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.
