In honor of Memorial Day I’ve put together a list of the quintessential white basics every devoted fashionphile needs this spring/summer. There is something about the warmer days that causes us to gravitate towards the clean, pure look of white. Now that you “can” wear white, such a silly rule and one I suggest ignoring (I’ve been wearing white for weeks now) you’ll want to make sure these basics are hanging in your closet.
Since summer should be about a time of ease, today’s list is full of no-brainers – purchases you won’t have to think twice about. I’ve even included not one but two white dresses, they live on opposite sides of the price spectrum but both are equally awesome! In today’s market there are a million different t-shirt vendors, all with their own white t-shirts. I chose Kain’s white silky tee because you can dress it up or down just as easy. For your more basic white tee needs try James Perse, Top Shop or even Hanes (I can’t live without their men’s ribbed tanks).
If you’re planning on throwing or attending a BBQ this Monday, either the Level 99 skinny jeans or Victoria’s Secrets Cheeky shorts will fit the bill perfectly. Have fun!!
