If there is one thing the hot and humid summer compels us to wear, it’s the all-white look. It is fresh, cool and timeless. Fashion brand Lovebirds, with their white flare pants, slit dresses and crisp shirts have inspired us to revisit the white-on-white look. We asked the brand’s designers Amrita Khanna and Gursi Singh ways to wear this look, without doing it wrong. Here’s what they had to say |

Pair different textures together | We believe that playing with different fabric textures helps you stand out. When wearing white on white, aim for separates to be of different textures – think white organza with white poplin.

Elevate the white shirt | Make it feminine with some frills but keep the silhouette boxy with organza sleeves – styles we are gravitating towards in designing our new line of resort wear. Unlike a regular white shirt, this one will make you stand out.

Update the wardrobe with white essentials | White undergarments, white t-shirts and a pair of white linen pants are a must. These are recurring white classics that we love from our collections. A white baggy pant in any material is also important to take you from one season to the next. That white shirt dress though – you should probably get rid of it now.

Wear layers | Layering is a great way of styling especially when wearing white-on-white. If you layer whites, you can style them in indefinite ways!

Check for transparency | White clothes can often be see-through. Make sure you check the piece thoroughly before wearing it.

So ladies, ditch the dark hues this season – it is time to embrace an all-white ensemble. Tell us how you are wearing white-on-white summer. We’d love to know.

Thank you for keeping your standards high
