Summer has arrived at last this week and in many parts of Europe the temperature has gone sky high. Looking cool and fresh can be tricky, but wearing white is one way you can. I’ve created a mini white capsule wardrobe (though feel free to swap the pieces out for alternatives, you might prefer a skirt to trousers, for example) to see you through Summer. It will give you endless outfits mixed with the other pieces in your wardrobe. In the past you may have thought having too many high Summer pieces in your wardrobe wasn’t worth it, because you were only likely to wear them on holiday. However, we do seem to be seeing more high temperatures and longer stretches of hot weather and these pieces can be worn year after year until they need replacing.
White Capsule Wardrobe – The Pieces
In my example I have included:
Lace top – a dressy top like this can be worn with tailor trousers and skirts for a day or evening event or dressed down with jeans; white, blue or coloured.
Waterfall cardigan – Looks great with white or coloured linen trousers, jeans, shift dresses and wide leg trousers for a lightweight layer on cooler days.
Dress – a white dress looks gorgeous both day and evening on a hot Summer day. Just make sure you have a stain remover for any spillages!
Linen trousers – for me Summer wouldn’t be Summer without linen trousers. A white pair goes with any other colour tops you have in your wardrobe. I love white trousers with a white top and accessorised with gold, silver or tan. Alternatively add a bright colour or print.
Jeans – I love a pair of white jeans for cooler days that are still sunny. They look more dressy for evenings, than blue jeans too. Alternatively wear them with a relaxed linen top and a pair of espadrilles.
Trainers – a pair of white jeans are a wardrobe staple from the start of any good weather in Spring through to the brighter days of Autumn. Wear them with anything – jeans, shorts, linens, dresses and skirts. You can even pair them with a suit and a T-shirt.
Bag – a white, casual day bag will see you right through Summer. This one is the perfect size for weekends and holidays.
Jewellery – add pieces of jewellery in white or mixed with other colours like these silver tipped earrings.
