This season, bright white has taken black’s place as fashion’s default shade. Succumb to the pristine appeal of a white midi skirt, fresh from the FW17 runways: from Gucci’s sports-inflected pleating to 3.1 Phillip Lim’s flamenco-style silhouette, these hardworking ivories will become the new cornerstone of your closet. We forecast a total whiteout.
Head-to-toe white might sound like a bold – and brave – sartorial choice, but when it’s done right, it looks effortless. The key to attaining everyday elegance (as opposed to channeling Saturday Night Fever) is choosing languid pieces. Yes, they should be precisely tailored, but the fit should be relaxed, as should you. Accentuate the insouciance of the look by pushing up your sleeves.
