Welcome White Back to Your Wardrobe: 5 Effortless Options

Welcoming white back is fun. At first it’s hard for me to incorporate white back into my weekly wear, but once I get the ball rolling it is fun and easy. I love mixing white with bright colors, and sometimes wearing a white blazer over an older dark summer dress produces a perfect pop of color. A quick fix with a simple white splash!

Every year beginning in mid-March, I start wearing white pants to transition myself back into white mode for the warmer months, and I like the crop, skinny jean as an option. Pair this with a bohemian style top for summer.

I know some people believe wearing skinny jeans is a dreadful option for them, and for those who avoid them, I have an alternative wide leg pant. Whether you opt to wear this pant to the office or elsewhere, it is obviously a fancier option than its denim counterpart.

Do you need a nice white jacket to complete a look? I definitely recommend the White House Black Market well-made white jacket. It is very sleek and I love the stitching, which is immaculate for this brand. The cut and flair creates a perfect white jacket to accompany a dress or for you to wear as a suit jacket.

I can never get away with wearing a double-breasted jacket, but if you are smaller chested, then I think it’s an extremely flattering cut. It is a wonderful way to accentuate a smaller upper body while pairing with a wide leg pant or a pleated skirt.

Next up is a classic ivory dress (close enough) that is just down right stunning. The texture and the embellishments make this simple dress stand out. The dress is one of those dresses where you find yourself wishing they had it in different colors so you can purchase more than one-flawless design!
