There used to be a saying when I was younger that I never quite understood: Never wear white after labour day. Although I never really got the jist of the phrase, I ultimately knew from a young age that wearing white was not only hard but somewhat took a specific type of flair and sophistication. Luckily we don’t have to wait until after labour day to prove the saying wrong, instead we have the entire spring/summer season to take this trend and make it our own. Here are a few tips to wear the white and minimalist look with ease.
- Invest in an article of white clothing that can be used in various outfits. For example in my set I used a blazer by Elizabeth and James Conrad. Although it’s expensive, always having a staple piece in your wardrobe makes wearing the trend easy
- Add a hint of color somewhere, whether it’s with multi-color shoes or accessories; that’s really all it takes to stand out.
- Make it look and feel relaxed. Wearing white often symbolizes comfort and confidence with your style. Don’t wear white shorts if you feel they’re too tight – because trust me – people will know that you feel that way.
