It is not easy to be a person who loves to wear white in the summer and also to be a person who is highly prone to spilling coffee on herself, so I always keep a lot of this stuff handy and hope for the best. And I love the look of head-to-toe white, but find it works best when I break it up with bright (or dark) shoes and belts and other accessories. I own this tuxedo shirt from Nili Lotan and wear it endlessly once it’s warm out: it’s super-light and makes whatever I pair it with look nicely put- together.
A denim jacket looks so crisp in white, and I like the shrunken proportions of this one.
These straight leg cropped pants from Everlane would look fantastic paired with a simple white tee.
This gauze popover is so well-priced, and it just looks really breezy and easy to wear.
And how much do these carpenter pants remind me of seventh grade? Except they’re a good deal more well-cut than the ones I wore back then.
The waist tie here is a flattering touch; it’d be aces with a denim pencil skirt.
The clean lines up top on this dress balance out the flouncy bits below.
I’m close to pulling the trigger on these wedge espadrilles: they strike me as more sophisticated than your typical espadrille.
Some people stay away from linen shirts like this one because they wrinkle so easily, but I kind of like the way they look when they get a little rumpled.
Nili Lotan’s Tel Aviv pant is a favorite of mine—they’re both skinny-of-silhouette and slouchy in all the right places.
You can’t get a whole lot more classic than Stan Smiths, and while fancy designers like to create pricey riffs on them, I still think that nothing beats the original.
I’ve shown you (and own) this Veronica Beard ruched dress in black, but I think it’s pretty smashing in white too.
Nothing beats a pair of pull-on pants for ease of wear, and unlike some pants with elastic waists, these look good with a top tucked in.
The pintuck detailing on this top give it a slight peasant-y vibe, but it’s more polished than a straightforward peasant top.
And finally: a white linen pant makes for a nifty beach cover-up.
