Summer Whites And 12 Ways To Wear Them

Let’s just put it out there, wearing white is something of a risk. There’s just so much that can go wrong; food spills, small children, dirty chairs, ack! And yet, I can’t help but do it anyway. There’s just something so classic and fresh about white that I think it’s time we throw caution to the wind and get a little adventurous!

I’ve pulled together a few different looks for a bit of inspiration. Click through the gallery below and tell me, are you ready to try out some summer whites?

    Another chic way to wear a white blazer. Pair it with a black top and your favorite pair of jeans for amazing results. It might feel a little "Miami Vice" at first, but I guarantee you'll be feeling it in no time.

  • White Blouse With Denim Cutoffs 7 of 11
    White Blouse With Denim Cutoffs
    I'm not such a fan of the booty shorts I've been seeing everywhere, but these longer cutoffs look casual and somehow slightly sophisticated when worn with a clean white button up.

  • White Paired With Bright 8 of 11
    White Paired With Bright
    Not into neutrals? Pack a punch by pairing white with any bright color like this kelly green blazer for example. The coral belt and coordinating green and black striped top underneath make for one stylish look. Just remember that layers are your friend. The blazer can be removed when the sun gets hot, and put back on when the nights cool off.
