How To Dare To Wear White This Summer

Summer is just around the corner, if not pretty much here already.

For us fashionistas, it means warmer weather and the opportunity to introduce lighter colours and styling to our everyday wardrobe.

White clothes just aren’t welcome during the Winter (although there is nothing wrong with it, but there’s just something about the glowing bright shade whilst the weather is murky and dull that doesn’t quite work). But many people feel that white clothes can be dangerous territory altogether.

Let me tell you – white clothes are a brilliant way to show off your complexion, or if you’re anything like us, then that weekly fake tan. They make you look bright and beautiful, fresh and modern, and I white is actually a trending color this season.

Still not convinced you can rock the white trend? Check out my #trendingwhite style inspiration below, for the ultimate tips on how to wear white this Summer with Zaful items…

White Denim

The comfiest of trousers look amazing in white. Believe us when we say a white wide or straight leg pair of jeans will elevate any outfit. Style up your white jeans in monochrome colours, teamed with trainers or a heel and you’re good to go.
These Distressed Skinny Jeans with Pockets are a flattering skinny fit, but come with a rip design to give them a little more creativity. If you want to team your white jeans with a crop top but don’t feel like baring your belly, opt for a pair of High Waisted Ripped Jeans, which sit at the waist and look perfect with a bandeau or crop top.

The White Skirt

This versatile item is perfect for mix-and-match, you can literally wear an asymmetrical white skirt with any colour summer top. Switch out the accessories for a different styling each day, we love the combination of either a ruffle style mini skirt, or a tea length ruffle skirt. Team with cami’s, crops, and everything in-between!

The Slit Ruffles Mini Skirt will look great with practically anything, from a loose fitting kimono cover up like the Batwing Sleeve V Neck Printed Blouse or a cute bright yellow off-shoulder top.

Ideal for holidays and walks on the beach, this Tuve-Top And Maxi Skirt Two Piece Prom Dress set looks super pretty and a great way to wear white in lightweight materials.

The White Shirt

An oversized white shirt has always been a wardrobe essential, and the good news is you can use this trend for the Summer. If it’s oversized enough, you can even wear it as a dress or over jeans for everyday workwear. You can roll the sleeves up slightly to tailor the look, or team with black boots and oversized chunky jewellery to accessorise.
The good news here is that it’s totally OK to bring in splashes of other colours or prints. This Embroidered Oversized Shirt looks fab tucked into jeans, but would also work well tucked into denim shorts or a denim mini skirt.

Our favourite look is teamed with distressed denim cutoff shorts, like this look below.

This Button Down Plaid Knotted Shirt is also a gorgeous take on the white shirt trend. The faint plaid print gives it a relaxed look, and you can again easily team up with sassy shorts, like these High Waisted White Shorts, of a little skirt.

White Smart-Casual

A white jumpsuit or playsuit gives a real classy look that you can take from smart to casual in no time, and is the perfect holiday look for a city break weekend, or week-long beach holiday. Dress it up by layering a blazer over a romper style playsuit for an easy instant outfit, or wear alone with sunglasses and an oversize clutch for that beach break glam.

Or, opt for a white denim jacket for the daytime to make your look more casual. There are so many white outer wear items which can look great with white bodysuits without being to OTT.

The White Summer Dress

Last but not least- the white Summer dress is an essential holiday piece, that is literally a failsafe item. If you’re not into dresses though, don’t worry, we got you. Swap out for with a jumpsuit or playsuit as mentioned above, to keep you cool but still look hot.

Remember, if you’re a little worried about rocking the white trend, there are always more subtle ways to step into it. These including opting for off-white, cream and beige shades first, or teaming one white key item, like a t-shirt, with other shades to ease you into it.
