A New York Love Affair :: White Out

All white, everything – not just for sneakers anymore. Wearing all white isn’t as easy as pulling off the all black look, but with a few easy tips you can embrace one of this season’s hottest trends.

Tip 1: Texture.   Like any outfit, too much of the same can be a bad thing. But playing with different fabrics and textures is a great way to add some dimension to your sleek look.

Tip 2: Fit.   To me, white exudes a crisp, clean feeling. Build off of that by creating a look that’s full of smart, structured pieces. If you want to wear a flowy top, pair it with a tailored pant or structured jacket. It’s all about creating a well-balanced look, fit for your body.

Tip 3: Avoid matching.   You know how they say: “it doesn’t have to match, it just has to go”? That’s how I feel about pairing your whites. Your look doesn’t have to be all perfectly curated pieces in the same shade of ultra-white. Just keep it in the same family. Mixing in variations of ivory or off-white adds another layer of interest to your look.

Tip 4: Accessorize.   Your all white look can be the perfect backdrop for a statement piece should you so choose. Throw on a brightly colored clutch or even bold shoe for maximal effect. Or keep it more minimalist with just a pop of color on your lips. The options are endless.

Tip 5: Confidence. This will be your best accessory. It is definitely a bolder style choice, and the chances of you spilling are much higher, but if you own it you’ll have no problems looking hot while staying cool.

Are you ready to test it out for yourself?
