The colour of new beginnings, of wiping the slate clean, so to speak. The colour that is most complete and pure, the colour of perfection, purity, innocence, wholeness and completion – the colour white.
There are many things in this world that stimulate the senses, white isn’t one of them, however, it opens the way for the creation of anything the mind can conceive. This is how I wanted to step in spring/summer 2018 – little did I know I would do it literally, by wearing an all-white look.
Coffee spills, ketchup drips, lipstick smudges, a full face of make-up or hugs from someone with all full face of make-up are a few of the reasons that come to mind when thinking of pulling off an all-white look. The prospect of your outfit, in fact, your whole day getting ruined makes wearing an all-white look is truly stressful.
But if you step away from the stress of all of that and not fret about wine spills and lipstick smudges on your all-white clothes. All white looks are one of the chicest iterations of monochrome dressing – it’s pure, simple and a blank canvas waiting to be written upon.
In many ways, the colour creates a sense of order and efficiency, a great help if you need to declutter your life. And in your wardrobe, versatility. A button-up white shirt, a basic white T, one fancier blouse and a pair of white trousers can do so much for your wardrobe – much like the looks I’m wearing, one pair of white (versatile) trousers gave me 3 different looks, all with its own meaning.
How to wear an all-white look? Have confidence in how you’ll carry yourself, invest in matching pieces which make it easier to wear and wear a look with a sense of structure and shape.
