White on white has to be one of THE chicest looks especially on a hot day and with summer just around the corner I’m preparing to wear a lot of it! I’m always so envious of those girls who can wear white head to toe while drinking red wine and eating spaghetti but unfortunately I’m not one of those women!
While I absolutely love a white look on other people I’m a realist when it comes to wearing it myself. I have two messy little kids. I always have food or make-up on my hands so for me a full white look is just not going to happen. Not to give up and inspired by the spring/summer ’17 collections at Chloe, Tibi and Dior I went in search of a white on white (WoW) compromise for the messy girl in all of us.

I recently picked up this white blazer in Mango. I did question whether I was mad going for such a white jacket but I fell for the 3/4 length ruched sleeves and longer length. Plus it looks great with jeans, shorts and dresses so a versatile piece that I’ll likely wear year-round. I’ve been finding so many great pieces in Mango recently. Anyone else?
I added the lace top with frill collar for full-on Victoriana vibes and white sneakers to up the white focus. My go-to boyfriend denim and a contrast bag with the most amazing handles complete the look!

Guide to Wearing White on White (WoW)
- Play up the textures when you’re layering the same colour, you know, so that it’s not completely boring. Lace, wool, linen and sheer fabrics work so well with a plain blazer like the one I’m wearing. Also stripes and polka dots are great for breaking up a monotone look.
2. WoW on your feet – it’s easy to be scared of white shoes, they’re bright and let’s face it they’re going to get dirty but they look stunning especially when paired with an all white outfit. Wear yours with a maxi dress, a ruffle midi skirt or wide-leg trousers for full WoW look.
3. Optimise your accessories – white sunglasses are so on trend right now and are an easy way to update your WoW look. Check out these amazing pairs below.
