I have been thinking about all white, or at lease mostly white and all light. It looks so modern. I remember when I used to think that white shoes were too nurse-like, now I think they are amazing. Moods change. As Laura said; We are all thinking about it together.
I love to wear white jeans. But you gotta be careful because they show so much dirt. Also, I am not a fan of the all white look. It makes you look like an orderly or a nurse. The white dress shirt and the white T -shirt are classics, and I love the aforementioned white jeans. But I think that the white pieces are best paired with a darker color, or a bright color.
I love all white. Aviator Nation has a white hoodie I’ve been longing after, but it’s so expensive ($186!) I just know I’ll spill tomato sauce all over it someday and never be able to afford another one.
Same as the previous comment – would love a shoot from a prep-school graduation. If you visit Sweden, this would be a lovely shoot – remember fondly dressing up in white with flowers in the hair……Beautiful!
Love the top two looks! The bottom left reminds me a little bit of a bleached out version of Wednesday Addams, and the bottom right guy just seems to be trying too hard for a “look”. Bahhh, I’ll give the last two credit for taking chances :)
All white, like all black, has to be well-tailored — otherwise, it loses its crispness and then, of course, the first thing you think of is a parachute. The only well-tailored white in this story is the woman at lower left, but then she looks like a nurse … at a mental institution. (Nurses in regular hospitals are dressing with surprisingly individual style nowadays.) BTW, white has tones too, and not everyone can wear blisteringly bleached white; in fact, sometimes slightly yellowed white is spot-on. (I have a pair of Italian white bucks that have aged to an incredible parchment color.) There is also the possibility of wearing a symphony of different white tones. No one here has thought of that. The real problem here, however, are all of the shoes are dead wrong, although I might give the glittery sandals a pass. Their shoe choices are guided, I suspect, by the desire not to look like service workers — that’s another problem with all-white — but in each case they’ve gone a little too far in the opposite direction, i.e., over-dressed. Think: what would Lauren Hutton wear, or the present-day Bardot tottering absent-mindedly in her garden. Think: comfortable, even worn or maybe even a little sloppy (as long as the white itself is sharply cut); think: degage chic!
In my country when somebody dresses in total white they say that he/she’s dressed like a ice cream maker!
I’m not a fan of it, not for this reason, I’m more for total black! But I agree total white can be very chic.
I think Oscar Wilde said that whoever dresses in white can look like a gentleman… http://www.webelieveinstyle.net
I LOVE wearing all white for summer…the crispness, ease, femininity, and romantic poetry of white is always spot-on for spring and summer. Four different looks, but all fantastic. Featuring an all white on my blog today too! :)
I love white clothes (except white shoes, make my feet look like I’m a clown) but practicality usually says no. I’m an artist so white in the studio not a good idea, we own a dog so pooch hair is everywhere, and we live in the countryside so mud and the like. I’ll still wear white but it makes me move like Grasshopper in the opening credits of Kung Fu when he had to walk on rice paper and leave no trace.
All I have to contribute is the following advice: if you are wearing all white, please ensure it is opaque unless you are ok with your friends and co-workers discussing your choice of underwear. One of my co-workers wore an expensive looking layered flouncy full white skirt to work on Friday…and sadly the top panel was translucent and we all saw her thong…and birthmark…and part of her tattoo. Long day.
Sounds kind of sexy. But white does show every flaw. I love wearing it when I feel my most fit and in shape. Its probably psychological, its not like I am lumpy or something, but It feels like you are more exposed somehow.
