This Spring and Summer wearing head to toe white is not just for brides. The white on white trend was all the rage on Spring/Summer 2013 catwalks, with editors and bloggers mad for this cool, sophisticated and modern look.
Alexander Wang’s duffel coat, crop top and skirt – with the panels held together with invisible fish-line embroidery – is the epitomy of urban chic and is easily one of my favorite looks. Calvin Klein Collection’s 3 piece suit is another favorite; the structured cropped ankle pants paired with the fluid, feminine blazer is divine, and the cone shaped bra top under neath gives it just the right amount of edge.
I’ve curated a couple of white on white looks – with interchangeable items for added variety. 10 Crosby’s, by Derek Lam, lace up detail pant (back ankle) worn with Generation Love’s perforated tee, and Top Shop’s fab motorcycle jacket can be worn with either Jenni Kayne’s D’Orsay flat, or Quess‘ pointy toe pump. It’s a fantastic urban edged ensemble for both day and night. Like wise, Mango’s shift dress with hip belt and the motorcycle jacket can be worn with the flats for a more casual vibe, or paired with the pumps for an evening affair.
This summer you won’t want to leave home without Top shop’s faux-leather motorcycle jacket. Not only is it the creme de la creme when sporting the white on white trend, but for those days when you crave color or your favorite pair of blue jeans it will be the cherry on the cake!
