White On White: The Go-To Look For The Season
By Yemisi Suleiman
White made quite an impression on the runways this season, from New York and London Fashion Week, to the recently held GTBank Fashion Weekend in Lagos; designers showed different ways to pull off the all white look. From runways to the streets, all white is becoming a popular choice amongst trendsetters.
Though it may seem like a tricky trend to pull off; there are plenty of ways that you can wear white on white and stand out, because no colour is fresher, or crispier than white. So when you wear the shade from head to toe, the result is an elongating and exceptionally stylish look.
But, if you are not quite sure how you would feel, or look in an all white outfit, start by mixing pieces of white with pieces of an off-white shade. Adding gold or silver accessories can also complete your look, making it runway-ready.
Whether you choose the runway look by pairing several white pieces, or go for a solid white dress, just have fun with your look ;do not be afraid to experiment with an all white outfit.
Here are six looks to inspire you.
Tailored White Pieces: White pants suit anchored with contrasting accents lend a sleek look.
Go With Neutral: Break up a monochrome ensemble by mixing different shades of white.
Lacy: The white lace is another classic way to wear the all white look, whether it’s a little white dress ,or white lace skirt and top.
Off White: If you are not comfortable with an all white look, throw on an ivory blouse and white jeans with a pop-of-colour.
Go Glam: Accessorise a sleek white dress with metallic shoes and clutch
Fringe Details: For a boho look, choose a white fringe top and white jeans, with gladiator sandals.
