White–The Forever Trend

White–The Forever Trend

It never gets old, it’s classic, it’s everywhere.  That probably means it isn’t a trend by definition, but each year all the “fashion experts” extol the virtues of white as if it were a new idea!  What is new are the fabrications that come out every year featuring different textures, weaves and surface treatments.  If white doesn’t favor your skin tone, use it on the bottom topped with your most flattering colors.  Classic combinations for summer include black and white, navy and white, red and white, red, white and blue, bold fruit colors with white, etc. If high contrast isn’t for you, team white with pastels. I think that look is so refreshing on a hot sticky day.  It just makes you feel cool and those who look at you feel cool too!  Follow below to see all the different ways to integrate white into your summer wardrobe. 

Classic in fabrication and in color,  laundered white linen works for tops, skirts and dresses.

Casual for day dresses, shorts, skorts or tops, white pique is great on the court or off.

How about a clean pair of white pants or crops for day or evening events?  Cotton satin works up beautifully and has just a bit of sheen for a dressed up look.

Some of the most delicate fabrics come in white like this embroidered cotton lawn.  Great for hot days and evenings.

    I like the white knits you have in stock, too.  I appreciate the descriptions of the opacity of your white fabrics.
