Turn On The Whites

In the dark about the latest spring color trend? Turn on the whites! Always a signal that warmer temps are around the corner, the re-emergence of bright whites each spring is as exciting as the sight of the first spring crocuses. Although often overlooked as a “bright,” white can be as eye-catching as the boldest red, blue or green when worn all together. We like it paired with traditional “brights” like cobalt, kelly green, or fuchsia, but head-to-toe white ensembles are the freshest color combo from the runways. As long as you’re not attending a wedding, we recommend this look for any of your other spring flings!

1. Alexander Wang Chunky Oversize Cardigan ($650)
Chunky knits are the perfect way to make your way from winter to spring. This Alexander Wang has contrast stitching at the sleeves and dark button closures that provide plenty of visual interest for this goes-over-anything layer.

2. Marni Flower Applique Dress ($1719)
Two worlds collide in this Marni dress. Flower child-inspired appliqués meet a conservative full-skirted Mad Men-esque shape for a visually-inspiring creation. The short hemline ensures that your look is anything but old fashioned.

3. Citizens of Humanity Ava Straight Leg Jeans ($154)
Crisp, clean, and certainly chic, these straight leg jeans go from working-for-the-weekend to getaway glam. Pair with a blouse and pumps for work and a striped tee and flats for beach-combing.

4. Miu Miu Wood Platform Sandals ($459)
There’s something so retro about these sandals. Maybe it’s the wood platforms or perhaps it’s those sweet little bows, but the 50’s pin-up girl just met the 70’s disco queen with these fresh-for-summer shoes.

5. Brian Atwood Wagner Peep Toes ($709)
Look a little closer….these Atwood pumps have a white eyelet overlay. Sweet meets sassy with this combination of eyelet, five inch heel, and platform. Pair with your flirtiest cocktail dress or some cropped white jeans.

6. 3.1 Phillip Lim Edie Bow Bag ($850)
Finish in style. This neutral white bag completes a head-to-toe white ensemble or is the perfect ending for any other outfit. Luxe white leather shoulder bag with bow flap and of-the-moment stud details.
Notte by Marchesa Strapless Column Dress with Ruffles: Simply stunning. This Notte by Marchesa needs no introduction. Its sweetheart neckline and cascade of chiffon ruffles speak volumes on their own.
