A couple of weeks ago I blogged about shopping for the little white dress, but your summer whites shouldn’t be restricted to dresses only. Shorts, pants, denim, tees, tops, and skirts… all these pieces look fresh and clean when worn in white, especially during the hot summer months. In fact, even a business suit looks great in white.
So expand your mind and your wardrobe, and shop around for some chic white fashion. Look for pieces that not only speak to your personality, but are also light in fabrication. This way you feel comfortable and cool enough to stylishly survive the sultriest of days. Customize your looks with contrasting pieces in bright colors – think cobalt blue and neon yellow – and depend on accessories to keep you looking rich, sleek, and unique.
I’ve curated a few summer white looks for you below. Give them a gander; use them for inspiration, and get to shopping for summer whites.
The classic white T-shirt is the go-to look for the summer. But instead of relying on the usual blue denim jeans, dress the look up with a feminine skirt and luxe-looking pumps. And a V-neck tee is always more flattering, especially if you’re a buxom beauty.

White pants or jeans are oh-so-intimidating, which is why when a woman wears them, it looks oh-so-confident. Fit is key. So really shop around for the perfect pair for your physique. You can go wide-leg, skinny, or even cropped. Any of theses styles work. Make sure you have the right undergarments for your white pants. Be it thong panties or supportive shapewear, ensure that you have no revealing underwear lines, and especially no camel toe. When you do find the perfect pair, take good care of them and wear them with pride. Featured: Calvin Klein Straight-Leg Ankle-Zip Pants, on sale for $40; DV by Dolce Vita Embrodiered Top, on sale for $61; Ice-Watch Neon Yellow Silicone Strap Watch, $99; Tiffany & Co. Three-key Pendant, $250; Steve Madden Logo Speedy, on sale for $40; and Joie Nice T-Strap Thong Flat Sandal, $125.
There’s something about a white midi-skirt that screams wanderlust. Maybe it’s because it’s the one skirt you can safely wear on your bicycle as you make your way to the farmer’s market. It’s long enough for modesty, but not too long that it will get caught in your wheels. A white midi skirt just seems like something Audrey Hepburn would wear in a romantic movie.
