Designers have embraced white this year in a big way. And they are offering many kinds of looks. Fendi is more sophisticated. This simple sheathe or the sculpted jacket to the right are pure fashion.
Other designers use all sorts of embroidery and ruffles to make their summer statements.
Chloe offers 2 visions in white. One is an embroidered blouse that will work almost throughout the year. The head to toe look is a bit more romantic.
Valentino does something very pure. A classic shirt dress offered in white, with a signature belt. The white handbag is another way to add white to your look.
There are many shirtdresses this season. This long sleeve dress is accented with a shoulder full of mini-ruffles.
Dries Van Noten mixes embroidery on an oversized white shirt that is paired with wide white pants.
This shirtdress comes with a pre-twisted waist detail that works with the flared sleeve to elevate a simple design. The hat is also very this season. You won’t want to be without one.
Fendi also does an exagerated pussy-bow on a dress, and adds small black mini-polkadots.
It is interesting to notice how many of these dresses have long sleeves. This dress has tiers of ruffles for at the bottom. A nice contrast.
A ruffled tee shirt looks new. This one mixes jersey and a woven solid.
Alexander McQueen is known for other-the-top fashion. This dress is a fanciful example. The ruffles move as you walk.
Carolina Herrera does a simpler number. The defined waist and the longer length are demure. The ruffled portrait collar make if sweet and naif.
Sports and uniforms are also represented this season. Join Team Gucci with some crisp whites trimmed with the signature stripes.
Or buy into tennis whites from Miu Miu.
Gucci does more sporty-chic looks that are very sports influenced. Referenced classid Europen staples, the pieces are fun.
Halter dresses and sundresses are also around in white. Chances are this years record heat will extend into at least September, So do not tuck this dress away after Labor Day. Notice the hat too.
This summer dress offers a very bare-backed vision. The lightweight fabric is worked into light layers. The tiered dress to the left is also a comfortable summer look.
This sundress from Proenza Schouler is very cleanly detailed. A crisp look for this summer.
Cecile Bahnsen does an off the shoulder poofy look with spaghetti straps to make sure the dress stays in place. Worked in soft fabric, it is very romantic.
This off the shoulder look is rather a mess.The neckline is a shirt collar split and opened up, with more straps. That’s interesting, the skirt however is too complicated.
This lean lace look is far better. It has this seasons peep-a-midriff. The fabrication is interesting. And it does work with the hat.
This broderie anglais dress is a nice study in contrasts. The heavy-weight zipper and gold buttons bring the dress into the world of fashion.
Broderie anglais also makes in onto replaxed short-sets. A fun update that is clean and fashionable, with its little bit of midriff reveal.
These shoes can only be from Simone Rocha. She recreates lace in leather and plastic. No mean feat,
You can also wear white for cocktails and parties. Carolina Herrera makes it easy with simple dresses in beautiful fabric. Sophisticated summer dressing.
I am arfaid that this look is a bit overwhelming in white. It could work in black or a deep rich color. There is just a little too much going on to be spot-on fashion.
This dress from Erdem has a lot going on in a restrained way. There are many details, embroidery, bows, shirring and more. But the details come together in a beautiful piece.
The Row play around with dressy volume in this interesting summer outfit. You wear it, it doesn’t wear you.
And one can always count on Alaia to do an intricately worked body-con dresses. His signature look impresses.
