Five ways to wear head-to-toe white

Wearing all white can be a scary prospect, but when the sun comes out and with the right styling, it can be a great, fashion-forward choice.

A completely white outfit will leave you looking and feeling cool throughout the day and night. Here are some ideas that should get you started when planning what to wear.

Five ways to wear head-to-toe white


These make styling simple by offering an all-in-one style solution that offers plenty of choice for all ages, shapes and sizes. They can be a really practical choice, too, as you’ll never have to worry about things like the wind whipping up your dress.

A white lacey jumpsuit is perfect for a special occasion or a night out. Just don’t wear it to a wedding – unless you know that the bride really won’t mind.

Maxi dresses

A white maxi dress is another great idea, ensuring that you don’t have to worry about whether your white skirt will perfectly match the tone of your white top. There are plenty of choices available at shops such as AX Paris. Just remember not to make the wedding faux pas; some brides really won’t appreciate anyone else wearing all white on their big day. There is some talk that weddings are too white on a number of different levels, however. Read about this at

Trouser suits

Trouser suits and tailored items in general are big news this summer, as is white, so it makes sense to combine the two. Look cool by opting for a relaxed fit, making you appear as if you should be relaxing on a yacht in the south of France rather than bashing out letters in an air-conditioned city office.

White jeans and t-shirt

White jeans are a great choice for summer, and there is nothing more on-trend this season than a pair of gleaming cropped, straight denims. Jeggings are also a good choice if you need a little leg lengthening, especially if you team them with a pair of killer white platform wedges.

Little white dress

Whilst a maxi dress is a hugely versatile choice, you won’t be short of choice if you would rather opt for a flirty, shorter number this summer. The shops are filled with LWDs right now, from cute babydolls with lace edging and prairie dresses with puffed sleeves to belted bodycon designs.
