Any season is the right season for all-white outfits. Whether you’re styling an all-white party outfit or heading out on a shopping excursion, the monochromatic look is fresh and modern and makes a statement when it comes to cool, confident style. Building a wardrobe capsule of white pieces provides the basis of putting together effortless all-white outfits any time of year.

Essential Pieces

Start with a basic white top that can be layered under a jacket, sweater or duster. The Beyond Basics Collection offers a variety of different styles that can be worked into your capsule. You may want to consider owning a few different sleeve lengths and different fabrics for wearing occasion flexibility.

For bottoms, include a dress pant and white jean at minimum, but add a short or skirt if you like to mix up different kinds of bottoms. Look for figure-flattering styles from The Beyond Travel™, Linen and Everyday Twill collections.

Sometimes a dress is most appropriate for the occasion, so adding a little white dress to your capsule will offer ease in putting together an all-white look. A timeless sheath is a good choice for versatility while an embellished style requires not much more than a handbag and shoe to complete your look.

The Add-Ons

Add interesting layers and texture with jackets, blazers, dusters and sweaters. Whatever your preference, be sure to choose versatile styles that help to pull your top and bottom together and balance out the silhouette.

As for shoes and accessories, here you can stay with a crisp, clean look by keeping to all-white for both or bring in a nude/neutral tone to add seamless elegance. On the flip side, adding a bold pop of color with a shoe or bag creates a dramatic contrast and adds edge to all-white style.
