal, yet striking designs to accentuate the curve of the woman’s body. This is simple from the front, but has gold buckles across the back that hug against the curvature, adding sophistication and modern edge. Being that I spent a considerable amount of time tanning while traveling, I couldn’t wait to wear an outfit to bare my shoulders and back. To keep with the theme of Summer classics, I paired my look with white sandals (BooHoo), which feature studded details around the perimeter of the shoe and perspex, clear straps across the top of the foot, creating a leg-lengthening effect and a break in color (or lack thereof).
