Whiteout: 3 Ways to Wear Summer's Favorite Neutral

It goes without saying: white is a summer staple. It’s crisp, clean (at least in the morning), and – when worn with bold pops of color and texture – anything but boring. Here are three ways to work it into your wardrobe, stat.


Lady in red (& white): Red is alluring on many levels. Pair this hard-case clutch with old-fashioned beading for a striking juxtaposition.

All mod: Black and white is as timeless as it is modern. As is leather and lace. Go with ankle-strap pumps for extra height and a one-shoulder dress or asymmetrical hem for added dimension.

Keep an arsenal of belts: Nothing breaks up an outfit quite like a belt. And this ribbon belt in particular could just as easily double as a head scarf.
