We have no doubt that when rap duo Outkast first sung the words “so fresh and so clean-clean”, they were talking about the all-white trend — first seen on the runway of Spring 2011, and loved by street-style power players ever since.
Not only does wearing an all-white ensemble during the warmer months reek of put-together chic, but it’s a testament to the wearer’s simple and unaffected taste.
Take Elin Kling for example. Timeless, crisp, clean and minimal; Elin rocks her all-white ensembles with confidence. Like us, she knows a fresh modern palette of white-on-white will never dull. Miranda Kerr looked effortlessly elegant in an all white Stella McCartney outfit on the catwalk at this year's Paris fashion week.
Contrary to what some colour-happy fashionistas might believe, wearing an all-white outfit is brave. Not only will you stand out from the crowd with blinding visibility (ever read from a piece of computer paper in the glaring sun?), but you’ll be taking logistical risks too. Coffee, wine, makeup will become your enemies for the day.
The benefit? A memorable, fashion-forward look that time will never fade.
Take advantage of the Northern hemisphere’s online sales and get investing! A crisp blazer, palazzo pants and a hint of gold? Pure fashion royalty. A white silk dress paired with wedge sneakers? Preppy perfection.
