White On White

12:29 PM

No color is more fresh or crisp than white, so when you wear the hue from head to toe, it results in an exceptionally stylish, high-impact look. Also being the one color that is highly relatble when it comes to summers, it looks just as good as a single item as it does on an entire outfit.
Wearing white separates is white-hot!
And because white reflects sunlight, wearing white-on-white gives you the advantage of being a little more covered up while still staying cool—perfect if you’re commuting to an air-conditioned office, or at an event that lasts into the evening. But besides the obvious challenges (ketchup, mustard, kids), wearing white-on-white can be tough to get right without looking like you’re dressed as a sexy house painter.

Here's how you could still do the white-on-white like a legit boss.

1. Mind the Shade
If you’ve ever attempted to match paint, you know this well: There are about a thousand shades of white. To look good together, your white separates should be within a few shades of each other. If you mix, say, a creamy ivory top with a bright snow-white jean, the white with more yellow or grey in it will just look dirty

2. Mix Your Fabrics
Unless you’re wearing a white business suit, you want your separates to go together, but not match exactly. Pair pieces in fabrics that have the same vibe or level of formality and play with texture. For a boho look, try a filmy chiffon with soft cotton, for work-appropriate sharpness, try a semi-sheer silk top with a slick poly-blend pant. And your white denim can be dressed up or down with just about any top.

3. Keep the Accessories Subtle
If you’re wearing a LWD, feel free to pair it with brightly colored accessories, but if you’re playing with a mixture of whites, those bold colors are going to overwhelm the subtlety of the outfit. Instead, look for accessories in neutral colors like beige, tan, reptile or metallics like gold and silver.
