Ways to wear white

Wearing all white is not just for the bride, summer is made to show off your best white ensembles. Celebs make it look so effortless, but you too can rock white and still look your best. Whether you are wearing it causally during the day or making a dramatic entrance to your next soiree, here are some ideas to keep you stylish while sporting white!

Causal Shorts

Kendall Jenner promoted Brazilian clothing brand Le Lis Blanc in a white top, drawstring printed shorts that she elevated with a sharp optic white blazer and metallic strappy sandals. White shorts are a casual and clean look which are perfect for any afternoon. Style them like Kendall and you have just gone from day to evening.

Chrissy Teigen made a statement on the set of Extra in a crisp white draped shirt dress that revealed black skinnies underneath. A white piece paired with black is a easier way to look summer chic without having to commit to an entire white ensemble. When wearing white with another color, keep in mind that black will always let your white piece shine!
